One of the earliest signs of aging is wrinkles and diminished skin volume that can be treated in a non-surgical way by injecting Botox and fillers. While Botox affects the muscle, the filler injection is used exactly as its name implies: to fill wrinkles or even eliminates any discrepancies in volume on the face. Products like Juvéderm or Restalyine can be used to fill lips and specific wrinkles on the face. Below we explain in detail both procedures so if you want to look younger and get rid of your wrinkles, read this article and get your free consultation.
Botox is an injectable medication (Paralyzing Compounds ) which by paralyzing the frontal or peripheral muscles, relieve spasms of the area and prevent muscle contraction, thereby reducing wrinkles and sometimes raising eyebrows and lasting between 3 to 6 months. . It is made from botulinum toxin type A which temporarily causes muscle paralysis.
Botox injection as a skin rejuvenation method is used as a safe and effective method to eliminate fine lines as well as wrinkles around the eyes. Of course, it can also be used to fix other facial lines such as frown lines or horizontal forehead wrinkles .
Injecting a small amount of this substance directly into the muscle reduces its activity and eliminates the lines that result from overwork on the face, making the face appear younger and more lively. It is a fast and relatively non-invasive method.
For the treatment of wrinkles on the forehead and near the eyes (in areas where muscle movement is not necessary) Botox can be used to prevent the development of wrinkles as well.
What are the precautions after a Botox injection?
1 hour after injection, the Botox effect begins to peak within two weeks.

fillers are synthetic materials that are used to add volume, change facial margins and fill wrinkles. Common areas where injections of filler are used include the neck, face, and hands, giving the appearance of a fuller, smoother and younger look.
They are mostly used to volumize deep skin lines and wrinkles, highlight lips & cheeks, fill pimples and to lift skin.
Fillers are among the most popular aesthetic products because the results of their use are immediate ,they have few risks and the recovery process is very fast following their injection.
Fillers are a quick treatment to prevent wrinkles, with the results appearing immediately after the filler is injected. Of course, fillers are not only used to relieve wrinkles and the effects of aging, but they are also used in volume, angular, and facial expressions such as highlighting the cheeks and highlighting the lips which has made them much more popular in the world.
fillers are made from various natural, human (human body) or synthetic materials. Fillers have different concentrations. But in general, thicker fillers are used to fill in wrinkles and deeper skin lines such as nasolabial lines (filling in laughter lines), filling scars or skin sores, and are also used to highlight cheeks, chin forming, or lip volume.
Temporary, semi-permanent and permanent
Note: Semi-permanent fillers and Temporary fillers are more recommended because permanent fillers have some side effects and they are very difficult to remove or reshape .
Temporary fillers for highlighting the cheeks, highlighting the cheeks, removing wrinkles:
These types of fillers are divided into two groups : Made of collagen and made of hyaluronic acid
Most of the temporary fillers on the market are made of hyaluronic acid. It is a naturally occurring substance in the body and decreases over time as it ages. Temporary filler injections to highlight cheeks and lips or to correct age-related changes such as wrinkles can produce very natural results. Most of these types of fillers remain 6-12 months.
Semi-permanent fillers for deeper facial lines:
Soft tissue fillers are used to treat deeper facial lines, and since they are semi-permanent, we may need to retouch or add a little more in the weeks following the initial injection. Semi-permanent fillers stimulate tissue formation and show their effects after a while. They usually last about 1 year and a half but sometimes the filler substance under the skin is felt and it accumulates in some areas under the skin or inside the lips which is not good.
Permanent fillers and complications of filler injection:
No permanent fillers have been produced so far without complications, and all permanent fillers put individuals in danger of displacement. Even if a permanent filler is removed by a physician, the skin may become dull and uneven . And this is one of the most important side effects of this type of filler injection.
