Some things are made to go together, Botox® and fillers is one of them. That is right; Botox® and soft tissue fillers make the perfect pair. There is never any competition between these two injectables. On their own, each can contribute to a smoother, more youthful appearance. When combined, Botox® and fillers are the best way to fight the signs of early aging. Individually, Botox® and dermal fillers have very specific outcomes. Botox® is a neurotoxin; used to paralyze the muscles that cause certain facial lines and creases. Dynamic wrinkles, caused by repetitive expressions, are temporarily relaxed and smoothed with the toxin. Botox® can eliminate forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines for up to three months. Unfortunately, the benefits of Botox® only solve half of the wrinkle equation. Soft tissue fillers work differently from Botox®. They restore moisture and volume to the tissues, plumping lines that form from lax, aging skin. This means that fillers work best when addressing static wrinkles, or those that occur as skin loses its elasticity and shape. Fillers are excellent for filling in nasolabial folds, adding contour to the lips. Additionally, soft tissue fillers can decrease hollow areas under the eyes and improve volume along the cheeks or jawline. While some people may suffer with only one type of facial line, either dynamic creases or static wrinkles, the majority of us will see a combination of the two as we get older. Used in tandem, Botox® and soft tissue fillers form the perfect nonsurgical facelift, addressing the volume loss, skin laxity, and deep wrinkles that come from years of facial expressions.
