Combining Cosmetic Injectables to Dial Back the Years

Time is a constant component in your life that never stops. As the hours, days, and years fly by, your age continues to go up.  

Many good attributes come from getting older, like wisdom and experience. But with age comes some unwanted physical changes like wrinkles, sagging skin, and lost facial volume. Luckily, cosmetic injectables can help you get smooth, younger-looking skin without the drawbacks of surgery.

Cosmetic injectables are the most popular minimally invasive procedures, with 10 million treatments performed in 2018. The term “cosmetic injectables” generally refers to two procedures: BOTOX and dermal fillers. While the two treatments may seem similar at first, they work in very different ways to provide age-defying results. 

When moderate-to-severe signs of aging exist, Ronald Bush, MD, may suggest combining BOTOXⓇ Cosmetic and dermal fillers for the most dramatic results. Here at RB Laser Lipo & Aesthetics in Palm Desert, California, we provide BOTOX and dermal fillers so you can dial back the years.

BOTOX: Diminish dynamic wrinkles 

Expressions make us uniquely human, as smiling and frowning help convey your emotions to others. Dynamic wrinkles describe lines that appear when you smile, frown, cry, or laugh. 

Botulinum toxin, also known as BOTOX, is a protein that occurs in many organic settings and can be found in soil and fish. Botulinum toxin is toxic in large doses, but when used in tiny amounts, it’s deemed incredibly safe. 

BOTOX works by temporarily paralyzing facial muscles to soften their appearance.

Dr. Bush is an expert injector who uses BOTOX to smooth away dynamic wrinkles by treating:

The results of Botox take 1-2 days to appear and can last anywhere from 3-6 months, with about 4 months being typical. 

Dermal fillers: Restore lost facial volume

Have certain parts of your face thinned out? As you get older, you lose collagen and subdermal fat in your face, which tends to age your appearance. You may have noticed sunken areas around your temples and cheeks, and under your eyes. 

Static wrinkles describe creases that are apparent when your face is at rest. Dermal fillers are a minimally invasive way to restore facial volume by filling in these creases. Extremely versatile, dermal fillers can also be used to plump your lips and contour your face.

Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that already exists in your skin. Made from a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid, dermal fillers are a soft, gel-like substance that we inject beneath your skin. Because your body already contains hyaluronic acid, you shouldn’t experience any strange reactions to the treatment.

In addition to smoothing static wrinkles, dermal fillers can help:

The results of dermal fillers are immediate and last anywhere from 6 months to a year.

Combining the two for the best results

If you’re like most people, you probably have multiple skin concerns you’d like to address. Combining BOTOX and dermal fillers can improve a variety of age-related skin concerns for the most youthful results. While BOTOX can relax dynamic wrinkles, fillers can restore those deep creases to give you a more youthful-looking face.

One of the best reasons to use BOTOX and dermal fillers together is that the dual treatment extends the longevity of your results. BOTOX temporarily paralyzes facial muscles, and less movement can prevent the dermal filler from breaking down as fast. Using both cosmetic injectables together enhances their results, so you save money by needing fewer treatments in the long run.
