Botox and dermal fillers are needle-injectable substances that make different aesthetic touches on the face. Botox has an effect that freezes the muscles in the area where it is applied. It can help minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles caused by our frequently used facial expressions. Dermal fillers are used to remove the wrinkles and lines that have already appeared on your face, giving fullness to the thinned areas of the person who have lost their elasticity due to aging. Dermal filler contains ingredients that plump up the skin. It is applied to the skin with the help of a needle or cannula.
