Dermal fillers and wrinkle reduction injections

The world of injectables can be a confusing place, and with so much in the media this month about dermal fillers and wrinkle reduction injections there are lots of myths that need to be cleared up. Safe treatment is educated treatment, and here at APSARAS Clinic in Coventry, we want our prospective patients to be aware of the differences between the two most popular forms of injectable anti-ageing.

Not all anti-ageing treatments are created equally, and the two most requested forms of non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatment are easily confused. While one is designed to fill lines and wrinkles, the other is essentially used to prevent new lines from forming. They are usually used in different areas of the face and offer totally different results. Which you need is explained during a consultation with the experts here at APSARAS Clinic in the West Midlands.

Dermal fillers differ from wrinkle reduction injections in that they are used to selectively fill lines around the mouth, eyes and nose. There are numerous brands of dermal filler, each offering unique attributes, so a full consultation is advised to find out which (if any) is suitable. Dermal fillers are increasingly popular in the anti-ageing aesthetic treatment arena and APSARAS Clinic treats both men and women with the injectables.

Dermal fillers are versatile and can be used to plump and volumise the skin, in turn created a rejuvenated appearance to the skin. Treatment takes less than half an hour in most cases, and a full assessment will be carried out to determine where the injectable filler is best suited. Wrinkles and lines around the eyes such as crows feet can be drastically reduced, as the acid substance hydrates as well as fills the crease.

The results are relatively instant, although you will see the full result in a week or so post-treatment, when the filler has settled. Results last up to 18 months, so are a really useful tool in terms of anti-ageing and skin rejuvenation.

On the other hand, muscle relaxing injections and wrinkle reduction injections use substances such as Botox Cosmetic to freeze the facial muscles. The paralysed muscles are left unable to move substantially, allowing the skin to remain non-creased.

Wrinkle reduction injections cannot fill lines and crows feet, but they can stop new ageing lines from forming. Popular places to have muscle relaxing injections administered include the forehead and the side of the eyes.

Dermal fillers and muscle relaxing injections or wrinkle reduction injections can be combined to form a super anti-ageing injectable team. Many patients at APSARAS Clinic decide to undergo a mixture of the two treatments in order to get the best results. They form a powerful duo, so a consultation is imperative before you can go ahead with cosmetic treatments of this nature.

Whilst the two forms of anti-ageing injectable are different in their offerings for patients, their risks and limitations are often quite similar, due to the injectable nature of the treatments. Risks associated with ANY injectable form of facial rejuvenation treatment include:

  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Loss of sensation/feeling
  • Bruising or bleeding
  • Risk of infection or rejection
  • Uneven results

Both dermal fillers and wrinkle reduction injections are safe in the right hands, so the key to quality treatment and long-lasting results is choosing an injectable expert that understands the rewards as well as the limitations of this form of anti-ageing treatment.
