Your face and body are as unique as your personality, so what works for you in terms of slowing the signs of aging and improving your skin’s texture differs from what works for someone else.
In some cases, Botox® may be enough to target fine lines and wrinkles and deliver the results you’re looking for. In other cases, a combination of Botox and a filler like Juvéderm® may work best to target several problem areas at the same time.
At Ashburn Laser & Skincare Clinic, our medical director, Nasrin Ejtemaee, MD, and our team offer a range of body contouring, anti-aging, and skin care treatments in Ashburn, Virginia.
Can you get Botox and fillers together?
Botox and dermal fillers address different problems and target different areas, so we can use them together. In fact, combining them can be the best way to make major improvements to your skin and overall appearance without undergoing more invasive and expensive cosmetic treatments.
If you’re considering Botox or fillers but aren’t sure which treatment is best for you, contact us to schedule a consultation. Even for minor cosmetic treatments like Botox, you should always look for a licensed and highly experienced esthetician to ensure that you get the results you’re looking for.
You now know that you can get Botox and fillers together. The question is whether you should, and when.
The difference between Botox and fillers
Injectables like Botox work by temporarily paralyzing the muscles that control the most expressive areas of your face. These areas are most likely to develop fine lines and wrinkles, such as around your eyes, mouth, and forehead.
Fillers plump up areas where your skin has started to sag and lose volume and elasticity. For many of our patients, we use Botox to minimize crow’s feet and frown/smile lines. And we use fillers to plump up the cheek area for a younger, smoother complexion, or to treat thinning lips.
When used together, Botox and fillers like Juvéderm can deliver dramatic improvements without plastic surgery or more invasive cosmetic procedures.
The effects of Botox and fillers fade over time, so they’re an ideal choice for you if you’re new to cosmetic treatments or want a more subtle and temporary solution.
Just like your skin care routine, your cosmetic needs change over time. You may start out with either Botox or fillers, and then find that combining the two helps to relax wrinkles and fill out hollow cheeks or lips.
