The signs of aging will eventually take hold of our appearance as we get older, but there are many different ways that we can fight them back. Injectables are among the most popular methods of facial rejuvenation and encompass a wide range of substances that can help rejuvenate the look and feel of the skin.
What are Injectables?
Injectables are controlled substances that are injected into the skin to improve various aspects of the area where it is injected. They can be used to add volume where it has been lost and to fill in wrinkles and fine lines to provide a more youthful look. They are most commonly used to treat the common signs of aging like wrinkles and fine lines and are capable of adding volume to the lips and cheeks.
Injectables are minimally invasive treatment options that can address a wide range of cosmetic concerns. Dr. Banis Plastic Surgery proudly offers a myriad of injectable treatments to address your most pressing cosmetic concerns.
Juvederm is one of the most popular injectable treatments due to its ability to fill in wrinkles while replenishing volume in the areas where it is injected. It is composed of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps assist the skin in moisture retention. One type of Juvederm is known as Juvederm XC. This is a smooth gel filler that can instantly smooth away wrinkles around the mouth and nose. It is also infused with lidocaine to provide a numbing effect in the treatment area once administered.
In addition to Juvederm XC, there are other products in the Juvederm family of fillers.
Juvederm Volbella is an injectable that is used as a lip filler. It is a very soft, smooth gel that is FDA approved to soften lip lines/wrinkles around the mouth while adding a subtle enhancement in volume to the lips.
Juvederm Voluma XC
One of the newest members of the Juvederm family is Voluma XC. This injectable treatment is designed to target the cheek area and helps to create a more youthful facial profile. The results provided by Volume XC can last up to 2 years!
Juvederm Vollure XC
Another late entry in the family of Juvederm fillers is Vollure XC. This injectable is designed to provide immediate correction to the nasolabial folds and deep facial lines. It’s the perfect solution for those who desire an instant improvement in facial volume and the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.
Botox has been used as an injectable for many years. It is a neuromodulator that can help reduce wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of aging. The natural aging process, facial contractions, sun damage, and pollution will cause the formation of wrinkles and crow’s feet. Botox injections can relax the facial contractions that are responsible for the formation of wrinkles and help you reclaim your youthful appearance.
The results provided by the treatment are seen within a day or two of the injection. The results provided are temporary but repeat treatment sessions can be used to maintain the transformation.
Dr. Banis Plastic Surgery is one of the first facilities to provide Xeomin in this region. Xeomin is very similar to Botox, but is free of accessory proteins and can even provide results that last longer. This can also help in preventing antibody resistance. Just like Botox, it also works to relax facial muscle contractions responsible for the formation of wrinkles. This causes fine lines and wrinkles to vanish.
Sculptra works with your body to revitalize collagen production and works to restore your skin’s structure. Stimulating collagen production will help empower your skin to replenish volume and address the underlying tissue structures that give the skin a more lively appearance.
Radiesse is a dermal filler that can be used on the face and hands. It contains calcium hydroxyapatite, a substance that helps in plumping up the skin. It is also capable of stimulating the production of collagen in the skin.
