The Advantages of Botox & Facial Fillers

As we age, our skin gradually wrinkles and eventually starts to sag in certain areas, particularly on the skin and face. Additionally, the body’s supply of collagen and hyaluronic acid can become depleted, signs that the skin has become less healthy and resilient than it once was. Medicine, thankfully, isn’t without a solution for the deterioration of the skin that occurs with age: Botox and dermal fillers are used by dermatologists and cosmetic physicians to restore the skin’s vibrance and elasticity.

Cosmetic fillers don’t just make you look better, though. They can also boost your collagen and hyaluronic acid to youthful levels so that your skin’s natural balance is restored.

Cosmetic fillers & hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid is prevalent in the dermis, the interior part of the skin (as opposed to the exterior part, called the epidermis). It acts as a lubricant in the knees and other joints; when it diminishes, osteoarthritis is more likely to arise. It also helps the body recover from burns, scrapes, and lacerations.

Restylane contains hyaluronic acid, as do some other cosmetic fillers. The acid is sourced naturally from non-toxic bacteria, so it presents no danger to the human body. The infusion of hyaluronic acid helps the patient take advantage of its healing and lubrication properties.

Cosmetic fillers & collagen

Collagen is extraordinarily important to skin health. In fact, discluding water, it makes up 75% of the mass of the epidermis. It also makes the skin stronger and more resilient. A nutrition plan with hefty doses of Vitamin C can help continue the creation of collagen, but it cannot replenish the levels of collagen that were previously available.

As with hyaluronic acid, dermal fillers can help with collagen quantities as well: a 2007 study in Archives of Dermatology found that Restylane stimulates collagen generation by the body. Compared to some similar solutions, Restylane is long-lasting, with follow-up treatments needed only every 4 to 6 months. The researchers behind the collagen study posited that Restylane’s collagen-boosting capacity bore some responsibility for the longevity of its effectiveness.

The relationship between Botox and collagen is complicated. However, a 2012 study found that one type of collagen proliferated when botulinum toxin (the active ingredient in Botox) was introduced.
