Because they do not require invasive surgery and there is little or no downtime to recover, injectable fillers are quickly becoming a popular way of achieving a more youthful look and improving the contours of the face. However, not all injectable fillers are created equal so depending on the enhancement you are trying to make, that will determine the type of injectable filler you should be using.
Whether it is lines in your forehead, thin lips or circles under your eyes, the physicians and staff at Elite Facial Plastic Surgery are trained and certified to use the appropriate injectable fillers in their Tampa office, to treat your specific symptoms. By properly administering injectable fillers, Dr. Dominic and his staff at Elite Facial Plastic Surgery strive to give you the enhanced look you always wanted, without surgery. Here is a list of injectable procedures available in Tampa at Elite Facial Plastic Surgery and what each is used for:
BOTOX® Cosmetic – This popular injectable is not a filler. Instead, it “freezes” the muscles to help treat frown lines between the eyebrows and crow’s feet around the eyes. These unattractive features lead to an angry or tired look, although you may be very well awake and happy. By injecting the muscle that lies underneath frown lines or crow’s feet, Dr. Dominic and his nurse injector at Elite Facial Plastic Surgery are able to relax those muscles and, in turn, smooth them out. There is no recovery time required after receiving this injectable in Tampa, and most patients who receive BOTOX® Cosmetic see the best results at day 30 post-treatment.
XEOMIN® – Dr. Dominic and his nurse injector at Elite Facial Plastic Surgery use XEOMIN®, another injectable similar to BOTOX, in Tampa to help patients defeat the look of fine lines and wrinkles due to the day-to-day exposure to the sun, stress and gravity. XEOMIN® is injected into the targeted areas of a patient’s face to stop the nerve impulses that cause the muscles under the problem area to contract. Once this injectable has relaxed the contracting muscles, the skin of the targeted area smooths out and patients usually experience positive results for up to 3 or 4 months.
RADIESSE® – This injectable filler used in Tampa by Elite Facial Plastic Surgery is popular for patients looking for an injectable mid-facelift or hand rejuvenation. This injectable filler is used to target areas in the face; such as: between the eyes, corners of the mouth, lower eyelids and cheeks. Along with aging of the face and neck, also comes the aging of our hands. Veins and tendons in the hand begin to protrude as a result of us loosing volume in the area. Hands can be rejuvenated, however, with the help of injectable filler RADIESSE®. Injected into the hands during a 5-10 minute procedure, the injectable filler restores volume in the hands, creating a more youthful look.
Juvederm and Restylane – Dr. Dominic and his nurse injector at Elite Facial Plastic Surgery use these injectable fillers in Tampa to perform lip enhancement, which gives patients volume in their lips and decreases lip lines. This procedure takes 20-30 minutes and there is no recovery time associated with it.
