Can I combine Botox and Fillers?
Combining Botox and fillers opens up new dimensions in facial rejuvenation by combining complementary properties. But is this combination also safe?
Botox – The relaxer of facial expressions
Botox, also known as botulinum toxin, blocks the nerve signals responsible for contracting specific facial muscles. This targeted relaxation can reduce deep wrinkles and expression lines that have developed over the years. Typical application areas are the forehead, the eye area (crow’s feet) and the area between the eyebrows. The effects of Botox usually appear after a few days and last for several months.
Fillers – The volumizers
On the other hand, dermal fillers offer an immediate solution to volume loss and static wrinkles that exist regardless of facial movements. They are made from biocompatible materials such as hyaluronic acid, injected under the skin to fill wrinkles and shape contours. In addition to smoothing wrinkles, fillers can enlarge the lips and define facial structure, such as the jawline. The effects of the fillers can be seen immediately after treatment and can last between 6 and 18 months, depending on the product used.
Combination – The best of both worlds
The combination of both methods can achieve comprehensive facial rejuvenation. For example, Botox can smooth forehead wrinkles, while fillers emphasize the cheek area and thus restore the face to its youthful shape. Using them simultaneously can also achieve a lifting effect without surgical intervention.
The combination of Botox and fillers, when performed by experienced professionals, can produce outstanding results. While Botox takes care of fine lines, fillers give the face new volume and vitality. It is essential that each treatment plan is individually tailored and that these treatments are carried out by an experienced specialist who clearly understands the anatomy of the face and how the substances interact.
