Botulinum Toxin and Lip Filler

Botulinum Toxin and filler are cosmetic procedures that can be applied quickly and have an immediate effect. Botulinum Toxin is a kind of poison obtained from a bacterium. Its area of ​​action is aimed at preventing mimic movements by paralyzing the muscle in the area where the wrinkle occurs. Botulinum Toxin application continues to be applied widely and popularly all over the world. It is a substance used not only in the cosmetic industry but also in the treatment of many medical problems. His first discovery in the cosmetics industry was after neurology applications.

Is Botulinum Toxin and Filler the Same?

Botulinum Toxin active ingredient is actually a kind of poison. However, since it is given only locally, it does not mix with the blood and does not pose a life risk. The active ingredient in the filling is hyaluronic acid. This substance only opens wrinkles where it is given and makes that area look fuller. This substance is generally used in lip augmentation. Hyaluronic acid does not paralyze any muscle and does not stop it from contracting. Sometimes the person’s own fat cells are used for filling. Both filler and botulinum toxin must be repeated at certain time intervals.

How Transactions Are Made

The operation must be done by experts. Before the procedure, the botulinum toxin or the area to be filled is cleaned and anesthetized with local anesthesia. Insulin needles are used in the procedure. The substance is injected into the areas with wrinkles with the help of these needles. In lip filling, the shape of the lip is determined first. The filler is injected into the lip with the help of an insulin needle. There may be some bruising in both botulinum toxin and lip augmentation procedures. This bruising resolves spontaneously within a week. Experts do not allow any complications because they know the facial line and the nerves passing through that area.

Where Is It Applied?

For Botulinum Toxin application, mostly eye area, eyebrow area and forehead are preferred. Since the forehead and around the eyes are the area where the muscles are used intensively, mimic wrinkles are common in this area. For lip filling, filling is done by equalizing both lips. Botulinum toxin treatment can be applied after lip augmentation. The effect of Botulinum Toxin and lip filler is about 6 months. The application should be renewed by repeating every six months, but this period may vary from person to person.
