Get a New Year Refresh with a Combination Botox® and Microneedling Treatment
Setting goals and aspirations for the new year? Why not add prioritizing self-care to the list? You can begin by getting a combination of Botox® and microneedling to rejuvenate your face. Learn more about what they entail.

In today’s busy world, attention to physical appearance often ranks low on the list of priorities. However, taking care of how you look is crucial. 

When you look good, you also feel good. Starting the year with a combination of Botox® and microneedling treatment is a significant first step in prioritizing self-care. 

At Dragon Healthcare Services & Med Spa in Springville, Utah, Joseph Dragon, FNP-BC, and our team offer highly specialized and personalized care for people seeking medical aesthetic services, including Botox and microneedling treatments. 

Learn more about Botox and microneedling and what to expect from both treatments. 

What is Botox?

Botox is a medical treatment used to reduce the appearance of dynamic lines and wrinkles caused by years of facial expressions, improving the appearance of your face and making you look younger. 

They work by temporarily weakening or paralyzing specific muscles in your face that crease your skin when they contract, like around your eyes and forehead. 

What is microneedling? 

Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure used to rejuvenate your skin. During the treatment, we use tiny needles to make minuscule holes in the top layer of your skin. This stimulates collagen and elastin production, making your skin smoother and firmer. 

Who should get Botox and microneedling treatments?

Botox is ideal for people who have dynamic lines and wrinkles. It’s essential to be in good health before getting Botox. 

If you have mild scarring, hyperpigmentation, loose skin, or enlarged pores, microneedling can help with these. It also helps with fine lines and wrinkles caused by age and loss of collagen. 

What to expect from both procedures?

Right after getting Botox, you’ll notice fewer lines and wrinkles. This typically lasts for around three to six months. 

With microneedling, you might feel a little uncomfortable, but you shouldn’t feel pain. Your skin might be a little red and swollen afterward, but that should resolve within a few days. 

Microneedling helps improve the texture and overall appearance of your skin. You have to be patient to see visible results from this procedure, which can take three to six months.

Why should you combine Botox with microneedling?

Both treatments share a primary goal, improving the appearance of your skin, but they each target different skin issues. Combining them results in improved results and better-looking skin. 

You can wait a couple of weeks between procedures or get both done on the same day.
