Anti-Wrinkle Injections and Dermal Fillers used together; an Effective Combination

With many patients, Cosmetic Doctor can use a combination of muscle relaxing injections and dermal filler (i.e. Juvederm or Restylane) to great effect. It helps to understand how they work in combination to give you a very natural looking, youthful but subtle result.

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal Fillers contain a protein already present in the body. Injectable hyaluronic acid is used to replace, or ‘fill in’ the volume you lose as you age; and the folds that appear and deepen over time.

It lasts for six months to a year, and is then reabsorbed by the body.

What are Anti-Wrinkle Injections?

Anti-Wrinkle Injections contain a purified protein derived from the bacterium, Clostridium Botulinum. It works by relaxing targeted muscles, thereby eliminating the wrinkles that correspond to those muscle groups.

It’s been uses successfully for many years, globally, to treat lines and dynamic wrinkles. Injected into specific muscles, muscle relaxing injections (Anti-Wrinkle Injections) blocks impulses from the nearby nerve to that muscle, allowing it to relax. The overlying skin then becomes smoother as it’s no longer contorted into a wrinkle.

Synergy of Products for Superb Results

When an anti-wrinkle injectable and dermal fillers like Restylane are used together by a skilled practitioner like Dr. Fay at Cosmetic Doctor, the patient can get an excellent result as a synergy of the two products.

Dynamic wrinkles caused by frowning of other facial expression can be relaxed; and deeper lines caused by static wrinkles (ones that remain after you’ve stopped making a facial expression) can be filled using the dermal filler. Restylane will also replace lost volume, reducing the appearance of aging.

In skilled hands, using the two products can be used artfully together, to smooth out what needs to be smoothed and fill the depressed areas, resulting in a natural, aesthetically pleasing look that makes you look like yourself; just without some of the lines and crevices that time has brought to your face.
