Short Intro to Botox, Plus How Does It Work

Botox is the short name of Botulinum toxin type A. This is often used in cosmetics because it helps the muscles relax and it straightens the fine lines. It was originally used in medicine in the 1940’s, but a Californian doctor discovered its possible use in cosmetics in the late 1980’s. In comparison to other beauty procedures, Botox injections are less intrusive and less painful. Originally, they were used to fill in the small wrinkles in areas such as the forehead. Nowadays, they are also used for eyebrow lifting and for cheeks and nose reshaping.  Botox is also used for lip augmentation and in some cases for chin augmentation, as well.

Dermal Fillers: How to Use Them Properly

Dermal fillers are products mostly based on Hyaluronic acid. Similar to Botox, dermal fillers are administered through injections. They can smooth fine lines and give a beautiful shape to the face. Their effect is not permanent and they cannot be compared with aesthetic surgery, as they are less invasive, with a short term effect. Dermal fillers do not last more than one year, in most cases. However, they are great in mending frown or peri-orbital lines and have proven to be effective even in the case of perioral lines and marionette lines. They are also used in giving a better nose shape or in accentuating the cheekbones, all for a successful change of look.


  • Both botox and dermal fillers have been used successfully for more than two decades now and proved to be of great help for women who desire to hide their wrinkles and small skin defects.
  • After a certain age women need to come up with the best solutions for a youthful and gracious look.
