There are a number of injectable fillers that can offer great results to individuals who want to target trouble areas on the face without having plastic surgery. They can be administered in a matter of minutes, require no recovery time, and offer nearly instantaneous results.

Botox Cosmetic – This prescription medicine contains botulinum toxin type-A and can be injected into various muscles. It improves the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines, which occurs between the eyebrows. It can also be injected into the muscles around the eyes to combat severe cases of crow’s feet. It works by temporarily paralyzing these targeted muscles and is generally administered two or four times a year for maintenance.

Restylane – This versatile dermal filler can be used to address a number of issues. It is injected just beneath the skin and fills out wrinkles, adds volume, and rehydrates. Facial contours can be improved as a result of the extra hydration, resulting in a fuller and more youthful appearance. It can be used across the face, on the hands, and in the neck and décolletage areas. Results last for approximately six to nine months.

Juvederm – Wrinkles around the mouth and nose are instantly smoothed away with this Hyaluronic Acid filler. It gives new life to skin that has lost much of its elasticity and collagen by filling out the volume of the face and attracting water to the targeted areas. This hydration creates a fuller and smoother look. Results typically last about six months.
