Many of us look into the mirror sometimes and wish we could reclaim our skin’s youthful glow. Thanks to straightforward, non-surgical treatment options, obtaining a smoother, tighter, wrinkle-free face is easier than ever.
Procedures using injectable substances, such as Botox® and cosmetic fillers, laser resurfacing, and chemical peels all help you turn back time and recapture your younger appearance. If you’re looking to undergo a full rejuvenation, you might be wondering if you can combine these procedures.
In most cases, it’s possible to combine injectable, laser, and peel treatments as part of your transformation. Raymund J. Llaurado, MD, a board-certified facial plastic surgeon located in Arroyo Grande and Santa Maria, California, explains the advantages of combining multiple non-surgical facial treatments.
Advantages of combining rejuvenation procedures
Under the supervision of Dr. Llaurado, it’s usually safe and effective to combine non-surgical procedures like BOTOX, cosmetic fillers, laser resurfacing, and chemical peels. If you’re looking for complete facial and skin rejuvenation, you can expect to reap the following benefits from combining more than one procedure.
Get multiple skin benefits
Each different kind of treatment helps with different kinds of facial and skin rejuvenation. By undergoing an individualized combination of injectable, laser, and peel treatments at the same time, you’ll enhance your appearance by reaping each one’s unique benefits together.
BOTOX is an injectable treatment that works by reducing the appearance of wrinkles and other fine lines. It’s especially effective on crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, and brow lines.
Another injectable procedure, cosmetic fillers, also help decrease your winkles, while creating a plumper, fuller appearance to your face. Cosmetic fillers can give your lips and the sides of your face more volume while having a softening effect on facial creases.
Laser resurfacing gives your skin a more even and smoother appearance. It also reduces age spots, scarring, wrinkles, and sun damage.
Chemical peels exfoliate your skin, revealing the fresher, more youthful-looking skin underneath. This procedure firms the skin, helping reduce the appearance of sagging, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and scars.
Done together, multiple treatments work in tandem to further boost the benefits you get. For example, getting BOTOX and a chemical peel together gives your skin a youthful freshness and tightness, while also keeping wrinkles and fine lines away for months.
By having a combination of procedures together, you’ll enjoy the benefits of each procedure at the same time. You won’t need to wait to do another treatment and can enjoy a revitalized appearance right away.
Reduce the number of office visits and recovery time
It’s possible to get some non-surgical treatments in the same visit. Typically, you’ll need to make fewer visits to Dr. Llaurado’s office than you would by getting the procedures at separate times. You’ll also have a shorter recovery period, as you can recover from multiple treatments together.
