The aim of combining different minimally invasive techniques is to achieve the most harmonious and most natural-looking facial rejuvenation as effectively and as safely as possible. Due to their safety and versatility, botulinum toxin and soft tissue fillers have become the most sought-after modalities for correcting the signs of facial aging. Recently, bioabsorbable threads used for repositioning ptotic facial tissue have been added into the picture. More practitioners are also combining threads with fillers and botulinum toxin to achieve longer-lasting and natural-looking results. Our aim is to provide guidance on basic anatomical landmarks and areas where botulinum toxin injections, subcutaneous filler injections, and bioabsorbable suspension threads are placed on the face. We would also like to share our best practices on the best combination, spacing the appropriate time intervals in between each procedure to allow for the shortest possible recovery time, as well as periprocedural advice for an integrated treatment approach.
