Even if good genes, consistent sun protection habits, and a meticulous daily skin care regimen help you maintain a youthful complexion well into your forties, no one can escape the fine lines, deep wrinkles, skin sag, and soft tissue volume loss that eventually affects everyone.
Aging skin may be inevitable, but that doesn’t mean you have to embrace it.
As skilled aesthetics experts offering a full scope of cosmetic injectables at Vida Dental Spa in Whitestone, New York, our team knows exactly how to help you turn back the hands of time. Dr. Maria-Teresa Ioannou explains how combining Botox® and dermal fillers into a “liquid facelift” can help you achieve total facial rejuvenation in no time.
With the help of Botox and other neuromodulators, hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, soft tissue fillers, and lip fillers, more Americans are choosing to turn back the clock with beautiful, enduring results.
In 2022, more than 15 million men and women in the United States opted to erase fine lines, smooth deep wrinkles, and restore lost facial volume with cosmetic injectables. That marks a 70% increase in the number of people who sought anti-aging injectables in 2019.
Refined from the natural bacterium Clostridium botulinum, Botox is a highly purified protein. As a therapeutic cosmetic agent, it works to erase fine lines and wrinkles by blocking the nerve signals that keep your expressive facial muscles contracted — and make your dynamic wrinkles look so prominent.
When we inject tiny amounts of this highly effective neuromodulator into specific points in your facial anatomy, it relaxes the underlying facial muscles. We can use it to minimize:
Essentially, as Botox blocks the nerve signals that keep expressive facial muscles in a perpetual state of contraction, the muscle contractions ease, the overlying lines and wrinkles disappear, and your skin looks naturally refreshed.
Where the wrinkle-reducing effects of Botox end, the volume-restoring benefits of dermal fillers begin. Made of hyaluronic acid, collagen, and other natural purified substances, fillers can:
In addition to providing an instant volume boost, dermal fillers are potent collagen inductors, which means they prompt your skin to increase its production of collagen and elastin, the two main building block proteins that form the foundation of resilient, healthy, and youthful skin.
We can use dermal fillers to correct age-related facial changes, including thinning lips and vertical lip lines, poor skin laxity, hollowed cheeks, and prominent “parentheses lines” around your mouth. Simply put, fillers are a safe, quick, and effective way to correct soft tissue volume loss and restore a more youthful appearance.
While there’s no doubt that Botox and dermal fillers work beautifully as stand-alone anti-aging treatments, they work better together. Why? Each enhances the results of the other in multiple ways. Getting Botox and fillers together can help you:
Referred to as a “liquid facelift” because it’s an ideal way to achieve total facial rejuvenation without surgery, combining a few micro-shots of Botox and a skillfully injected dermal filler makes it possible to take years off your appearance in no time at all. Even better, each helps prolong the results of the other.
The conclusion? In one quick and easy treatment, you can expect to attain naturally beautiful, enduring facial revitalization results that last longer than any outcomes you’d get from a single cosmetic injectable.
