With so many cosmetic treatments to choose from, it can be confusing to decide which treatment is best for you. Injectables, like Botox and dermal fillers, address different cosmetic problems, and they’re often combined to treat multiple issues like fine lines and wrinkles and volume loss.
At Vital Clinic and Spa, Dr. Harmanpreet Buttar and our team offer Botox and fillers at our clinic in Cypress, Texas.
When to combine Botox and fillers
Everyone ages at a different pace. Some people begin to notice fine lines and wrinkles, crow’s feet, and frown lines in their mid to late 20s, while others maintain a youthful appearance and firm skin into their 30s and 40s. There’s no such thing as a “one size fits all” approach to skin care, and people choose to invest in cosmetic treatments for many reasons.
The first step in finding the best cosmetic treatment is to schedule a consultation. Botox and fillers are minimally invasive and widely available, but they should always be administered by a licensed and experienced medical professional. At your consultation, Dr. Buttar and our team will recommend the best treatments for you based on your skin type, age, lifestyle, and goals.
Botox and fillers fix different issues, so they complement each other as cosmetic treatments. Both are minimally invasive and can be administered in the same appointment, and neither requires downtime like more invasive treatments, so you can return to your normal activities immediately.
Botox targets fine lines and wrinkles to give your skin a smoother appearance. Dermal fillers help with sagging and lax skin, so they’re ideal options to plump the cheeks and lips.
The effects of fillers are typically visible right away, while Botox results may take a little longer.
Many people start with Botox at the first signs of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and forehead. Collagen production gradually begins to decrease with age, which makes the skin sag and lose volume over time. Fillers replace volume, so when used together, Botox and fillers smooth wrinkles and give your skin a fuller and more youthful look.
Are fillers and Botox right for you?
Dermal fillers and Botox are a great choice if you’re looking for a minimally invasive and nonsurgical cosmetic treatment. Injectables make subtle improvements to your skin without making drastic changes to your face or skin tone.
Some people take a proactive approach and start using Botox and fillers as a preventive treatment at the first sign of fine lines, wrinkles, and volume loss in the cheeks and around the mouth. There’s no perfect age to get started.
