Combining Cosmetic Injectables for a Powerful Anti-Aging Punch

You probably already know that certain cosmetic injectables can give you specific anti-aging results. But you might have wondered which one is right for you. Should you choose Botox® and target the wrinkles on your forehead, or should you choose a dermal filler to address volume loss in the lower portion of your face?

It doesn’t have to be one or the other. At our office in Henderson, Nevada, the team of providers at Nevada Family Care & Wellness Center can combine Botox and fillers to help you reach your cosmetic goals. By blending them, we can address the various signs of aging, helping you turn back the clock for your face in its entirety. 

Why no single cosmetic injectable can address all the signs of aging

We’d love to offer you a single product that can deliver complete anti-aging results. But aging actually affects your face in two distinct ways. To give you the best results, we address those signs of aging separately.

The two ways time impacts your face are:

Dynamic wrinkles

These are the wrinkles that form where you repeat facial expressions. You might get crow’s feet around your eyes from smiling or wrinkles between your eyebrows from furrowing your brows, for example. 

Botox and the other cosmetic injectables that work like it — Dysport® and Xeomin® — treat dynamic wrinkles. They do this by temporarily freezing the muscle causing your wrinkle, allowing the skin above it to relax. 

Volume loss

Over the years, your body slows its production of a protein called collagen. Collagen keeps your skin firm and plump. With less collagen to support their skin, most people experience volume loss in the lower half of their faces through the years. 

Fortunately, with dermal fillers, we can replenish that volume loss. These fillers allow us to fill thinning lips and smooth folds that develop as you lose volume, like nasolabial folds and vertical lip lines. We can also use them to fill hollow cheeks and minimize the appearance of sagging jowls.

Using cosmetic injectables together

In short, Botox and fillers have separate uses. While Botox addresses dynamic wrinkles on the upper portion of your face, dermal fillers address volume loss on the lower portion. By using them together, we can address all of the ways time has taken its toll. Combining cosmetic injectables gives us a surgery-free way to deliver a powerful anti-aging punch. 

The anti-aging results you’ve dreamed of could be just a few injections away.
