If you’re looking to address age-related changes in your skin but aren’t interested in surgery, your solution may include a combination of Botox® and dermal fillers.
At Bergen Aesthetics, our skilled aesthetic specialist Heripsime Ohanian, PhD, MD, FACOG, provides a range of services to address wrinkles, fine lines, and volume loss. These issues become more noticeable as we age and may leave you feeling dissatisfied with your appearance.
If you’re not ready for invasive surgery but want to enhance your natural features, Dr. Ohanian can determine if you’re a candidate for treatment with Botox and fillers.
Differences between Botox and fillers
Botox is a prescription injectable that’s made from a purified form of botulinum toxin. In precise doses, this toxin temporarily paralyzes contracted muscles. As muscles relax, skin in the treatment areas begins to smooth out to give you a younger-looking appearance.
Dermal fillers are injectables often made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance already in your body that maintains moisture in your skin. Fillers replace lost volume in your face and hands to plump up and smooth out your skin.
The aesthetic partnership of Botox and fillers
Botox therapy and dermal fillers work together beautifully when you have more than one aesthetic concern.
Dr. Ohanian can use Botox to target the moderate to deep-set frown lines across your brow and the crinkled crow’s-feet around your eyes. She then uses popular fillers like Restylane® to replace lost volume around your cheeks, make your lips look fuller, and minimize creases around your nose and mouth.
By combining Botox with fillers, Dr. Ohanian can help you achieve a more youthful appearance that highlights the natural contours of your face. She follows a customized treatment plan to optimize your results and ensure they look natural and are long-lasting.
Benefits of combinations treatments
Using Botox and fillers as part of your treatment plan is a great way to freshen your face with immediate results and minimal recovery. These therapies also carry a low risk for complications.
Another benefit of this combination approach is that Dr. Ohanian can treat multiple aesthetic concerns in both your upper and mid face at the same time to save you time and money. After your treatment is complete, you can go back to your routine without downtime or limitations.
Since the results of Botox can last for two to three months, you only need to schedule maintenance injections a few times a year. Restylane provides even longer results, with many people enjoying their fresher appearance for 12-18 months before more treatment is needed, depending on the area you’re treating.
Botox and fillers are an effective and safe option for many people who want to enhance their features and enjoy a boost of self-confidence. Dr. Ohanian provides thorough skin evaluations and discusses your aesthetic goals to ensure you’re a candidate for this type of treatment.
