Finding the Perfect Combination of Cosmetic Injectables

Choosing the right combination of cosmetic injectables is a powerful, nonsurgical way to rejuvenate and refresh your face. The benefits of Botox®, combined with the advantages of dermal fillers, can turn back the hands of time and restore your vibrant, youthful appearance. 

Here at the Women’s Center at Life Point Medical, Monique Petteys, FNP-C, is expertly trained in the fine art of combining injectables to smooth away wrinkles, tighten loose skin, and restore lost volume. Here’s how we combine injectables to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.

Injectables help restore your youthful appearance

When it comes to injectables, we have a wide variety of treatments to choose from that are designed to effectively reduce the appearance of aging without cosmetic surgery.  

Botox® is the most popular and most well-known injectable. Dermal fillers are also sought after and have a well-earned reputation for providing outstanding cosmetic results.

Botox versus dermal fillers

Each injectable is valuable in its own way in addressing your cosmetic concerns. The effects are temporary but long-term, and treatments are generally repeated periodically to maintain their benefits.


In the fight against aging, Botox reigns supreme as the top-requested injectable -- and for good reason. Botox can help fix wrinkles that develop over years from various facial expressions such as smiling and frowning. 

When injected into target areas, Botox effortlessly relaxes your facial muscles that lie just beneath the skin. It smooths away fine lines and wrinkles that can make you look tired and angry. Botox can help with:

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers work hand-in-hand with Botox. As you age, your skin loses volume and moisture, which contributes to sunken skin that makes you look older. Dermal fillers add volume and hydration back into your skin so that it appears plump and supple. 

When injected under the skin, dermal fillers can lift sagging cheeks, minimize lines and grooves around your mouth, and diminish the appearance of age spots and sun damage. Results of the dermal fillers we use at The Women’s Center at Life Point Medical Center can last a year or longer.

Enhancing your new look naturally

An unnatural appearance is one of the biggest concerns patients commonly have about injectables. Although the results of injectables are temporary, a miscalculation with the amount, location, or technique used to deliver these substances can leave you with an unnatural appearance for several months.

Too much Botox, for instance, can leave you appearing expressionless. Dermal fillers that don’t flow naturally with the contours of your face can leave you looking lumpy rather than smooth and youthful.

With the quality products and expertise offered by our team, you can expect great results that enhance your natural appearance and restore your youthful glow.
