Botox + Fillers | A Rejuvenation Duo
The Beauty of Botox
Botox is a paralyzing agent consisting of botulinum toxin A and is FDA approved to treat areas between the brows, around the eyes and lip areas. “Botox works by preventing the muscle contraction that leads to hide wrinkles you don’t want,” explains Dr. Azeen Sadeghian, board certified dermatologist at Sanova Dermatology in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Results from a Botox treatment can take up to 1-2 weeks to fully see.
Types of Wrinkles or Concerns Treated with Botox:
- Forehead lines (across forehead area)
- Frown lines (between brow area)
- Crows feet (around eye areas)
- Bunny lines (at the top of the bridge of nose area)
- Radial lip lines (above the top lip area)
- Marionette lines (outside corners of the mouth area)
- Chin dimples (along chin area)
- Boxy jawline (along the masseter jaw area)
Fundamentals of Fillers
Dermal Fillers treat the deeper wrinkles by filling in hollows, lines, and wrinkles. Two prevalent types of hyaluronic acid fillers are called Juvederm and Restylane which works very quickly, and patients see immediate results. “Fillers can also replace lost volume while adding contour and even definition to the face,” notes Dr. Sadeghian.
Combining for Colossal Results
By combining both Botox and fillers, you will drastically reduce fine lines and wrinkles, restores a more youthful or attractive facial contour as well as replenishing the volume lost with age. “As we age, both the skin and the underlying facial structures are affected which creates a gradual change in facial appearance,” Dr. Sadeghian says. Studies have shown to achieve optimal results; it is best to combine both Botox and fillers.
Whether you are opting for a light touch up with Botox or focusing on restoring volume with dermal fillers, combining both will help turn back time for a more refreshed, natural and overall rejuvenated appearance.
