Sunlight, elements, and age can make your skin less elastic over time, contributing to wrinkles, smile and laugh lines, and frown lines between the eyebrows. Products like JUVÉDERM®, a gel filler, and BOTOX® Cosmetic, an injectable designed to block nerve impulses that contribute to wrinkles, can reduce minor skin imperfections and contribute to a more youthful appearance. Additionally, dermal fillers are effective for plumping up thinned lips and adding volume. The results of injectables can last anywhere from a few months to a year, depending on the type that you choose.
Can I benefit from injectables?
To find out if you are a good candidate for injectables, schedule a time to talk with one of our Orange County surgeons. There are several different types of injectables and fillers, and sharing with your doctor what look you want to achieve will help him or her identify which product will be best for you.
What can I expect after the procedure?
After the injection, you might experience very brief discomfort. Any localized pain or redness will go away quickly. Most patients are ready to resume normal, daily activities immediately following the procedure and without needing any pain management.
