The main difference between these two aesthetic procedures is that they have different mechanisms for smoothing wrinkles.
In addition to their composition, hyaluronic acid and botox also differ in the way they are applied and what they are used for.
So, botox is a solution that is applied to the muscle and directly relaxes muscle fibers, thereby preventing the formation of wrinkles. On the other hand, hyaluronic acid is a gel that is applied to different layers of subcutaneous tissue to provide volume or perform the necessary lifting.
The results of botox last on average 4-6 months, depending on age, health, and skin type. On the other hand, the effects of hyaluronic acid have a longer duration, ranging from about 4 months to a year.
