Botox Blog Forehead Wrinkles

One of the first tell-tale signs of age is forehead wrinkles, and it’s impossible to avoid as we age.

The saving grace is there are options for ridding your face of these signs of aging. So, which one is the best option for forehead wrinkles?

Juvederm and Botox are the two most popular products on the market today to help fight signs of wrinkles,t but these two products are drastically different.

Botox is a drug that partially paralyzes muscles.  As a result not being reinforced by continuous muscular contraction, the wrinkle fades.

Dermal fillers, on the other hand, and as the name suggests, fill in existing wrinkles.

So, which is the best choice?

Loss of facial tone is another reason why people may appear older. As time goes by, everyone starts to lose volume in their facial area. And, it’s this deficiency in volume that causes sagging of the skin. That is where dermal fillers and Botox enters the picture.

Are you unsure of which would be most successful in erasing the revealing signs of aging? With so much hype surrounding both, how does one tell which to choose?

SD Botox specializes in both procedures and is happy to explain the best treatment options for you.

What Can Dermal Fillers Do for Forehead Lines?

Dermal fillers are fresher on the scene so a few may be cautious to trust it. But, it could be a better selection depending on how acute your wrinkles are. Fillers, such as Restylane and Juvederm, are the most popular choice for patients.

In the area injected, the ingredient plumps out where the wrinkles may occur. Some see the filler as a healthier option than Botox. Dermal fillers rely on strong hyaluronic acid to work. The ingredients assist your skin in absorbing water, giving it a plumper appearance.

It can often take weeks for the product to metabolize. Throughout this time, your skin continues to smooth, and the filler stimulates. It is during the process that the skin begins making natural collagen.

The ingredients are a serum that fills lines using hyaluronic acid. These acids occur in your skin.

What are Static Wrinkles and Dynamic Wrinkles?

Static wrinkles are the ones noticeable when the facial area is at rest and relaxed. As we age, the skins dermal layer becomes thinner. The loss of fullness and elasticity manifest in static wrinkles.

Dynamic wrinkles can also develop and no longer fade when the face relaxes. By enhancing fullness to the dermal layer, dermal fillers assist with removing wrinkles. That process fills up the tissue, improving it to appear more youthful. It’s through this process that removes the creases.

These types of fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane, which is a hyaluronic acid, are both in demand. The benefits of the Dermal filler include some of the same as Botox, such as effectiveness. You will begin to see the results in a few days from the injection.

The serum hydrates the skin and fills the wrinkles causing it fade, leading to a refreshed look. You will begin to see results immediately and the result over time.
