If you do botox regularly or are considering doing so soon, there’s one more part to the process that you should consider for the best results: combining your treatment with hyaluronic filler (HA).
According to an experimental study released by Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, the combination of botox with HA significantly decreases the degradation process. Comparing areas that were only treated with botox versus a combination of botox and HA, the latter proved to be more effective.
In my own practice, I highly recommend this combination because I know it’s a great way to get the most out of your treatment. While it’s a more expensive option to add HA on top of botox, I’ve seen many patients walk away happier as the extra filler really ensures that the treatment lasts longer.
So if a botox treatment has been lingering at the back of your mind, book an appointment with your dermatologist to discuss how you can benefit from this combination, what it costs and hopefully assess what the best course of action is for you. Take it from someone who’s seen it - you can’t go wrong with this combination!
