What is the difference between Hyaluronic Acid Lip Filler, Dermal fillers and Botox?
Hyaluronic Acid Lip Augmentation is a needleless lip filler process that infuses hyaluronic acid serum into the skin through a pressurized device, which then enters the top layers of the skin. This cosmetic procedure is typically for those who are interested in trying hyaluronic acid treatment to improve collagen production within the lips, as well as certain fine lines or scar tissues, but who are nervous to undergo a treatment that uses needles.
Dermal fillers, the majority of which are hyaluronic acid-based, use a tailored serum to ignite collagen production and skin cell rejuvenation. They rely on the use of a needle to access the middle layers of the dermis, which leads to collagen production with longer lasting results than lip infusion. Dermal fillers are often used for not only lip augmentation, but also cheek augmentation that creates fullness in the face and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and scar tissue (such as that of acne scarring).
Botox is another kind of injectable that acts as a freezing agent for muscles within the face, forcing the muscles to relax and therefore reducing or eliminating the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines temporarily. Botox treatments are typically maintained every few months and can help you to appear younger and wrinkle free but, as Botox involves limiting use of muscles, it is not recommended for use on the lips.
