Hyaluronic or botulin?

Hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally contained in the skin tissue. It has the function of retaining water in the tissues themselves, which is why it becomes turgid.


Botox, on the other hand, is a natural toxin that temporarily inhibits the action of the muscles, resulting in partial paralysis.


Both substances are used to correct wrinkles, but they do it differently. Hyaluronic acid fills wrinkles and expression lines, while Botox relaxes them. Botox also has a preventive purpose. As a matter of fact, the movements of the facial muscles determine the appearance of wrinkles in the long run. By temporarily blocking these muscles, we do not allow wrinkles to form.


Botox is usually used in the upper third of the face (frontal wrinkles and crow’s feet), while hyaluronic acid can be used all over the face.
