Fillers and Botox®: A Powerful Antiaging Duo

When it comes to looking more vibrant and youthful, many people are well aware of the cosmetic benefits of Botox® and dermal fillers. While these products are excellent standalone treatments for reversing the signs of aging, many people are surprised to learn that the two can be combined for a powerful combination that produces dramatic results.

Jennett McLane, master injector at The Spa MD offers a full range of cosmetic services to women and men in and near the Rochester Hills, Michigan, area.

There’s a reason Botox and dermal fillers are two of the most popular nonsurgical cosmetic procedures. Each year aesthetic specialists perform 10 million Botox and dermal filler procedures. Learn how we combine these two antiaging procedures.

The lowdown on Botox and dermal fillers

Botox is a highly purified form of the neurotoxin botulinum toxin A produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. When injected into precise areas by a specially trained aesthetic specialist, Botox relaxes the muscles responsible for facial expressions, effectively minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Botox can address:

Botox also reduces the formation of certain new wrinkles and lines.

As you age you lose fat and connective proteins in the face, resulting in a tired, sunken in appearance. Dermal fillers address this by filling in wrinkles, creases, and folds, leaving your face with a soft, plump, more youthful appearance.

Most dermal fillers use hyaluronic acid, a substance that your body naturally makes. Hyaluronic acid is a key substance found in your skin. It keeps your skin moist and lubricated. Aging skin has lower levels of this vital substance. By filling in folds and creases, our team can pump up your lips, sculpt your cheekbones, giving you a more youthful, dewy appearance.

Combining Botox and fillers for optimal results

Botox and dermal fillers make an excellent combination because they treat different types of facial skin issues to give you optimal results. While Botox relaxes wrinkles that result from repeated facial expressions, dermal fillers fill out visible areas that have lost connective tissue and moisture. This also means that dermal fillers address static wrinkles (wrinkles that appear even when the face is at rest).

To restore your youthful appearance our team can combine Botox and dermal fillers to address multiple areas of your face at once, including around the eyes, chin, and forehead. The best part? Combining Botox and dermal fillers prolongs the results of treatment. 

Botox slows the breakdown of hyaluronic acid by relaxing muscle movement. This helps your results last longer than when using these two treatments as standalone products.

Finally, Botox®and dermal fillers have a high satisfaction rate and are well-tolerated by patients. There’s very little downtime and results are noticeable within a few days.
