Temporary injectable fillers are an outstanding breakthrough in cosmetic surgery that have become all the rage with people of all ages. Injectable cosmetic corrections can make a person’s skin appear years younger and more vibrant after just one treatment. Ideal for lines on the forehead, crow’s feet, laugh lines, and lines in between the eyes, fillers like Botox can do a world of good for those looking for a solution to these issues.
Botox is famously used by people all over the world. This filler is effective because it causes a temporary paralysis of the muscles that cause wrinkles in the dermis. When the muscles are temporarily relaxed, they are unable to contract and cause undesirable wrinkles.
Botox has many uses besides those that are cosmetic. It can help with muscular eye disorders, and can treat sweat gland problems in the armpits, hands and feet.
Botox takes about a half an hour per session, with results visible in three days. Few people can develop side effects from injectable fillers. These risks include eyelid drop, muscle weakness, respiratory illness, or flu-like symptoms. Often these side effects subside within a week of treatment and are not harmful.
Cosmoderm and Cosmoplast are other popular injectable fillers. They are used to treat fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, and frown lines. Cosmoderm and Cosmoplast rejuvenate and fill the face with lost collagen due to aging. Catpique fillers are also used, which are derived from hyaluronic acid. This filler lasts for about four to six months, and rarely has any side effects for its patients. Evolence is also injectable filler that is made from pigs. Using a Gylmatrix technology, it converts into pure collagen molecules.
Whichever method you choose, injectable fillers are a great way to achieve smoother and younger looking skin without surgery. If you’re ready to turn back time, come into our office to discuss your options for injectable fillers!
