Sometimes, two skin treatments really are better than one! See how expertly-crafted skin treatment combinations can work synergistically to provide you with even more complete results than a single treatment may be able to offer on its own. Our team of skin experts recommends the following perfect pairs for a tailored approach to address various skin concerns at the same time and unlock the full potential of your skincare treatments.

1. BBL + Halo Laser Treatments

Broadband light (BBL) therapy and Halo laser skin resurfacing is one of the most popular laser-focused pairing. Each of these treatments target distinct skin concerns, giving you a more comprehensive final result than either device can provide on its own. BBL treatments, for example, are best-known for targeting and reducing pigmentation concerns like redness, visible blood vessels, sun damage, and dark spots. 

Halo is a hybrid fractional laser that effectively and gently improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, loose skin, scarring, enlarged pores, and rough or uneven skin texture. Combining the two allows you to target a wider range of skin concerns simultaneously while still being gentle on the skin and minimizing downtime.

2. BBL + Erbium Laser Treatments 

Similarly, BBL treatments pair well with erbium lasers like ProFractional and Contour TRL. Erbium lasers remove the outermost layer of skin to stimulate collagen and address a number of common skin concerns, including sun damage, lines and wrinkles, scars, and dark spots. BBL treatments can complement erbium laser results by also addressing pigment-related concerns like redness, broken capillaries, visible blood vessels, sun damage, and dark spots. 

Additionally, pairing BBL with erbium laser treatments can create a more customized approach to your overall treatment and results, based on your skin’s specific needs.

3. BBL + Skinvive

Skinvive is an innovative injectable treatment that uses microdroplets of hyaluronic acid to deeply and intensely hydrate the skin. When used after a laser or light treatment like BBL, Skinvive can serve as “the icing on the cake” to your treatment, imparting deep hydration and a smooth, dewy glow to your complexion. The addition of Skinvive may also help to enhance your skin’s post-laser recovery process.

4. Kybella + SkinTyte

Kybella is a popular injectable treatment used to improve the appearance of a double chin by “melting away” stubborn fat cells in the submental, or double chin, area. SkinTyte makes a perfect pair for Kybella because it works to further tighten the skin using rapid pulses of broadband light. When combined, Kybella and SkinTyte offer enhanced results for a smoother, tighter, and more contoured jawline. 

While most people see the best results with a series of up to 6 Kybella treatments, only one SkinTyte combination treatment is needed to complement your Kybella results.

5. Kybella + Volux

Volux is a type of hyaluronic acid filler specifically formulated for the chin and jawline. Using Volux to create a more well-defined jawline in conjunction with Kybella to reduce submental fat can provide a more well-rounded and balanced final result. You might also consider adding Botox to this combination if platysmal neck bands are a concern for you.

6. Botox + Volux

Speaking of neck bands, these vertical lines in the middle of the neck can be effectively treated with a combination of Botox and Volux to both relax the muscles that cause neck bands to occur in the first place and adding more definition to the chin and jawline. This perfect pairing can create a more youthful facial contour while still appearing seamless and natural.

7. Voluma + Volux

Voluma and Volux are both hyaluronic acid fillers by Juvéderm, though each one is formulated slightly differently. While Volux is designed for the chin and jawline area, Voluma works best to add volume to the cheeks and mid-face area. Together, Volux and Voluma can create a more balanced side profile and lower facial features.

8. Voluma + Vollure 

Like Volux and Voluma, Vollure is another HA filler in the Juvéderm lineup. Vollure has a slightly lower density than Voluma and works wonders at smoothing away nasolabial folds and other lines and creases around your mouth and nose. When paired together, Voluma and Vollure can achieve what’s sometimes called a “mini liquid facelift,” creating a smoothing and lifting effect by strategically adding volume and reducing wrinkles.

Bonus: Morning and Evening Skincare Duos

Not in the market for in-office skin treatments? Don’t worry, we have a few perfect pairings for your morning and evening skincare routines too!

AM skincare duos:

Boost anti-aging by pairing a powerhouse anti-aging product like SkinMedica TNS or SkinCeuticals CE Ferulic serum with SPF every morning as part of your daily routine. While anti-aging serums help to improve signs of aging on the skin, SPF prevents them from showing up in the future. If you are using a mineral-based, or physical, sunscreen, always apply it as the last step in your skincare regimen so that it is able to create a barrier between your skin and UV rays.

PM skincare duos:

Hydrate dry or flaking skin by pairing topical hyaluronic acid with a moisturizer as part of your evening skincare regimen. Hyaluronic acid is a humectant, which means it pulls moisture in from the surrounding environment. Humectants like HA are best paired with occlusive ingredients like beeswax, shea butter, squalane, and argan oil to then seal that moisture inside your skin so that it cannot escape into the air. For many people, using a heavier moisturizer during the day isn’t preferred because it can look heavy on the skin under makeup. Avoid this issue by using this perfect pairing at night!

Bottom Line

To get the most out of skin treatments, talk to your provider about which options pair well together. In many cases, you can not only enhance your initial outcome but also help to prolong your longer-term results by combining the right skin treatments. Ready to find your perfect pair?
