The Connection Between Botox and Dermal Fillers

We know that true beauty is on the inside–but, still, we all like to show a little bit of true beauty on the outside, too. It’s not a matter of vanity. Looking your best can improve your self-esteem, your mood, and your outlook on life, not to mention all of the doors that can be opened by a well-groomed and attractive appearance when it comes to job hunting, meeting new people, and more. In today’s world, we have countless ways to achieve and enhance our beauty. Exercise is one example of this. Eating healthy, using good hair-care products, and choosing form-flattering clothing are also good ways of caring for your outward appearance. However, there is one beauty technique that more and more people are turning to as its reliability and safety skyrocket–and that technique is dermal filling with help from Botox.

Plastic Surgery

Plastic surgery in the form of dermal fillers is becoming very popular, and it’s all thanks to modern technology. In the past, plastic surgery meant a very permanent and very risky decision–if there were complications or the patient was displeased with the result, the only option for removal was more surgery. Luckily, that’s not the case today. Today, science and modern technology are working together to make plastic surgery safer and more reliable than ever. Dermal fillers, one of the most popular cosmetic surgery options, are made of hyaluronic acid–which is already present in the body–and thus are safer, easier to remove, and more efficient to control than ever before. However, dermal fillers are not permanent, and it has been a constant goal to add longevity to the benefits of dermal fillers. That’s where Botox comes in.

Working Together

So, how do Botox and dermal fillers work together? Let the experts at our opens in a new windowPlastic Surgery explain!

  • Science. The relationship between Botox and dermal fillers is based on science. The fillers break down faster when the muscles and skin nearby are in motion–so using Botox to “freeze” the area and suspend motion naturally means that the dermal fillers have a better chance of lasting a long time.
  • Studies. Botox and dermal fillers were tested together by Dr. Ismail Kucuker. The test involved injecting dermal fillers into the skin in front of a rabbit’s ear, and dermal fillers and Botox being injected into the skin in front of the other ear. The results showed that the latter kept a fuller and stronger appearance for a longer time, while the former did not last long at all. (More information on the study can be found
  • Expertise. One of the biggest benefits of the Botox/dermal filler relationship is that it allows experts to adhere more closely to the needs of the individual. Dermal fillers with Botox can be removed, changed, or fixed based on the needs of the patient. It all comes down to working side-by-side with an expert who knows what you need–not what everyone needs.
