Why Botox and Fillers Work So Well Together

Dec 23, 2020 | Skin Care


Botox® and Juvéderm™ dermal fillers can help you can turn back the hands of time that may be beginning to show on your face. On their own, each can result in a natural, younger appearance. In fact, these rejuvenating injectables work so well together that they make a perfect one-two punch for fighting signs of aging on your face.

Each Have a Specific Job to Do

While Botox® and Juvéderm™ are both injectables, they each treat different types of wrinkles. Botox® works by relaxing dynamic wrinkles and stopping them from contracting. These are wrinkles that are caused by repetitive facial movements like frowning and squinting.

Juvéderm™ dermal filler smooths out static wrinkles. These are wrinkles that are visible when your face is at rest. The hyaluronic acid in Juvéderm™ restores the lost volume that caused these wrinkles to form. It also helps sculpt youth-looking contours and definition.

How Botox® and Juvéderm Complement Each Other

By combining both Botox® and Juvéderm™, you can address multiple areas of your face simultaneously. Juvéderm™ is typically used on the middle and lower areas of the face, while Botox® is used around the eyes and forehead.

Using both together also helps prolong the results of each treatment. By using Botox® to relax muscle movement, the hyaluronic acid in Juvéderm™ does not breakdown as fast as it would in areas of your face that move more often, including around your mouth.

Both treatments are non-invasive and well-tolerated by most patients. You will see results within a few days with very little downtime.
