How Botox and dermal fillers are used together

South Denver-Englewood and Lone Tree

The aging process

We live in wonderfully advanced times, where technology puts the world at our fingertips, and modern medicine is keeping us vibrant and healthy well into the Golden Years. No longer does the passing of years mean that you need to slow down, stop working, or stop playing. However, the hands of time keep moving and they leave a visible age related changes to your skin and facial structure, which Botox and dermal fillers can help reverse.

If you looked in the mirror one day and realized that the face you see does not match the youth you feel, you are not alone. Even in the healthiest person, some changes in the skin over time are inevitable. In fact, sun protection and diligent skin care are often sacrificed due to a busy schedule. Sun damage, hereditary factors, and other external factors like tobacco all can contribute to premature aging.

Some people as young as their twenties begin seeing noticeable effects, which gradually progress. Skin loses volume and elasticity, fat pads sag and shrink, and muscles of facial expression become more prominent. Over time the firm, plump, youthful skin gracing soft contours changes to thin, sagging skin draped over a hollow or bony looking structure. Thankfully, modern science and medicine has given us a number of excellent tools in the war against aging.

The liquid facelift

Traditional facelifts have long been used to eliminate wrinkles by removing excess skin. The procedure has unique benefits and remains popular today. However, it is a surgical procedure, which creates irreversible changes and requires considerable healing time and surgical risk. Injectable treatments, often referred to as liquid facelifts, offer an alternative to surgery that can provide instant results, little to no downtime, and non-permanent changes. In most cases, neuromodulators are used in conjunction with fillers to accomplish this.

  • Botox Cosmetic was the first neuromodulator on the market for aesthetic treatment. It prevents excessive muscle contractions, which are typically responsible for frown lines, forehead wrinkles, and lines around the eyes.
  • Dermal fillers work by replacing lost volume and restoring youthful facial contours. They are often used to correct issues such as thin lips, sunken cheeks, and wrinkles or folds around the mouth.
