The FDA has approved the injectables, which gives cells and tissues their shape. These are used to fill in wrinkles and hollows in the skin.

Injectable treatments are becoming increasingly popular, but are they the best option for you? This is the information you will need. Information overload is real when you first start looking into facial fillers.

How can you tell if changing your appearance is a viable option? In other words, what choices do you have?

Even though many of your inquiries are best addressed during a no-cost consultation at our medical aesthetics center, answering some of the more common ones would help get you started.

Let’s get started!

Injectables for Your Face

If reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on your face is a priority, you have several options. Our team will assess your requirements to determine which of your goals is the most effective. The great thing about injectables is that they prevent new wrinkles from forming and eliminate existing ones.


Botox is a neurotoxin injection that temporarily stops nerve signals from reaching muscles. This makes muscles less able to contract, which removes frown lines. Crow’s feet and frown lines are two common areas on the face where they are used to temporarily improve appearance. The full effects of Botox injections can emerge anywhere from 24 to 72 hours after the injection. 


Dysport, like Botox, is an injection that relaxes muscles. Both are temporary injections that can be used anywhere, including the face, and last between three to five months. However, there are some distinctions between these two. Because Dysport injections have different concentrations, switching brands may mean you need fewer injections. 

Also, depending on where it is injected, Dysport injections can have positive or negative effects on a larger area after they’ve been given. Larger areas, such as those around your eyes, are better served by this effect.


If you’re worried about the pain of injections, you can get a Juvéderm injection, which contains biocompatible hyaluronic acid gel. It works well as a lip filler because it is effective in areas of the body with thin skin, such as the lips. This filler is an injectable gel and a synthetic alternative to hyaluronic acid. Lips will stay plump and hydrated, and collagen production will be boosted. After a single treatment with Juvéderm Ultra XC, your lips will look fuller for up to six to nine months.


Sculptra is an injection of a synthetic material that can be given in up to four sessions but is meant to only be done once. Collagen is the most common protein in the body. It gives cells and tissues their shape, and the FDA has approved this injection. This treatment could be helpful for up to two years. Sculptra injections slowly replace the collagen lost in the treated areas, making them look younger again. This is accomplished through a process that takes time.
