Benefits of Having Botox and Fillers

Combining Botox with dermal fillers allows you to enjoy your look longer and reap maximum benefits. These two very different injectables complement each other to leave you with the ultimate in facial rejuvenation.

At Dallas Family Medical and Aesthetics in Addison, Texas, Dr. Julie Reihsen offers safe and effective aesthetic treatments to help you look as great as you feel. Here our experts discuss how Botox and dermal fillers can deliver the best results by working together to create a more youthful facial appearance.

Botox: The gold standard in banishing wrinkles and fine lines 

When it comes to wrinkles and fine lines, Botox is a mainstay. With its long history of safe and effective use, Botox relaxes wrinkles that crop up around the eyes, mouth, forehead and other areas of the face. 

As you age, collagen, a crucial protein that makes up your skin, declines. Collagen is responsible for giving your skin structure and keeping it soft and springy. As the hands of time continue turning, lower collagen levels lead to wrinkles, fine lines and a lackluster facial appearance. 

Botox is a purified form of botulinum toxin, a neurotoxin that, when injected, relaxes muscle activity. Dr. Reihsen carefully and strategically inject Botox into appropriate areas of your face to diminish the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. The result is a smoother, rejuvenated facial appearance. 

The low down on dermal fillers

Dermal fillers are an excellent complement to botox. While Botox reduces the appearance of wrinkles, dermal fillers add volume to areas affected by aging. As you age, the skin loses facial fat. This causes areas of the face that were once plump, round, and youthful-looking to sink and look dull, contributing to wrinkles and a lackluster looking appearance. 

Fillers can diminish deep wrinkles, plump your cheeks and lips, and lift your eyebrows, among other benefits. Dr. Reihsen will create an individualized treatment plan to address your specific aesthetic concerns and help you achieve the best results. 

Different fillers can be used, depending on your preferences and goals. These include: 

Non-surgical face-lift  

The non-surgical facelift is among the most requested aesthetic treatments to reverse the signs of aging. Dr. Reihsen can combine Botox and various dermal fillers to give you a facelift-like effect without the need to go under the knife. This is an excellent option for patients who aren’t ready for a surgical facelift. 

Restoring your youthful facial appearance is within reach. To get started, call our office to schedule your initial consultation with Dr. Reihsen or request an appointment online today.
