Some things are made to go together: milk and cookies, salt and pepper, Botox and fillers. That is right; Botox Cosmetic and soft tissue fillers make the perfect pair. There is never any competition between these two injectibles. 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 Cosmetic and dermal fillers have very specific duties. 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 Cosmetic 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, and erasing acne scars. 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 Cosmetic 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. Botox and fillers are truly two peas in a pod. Together, they can create the closest thing to the ‘fountain of youth’.
