Do you know the difference between dermal fillers and botox?

Not all of us truly know the difference between dermal fillers and botox so before you venture to your local clinic for facial rejuvenation, here’s a quick summary.  Or if you haven’t got time to read, just call 02392382000 and one of our friendly team can answer your questions.

(Be sure to ask as many questions as you need answers to during your consultation with the doctor before treatment.)

Are these treatments aimed at getting rid of wrinkles?

Yes, both help to reduce wrinkles for the face and neck.

What is a dermal filler?

A filler is made up of ingredients which are injected into the skin and, over time, absorbed by the body.  Unlike Botox, it is injected into a skin layer.

What is Botox?

Botox is a common term used to describe botulinum toxin A, a drug which is used both medically and cosmetically to relax muscles.  It is injected into a muscle.

 

 

 

 

 

 

How do dermal fillers work?

They are used either to fill a line or wrinkle, or to build volume in areas of loss.  Often both methods are used to restore youthful looks.  A skilled doctor will know where to use the product to best effect as placement is crucial to get a great outcome.

Do you need to be a doctor to carry out treatment with these products?

As Botox is a prescriptive drug, either a doctor or nurse prescriber is essential for treatment.  Dermal fillers are not governed in the same way, however experience and skill is a must.

How long do dermal fillers last?

Fillers vary depending on the product being used but some products last up to 48 months.  Always ask about the product being used and it’s longevity.

How long does Botox last?

Botox can last up to 6 months depending on the quantity, dilution and your metabolism!  Beware of any practitioner insisting you visit every 3 months!

What should you pay for these treatments?

Botox treatments start at £180 for one area up to £300 for 3 areas (forehead, between brows, and crows feet).  Treatments can vary in price from clinic to clinic so ensure you are comparing products and quantities if you’re looking at price.  It’s never a good idea to go for an unbelievably cheap price – when it seems too good to be true, it probably is!  Botox by Allergan is a premium product with a higher cost so not all practitioners will choose to use this.  It does contain a higher quantity of botulinum toxin A so is widely considered to be a premium product!

Filler prices generally start from £250-300 and are used by the vial in ml.  Any reputable doctor is open about the quantity used.

If you need to know more or would like to book a consultation for treatment call 02392382000 or email info@changesclinic.co.uk.

p.s. At Changes we use Botox by Allergan or Dysport and a range of dermal fillers lasting 6-48 months.   02392382000
