Injectable wrinkle fillers are injected into the skin to give you a more youthful appearance. These soft tissue fillers fill in lines and wrinkles that are the result of aging, smoking, sun exposure and gravity. The typical procedure takes less than thirty minutes and results last one to two years. There is no downtime with this procedure, but bruising and swelling can occur temporarily, so please plan life events accordingly.
While botulinum toxin injections work by relaxing muscles, injectable wrinkle fillers use substances that fill in lines and creases and add volume to facial features. They can be used to plump up cheeks and lips, soften facial features and reduce saggy skin. Often, they are used in conjunction with other skin treatment procedures (e.g., Kybella and botulinum toxin injections).
Our aesthetic nurses utilize hyaluronic acid, a synthetic version of the lubricating gel the body naturally produces to plump the skin. HA is absorbed by the body over time, which means follow-up injections may be necessary to maintain desired results.
