The following question I get asked a lot by my clients: “If I get dermal fillers, will I still need Botox or other neurotoxins?”
The answer is a resounding yes. This is because there is still going to be muscle movement that creates contraction and lines and wrinkles of the skin.
Dermal fillers and collagen stimulators will build up collagen, making the skin look better and be more robust. The need for Botox does diminish, or the time between treatments can be lengthened; But it won’t totally take away the need for Botox.
Dermal fillers aim to add volume, improve texture and tone of skin. The dermis becomes thicker, and skin becomes stronger. Botox doesn’t do any of those things, however it stops muscle contraction, and eliminates the lines that comes with facial expression. So if you get dermal fillers or collagen stimulators, you will likely still need a component of a neuromodulator such as Botox.
