The Benefits of Combining Botox and Dermal Filler Treatments

Combining cosmetic treatments such as Botox and dermal fillers can offer additional benefits and longer-lasting results for some men and women wishing for facial rejuvenation. These injectables can improve multiple skin concerns at once and work well to complement each other. At Plastic Surgery of Virginia Beach, we offer a variety of injectables that may be used together to achieve your desired results.

Lengthen Your Botox Results

Botox is a neuromodulator injectable made with botulinum toxin type A, a neurotoxin that immobilizes the muscles responsible for forming certain dynamic wrinkles. This neuromodulator can improve horizontal forehead lines, vertical frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet at the outer edges of your eyes.

Neuromodulator injectables smoothen lines and wrinkles at their source by temporarily freezing the underlying muscle. Botox results typically last three to four months and require maintenance treatments but combining Botox with dermal fillers can lengthen your anti-aging results.

According to some research, dermal fillers such as those made with hyaluronic acid may help Botox results last longer. The combination increases how long the filling agent stays in the treated tissues. The dual mechanisms that “reflate” or add volume (dermal fillers) and relax muscles (Botox) provide comprehensive facial rejuvenation.

Address Multiple Issues at Once

While Botox focuses on dynamic wrinkles caused by repeated facial expressions, dermal fillers operate differently. Our Virginia Beach medical spa offers Juvéderm,  Restylane Kysse, Restylane Refyne, the RHA collection as well as other types of dermal fillers. Combining Botox with one of these fillers offers a fully customized approach unique to you and your cosmetic concerns.

Juvéderm, Restylane and Revance are hyaluronic acid dermal fillers that use a reformulated version of the compound naturally found in your body’s connective tissues to fill in depressions and imperfections in the skin such as fine lines and wrinkles. Restylane Kysse was created for lip enhancement and also works to smoothen perioral lines found about the upper lip. These fillers provide immediate results for facial lines and wrinkles and add volume to multiple face areas.

Radiesse is a dermal filler that uses calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA), which is also a natural compound found in your bones. The CaHA used in Radiesse is biosynthetic, meaning no animal products are used in its manufacturing which lowers allergy risks and negates the need for skin testing required for other fillers. Radiesse is great for moderate to severe lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth, loss of volume in the cheeks and frown lines. It can also be used to improve facial contours and for hand rejuvenation. This filler offers immediate results that continue as the CaHA pushes your body to create more collagen and elastin.

Kybella contains deoxycholic acid that dissolves fat. This filler does not add volume but destroys fat cells in the submental area where the “double chin” settles with age and weight gain. The naturally occurring substance liquefies the fat, which is then absorbed and eliminated by your body.
