What is the difference between temporary and permanent fillers?
Temporary filler substances like hyaluronic acid are natural and absorbed by body in 4 to 6 months. They are the most common fillers used. Advantages are that they can be injected safely for very fine lines as well and side effects are very rare and reversible. Permanent fillers like polyacrylamide gel are not absorbed by the body so result is permanent. It can be injected only deeply and will work for different situations than hyaluronic acid.
What is better for wrinkle treatment, Botulinum toxin or fillers?
Each one has its unique role. Only on examination can it be determined which will work best. Sometime both are required simultaneously.
