Nowadays, there are a huge number of anti-aging
procedures that can significantly improve the condition of the skin. Among
anti-aging methods are the most effective – injection techniques.
Each injection technique uses a specific treatment.

different fillers: hyaluronic acid, Botox,
potassium hydroxyapatite, polylactic acid. Let’s focus on
hyaluronic acid and botox, since these are the two main drugs
used in fillers. And also we learn that Botox is better or

What is botox or poison for good
On the one hand, Botox is a very popular term, but on the other hand
On the other hand, few people know what it is. So what is
Botox and why is it called poison for the good?
Botox, or botulinum toxin preparations, is a Type A neurotoxin and
some other proteins that are produced during vital activity
bacteria Clostridium botulinum. Preparations based on
botulinum toxin are a weakened botulinum toxin.
The botulinum toxin bacterium causes a terrible disease called
botulism. When ingested, botulinum toxins
can block the work of muscles, causing their paralysis. Botulin able
inhibit impulses from the nerve to the facial muscle, which
contributes to the formation of wrinkles.
It is necessary to take into account the fact that Botox by itself does not eliminate
wrinkles, it only temporarily relaxes the muscles, not allowing them
to shrink. It is known that wrinkles created by facial expressions can
give the human face a large range of emotions. Man can’t
not show emotions, they are components of our lives, but, nevertheless
however, it is emotions along with ultraviolet and age that is
One of the causes of facial wrinkles.
And it turns out a certain paradox: rejoicing or admiring, man
adds another portion of facial wrinkles. How to be with this
dilemma? It is perfectly resolved by Botox. After the procedure
based on Botox, the skin becomes smooth, smooth, wrinkles

Sometimes a cosmetologist works with two drugs at once: Botox
and hyaluronate. In this case, the effect exceeds all expectations. With

On average, botulinum therapy is carried out three times a year.
It is noteworthy that after treatment with Botox, the patient

and hazards that do not have any serious
grounds. Yes, botulinum toxin is poisonous, but toxic
reactions in patients have never happened since

It’s all about the dose.
In order to cause a toxic reaction, the body must

Advantages and disadvantages of Botox
There are no perfect things in our world. All procedures and
drugs have their own little flaws. Let’s clarify again
Advantages and disadvantages of Botox.
Botox has several advantages:
- quick effect;
- absolute safety of treatment;
- ease of execution of the procedure.
Botox injections could be a universal remedy in treating
age-related skin defects, if not the following disadvantages:
- Botox smoothes only mimic wrinkles, with dehydration
skin and facial contour modeling it does not cope;
- temporary effect, unfortunately, the procedure of botulinum therapy
should be carried out regularly for a certain time.
As you can see, Botox-based injections have their own
disadvantages and their merits. For this reason, resort to treatment
Botox is decided by the patient himself, not forgetting the recommendations
Hyaluronic acid – the elixir of eternal youth
Nowadays, the term “hyaluronic acid” is constantly on the ear,
but few know what he is. Hyaluronic acid
substance that is synthesized by our body. In our
In the body, all cells are able to synthesize hyaluronic acid,
but most of all it is produced in the skin by specific
Connective tissue fibroblasts, which in addition to
hyaluronic acid promote the synthesis of collagen and elastin.
If we imagine our skin as a mattress, then the fibers
collagen and elastin are springs, and hyaluronic acid is
foam rubber that fills the space between them. Hyaluronic
acid has a remarkable property – to bind and hold
water It is known that one molecule of hyaluronate binds 500 molecules
One also has a so-called pamper effect –
ability not to give away moisture from the skin.
Hyaluronic acid is part of the extracellular matrix,
which fills the space between the cells and provides them
livelihoods. Hyaluronate provides transport
oxygen, nutrients, lymphocytes and other blood molecules to
the site of tissue damage and foci of inflammation. Thanks
hyaluronic acid skin at a young age looks hydrated,
elastic and elastic.
Unfortunately, over the years the level of hyaluronic acid in our
body is dramatically reduced, and aging skin is not capable

(from the outside) hyaluronic acid becomes justified and reasonable.
Hyaluronic acid is recognized worldwide as the most effective
remedy in the fight against signs of aging skin wilting. What kind
problems of mature skin eliminates hyaluronic acid? With certainty
can say that almost everything. And not only mature. Hyaluronic
acid perfectly moisturizes the skin at the very beginning of moisture deficiency,
when skin is young enough, but for some reason it happens
As we managed to learn from the above, hyaluronic acid
plays a huge and irreplaceable role in the body. Is becoming

For hyaluronic acid to promote processes

First, hyaluronic acid must be unstabilized,
that is, natural.
Secondly, the hyaluronate chain length plays an important role (
molecular weight). Hyaluronate weighing over 1 million daltons
will not be able to penetrate the skin. For this reason, the molecular weight
hyaluron should not exceed this figure.
Thirdly, the concentration of hyaluronic acid in the preparation should
exceed 15 mg per milliliter.
And fourth, hyaluronate-based drugs should be

Advantages and disadvantages of hyaluronic acid
From the above, we learned what hyaluronic is
acid, what it is and what role it plays in the body. Let’s more
once we clarify its advantages and disadvantages. Hyaluronic acid
possesses remarkable qualities:
- the ability to bind water, moisturize and nourish tissues;
- fill the extracellular space, giving the skin elasticity and
- synthesized in the body, promote collagen synthesis and
- universality of the molecule regardless of its origin
(natural or chemically modified) hyaluronic acid
successfully performs the same function.
All these qualities – a pledge of young, healthy and beautiful skin.
The lack of hyaluronic acid is one – individual
intolerance to drugs based on it. Unfortunately, though
rarely, but it still happens. In this case, patients are selected
other injection methods for the correction of skin defects.
Botox or hyaluronic acid
Having understood the concepts in detail, we can say that, like Botox,
so and hyaluronic acid are essential components

which is worse. These are two important denominators of the same equation, and between them.
you can only put an equal sign. Botox and hyaluronic acid
used in various injection techniques and used to
correction of certain skin defects. Botox is used in
fillers for the correction of dynamic (facial) wrinkles upper
parts of the face: in the forehead and in the eyes. It perfectly removes
wrinkles of “anger” on the forehead and crow’s feet around the eyes.
But Botox, unfortunately, is not effective in other areas of the skin.
He is not able to cope with wrinkles on his cheeks, flabby skin,
nasolabial folds, and improve facial contour. For filling
nasolabial wrinkles, dips on the cheeks using contour plastics

The only problem today is –
