While I offer many options for facial rejuvenation at my dermatology practice, one procedure that I have found especially effective in restoring a refreshed appearance is BOTOX® Cosmetic. Houston area residents often choose this procedure to reduce the appearance of facial lines and creases, especially those along the forehead and around the eyes. But what many of my patients don’t know is that BOTOX can serve as a complementary treatment to enhance other cosmetic procedures such as dermal fillers, Ultherapy and even facelifts.
BOTOX with Injectables
While BOTOX and dermal fillers are both injectable treatments that are commonly used to reduce wrinkles, they function very differently. BOTOX relaxes facial muscles, thereby softening the appearance of lines and creases. Dermal fillers, on the other hand, “plump up” wrinkles by adding volume to the skin and can also be used to enhance the lips and cheeks. When used together, however, these treatments can create a temporary “lifting” effect that provides a tighter, more youthful appearance.
Looking Your Best
Aging is not a one-way street – there are many concerns to address and various levels of improvement that can be achieved. For comprehensive results, a combination of treatments may be necessary. Using a variety of approaches allows me to strategically target specific areas of concern and create a more naturally refreshed appearance.
