3 Treatments You Can Combine With Botox

3 Treatments You Can Combine With Botox

Botox® is a well-loved cosmetic product for a good reason. It effectively minimizes the appearance of wrinkles across the forehead, between the eyebrows, and the outer corners of the eyes. However, Botox can’t help with lost facial volume, age spots, acne scars, or deep laugh lines that bracket the corners of your mouth.

The skin care specialists at A to Z Dermatology, with five locations throughout Arizona, combine their significant medical expertise with advanced aesthetic services to revitalize and rejuvenate aging skin. From skin cancer to dermal fillers that keep your skin looking its youthful best, our team is committed to providing the exceptional care you deserve.

Read about three treatments we often recommend along with Botox injections and how your skin benefits.

1. Dermal fillers

Dermal fillers available at A to Z Dermatology contain naturally occurring substances. Once injected just under the skin, they fill in lines, wrinkles, and folds in the face. Fillers also effectively restore facial volume and contours that often decrease with age.

Your skin care specialist may recommend dermal fillers to eliminate smile lines, correct pitted scars, or plump lips. Although temporary, fillers can last for several months to a couple of years. When administered by a skilled provider, dermal fillers are an exceptional addition to Botox injections, offering natural-appearing results that successfully counter the effects of aging.

2. Chemical peels

Chemical peels improve the skin’s tone and texture by removing the top, oldest layer of skin cells, allowing underlying healthier skin to surface. The process also stimulates new collagen production, reducing wrinkles and leaving you with smoother and more youthful appearing skin.

Our team customizes the chemical peel to suit your skin care needs, alleviating surface irregularities such as:

Chemical peels offer stellar results for the skin on your face, neck, arms, back, décolleté, and abdomen.

3. IPL photofacial

An intense pulsed light (IPL) photofacial uses carefully controlled pulses of broad-spectrum light to target the deeper skin layers of your skin. This action stimulates your body’s natural cellular repair and revitalization process, successfully reducing sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and other conditions that prematurely age skin.

Other skin issues that respond well to IPL photofacial treatments include:

An IPL photofacial is a specialized procedure requiring medical skill and training to perform safely.

You may receive Botox injections right after an IPL facial but not immediately before. Please discuss combining IPL therapy with Botox with our team before scheduling your procedure.
