Facial injectables are designed to help fill in facial wrinkles or to relax the muscles causing the wrinkles, which helps in restoring a more youthful look by smoothing the skin out
Botox and dermal fillers are cosmetic treatments given through injections. They are minimally invasive, meaning they do not involve surgery.
Dermal fillers contain ingredients that add fullness to areas that have thinned due to aging. This thinning is common in the cheeks, lips, and around the mouth.
Wrinkle Relaxers (Botox)
Botox works by blocking nerve signals in the muscles where it is injected. When those nerve signals are interrupted, the affected muscle is temporarily paralyzed or frozen. Without movement of these selected muscles in the face, certain wrinkles may be softened, reduced, or even removed.
Hyaluronidase is what the body produces naturally to break down fillers, so by injecting more, it allows the lips to regain natural shape quicker, usually breaking down the filler within 3-4 days.
Radiesse is an injectable, cosmetic skin treatment used to fill specific areas of the face and hands. It stimulates your body’s natural collagen, filling in wrinkles long term and helping your skin develop new collagen in the process. This treatment is intended for wrinkles and folds around the mouth and nose, and areas of fat loss in the face. It’s also for the backs of hands where volume has been lost. Radiesse can last for up to two years.
Kenalog injections are typically used to help deep, cystic acne lesions resolve fast. We safely and effectively perform steroid (Kenalog) injections into inflamed and cystic acne lesions. This works to decrease the large “bump” that is below the surface of the skin and to minimize the risks of scarring.
