Tired of looking tired? Injectable services include the use of dermal fillers and neurotoxins that minimize the appearance of mild to severe wrinkles and add volume where facial fat has been lost due to genetics or aging. Softening smile and frown lines and diminishing deep facial folds will give an appearance of a refreshed and more vibrant you. Injectable treatments are non-surgical and require minimal downtime. Results may vary depending on product used and location of treated area. Dr. Jonathan Grant and Chris Galbraith, our registered nurse practitioner, both emphasize a natural and refreshed look.
Botox® is an excellent way to reduce the appearance of wrinkles without making you look “expressionless.” Botox® is commonly used to help eliminate “worry lines”, “frown lines”, “smokers’ lines”, and “crow’s feet.” The procedure generally takes 15 to 30 minutes and the effects usually last about 3 to 4 months.
The muscle activity that causes frown lines is simply reduced, so you can still frown or look surprised without the wrinkles and creases. The results of this treatment will be maximized in 3 to 7 days.
Dysport, similar to Botox, is an injectable product used to temporarily minimize the look of frown lines without changing your natural look. The treated areas will help relax the muscle activity, while keeping the untreated facial muscles working as normal, still allowing you to show your beautiful facial expressions. These products are typically used between the eyebrows and “crows feet” areas. The procedure generally takes 15 to 30 minutes and the effects usually last about 3 to 4 months.
Restylane and Perlane restore volume to the skin to correct facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds, the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth. Restylane, the only FDA approved filler for lip injections can also add fullness and definition to your lips, giving you a little extra pucker for that perfect kiss. Both products are composed of a naturally occurring substance found in our bodies called hyaluronic acid. The micro-particles in Perlane are larger than those in Restylane, therefore helping to fill those deeper creases.
Radiesse is a volumizing dermal filler that replenishes lost volume in the face and helps to stimulate collagen naturally for long lasting results. With this treatment you will see immediate results as Radiesse provides structual support to diminish deep facial wrinkles and folds. Radiesse can last up to a full year and patients love the fullness Radiesse brings back to their face.
Juvederm® is a smooth gel filler composed of a naturally occurring substance found in our bodies called hyaluronic acid that helps to add structure and fullness to your skin. Juvederm® is injected under the skin to instantly restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, like your “smile lines,” “marionette lines”, or the vertical lines around the lips.
