How To Combine Botox and Dermal Fillers For A Dramatic Difference

August 10, 2021

Wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin are natural parts of the aging process made worse by factors such as sun exposure. You don’t have to live with these effects if they bother you!

Botox and dermal fillers are both treatments that can be used to reduce wrinkles on the skin. But what if you want more than just a little reduction? What if you’re hoping for a dramatic difference?

Learn how combining Botox with dermal fillers can do this and why our clinic at Westlake Village is the best place to get these treatments. 

Botox and Dermal Fillers Work Differently

Botox and dermal fillers are two cosmetic treatments that each have their own unique method of affecting the skin. 

Botox temporarily paralyzes muscles in certain areas, preventing wrinkles from forming as the face moves naturally when speaking or smiling. 

Dermal fillers work by filling up lines on your skin to make it look smoother again like how a plump person would appear next to someone who is very thin after eating well for a while.

Botox Can Help Fillers Last Longer

Dermal fillers are great for adding volume to the skin and filling in wrinkles. But don’t worry, they won’t last forever! 

Well-placed Botox injections can keep your results going strong longer than you think. The injectable paralyzes certain muscles that may cause a wrinkle or fold on your face from moving so much – it’s like free money when done right away before any dermal filler has worn off too far down into those creases we hate seeing underneath our eyes after getting up too early with sleepy eyes.

Combine Botox and Fillers in One or Two Treatments

Your Botox and filler provider may recommend having the two treatments at different times. In some cases, it is best to relax muscles first using Botox before adding a fillers treatment about 2 weeks later. That said, your aesthetic specialist might recommend both treatments in one session for people who are looking for faster results with more long-term benefits like 9-10 months versus 5-6 months of result time from just one procedure alone.

Age May Make a Difference

If you want to reduce wrinkles and maintain a youthful appearance, combining Botox with dermal fillers may be the best option for your age. They are more effective when used in tandem than just one or the other. 

For example, if we examine an older person who has been using solely Botox as their treatment of choice without any accompanying filler work then they might not see much improvement over time because fine lines will still appear after repeated injections due to facial movement- this is where the filling can help erase those imperfections! 

However, someone younger than primarily relies on only fillers could experience some relief from looking tired by adding something like botulinum toxin into their routine so it’s important at every stage of life which type of combination works best for you personally.

Botox and fillers are popular procedures among aging adults who seek to reduce lines in the forehead, tighten loose cheeks or jawline muscles, as well as smooth out wrinkles. Contact Setiba Medical Spa today at (805) 703-0000 for more information about these treatments!
