Botox vs. Fillers: The eternal youth?

Botox vs Fillers: The eternal youth? We do not know if eternal youth exists, but what we are completely sure of is that there are substances that allow us to improve the appearance of the skin. Both Botox and Hyaluronic Acid have great benefits that allow you to have a better appearance of the skin, from Mendoza Plastic Surgery we will tell you their differences, and also the great benefits of using these treatments. 

How do I know if I need Botox or Hyaluronic Acid?

This is a question that many people ask themselves when deciding which treatment should be performed, today we will solve it!

If what you want is to temporarily reduce and prevent expression lines what you need is Botox, on the contrary, if what you want is to improve the appearance of wrinkles or provide greater volume in the face what you need is Hyaluronic Acid filler.

Botulinum Toxin

Botox or also known as botulinum toxin, is a substance that relaxes facial muscles and helps to reduce expression lines, its main function is to block muscle movements providing a great result. If what you want is to reduce wrinkles on the forehead, between the eyebrows or around the eyes and pronounced expression lines, you are a good candidate for this treatment.

The duration of the treatment is approximately 3 to 4 months, there are formulations such as Daxxify that are more expensive per unit and report a duration of up to 6 months but the results are mixed; from Mendoza Plastic Surgery we recommend maintenance sessions every 3 months to prolong the effect.

Fillers or Hyaluronic Acid

The Hyaluronic Acid filler is used to provide a more youthful and voluminous appearance to the facial skin, its main benefits are: reduce wrinkles on the forehead, eyes or mouth, conceal nasolabial folds, increase thin or sunken lips and give volume to the cheeks or chin, in addition to providing shape and projection to the nose.

The results of this treatment can be seen immediately, and they last from 6 to 18 months, but you must keep in mind that periodic sessions are required to maintain the desired effects.

The use and application of these treatments should be administered by trained professionals, Dr. Mendoza has the experience and knowledge required to provide this injectable treatment and is waiting to make you your best version!
