Unless you’re undergoing surgery, total facial rejuvenation isn’t always possible with one treatment alone. That’s why many patients are turning to a ‘liquid facelift’ treatment by combining both Botox® and dermal fillers. Although the procedures work in two distinctly different ways, they can safely and effectively be used in conjunction for dramatic, long-lasting results.
Dr. Farole is a skilled surgeon who is knowledgeable in all aspects of facial anatomy and knows the precise depths to achieve natural-looking results. He routinely performs combination injectable treatments at Cosmetic Facial and Oral Surgery Center with successful outcomes. Combining treatments may be beneficial for you depending on your individual needs and goals.
Botox® Cosmetics act as a neuro-blocker for deep dynamic wrinkles. The injectable temporarily relaxes the muscles to give patients a more youthful-looking appearance. Botox® is most often used on the upper face but can safely be done anywhere throughout the face. Treatments take just a few minutes and can significantly reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and deep facial folds in just a few days.
Dermal fillers are designed to plump soft tissue. We have a variety of dermal filler formulas that are able to address a wide range of aesthetic concerns. In most cases, dermal fillers are used to correct lines and wrinkles on the lower portion of the face. Patients can quickly minimize nasolabial folds around the mouth and nose or instantly plump thin lips and sunken cheeks.
Why Choose Combination Treatments?
When done correctly, Botox® and dermal fillers compliment each other quite nicely. Patients can achieve total facial rejuvenation with a simple in-office visit. Injectables typically have very few side effects and require little to no downtime.
Other benefits of combining Botox® and dermal fillers can include:
- Total Facial Rejuvenation: There’s no one-size-fits-all injectable for every concern. Address all of your problem areas the right way for natural-looking results.
- Longer Lasting Results: Dermal fillers tend to break down more easily around areas where repetitive movement occurs. Adding Botox® can relax muscles and prolong the outcome.
- Preventative Care: Some dermal fillers can help boost skin’s health by improving moisture content. Botox® prevents extreme facial movements that make us look older. Combining treatments can be ideal for guys and gals who want to keep skin looking healthy and fresh as long as possible.
Of course, not everyone can benefit from pairing Botox® with dermal fillers. One treatment may be all you need to address your specific concerns. During your in-office consult, Dr. Farole will help determine a treatment plan to meet your end-goals.
