Can You Combine Dermal Fillers and BOTOX?

March 14, 2024
Can You Combine Dermal Fillers and BOTOX?

Dermal fillers and BOTOX are some of the most common cosmetic treatments. Both are designed to reverse the signs of aging to provide a more youthful, healthier appearance. There is no question that these treatments provide significant benefits. The question is: can BOTOX and dermal fillers be combined for even more effective results? Here’s what you need to know. 

What Are Dermal Fillers? 

Dermal fillers are injectable treatments in which the active ingredient is hyaluronic acid. The purpose of dermal fillers is to add volume to the facial tissues, which essentially plumps the skin so that wrinkles are minimized. Dermal fillers also encourage natural production of collagen, a naturally occurring substance in the body that creates elasticity of the skin. Treatments can be applied to the skin of the lips, eyes, cheeks, and forehead. 

What is BOTOX? 

BOTOX is a neuromodulator in which the active ingredient is botulinum toxin. A neuromodulator is a chemical that interrupts the signals between the neurons and the tissues. This forces the muscles to relax in the treatment area, which smooths wrinkles in specific areas of the face. BOTOX is most often applied to the forehead and around the eyes, but it can also be used around the mouth and nose. 

Combining Dermal Fillers and BOTOX for Best Results 

Many people find that they get the best results when combining dermal fillers and BOTOX treatments. However, they should not be applied at the same time. It is usually best to start with BOTOX and then fine tune your results with dermal fillers to further reduce remaining wrinkles. BOTOX can take up to a week before you notice any changes, which means you may not need additional dermal fillers at all. After BOTOX has fully taken effect, if you’re still not satisfied, then dermal fillers can be applied in the necessary places to pick up the slack. 

What is a Liquid Facelift? 

The term “liquid facelift” is often used to describe the combination of BOTOX and dermal fillers. This is because it can give you such dramatic results that it is almost like getting a facelift, but without any surgery. 


Benefits of Combining BOTOX and Dermal Fillers

There are many benefits of this winning combination of facial aesthetic treatments

  • Versatility. BOTOX and dermal fillers work in different ways, which means that the combination offers the versatility to address a wide variety of cosmetic imperfections. 
  • Double the benefits. By combining these treatments you get the benefits of both treatments at once. 
  • Youthful appearance. Both treatments alone can give you a more youthful appearance, but when applied together or alternatingly, the anti-aging effects are even more dramatic. 
  • Natural look. Dermal fillers and BOTOX, even when used together, still provide natural results without looking overdone. 
  • Increased confidence. You’ll feel even more confident when you see the results of this treatment combination. 
  • Surgical results without surgery.  Combining BOTOX and dermal fillers can provide results that rival those that come from cosmetic surgery. 
  • Longer lasting results. The results of these treatments together last longer than either would last alone. 

Frequently Asked Questions About BOTOX and Dermal Fillers

Can I get BOTOX and dermal fillers on the same day?

You could, but it is not recommended. It is best to have BOTOX treatment first, then wait a couple of weeks to see the results before getting additional treatment in the form of dermal fillers. This helps to fine tune your results for the best possible outcome. 

Why are facial treatments offered by my dentist?

Many dental practices are offering facial aesthetics because we believe that there is more to a beautiful smile than just the appearance of your teeth. Facial treatments like BOTOX and dermal fillers can help your smile look more youthful across your facial features.
