A facelift can be ideal if you're unhappy with advanced signs of aging in the lower area of your face, while minimally invasive med spa treatments are typically used for minor lines and wrinkles. Many of my patients don’t realize that surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic treatments aren’t mutually exclusive. In fact, some nonsurgical procedures may even improve your facelift results. Here are four ways BOTOX® can enhance the effects of your facelift.
1. Treats Crow's Feet
Crow's feet, which are the lines that appear around the eyes when you smile, can give your eyes an aged, tired appearance. Using BOTOX® to smooth away crow's feet can help your eye area look more youthful and well-rested to complement your facelift results.
2. Minimizes Frown Lines
One of the first places on the face to show signs of aging is often in between the eyebrows above the nose. BOTOX® temporarily paralyzes the muscles that create frown lines to create an unlined forehead, helping you look years younger (even without a facelift).
3. Full-Face Rejuvenation
Your facelift will primarily rejuvenate the lower part of your face, while BOTOX® is used in the eye and brow area. Using BOTOX® in addition to your facelift is a great way to deliver a more comprehensive improvement to your entire appearance.
4. Prevents Additional Aging
Using regular BOTOX® treatments can be a great way to slow wrinkle development and maintain the youthful transformation a facelift can deliver. Together, we can discuss your specific concerns to make sure you get the most out of your facial rejuvenation experience with a combination of surgical and nonsurgical procedures.
