Can I Get Botox and Fillers at the Same Time?

Can I Get Botox and Fillers at the Same Time?

The aging process is brutal on your body. It creates aches and pains where you never had them before, sagging skin, and wrinkles and fine lines that threaten your confidence. Although it seems hopeless, cosmetic treatments can significantly reduce your skin's signs of aging.

Botox® is a neurotoxin that many practices utilize for wrinkle reduction and other signs of aging. Fillers create a fuller appearance to your face where you've lost volume due to aging. The question is, can you get them together for the best possible outcome?

The answer is yes, and at Breast, Body, Beauty Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery in Atlanta, Georgia, our team is here to provide you with these treatments. Dr. Aisha Baron is our plastic and reconstructive surgery specialist, providing nonsurgical treatments like Botox and fillers for a youthful appearance you’ll be proud to show off.

Botox for anti-aging

Botox is a widely utilized neurotoxin that comes from the same bacteria that causes botulism, a severe type of food poisoning. However, the medical world has reduced the dosage to a safe level to provide long-lasting relief from wrinkles and fine lines.

Wrinkles and fine lines form over time from constantly contracting and relaxing your facial muscles. These wrinkles often make you look older and increase in number with age.

Botox works by blocking the nerve signals to the muscles that cause your wrinkles. The temporary paralysis of these muscles prevents them from contracting, resulting in a smoother complexion and appearance.

Dr. Baron uses Botox to treat fine lines and wrinkles that form on your face. She injects several areas in one session, depending on your concerns. The main areas where we utilize Botox injections include your:

Dr. Barron carefully evaluates your needs and goals to determine the correct dose of Botox for months of wrinkle-free skin.

How do fillers work?

As you age, your face loses fat and volume, increasing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. While Botox reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, it can't restore your facial volume.

Dermal fillers are the answer to lost facial volume and fullness. They’re gel-like substances that go under your skin to provide volume and fullness to areas lacking subcutaneous fat.

Hyaluronic acid is one of the many types of fillers, but there are others as well. Dr. Baron uses Juvéderm® XC, Restylane® SILK, and Voluma® XC at our practice. Each of these fillers gives you a youthful appearance without the need for a facelift.

Dr. Baron uses fillers for various cosmetic reasons, some of which include:

Dermal fillers enhance your appearance and smooth or plump your skin. The results last about 6 months, with some patients getting up to 18 months out of one injection.

Can I have both treatments together?

The excellent news is that you can have Botox and fillers together at one appointment. They complement each other nicely, providing a wrinkle-free appearance that knocks years off your face.

We offer the two treatments together because they work in different ways. Botox reduces wrinkles and fine lines. Conversely, fillers replenish volume in your face and lips.

The two treatments create a liquid facelift, offering similar results to a surgical facelift without the need to go under the knife. A liquid facelift isn't quite as dramatic but still provides you with volume, smoother skin, and a tighter appearance to help you embrace your look.

There are many benefits to having Botox and fillers done at the same time. The biggest is the time savings, allowing you to improve your appearance with one simple appointment.

It's also a fantastic option for multiple cosmetic complaints about your skin and face. Both treatments work together to help you achieve the smooth, lifted look you dream of. They also help you avoid surgery if that's not something you're interested in.
