Every cosmetic procedure brings an opportunity to enhance your appearance. However, with advancements in aesthetic medicine, the trend of monotherapies is dwindling, and the newer concept of combination treatments is gaining continual popularity. Some of the finest minds in dermatology are on a quest to make treatments more effective, quicker, and more comfortable. Therefore, cosmetologists have started offering a range of injectables and facial rejuvenation products that are more beneficial when given together to address an underlying issue.
Combination therapies use several modalities, all included in one bundle, to attain the most naturallooking, long-lasting results over time and reduce visible signs of aging. The idea of combination treatment emerges from the fact that our body is made of different anatomical layers like skin, bones, fatty tissues, ligaments, and muscles. Aging results from the interplay of changes occurring in all these anatomical layers, and all need love and care differently to stay youthful and age gracefully. Deformation caused by aging should be repaired, which usually involves treatment with more than a single agent or technology. No single treatment can achieve all the results to reverse the signs of aging. Combining the number of treatments helps bring out the best and the most optimum results and takes appearance to another level.
When and how to Combine Different Aesthetic Components Safely
The question is when and how to combine different aesthetic components safely for the face, hands, neck, and beyond, rendering great results.
One size doesn’t fit all!
The science of combination treatments is personal, as every person has a unique genetic code, specific skin type, different skincare requirements, concerns, and desired outcomes. The multifaceted combination therapy approach uniquely combines Botox/Dysport, chemical peels, HA dermal fillers, RF micro-needling, IV injectables, LASER resurfacing, etc. Each of these treatments uniquely targets a specific aspect of the aging process.
The Most Popular Combination Treatments
The most popular combination treatments include ‘Laser treatment with Juvederm® and Botox®’, ‘Botox and dermal fillers’, and ‘botulinum toxin (incobotulinumtoxinA, Xeomin®/Bocouture®), calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA), hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, and Ultherapy®.’
Regarding the sequence of multiple treatments in one area, there is a solid agreement to consider spacing each treatment by 1–2 weeks to allow settling local side effects and to assess the results. However, if administered on the same day, incobotulinumtoxinA, HA fillers, and CaHA may be administered in any sequence. For combination therapy with multiple aesthetic components on the same day, Ultherapy® should be done before the filler or incobotulinumtoxinA. Similarly, Laser treatment with Juvederm® and Botox® can also be performed on the same day. Most cosmetologists prefer to perform the laser treatment first, as it is not known whether the laser energy causes the filler material to break down and adversely affect the results. However, Juvederm® and Botox® are not reported to interact with each other.
Combo Treatment Benefits
Treating multiple layers at same time
The skin is made of multiple layers, and aging results from the interplay between all these layers. A single mode of treatment cannot fix all the issues. Therefore, combo treatments work at multiple layers simultaneously, improving the patient’s overall appearance. In short, combination treatment is a multipurpose treatment.
Shorter recovery time
People think undergoing multiple treatments simultaneously invites extra pain and more extended downtime. That’s not true, anyway. Combination treatments do not add to the burden; they have a synergic effect that nurtures the skin and can help treat flare-ups without much extra effortt and whole result is more than the sum of the parts.
Lesser visits to cosmetologists
Combination treatments address multiple skin needs in one sitting. Combination therapy replaces several sittings with one sitting, saving a lot of time.
Longevity of results
The relative permanence of results in combination treatments is reported to be far more than the individual therapies. Thus, multiple treatments running in parallel give ageless beauty and sensational savings!
It remains essential to consult a dermatologist before proceeding with combination therapies so that each patient and his skin will get the best. After all, a healthy appearance gives people a healthy heart!
