The latest non-invasive cosmetic treatments use injectable products such as Botox® Cosmetic, Restylane®, Radiesse® and Juvederm® Injectable Gel. With a quick injection, these products can reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles, folds and other signs of aging.
What Can Injectables Do?
An injectable treatment is a great alternative for patients who desire:
- Youthful fullness in the face
- Plump lips
- Softened facial creases and wrinkles
- A smooth forehead, with reduced frown lines and crow's feet
Although injectables cannot treat sagging skin, they can treat wrinkles and restore tissue volume. They provide immediate results at a lower cost than surgery. Injectables aren't permanent, so repeated treatments are necessary to maintain your results.
Botox Cosmetic is a popular injection that temporarily reduces or eliminates frown lines, forehead creases, crows feet near the eyes and thick bands in the neck giving the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance.
Collagen injections have long been used to smooth the development of facial lines and folds, including nasolabial folds running between the outside of the nose and mouth, frown lines between the eyebrows, and crow's feet at the outside corners of the eyes. This treatment is also useful for lip augmentation, which creates fuller lips.
Dysport is a version of botulinum toxin that can treat frown lines in the space between the eyebrows. These lines are caused by repeated movement of the facial muscles, and as a result they often appear earlier than other facial wrinkles.
Juvederm injectable gel can fill in and support facial skin and tissues that have lost their support as result of the normal aging process. When facial tissue loses volume, Juvederm is an effective way to fill in the lines, wrinkles and folds that appear as a result.
There are many ways we can boost the volume of your lips using injectable dermal fillers. These injectable fillers may be composed of fat removed from your own body, or can be any of a number of commercially available fillers that contain collagen or hyaluronic acid.
A liquid face lift offers our patients a non-surgical alternative to facial rejuvenation surgery, made possible by Botox® Cosmetic and the latest injectable wrinkle fillers. If you're concerned about signs of aging and seeking a cost-effective solution, the liquid facelift may be right for you.
Radiesse is a brand-name facial dermal filler that uses calcium hydroxylapatite to fill in creases, wrinkles and frown lines, as well as boost fullness in various facial areas. The calcium hydroxylapatite is a mineral-like compound that occurs naturally in human bones, but is biosynthetically produced using no animal derivatives.
Dermal fillers are an increasingly popular method of treating the appearance of facial wrinkles and lines. Restylane is a family of injectable cosmetic treatments that includes Restylane, Restylane-L, Perlane, and Perlane-L.
Sculptra is a minimally invasive injectable filler that can increase facial volume and produce long-lasting, natural-looking results. Sculptra can be used as a wrinkle corrector as well as a treatment for facial fat loss.
