Many people visit Dr. Schalit’s office and wonder whether they can get Botox and fillers like Juvederm at the same time. They’ve heard of both and believe that both treatments may help them achieve optimal results. So, is this true? Below, we’ll discuss the difference between Botox and fillers and whether you should get them at the same time.
The Difference Between Botox and Fillers
Although the words Botox and fillers get used interchangeably sometimes, they are actually quite different. Botox treats fine lines and wrinkles by preventing muscle contraction while fillers which are made from Hyaluronic Acid which help to add volume to the face, which we lose as we age.
Botox is usually injected to treat the dynamic wrinkles that occur when you make facial expressions. Fillers, however, focus on giving the face a smoother appearance with added volume. Dermal fillers like Juvederm XC are used for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds like the nasolabial folds. Also, while Botox lasts 3 to 4 months, fillers can last anywhere between 9 to 18 months.

Dr. Schalit Recommends Botox and Fillers Simultaneously
Since Botox and fillers treat different aging concerns, they can be used at the same time. In fact, Dr. Schalit recommends their simultaneous use as this combination approach can take years off your face. While it may be more expensive to get Botox and filler at once, it is worth the money as you’ll be left with more dramatic and longer-lasting results.
Good Candidates for Botox and Fillers
If you’re looking for a non-invasive way to treat dynamic and static wrinkles, getting Botox and fillers at the same time is a great idea. This combination treatment can completely rejuvenate your face and restore a youthful, beautiful face. During a consultation, we’ll inform you whether you can benefit from both or one of these treatments.
I highly recommend Dr. Schalit for any of your cosmetic needs! I remember how nervous I was at my very fist ever Botox appointment but Dr. Schalit & his nurses were extremely understanding. I never felt rushed while asking my list of questions. I now look forward to my appointments! I’ve been to both of his office locations & both are easily accessible & clean!!! If your looking to fight aging then look no further, you will not be disappointed.
