Yes, You Can Get Both – and Here’s Why
Botox and dermal fillers work nicely together because each anti-wrinkle injection is designed to tackle aging symptoms in different ways.
Here’s how: Botox is an FDA-approved injection that works to target forehead wrinkles, frown lines, and even crow’s feet. Botox accomplishes this result by blocking nerve signals with a safe neuroprotein. This prevents forehead muscles from actively engaging in the micro-movements that can exacerbate lines and create wrinkles, like furrowing the brows. This is known commonly as the eleven lines, vertical lines that show up on your lower forehead
Dermal fillers are FDA-approved injections that use hyaluronic acid (HA) and other compounds to add volume to facial areas where folds and wrinkles have appeared. The HA solution temporarily lifts the dermal tissue to add volume, thereby minimizing the appearance of deep lines and folds.
Because each treatment uses a different formula to improve the appearance of facial wrinkles, they are safe to combine in the same treatment session.
