Are you looking for a quick fix for wrinkles or creases in the skin of your face? Join millions of others who have discovered the effectiveness of temporary injectable solutions, like Botox and dermal fillers. These cosmetic enhancements require no long-term commitment and allow you to see for yourself what an aesthetic adjustment will look like on you.
Often, our patients will begin their cosmetic journey with an injectable – only to discover they love the result and opt for a longer-lasting solution in subsequent visits.
Wrinkles are most often caused by repeated muscle contractions over time. This is why wrinkles tend to show up in certain areas of the face, such as:
- Lines on the forehead caused by frowning, squinting, and other expressions
- “Crow’s feet” wrinkles at the outer corners of the eyes when smiling
- At the corners of the mouth from talking, smiling, frowning, and more
Botox works by temporarily halting the muscle contractions that lead to wrinkles. This reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in target areas. Botox is safe and effective, as well as FDA-approved to treat wrinkles at the eyes and forehead. It can take a few days to witness the full effects, which typically last about 4 months but can last longer with repeat treatments.
Like Botox, dermal fillers are an injectable cosmetic treatment, but dermal fillers work completely differently. These injections treat wrinkles, plus thinning lips, saggy skin, and sunken cheeks – common conditions that occur with age, as your skin contains less collagen and elastin, which help to keep the skin firm and plump.
Dermal fillers typically involve injecting hyaluronic acid, a gel-like substance similar to what your body produces naturally, to enhance the contours of your face, restore lost volume, and smooth fine lines and wrinkles. It can even be used to plump up your lips. Dermal fillers essentially turn the clock backward – helping you look young, attractive, and rejuvenated.
