Fillers and Botox are the two most Popular Cosmetic Treatments across the Global Beauty Industry!
These treatments are usually done in a doctor’s office and are minimally invasive in nature. Dermatologists use injections to carry them out. Tiny, and regulated amounts of purified bacteria or soft tissue fillers are injected to help address various health or cosmetic concerns. They do not involve surgery but require local anesthesia to work safely.
But what’s the Difference Between Botox and Fillers in Dubai, Abu Dhabi & Sharjah? Are they safe? How much do these injectables cost? If you have so many such questions in your mind, the blog post can help. Read on:
Botox vs. Fillers:
Botox is an injectable that uses purified bacteria to freeze the muscles. It can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and fine lines resulted from facial expressions. In contrastingly, Fillers uses special skin-plumping materials to improve facial fullness which has been reduced due to aging. They are usually injected into lips, cheeks, tear trough, and around the mouth. I’d like to mention that the results of botox and fillers are temporary. They last between three and eight months and require special maintenance.
The injectable paralyzes the affected muscles for some time. Without the movement of the muscles, Botox may be used to treat a wide array of conditions. You can get them to treat wrinkles, neck spasms, hyperhidrosis, lazy eye, or overactive bladder. According to one study, botox shots have also been shown to be an effective option for chronic migraines.
The soft tissue fillers are noted primarily for creating a fuller appearance in the face. They are injected into the aging face to correct nasolabial folds, dark circles, smile lines, and acne scars. But as I stated earlier, the effects of fillers diminish over time. You may want to repeat the treatment to maintain the desired outcomes. In general, the lifespan of fillers depends on the type of tissue filler used and the severity of the skin flaw.
The results of your botox treatment will likely show up after a week. Side effects include swelling, bruising, and discomfort. Patients need to talk to the provider about the ways to tackle these side effects.
Fillers are considered more permanent than botox. Their effects last longer (usually eight to nine months). Still, you’ll need repeated treatments to maintain the results.
Like botox, fillers also carry side effects. Some most common side effects are infection, itching, redness, scarring, and numbness. It’s recommended to use ice packs at the injection site right after the treatment.
Costs of Botox and Fillers:
Both botox and filler are becoming increasingly popular in the UAE. They do not require surgery and are performed at the provider’s office. Unfortunately, neither injectable is covered by insurance. It’s mainly because they are done for cosmetic purposes.
Botox treatment at dynamic clinic typically ranges from AED 1200 to AED 1800 depending on the number of injections used, and the dermatologist’s skills.
In general, Fillers in Dubai cost between AED 1400 to AED 1900.
