The Benefits to Botox and Fillers VS Skincare

People have different ways of taking care of their appearance; this could be a skincare routine or undergoing cosmetic treatments. There are several cosmetic treatments that are being carried out in the world today. Some are surgical while others aren’t that invasive such as Botox and fillers. Botox entails using certain purified bacteria to freeze muscles which minimize wrinkles. Fillers on the other hand are substances added to areas such as lips that have thinned due to aging.


Botox and fillers

Botox majorly works on correcting wrinkles or lines (upper face) caused by facial expressions which are done by injecting toxins directly to the facial muscles in order to restrict movement. Dermal fillers literally “fill” or add volume to the aging areas of the face such as lips, cheeks, and eyelids. The benefits of these procedures entail:

  • The facial volume increases

The procedures, including dermal fillers and botox, don't involve surgery, making them less invasive options for achieving a facelift and restoring your glow without going under the knife. However, it is important to be aware what are the side effects of botox and dermal fillers.

  • Results are immediate

After undergoing the Botox or fillers procedures the changes are visible immediately compared to having a skincare routine which tends to be gradual. It however requires you to follow the schedule and treatment advised by your doctor in order to achieve continuous positive results.

  • Non-surgical

The procedures don't involve surgery making them less invasive. The dermal fillers combined with botox result in a facelift that restores your glow without going under the knife.

  • Always glowing

Botox and fillers treatments use natural extracts such as hyaluronic acid which naturally adds the skin’s volume that gives it a youthful glow. As you age, facial muscles especially cheeks begin to sink and appear dull. Botox also adds to the glow as the treatment freezes muscle movements, therefore, minimizing the appearance of wrinkles and also preventing deeper lines from forming.        

  • Treatment for tension headaches

Away from cosmetic value, some people get botox treatment for headaches. At times, tension builds at the forehead muscles which can be treated by injecting the acid which releases the tension on the forehead, neck, and shoulders.


The skin also needs to get all the care just like any other organ since it is frequently exposed to sun rays and other pollutants, by having a defined routine. Having healthy skin makes you glow and is also good for your health. The following are the benefits of skincare:

  • Slows down aging

As you age, the skin loses hydration and collagen. Therefore, taking good care of your skin can slow down the signs of aging such as wrinkles and dullness. After cleaning, moisturizing, and exfoliating your skin regularly, the aging skin gains back its elasticity

  • Protection

With a proper skincare routine, your body is protected from the harmful UV rays and other environmental pollutants which can cause blemishes, hyper-pigmentation, and also skin cancer. Also, a good skincare plan protects you from harmful bacteria and prevents acne. Skincare is also fun and relaxing, especially after a long stressful day. 

  • Maintains skin elasticity

The skin tends to lose its elasticity over the years which results in sagging. Also, the skin keeps shedding some cells throughout the day. Skincare can help in maintaining or restoring the skin’s firmness by removing the dead skin and replacing them with newer cells, giving you a bright look and an even texture.

  • It is better than correction

Having a skincare routine in place prevents possible skin problems which are expensive and also difficult to treat. In some cases, individuals are forced to undergo surgery to correct skin problems that could have been prevented through a good skincare routine. A skincare routine makes your skin more resilient since it repairs itself, this will also save you money. 

  • Boosts confidence

Skin with problems such as dark spots, acne, and sunburns can bring insecurities. Skincare procedures such as cleansing and moisturizing give you a bright look. Having this youthful glow will boost your confidence as you walk and you end up feeling great about yourself.

  • Reliability

Consistency in skincare is key to attaining results, just like exercises. With a defined routine, you are guaranteed results since the skin also responds gradually to these regimens through self-repair. 

To wrap it up, both botox & fillers and skincare result in a confident feeling and look. It is therefore important to weigh your options such as allergic reactions, cost, and so on before choosing which one to go for.
