Can we get both; Botox and Dermal Fillers?

Dermal FillersThough this question appears a valid one on the face of it, at least literally, there might not be a very straight forward answer to it. For one, Botox and Dermal Fillers do not provide identical relief to the ageing facial skin. Botox is the conventional remedy for toning up the skin by providing relaxation to the areas of the face, particularly the upper portions of the face such as the forehead and the crow’s feet. The commonly available dermal fillers, on the other hand, play a more positive role in filling, as the nomenclature itself suggests, of the ageing facial wrinkles. Again on a broader level Botox deals more with the facial muscles that move a lot. And dermal filler takes care of the static ones.

So once this differentiation is understood, one can come with a response to the above question and say yes. One can get both Botox and Dermal Fillers together. But it must be quickly added that the experts would recommend that the treatment be carried out one after the other, rather than simultaneously. This is done like this: if the wrinkles are a bit deep inject Botox first and allow for a two-week gap before applying the fillers to build volumes. It might also be relevant for you to know that the full effect of Botox remains for only around four months, whereas good dermal fillers can be good for one whole year. It is also relevant to understand that dermal fillers come in many base varieties, and each could work fine with specific skin places. So arm yourselves with the full information before using them.
