When injected beneath the skin, fillers can plump up creased and sunken areas of the face. They can also add fullness to the lips and cheeks. Injectable fillers may be used alone or in conjunction with a resurfacing procedure, such as alaser treatment, or a recontouring procedure, such as a facelift.
Can you combine injectables?
Combining Botox with Restylane is very popular in the frown-line area between the eyes. Data tends to support its use when the lines are well established over a long period of time and the skin remains indented, even when the muscles aren’t moving. These lines are called static wrinkles and are ideal for fillers such as Restylane. This combination in the right patient can last up to seven months, as opposed to three or four for Botox alone. If, as is usually the case in younger patients, frown lines appear only when the muscles are active (dynamic wrinkles), then Botox alone is sufficient.
Course of treatment and pricing should be determined by you and your plastic surgeon or dermatologist. Here are some injectable options to discuss with your doctor:
|Injectable Option||Helps To||Results|
|Stimulates new collagen growth; fills out sunken areas of the face||up to two years|
|Add volume to forehead wrinkles, smile lines, and lips||four months to one year|
|Temporarily relaxes the muscle including forehead, frown lines,
crow’s feet, and vertical neck lines
|up to six months|
|Adds volume to Nasolabial folds,
frown lines, crow’s feet, and lips
|up to one year|
|Adds fat to Nasolabial folds,
crow’s feet, lips, frown lines, and
|highly variable, months to years|
|Adds volume to the Nasolabial folds||up to one year|
|FIlls out sunken areas of the face and hands||permanent with multiple treatments|
