Often when you are looking to improve or enhance your appearance, you have more than one area you’d like to target. While some cosmetic treatments like dermal fillers can be used in the lips and many other places with great results, sometimes there’s a more suitable alternative for some things. Another very commonly sought out treatment is anti-wrinkle injections, so it’s no surprise many people often wonder if lip fillers and anti-wrinkle injections can be used together as part of a well-rounded treatment plan.
Lip fillers provide volume, and they can address a variety of cosmetic concerns related to the lips. A lot can be achieved with the addition of volume, often even lack of symmetry or balanced proportions can be vastly improved with a precision application of filler applied by someone adept at providing these treatments. Lip fillers are currently booming in popularity for their ability to enhance the size of lips in younger patients, and assist those with thin lips or thinning lips from ageing. If you want bigger lips for whatever reason, often lip fillers are a great option to consider in most situations. Lip fillers treatment are fast to apply with the average treatment taking around 15 minutes, with lasting times of 6 – 18 months depending on factors such as the specific lip fillers used.
This is a treatment just about everyone has heard of, though usually under a different name. In Australia, you will find clinics using this name in place of what you’ve likely heard it called in the past due to regulations. Anti-wrinkle injections relax underlying muscles, which is excellent for dynamic wrinkles (wrinkles that are increased in appearance when you move your face), and often some static wrinkles as well if the correct areas are targeted. Specific muscle groups in the face are targeted depending on what areas of the face you are looking to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, once these underlying muscles are relaxed you can acheive a reduction in tension in other areas, allowing other muscle groups to pick up the slack.
Interestingly this treatment is also used outside of cosmetic medicine as well, and it has been used for a number of things such as reducing muscle problems in those with cerebral palsy. This injectable has been used extensively over the years and is considered quite safe, many potential adverse outcomes that come from its use are caused by inexperience, such as facial droop, which is temporary. This injectable has also been used to treat eye disorders such as crossed eyes, uncontrolled blinking, and many muscle or movement disorders such as torticollis or cervical dystonia.
Yes, this is actually something that is quite common, as both are great at achieving different things due to their different mechanisms and functionality, so they pair well together. If you are looking to deal with the signs of ageing or work on making some broader changes to your appearance, these are two products that work exceptionally well in conjunction if you use them both to their strengths. With both of these injectable treatments being non-invasive, non-surgical, and semi-permanent, it makes sense a lot of people are looking to combine treatments like these. Interest in non-surgical lip augmentation and other cosmetic concerns is rising due to several factors, especially the speed they can be performed, the little to no downtime incurred, and the flexibility these treatments can provide. Speak with your practitioner about what you want to acheive and work with them to develop a plan that suits your target outcomes; you’ll likely be impressed by what the combination of these two treatments can acheive.
