What are Cosmetic Injectables?
Cosmetic injectables can help to improve the look of your face, especially around the lips and jaw area. We utilize both Restylane as well as Juvederm to help improve the skin of your face. These cosmetic injectables can be done in conjunction with other procedures to help improve your smile. Most often, these injections are used to increase volume as well as reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles.
Why are Cosmetic Injectables needed?
Cosmetic injectables are often needed or wanted by patients who are looking to make a complete change to their appearance. You may be suffering from volume loss or even have issues with lip lines and deep wrinkles that need to be eradicated. Some of the reasons you'd want to consider cosmetic injectables include:
- You are suffering from volume loss around the face and jaw
- You have deep lines and wrinkles around the mouth and jaw
- You suffer from low self-esteem because of your appearance
- You want to avoid invasive plastic surgery
- You have issues with asymmetry (lips or mouth look uneven)
- You're looking to enhance your smile
Who is a candidate for Cosmetic Injectables?
Most patients who want cosmetic injectables are good candidates for the actual procedure. We will go over your health and medical history as well as perform a thorough examination. We will ask you about the areas you're looking to change or enhance and offer our own advice and recommendations according to what we feel you'd benefit from. Keep in mind that cosmetic injectables are not permanent, and future injections will be needed to maintain results.
What happens during cosmetic injectables treatment?
We will have you come into our office to be seated comfortably in one of our exam rooms. We will apply a topical anesthetic to help numb the skin so that the injections are more comfortable for you. From there, we will administer one or more injections in the area to be treated. You can expect some pain and redness as well as slight swelling for the first day following the injections. The results that you achieve can last for many months to about a year before retreatment is needed.
