Aesthetic Medicine - Commonly combined non-invasive procedures

Α comprehensive treatment plan may include multiple non-invasive procedures. For example, a comprehensive treatment plan may include injectables such as hyaluronicacidfat fillers or collagen to fill in wrinkles in the areas needed and to add fullness to hollowed areas. Botox may be added to relieve the muscle contraction that causes forehead wrinkles and crow’s feet.
Certain skin-resurfacing procedures such as microdermabrasion, chemical peels and laser treatments may be recommended along with facial fillers and injectables for optimal results. For example, peelings or laser may improve vertical lipstick lines, whilehyaluronic acid, adds fullness to thinned lips.
Any facial treatment that involves the use of heat such as a laser should not be combined with facial fillers or injectables because these treatments often produce a feeling of laziness and a tendency to lie down and rest.
Recommendations for specific facial fillers and injectables in the same location or at the same time, may vary among manufacturers and doctors. Some may advise that only one type of filler or injectable should be used in a particular area, because if an adverse reaction occurs, the likelihood for proper diagnosis is greater. Others support using certain fillers or injectables at the same time is acceptable, providing that the skin layer injected for each injectable or filler is different. You will need to consult a plastic surgeon when making the decision about combining procedures.
