Should I Have Botox® or Fillers or Both?

Should I Have Botox® or Fillers or Both?

These days, the possibilities can seem endless when it comes to restoring or enhancing your appearance. However, that can make it even more tricky to figure out which treatment is right for you.

At Renaissance Plastic Surgery in Plano, Texas, PLLC, Jeff Angobaldo, MD makes it easy to get the results you’ve been dreaming of, whether you want to turn back the hands of time or lose weight and improve your overall health.

In this post, Dr. Angobaldo explores when to choose Botox®, when fillers could be best, and how combining Botox and fillers can solve multiple issues at one time.

When Botox is best

There is a reason people love Botox — this FDA-approved treatment has been erasing frown lines and wrinkles since 2002. 

When you have Botox treatments, Dr. Angobaldo injects tiny amounts of purified botulinum serum into specific muscles causing fine lines and wrinkles to appear. This temporarily paralyzes the muscles, causing the skin around them to relax and smooth out. The result? Bye-bye, wrinkles.

Dr. Angobaldo usually recommends Botox for specific aesthetic changes on the upper half of your face, such as:

And, while Botox treatments require injections, the needle is so small it’s virtually painless. You can also expect to see noticeable results within 24-48 hours, and they last up to 4 months, even for moderate to severe frown lines.

When to turn to fillers

Dermal fillers can also help with wrinkles. However, they work in a very different way than Botox.

Unlike Botox, dermal fillers add volume to your face. That means that during your treatment, Dr. Angobaldo injects special gels and serums into specific areas of your face to restore lost volume and plumpness.

Since dermal fillers use plumping agents, Dr. Angobaldo relies on them for imperfections on the bottom half of your face, such as:

Fillers give you results immediately, and some can last up to two years.

When to combine Botox and fillers

While you can get results with these treatments separately, combining them can completely transform your appearance.

Using Botox and dermal fillers at the same time addresses imperfections on your entire face, earning it the nickname “liquid facelift.” And rightly so because you can get similar results as a surgical facelift, but in less than an hour with no surgery or downtime.

If you want to refresh your look or say goodbye to imperfections, Dr. Angobaldo can recommend the best strategy to help.
