Some of the most popular treatments available at BodyAesthetic Plastic Surgery are injections of tissue fillers and relaxers. Both treatment types reduce the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles, but they work in different ways. Relaxers such as Dysport and Botox injections can minimize the appearance of facial lines while also helping to prevent the development of new creases. Tissue filler injections fill in facial lines that have already appeared.
Tissue fillers do what the name implies: they plump up facial lines and creases that are too deep to be improved with treatments such as microdermabrasion or chemical peels (available in our Skincare Center). A filler injected beneath or within the skin makes facial lines and creases much less visible because they are plumped up with volume. When the skin is supported below the surface, the contours of your face are smoother and fuller, more like they were in your twenties.
Nearly everyone has heard about the effectiveness of Botox injections for reducing facial lines and wrinkles. The surgeons at BodyAesthetic Plastic Surgery have been certified as members of the National Educational Faculty for Botox.
Some patients receive injections of both relaxers and tissue fillers. To learn more about these popular procedures and determine which might work best for you, follow the links below.
