Facial injections are extremely popular and are used to help tighten skin, remove wrinkles, and more. However, what most people do not know is there are a number of different facial injections and each differs from the other. For example, two of the more popular types of facial injections are Neurotoxins and Dermal Fillers. Most people assume these two injections do the same thing and just have different brand names. However the dermal filler is more like Juvederm while Neurotoxins is more like Botox. Skin And Body Refinery would like to share more about Neurotoxins and dermal fillers and how they are different and the same to better help you determine which is better for you.

Dermal Filler Injections

A dermal filler is an injection that is pumped into an area under the skin that has lost volume. A dermal filler works by filling in the lost volume, which provides more tightening of the skin. A dermal filler is a gel like substance that is made from a naturally occurring substance known as hyaluronic acid. The main purpose of a dermal filler is to provide a more natural and relaxed look while filling in areas that has lost its volume. Dermal fillers are also used to stimulate natural collagen that is already in the skin. Dermal filler can help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. The Dermal filler is only a 30 minute procedure with very little down time. A single round of dermal filler lasts several months at a time. Often after your first application of the dermal filler you only need touch-up work once a year. Some of the common uses for dermal fillers are:
• Adding Volume to Lips
• Removing Bagging Bottom Eye Lids
• Fill In Hollow Areas on the Face
• Remove the Appearance of Fine Lines and Wrinkles
• Soften Scars

Neurotoxins Injections

Neurotoxins is an injection that is designed to relax the muscles under the skin. When muscles become tense they are often responsible for fine lines and premature wrinkling to develop. Neurotoxins injection is just that a neurotoxin is injected under the skin that helps to relax your facial muscles and provide a softer appearance. Neurotoxin injections help to reduce and prevent fine lines and wrinkles. Neurotoxin injections take between 15 to 30 minutes to be applied and lasts between 3 to 4 months.
