Face wrinkles, creases and lines can show the signs of aging well before you reach old age. Face injections and fillers are temporary, non-invasive procedures that rejuvenate your skin. These face injectables reduce and eliminate wrinkles, enhance the appearance of scars, plump lips and replace lost soft tissue volume. All injections are given by trained dermatology staff, a board-eligible plastic surgeon or a board-certified plastic surgeon.
BOTOX® and other wrinkle injections reduce the activity of muscles in your face that cause wrinkles. They temporarily paralyze, or freeze, the muscles that control your facial expressions to soften or remove common wrinkles like forehead lines, frown lines and crow’s feet.
BOTOX is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures. A purified form of botulinum toxin is injected into your wrinkles to block the nerve signals and limit muscle activity. BOTOX is a temporary solution to reduce or remove moderate to severe wrinkles caused by muscle movements.
XEOMIN is similar to BOTOX, except the botulinum toxin is the sole ingredient in the injection. XEOMIN injections are effective at eliminating expression lines and wrinkles that result from your everyday facial movements. Wrinkles are reduced or removed for about three months.
Dysport is a facial injection specifically for the frown lines between your eyebrows. It minimizes the wrinkles on your forehead without freezing the facial muscles on the rest of your face. Results take effect two to three days after treatment and last up to four months.
Dermal fillers are facial injections that can do more than reduce wrinkles. Instead of targeting the nerves, they inject collagen into your problem areas to stimulate collagen growth and restore volume and fullness to your face. Dermal fillers are used to:
- Plump thin lips.
- Enhance shallow contours.
- Soften facial creases.
- Improve the appearance of recessed scars.
- Remove wrinkles.
Face fillers smooth out the shallow lines and fill in deep wrinkles, giving your face a more youthful appearance. Fillers are often used under the eyes, on the cheeks and around the mouth. We use a variety of dermal fillers to target specific areas of your face:
- RADIESSE® – Ideal for smile and marionette lines, chin wrinkles, pre-jowl folds and the corners of your mouth
- JUVÉDERM® – Smooths out smile lines and “parentheses” around your mouth
- BELOTORO BALANCE® – Works on moderate lines around the mouth as well as delicate areas like etched-in smile lines and vertical lip lines
Lip injections are dermal fillers designed to add fullness to your lips to create a plumper look. JUVÉDERM Ultra XC is a lip augmentation treatment for naturally thin lips or lips that have thinned over time. JUVÉDERM lip fillers give you plumper lips for up to one year.
