Can I Get Botox® and Fillers at the Same Time?

Can I Get Botox® and Fillers at the Same Time?

In the age of cosmetic injectables, defying aging is getting easier and easier. With injections like Botox®, you can keep dynamic wrinkles at bay. And with dermal fillers, you get a way to replace the volume your face loses through the years. Together, these quick, convenient treatments can help you look your best at any age. 

And we offer both at our offices, located on Manhattan’s Upper East Side in New York City and in Madison, Connecticut. As experts in both neuromodulators like Botox and fillers, Norman J. Pastorek, MD, Janice Pastorek, BSN, RN, and our team can help you decide which cosmetic injectables are right for you. 

Then, we tailor a treatment plan. And we can provide all of it — Botox and fillers together — in one appointment. 

Why you might want both

First, you might be wondering why someone would choose to get two different types of cosmetic injectables rather than sticking with a single treatment option. 

That’s because dermal fillers like Juvéderm® and Restylane® work differently than neuromodulators like Botox and Dysport®. 

Dermal fillers replenish volume where you’ve lost it (or where you never had it to begin with). That means they can:

Botox and other neuromodulators work by temporarily freezing the muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles. That means they effectively treat:

In other words, Botox and its counterparts treat aging in the upper half of your face, while fillers address the volume-related signs of aging that develop in the lower half of your face. 

Getting fillers and Botox® in one convenient appointment

Experts — including ours — have safely treated aging with Botox and fillers used in tandem for years now. Once we decide on a treatment plan based on your cosmetic goals, we can perform all of your injections in just a few minutes. There’s no added risk in getting both types of cosmetic injectables at the same time. 

As an added bonus, the brief recovery process is the same for both fillers and Botox. Don’t rub the area or put any pressure on it for a few days. Try to keep the area out of the sun and wait until the next day to do any strenuous activity.

Because you can get fillers and neuromodulators at the same time, you can transform your face with just one appointment. To explore what these treatments can do for you, set up a consultation with our team. Call either of our offices or book your appointment online today.
