Botox and fillers are two of the most popular options out there in the world of cosmetic treatments. How can you choose? Well, you might not have to!

In fact, this is a question that we get all the time: “Can I get Botox and fillers?” The answer is not only yes, you can, but these treatments actually can complement each other. Combining Botox and dermal fillers can mean even better overall results that are long-lasting.

How Botox  Works

Botox is a neurotoxin that is used to relax specific facial muscles responsible for lines and wrinkles that accumulate over time due to age and the repeated contraction of – you guessed it- facial muscles. Botox works by blocking the nerve signals within these muscles. As a result, the skin becomes smoother, and those bothersome lines, such as crow’s feet and frown lines, are visibly diminished.

…And How Dermal Fillers Work

Dermal fillers are also an injectable treatment, but they work differently. Fillers are designed to remain beneath the skin, adding volume and plumping areas of the face that have lost volume due to aging. Dermal fillers can effectively treat deep wrinkles, nasolabial folds, and areas that have lost their youthful contours, such as the cheeks and lips.

Benefits: Botox vs. Fillers

Individually, both Botox and dermal fillers offer remarkable anti-aging benefits. Botox, as mentioned earlier, targets dynamic wrinkles caused by muscle contractions. These wrinkles tend to appear when we smile, frown, or make other facial expressions. By relaxing the muscles, Botox not only reduces the appearance of the wrinkles that are already there, but it also prevents new ones from forming.

Dermal fillers, on the other hand, are excellent for addressing deep, static wrinkles and age-related volume loss. As we age, our skin produces less collagen and loses its natural elasticity, leading to sagging and hollowed areas. Dermal fillers restore lost volume, plumping up the skin and providing a more youthful contour. They can also be used to enhance features like lips and cheeks, creating a balanced and harmonious facial appearance.

The Power of Combining Botox + Fillers

There are great individual benefits of both Botox and dermal fillers. However, combining these two treatments can yield results that are greater than the sum of their parts.

Complementary Effects

While Botox relaxes the muscles responsible for dynamic wrinkles, dermal fillers add volume and smooth out static creases and lines. By addressing both types of wrinkles simultaneously, you can achieve a more natural yet noticeable result.

Longer-Lasting Results

One of the significant advantages of combining Botox and dermal fillers is the longevity of the results. Botox tends to last for three to four months. Dermal fillers last anywhere from six months to two years. When used together, the results can last longer than when each treatment is administered separately.


By combining Botox and dermal fillers, your cosmetic specialist can tailor a treatment plan that addresses your specific concerns and desires. Whether you want to target crow’s feet or forehead lines or enhance your lips, the combination of these treatments allows for a completely personalized approach.

Immediate Results Plus Prevention

By inhibiting the contractions responsible for lines like crow’s feet and forehead furrows, Botox not only smooths existing wrinkles but also stops new ones from forming. Meanwhile, dermal fillers address the loss of volume and plumpness that occurs with age. By restoring youthful contours and filling in areas where sagging and hollowing occur, fillers immediately create a more youthful appearance. Together, Botox and dermal fillers tackle both the prevention of fine lines and the maintenance of a naturally youthful look.
