Dermal fillers are injectable substances that plump up wrinkles and sagging skin. These treatments fill in lines and contours to replace lost volume.
Collagen is a protein that builds your connective tissues, muscles, and bones. It keeps your skin full and tight. As you age, your collagen levels decrease. Your skin becomes thinner, less elastic, and starts to sag. Lost volume causes your skin to wrinkle and fold.
Injectable fillers restore this depleted volume to keep your skin youthful and firm. Treatments are minimally invasive, fast, and require no downtime.
Botox and fillers are both injectables that smooth facial lines, but they work in different ways.
Fillers use gel-like substances to replace lost volume with instant results. Botox and Jeuveau are neuromodulators that target the facial muscles that cause wrinkle formation. The medication prevents muscle movement to stop the skin from creasing. Botox and Jeuveau take 2-10 days to take effect and reduce the appearance of wrinkles for about 3-6 months.
Injectable fillers treat static wrinkles, which develop from volume and collagen loss. As your skin loses its dermal support, the skin thins and sags.
The most common wrinkles that fillers treat are:
Fillers can also help with facial contouring. Many clients opt for fillers to define their cheekbones or jawline, enhance hollow cheeks, and plump up thin lips.
Botox and Jeuveau primarily treat crow’s feet, forehead lines, and glabellar lines between the eyebrows. The team may also recommend this popular neuromodulator to slim the masseter muscles in your jaw and reduce TMJ pain caused by clenching/grinding.
Injecting fillers takes only a few minutes and requires no downtime. After applying a topical anesthetic, Dr. Karolina Grochowska injects your fillers. She may massage the filler to help it settle into your skin and provide natural-looking results. While your results are immediate, you may experience minor swelling, redness, and bruising at the injection site for a few days after treatment.
Injectable fillers offer long-lasting results for about 6-12 months. You can return to the medical spa for maintenance injections and combine your treatment with Botox, Jeuveau, chemical peels, and other aesthetic treatments to enhance your results.
