Can I Get Botox® and Dermal Fillers at the Same Time?

Can I Get Botox® and Dermal Fillers at the Same Time?

About 5.5 million Americans get cosmetic injections every year. Between Botox® and dermal fillers, injectables are the most-requested minimally invasive cosmetic procedure in the country — and it’s easy to see why.

It takes just a few minutes to get cosmetic injections. There’s no downtime required, and they instantly tackle wrinkles, sagging skin, and other common signs of aging.

And the best part about cosmetic injections? You can combine Botox and dermal fillers to get anti-aging benefits without invasive surgery.

Walter D. Gracia, MD, PA, and our team specialize in liquid facelifts — procedures that involve getting Botox and dermal fillers simultaneously to deliver noticeably younger-looking skin. So if you’re curious about how to combine Botox and dermal fillers, you’ve come to the right place.

The benefits of Botox

Botox treats moderate to severe dynamic facial wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles form with repetitive facial expressions, like raising your eyebrows and squinting.

Each time you make an expression, your skin moves and creases. When you’re young, your skin smooths out when your face is at rest. But eventually, those creases don’t disappear so easily, and they become wrinkles.

Dr. Gracia uses Botox for:

Botox injections contain a tiny amount of purified botulinum toxin, an ingredient that gently relaxes muscles. When you get Botox, it stops the muscles that make those dynamic wrinkles and smooths the lines away.

The benefits of dermal fillers

Dermal fillers address a different sign of aging than Botox. But it’s just as common: loss of volume.

As you get older, your skin gets drier and more delicate. You lose the layer of fat below the surface of your skin, and the result is often sagging, crepey skin around the lower half of your face.

Dr. Gracia uses dermal fillers for:

Fillers contain moisture-attracting ingredients, like hyaluronic acid gel. Dr. Gracia injects them in specific areas of your face to add volume and tighten your skin, reducing the look of lines and wrinkles.

Get the best of both worlds with a liquid facelift 

Botox smooths dynamic wrinkles across your forehead and around your eyes, while dermal fillers add volume to give your face more youthful contours. These cosmetic injectables produce distinctly different results — but you don’t have to choose between them. 

If you’re bothered by signs of facial aging, talk to Dr. Gracia about combining Botox and fillers in a liquid facelift. He can use a blend of injections to erase wrinkles, restore lost volume, and lift your skin without the need for invasive cosmetic surgery.

At your consultation, Dr. Gracia examines your face and discusses your aesthetic concerns with you. He develops a customized treatment plan based on your age, your skin, and your goals. 

You can get Botox injections and fillers at the same appointment. Fillers deliver instant results, and Botox results develop within 24-48 hours. Talk to Dr. Gracia to find out how long your results will last and when to schedule your touch-up appointments to maintain your new look.

It’s time to see what cosmetic injectables could do for you. Book a consultation with Dr. Gracia online or call our Fort Worth, Texas, office at 817-336-9450 to get started.
