Can I Get Botox® and Fillers at the Same Time?

Can I Get Botox® and Fillers at the Same Time?

If you’re unhappy with the visible signs of aging, you may be thinking about aesthetic treatments to align how you look on the outside with how you feel on the inside. With so many treatment options out there, it can be hard to select one. 

The good news is that you don’t have to pick just one. In fact, getting complementary treatments at once can enhance and lengthen the duration of your results. 

Two of the most popular anti-aging treatments, Botox® and fillers, are actually quite the dynamic duo. Botox targets fine lines and wrinkles while fillers make your skin smooth and plump again. 

At Manhattan Dermatology, our providers are committed to helping patients in Manhattan get the most out of their anti-aging treatments with the dual effort of Botox and fillers. Take a moment to learn more about getting Botox and fillers at the same time. 

What is Botox?

Botox has remained the most popular aesthetic injectable since it was approved for cosmetic use in 2002. This treatment uses a neurotoxin that relaxes your muscles, stopping them from contracting deeply and causing your skin to fold. 

This results in less movement in your skin when you make normal facial expressions, allowing your wrinkles and creases to smooth out. The result is a more youthful face.

Botox addresses forehead furrows, bunny lines (wrinkles on the nose), crow’s feet, and frown lines. At Manhattan Dermatology, we work with you to determine your Botox target areas to help you reach your aesthetic goals. 

Getting regular Botox injections helps prevent deeper lines from forming or worsening as you age. But Botox is only safe and effective when administered by an experienced aesthetic or dermatological provider, like our team at Manhattan Dermatology.  

What are facial fillers?

Facial fillers, also called dermal fillers, inject gel-like substances below the surface of your skin. Your body naturally makes and processes these substances, which include ingredients like hyaluronic acid, poly-L lactic acid, collagen, and calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA). 

This means fillers are safe for use and have few side effects. Your body uses hyaluronic acid, for example, to lubricate your skin and maintain tissue and skin hydration. It does this by binding with water molecules

Another great thing about fillers is that they stimulate your body’s natural production of collagen, a protein that creates strong fibers in connective tissue and repairs skin damage, including age-related damage. 

Fillers treat many skin issues related to aging. They plump, lift, and add volume to your cheeks, provide lip enhancements or smooth lines around your mouth, smooth laugh lines, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and folds around your mouth and nose, and can correct marionette lines. 

There’s not just one type of filler, and the different types have different properties best suited for specific problem areas. 

At Manhattan Dermatology, we offer fillers like Juvederm®, Restylane®, Belotero®, and Sculptra®, and we work carefully with you to recommend the best one for your needs. 

How do these treatments work together?

When you combine Botox and facial fillers, you get better results than just one on its own. We examine your skin and talk to you about your goals to build a personalized treatment plan that suits your needs. 

Your plan may include Botox to erase forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, and frown lines, with fillers to add volume in areas like your cheeks and temples, as well as restore elasticity. These two treatments work side-by-side to bring your youthful days back. 

We may also suggest other anti-aging services to enhance your results even more. For example, laser resurfacing can improve the appearance of your skin and stimulate the growth of tighter, firmer skin fibers.  

To learn more about Botox, fillers, and other anti-aging treatments, schedule an appointment online or over the phone at the Manhattan Dermatology location nearest you. We’re located in Murray Hill and Midtown East, New York City.
