The Benefits of Combining Botox and Fillers

Last Modified: May 29, 2023

Do you have stubborn wrinkles you want to get rid of? For many women, the thought of getting older is stressful as it is. And that's before you take into account how ageing affects your skin, especially on your face.

A study conducted a few years ago showed that 42% of women between the ages of 25 and 34 regularly worry about the appearance of wrinkles on their faces.

To reduce the appearance of ageing, they are willing to undergo various procedures. Fortunately, gone are the days when surgery was the only option.

Today, there are a variety of effective and safe non-surgical cosmetic treatments that you can turn to. And at the top of this list are Botox and dermal fillers. However, many women find it difficult to decide on one. Why not have both?

If you are ready to take the fight to your wrinkles, a solid 1-2 combination of Botox and fillers is your best bet.

Want to know the benefits of combining Botox and dermal fillers? Read on, because this is beauty gold.

What is Botox?

Botox injections are pure and clinically stable forms of Clostridium botulinum toxin. It is the same toxin that you get from the soil, dirty water or poorly preserved canned food.

In large quantities, botulinum toxin can kill you. However, in small amounts, it is enough to correct wrinkles. It does this by paralysing your facial muscles and nerves. This causes fine lines to soften or even disappear.

Botox can correct signs of ageing caused by muscle movement. This effect is due to its ability to "dissolve" dynamic wrinkles.

These occur in areas where the muscles move a lot like around the eyes, lips, brows and along the forehead.

Botox is not a permanent solution as the body breaks it down over time. Generally, the muscle relaxing effect of Botox can last for about 3 to 4 months.

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are different types of substances that can be injected under the skin. They give the skin more volume and fullness. These fillers are a combination of different body-compatible chemicals such as hyaluronic acid.

What we like about fillers is their ability to treat different skin ageing concerns. Click here to learn more about how your skin can benefit from dermal filler treatments.

Dermal fillers are generally safe, but you need to talk to your injector about your expectations. This is critical to ensure that you are satisfied with the final outcome.

You will be stuck with the same look for at least six months, so you want to make sure everything is right.

Benefits of Combining Botox and Dermal Fillers

If you're one of those people who can't decide between Botox and fillers, why not use both? We're sure you'll get more out of it if you use both for your anti-ageing needs.

Below are some of the most common benefits of combining Botox and filler injections.

It's more than just correcting wrinkles

The signs of skin ageing go beyond wrinkles. There are other problems such as volume loss and sagging skin.

You can use Botox to address all the skin wrinkles on your face. With fillers, you can then add restore fullness to some areas like the lips and cheeks.

With this combination, you get the full effect of both procedures and don't have to settle for the results of just one.

Each product compensates for the weaknesses of the other. Combined treatment with Botox and dermal fillers is actually very comparable to a surgical facelift. Botox can also help to address other issues such as migraines.

Botox can prolong the lifespan of dermal fillers.

We love fillers for their anti-ageing properties. They can quickly eliminate the major signs of ageing - deep fold, volume loss and loss in facial contour. However, there's a BUT.

Dermal fillers, especially our number 1 recommended HA filler, don't last forever. You have a maximum of 6-18 months before you need another treatment.

Another concern is that some areas of the face age faster. This can lead to imperfect changes the closer you get to your follow-up treatment appointment.

If you combine your Botox injections with facial fillers, you can prolong how long your fillers last.

If the fillers are applied to an area of the face that you move around a lot when you make facial expressions, the anti-ageing effects of the filler tend to wear off more quickly.

Botox will keep the key facial muscles in these areas relaxed so your skin lies smoother and the fillers last longer.

They offer a more flexible anti ageing plan

People know that artificial "Botox" look. People know if you've gotten Botox You want something discreet and can allure anyone who looks at you.

Botox and dermal filler treatment can make your cosmetic procedure look as natural as possible.

An experienced injector can make you look 10 to 20 years younger without making it obvious you had some work done.

Fix dynamic wrinkles caused by constant muscle movement with Botox. Smooth out static wrinkles and give your face back its lost volume and contour with fillers.

Choose both Botox and fillers to do the job

For many years, people have debated whether to choose Botox or fillers. One does the job that the other cannot, so this should never have been an issue.

Thanks to groundbreaking advances in the field, we now know that you can use both.

If you want to combat the signs of ageing, you should opt for combining Botox and fillers. This procedure can make your appearance more natural and make you look years younger.

For the best result, make sure that your injector is an experienced professional who's thorough and has excellent training.
