What is the difference between Dermal Fillers and Botox?

Botox and dermal fillers are cosmetic treatments given through injections, usually in a doctor's office. They are minimally invasive, meaning they do not involve surgery. That is where their similarities end, however.

Botox contains purified bacteria that freeze muscles. In doing so, Botox can help minimize the appearance of lines and wrinkles caused by facial expressions. Dermal fillers contain ingredients that add fullness to areas that have thinned due to aging. This thinning is common in the cheeks, lips, and around the mouth. People should be aware of the costs and risks of treatments and have realistic expectations of what they can do.

Profile Balancing

Any non-surgical aesthetics procedure changes your facial balance, proportions, and facial characteristics. Profile balancing is fast becoming a popular treatment and is defined as several different procedures being used in combination, in a bespoke way to balance the features of an individual (and especially in profile). Commonly patients seeking rhinoplasty or a lip augmentation may not be aware that on side profile they have a small chin. A small chin may become more prominent once the nose is complementary to the person’s face. Similarly, new lips can emphasise a smaller chin and throw out the balance of the lower face.

Profile Balancing is where a back-set chin is reharmonized in the correct ratio to the nose and lips, therefore, balancing out a side profile. Dermal filler can also be added to the chin to create a more defined and contoured look. Many of our clients opt for the jawline augmentation treatment alongside this one.  These two treatments tend to complement each other, giving a more structured and refined look.

Nasolabial fillers

The nasolabial folds are lines located on either side of the mouth. They are more noticeable when a person smiles. The folds, which are made of dense bundles of fibrous tissue and muscles, tend to become more prominent with age. As the skin becomes saggy and thinner, many people find that their nasolabial folds become more noticeable. Fillers cannot make nasolabial folds disappear, but they can make them less pronounced. They can also be used to help nearby skin look fuller and more youthful.

PDO Threads

Facial areas that can benefit from Threading are:
