Why Should My Plastic Surgeon Inject Botox® and Fillers?

Want to fight back against the natural aging process? Sagging skin, fine lines, wrinkles, and creases combine to add years to the face, making you look older and tired. For patients wanting to get their wrinkles under control while also gaining extra volume in their face and neck, this method of injection is beneficial. Gain the upper hand on Father Time by combining the power of Botox® with a variety of dermal fillers.

Why Both Treatments?

Although both Botox® and dermal fillers such as Restylane® work towards reducing wrinkles and fine lines, they work in different ways. Botox® works by weakening the muscles in the face, which leads to fewer contractions in the skin, thus lessening the creases and folds in the face. By contrast, dermal fillers work to fill in wrinkles and lines all while adding volume to the face.

Combination Treatment

While Botox in certain facial areas (mostly the upper face) is very effective at smoothing fine lines, for certain deeper lines that persist even when the muscle activity has been lessened, combining the Botox with a dermal filler can be a very helpful adjunctive treatment with more optimal results. The tandem of these two different types of injectables yields a synergistic effect that will have you looking younger and more energized.
