(English) These aesthetic treatments are better two-gether
Everyone knows Botox and when is usually one of the treatments that come to mind when you mention aesthetics or antiaging. Known for being safe and effective in treating deep lines and wrinkles by relaxing the very muscles responsible for these lines.
But did you know that Botox works better when paired with other aesthetic treatments? Here’s our list and why they work so well together.
#1 Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers complement Botox procedures in that they are fully customisable and both take only minutes to administer in the hands of an experience doctor.
While Botox works by relaxing the muscles to prevent lines and wrinkles from appearing whether or not you are consciously creating them with your facial expressions, Fillers work by filling and plumping areas that appear sunken due to loss of collagen with age.
By administering both Botox and Filler injections into your face, your doctor can effectively eradicate lines and sunken-ness (think undereyes, cheeks and even temples) for a smoother, more youthful appearance.

#2 Laser Resurfacing
Laser resurfacing is a generic term that refers to any type of lasers that help to improve the skin’s overall quality to enhance one’s complexion and radiance.
Depending on your skin’s concerns, ranging from acne scars, dullness to pigmentation, your doctor should be able to recommend an ideal laser resurfacing treatment for you based on your skin type and tolerance for downtime.
The common principle surrounding lasers is that they use powerful light energy to heat up the skin and stimulate it to heal itself via the production of collagen. This helps you to achieve improved complexion and an enviable glow, and when paired with anti-wrinkle injections will offer an all-round younger appearance.
#3 Chemical Peels
If you’re looking to improve your skin’s texture and tone on a smaller budget, chemical peels may be for you. Generally more cost effective than laser treatments, chemical peels use chemical exfoliants such as AHAs to get rid of the damaged outer layers of the skin to reveal softer, smoother skin after skin has healed.
Depending on your current skin condition and preference for downtime, your doctor can concoct a chemical peel strength just for you. By combining this with Botox, you can enjoy a fully customised treatment for your face.
