Cosmetic Injectables are used for a variety of medical and cosmetic procedures. While Botox is used to reduce activity in the muscles which helps smoothen them out, fillers are used to fill out areas with where there's been depletion of mass.
When to Choose Botox
Botox is great for dynamic wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles means the wrinkles or creases that show up when you form an expression or any muscular activity, like a smile.
When to Choose Fillers
Fillers are for winkles and creases that aren't dynamic - they are just there even without muscular activity. Fillers are injectables that "plump" out those permanent creases.
Cosmetic injectables have also been clinically evaluated in male patients. More than 385,000 men in the U.S. received cosmetic injections last year, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. That's a 310% increase from a decade ago. Part of the reason for this increase is the popularity of cosmetic injectables amongst male celebrities- more men are open to discussing the work they have had done, it's no longer considered taboo.
