Can I Get Botox® and Fillers at the Same Time?
As the most in-demand anti-aging treatments available, Botox® and dermal fillers are a safe and effective way to take years off your appearance. Learn how a “liquid facelift” combines the two for complete, long-lasting facial rejuvenation.

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.  

Anti-aging injectables are in demand

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. 

Botox erases lines and deep wrinkles

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: 

  • Angry 11s, or the severe vertical furrows that run between your brows
  • Worry lines, or the deep horizontal creases that mark your forehead
  • Crow’s feet, or the fine lines that extend from the corners of your eyes

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.

Dermal fillers restore lost facial volume

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:

  • Reverse “facial deflation” and restore lost soft tissue volume 
  • Subtly lift and tighten your skin, enhancing your natural features
  • Correct deep nasolabial wrinkles around your nose and mouth

 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. 

A liquid facelift offers total rejuvenation 

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:

  • Erase fine lines for far longer
  • Smooth deep wrinkles more fully
  • Make loose, saggy skin tighter
  • Restore lost soft tissue volume
  • Boost collagen and elastin levels

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.
