Cosmetic injectables have changed the game in aging. With treatment you can get in just minutes, you can erase wrinkles and restore the youthful contours in your face.
We’re not just talking about Botox here, either — although that’s a key part of the treatment program. By combining it with fillers, Dr. Norman J. Pastorek, and Janice Pastorek, BSN, RN, can tailor a treatment plan that helps you move closer to your cosmetic goals — and helps you stay there longer.
When you visit one of our offices on Manhattan’s Upper East Side in New York City or in Madison, Connecticut, we talk with you about the results you want to achieve. Then, we customize a cosmetic injectables plan for you.
In some cases, we recommend combining fillers with Botox to enhance your results. Here’s why:
Neuromodulators and fillers work differently.
Botox freezes and smooths wrinkles, which means it works best for the dynamic wrinkles that occur where your face is most expressive. It’s extremely effective for eliminating wrinkles like the frown lines between your eyebrows or the horizontal lines that develop on your forehead.
Fillers, on the other hand, add volume where your face needs it. You might get deeper creases around your mouth over the years because of volume loss, for example.
By combining Botox and fillers, we can address both dynamic wrinkles and volume loss at the same time in a single appointment, helping to turn back all of the signs of aging.
The effects from Botox and fillers fade over time. At that point, your body either absorbs them and flushes them out. We can always reapply them to maintain your results, but combining them can help them last longer, giving you more time between appointments.
Fillers, for example, get broken down as you make facial expressions. By applying Botox, which freezes the area, before we apply fillers, we can help fillers last longer.
The trick here is to find a team with extensive experience in Botox and fillers. You want just enough Botox to preserve your results, but not so much that your expression looks frozen or fake. We can help you find the right balance to help you achieve your ideal cosmetic outcome and minimize the signs of aging through the years.
