What are Injectables and Fillers?
While both neurotoxin injectables and dermal fillers are effective at treating fine lines and wrinkles, they are made of different ingredients and treat the signs of aging through different processes.
Derived from the botulinum toxin, neurotoxin injectables are administered directly into the muscles of treated areas with a fine needle. The neurotoxin blocks nerve signals from reaching underlying facial muscles, temporarily relaxing them. This smoothes out the skin and reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
At Skin Deep Laser MD, we currently offer two neurotoxin injectables: BOTOX® and Xeomin®
Injected directly underneath the skin, dermal fillers are mostly made from hyaluronic acid (HA) or other substances that are found naturally in the body. Dermal fillers provide instant volume and fullness underneath the skin, temporarily erasing wrinkles, lines and folds.
Dr. Riehm has several dermal filer options available to help with volume loss or contour your profile. Schedule a consultation with her to find out which filler is best for you and your situation. Click here to schedule an appointment today
One of the most popular dermal fillers, Juvederm® is commonly used to volumize moderate to severe wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth.
Juvederm Voluma XC®
When age-related volume loss is primarily in the cheeks, Juvederm Voluma XC® is specially designed for deep injection into the cheek areas.
Versa was recently released in the United States. It's been in Europe and Canada for years. This product is excellent for lips. Patients experience much less initial swelling and should last longer than other products available.
Made of Calcium Hydroxylapatite, Radiesse® also stimulates the production of new collagen, the protein in your skin that enhances structure, to provide continuous improvement over time.
A smooth, flexible gel that integrates into your facial tissue, this filler effectively treats stubborn, deeply set lines and wrinkles.
Are Injectables and Dermal Fillers Safe?
While minor bruising, swelling and redness can occur at injection sites, both neurotoxin injectables and dermal fillers have proven safety profiles. You may be given an allergy test prior to treatment to reduce the risk of adverse reactions.
The visibility and longevity of results depend on each individual condition, and a customized treatment plan will be created for you by Dr. Riehm.
