Who doesn’t love a good combo? From popcorn at the movies to pajamas and pizza parties, certain things in life go great together. Did you know that many medspa treatments make stellar combinations? Pairing up your cosmetic treatments can boost benefits and help you achieve optimal results. Here’s a look at four tried-and-true combos worth exploring:
Botox and Dermal Fillers
Many patients visit with one type of injectable in mind, not realizing that they may benefit from a combination treatment with Botox® and dermal fillers. The reason they work so well together is two-fold: For one, Botox and dermal fillers work on different areas. Botox, an “All-Star Wrinkle Eraser,” according to NewBeauty, works on the upper area of the face (forehead, crow’s feet) while dermal fillers help rejuvenate the lower areas (mouth, lips, cheeks). Second, Botox and dermal fillers work differently with distinct ingredients, so the treatments won’t clash or cancel each other out. Botox relaxes the muscle activity underlying wrinkles to create smoother, wrinkle-free skin, while dermal fillers restore volume and plump up skin with a smooth gel made with a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid. Combined, these two injectable treatments can rejuvenate the entire face for months of younger-looking skin with minimal downtime.
Halo and BBL Photofacials
Halo™ fractional laser skin resurfacing recently won a NewBeauty award as one of the “Best In-Office Treatments That Get Results.” This “powerhouse skin resurfacer” helps to reveal smoother, tighter skin with diminished lines and enhanced radiance by simultaneously treating both the surface of skin and deep below for dramatic skin renewal with moderate downtime. Photofacials are non-invasive light treatments that help to revitalize skin without damaging the skin’s surface to improve a variety of pigmentation irregularities, including age spots, freckles, sun spots, and redness. Combined, these two laser treatments can reveal dramatic improvements to the overall tone and texture of skin for a brighter, younger-looking, intensely revitalized complexion without the lengthy downtime you’d expect.
Microdermabrasion and Chemical Peels
These two tried-and-true forms of exfoliation remove the outermost layers of dead, dull skin cells to reveal refreshed, thoroughly revitalized skin with diminished imperfections. Chemical peels use fruit acids and other natural acids to exfoliate skin, while microdermabrasion gently sands the skin with a hand-held instrument. Combined, these two treatments more deeply penetrate the skin, intensifying your treatment for optimal benefits.
