For a nonsurgical facial rejuvenation, men and women frequently turn to the combined benefits of BOTOX® Cosmetic and injectable fillers, sometimes referred to as a liquid facelift. While either BOTOX® or fillers can produce beautiful results alone, the two can provide a more comprehensive treatment when used in conjunction. Here are three reasons why.
1. Address a Wider Range of Wrinkles
There are two types of wrinkles: dynamic wrinkles and static wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles are caused by repetitive facial movements, and are most commonly found between the eyebrows, or around the eyes and mouth. Static wrinkles, on the other hand, are caused by a loss in facial volume, and commonly develop in the brow, lower face and jowls. While BOTOX® can smooth out frown lines and crow’s feet by relaxing the facial muscles that cause dynamic wrinkling, injectable fillers can restore lost volume to improve sagging.
2. Produce a More Natural Look
When only one type of wrinkle is resolved while other signs of aging remain untreated, some patients can end up with a look that appears less natural than results that are possible with a comprehensive treatment. By combining BOTOX® and injectable fillers, patients can achieve a naturally youthful appearance.
3. Develop Customized Treatments
Different types of fillers are designed to treat varying facial concerns, including deep scars or pits, lost collagen, thin lips and sunken cheeks. With the help of a skin care specialist, patients can develop a customized treatment plan that combines BOTOX® with the right injectable fillers for their unique needs.
