Comparing the Best Injectable Treatment and Filler

If you are beginning to see the signs of aging in your face, it might be time to explore the many injectables and filler treatments we provide. These treatments are typically minimally noninvasive and do not require any surgical procedures. Our top injectables and fillers are quick and easy to receive and will have you back to your routine within 30 minutes. Let us take a look at the best injectable treatment and fillers for you:

Injectable Treatment

Wrinkles, fine lines, and crow’s feet are all primarily caused by the muscles in your face contracting. Injectable treatments work by temporarily stopping these muscles from contracting and letting the wrinkles on your face relax and become unnoticeable. You may have heard of the top injectable treatment called Botox. This injectable uses botulinum toxin type A to relax the facial muscles and is particularly effective at relaxing the lines along your forehead and between your eyes. Most Botox results last around 3 to 6 months, with occasional touch-ups needed after that. Another popular injectable that may not be quiet as known as Botox is Xeomin. This injectable does not last as long as Botox (usually around 3 months) but is effective if your body fights off the proteins that Botox is composed of. Either way, each treatment only takes around 15 to 30 minutes to complete.

Dermal Filler

Similar to injectables, there is a variety of dermal fillers currently available on the market. While there are a few that can target different areas being treated, certain names like Restylane and Juvederm lead in terms of quality. These brands use hyaluronic acid as the primary ingredient. Dermal fillers can be used to treat wrinkles, fill in sunken cheeks, and be applied under the eyes.

The area you choose to treat can help determine what filler to pick for best results. Restylane is a better choice for filling in the cheeks due to its denser molecular structure giving a plumper appearance. Regardless, Restylane and Juvederm Ultra Plus both provide incredible results for approximately 6 months to a year. Alternative brands that do not use hyaluronic acid such as hydroxlapatite and poly-L-lactic acid claim to last longer, but do not show that in the results. These alternative treatments are also known to cause additional complications such as bumps and swelling following the procedure.
