Can I Get Botox and Fillers During the Same Session?

Can I Get Botox and Fillers During the Same Session?

If you’ve been trying to decide between Botox® Cosmetic and dermal fillers, we’ve got good news for you — you don’t have to. Instead, you can benefit from both these injectable cosmetic treatments in a single visit.

At Warrenton Dermatology & Skin Therapy Center in Warrenton, Virginia, Dr. Juan-Carlos Caballero and our team offer the latest skincare technology, products, and services, so you get the best strategy available to attain your aesthetic goals.

Have you been considering Botox, fillers, or both? Here’s what you should know.

When to choose Botox Cosmetic

It’s hard to beat the time-tested anti-wrinkle results you can get with a product that’s been around with FDA approval for over 20 years.

Unlike similar options, 95% of specialists choose Botox Cosmetic for themselves and loved ones. Plus, it’s the most-studied product of its kind. However, Botox Cosmetic has a specific purpose, which is to minimize the appearance of: 

That’s because Botox specifically targets the nerve signals that cause these lines by keeping your facial muscles in a perpetual state of contraction. When Botox interrupts those signals, your overlying facial muscles relax — and your wrinkles disappear. 

Botox injections often feel like a small pinch and require no downtime. The best part? You can expect to start seeing results within 24-48 hours, and they last up to four months.

When dermal fillers offer the best solution

If you’ve got wrinkles, you can still turn to fillers. However, they solve this common problem very differently. Unlike injectable neuromodulators like Botox, dermal fillers address cosmetic issues by restoring lost tissue volume or adding contours with hyaluronic gel products like the Juvéderm® family of fillers.

These products are composed primarily of hyaluronic gel, a skin-volumizing, firming, and smoothing substance that is much like the hyaluronic acid that occurs naturally in the body. This can take the place of lost volume from fat pads in the face that start declining with age, leading to a change of shape, skin laxity, and facial lines/wrinkles.

Since fillers solve problems with plumping, they offer the best results for imperfections on the lower half of the face, such as:

When you get fillers, you can see results immediately. And, with products like Juvéderm, they can last up to 12 months.

When to get Botox Cosmetic and fillers

If you have imperfections that could benefit from both these treatments, you don’t have to choose. In fact, combining multiple cosmetic injectables into a single treatment session is often referred to as a “liquid facelift.”

Getting Botox Cosmetic and dermal fillers at the same time usually takes less than an hour. There’s minimal — if any — downtime, and it doesn’t require any anesthesia. However, the injections do contain mild numbing agents to ensure you remain comfortable the entire time.

You also see results immediately, and they can last up to a year or longer. Our team offers personalized recommendations on maintaining your result, so you can continue looking rejuvenated and refreshed indefinitely.
