Injectable Fillers

Botox®, Juvéderm®, Voluma and More

injectables-modelOver the last several years, non-surgical cosmetic treatments like injectable treatments and dermal fillers have gained popularity among those who crave a younger appearance but don’t wish to undergo an invasive procedure. These treatments, which are used to dramatically lessen signs of facial aging, include injections for smoothing out wrinkles and creases, adding youthful volume to the face and correcting sagging skin. The result is a more youthful appearance without the long recovery time of a surgical procedure. Depending on the type of treatment, your results can last several months up to two or more years.

If you’re looking for a quick, non-invasive cosmetic treatment that delivers immediate results with zero downtime, then an injectable treatment may be the perfect solution for you.

How an Injectable Treatment Works

An injectable treatment is a non-invasive procedure that typically takes between 15 and 30 minutes to administer. A topic anesthetic is sometimes used to numb the treatment area, and then a fine needle is used to inject the substance. Since there is zero downtime, you can return to work and other normal activities immediately after treatment.

After an Injectable Treatment

After an injectable cosmetic treatment, you will likely experience mild soreness and redness on the treatment area. Some patients may also experience some mild bruising, though this is rare and can easily be concealed with makeup. These aftereffects typically last no longer than a day or two. Avoid rubbing or massaging the injection site for the first couple of hours. Regular exercise can be resumed within a day or two of your treatment. Results are often noticeable immediately or within a day or so of treatment, though some fillers have results that appear more gradually over time.
