Injectables are non-invasive skin treatments that fill in facial wrinkles, tighten skin, or get rid of fat, to help patients achieve the results they desire. Many patients prefer injectable treatments as opposed to other anti-aging treatments because they offer remarkable results with little to no recovery time, allowing patients to return to their daily activities as soon as possible.
Your Injectable Options
Botox injections are one of the most often requested cosmetic procedures in the United States. Studies have discovered that Botox injections can reduce wrinkles and fine lines by as much as 80 percent and the results can last for three to five months. Prior to the procedure, Dr. Gardner will carefully evaluate facial structure to determine the ideal injection sites. Then, he will gently administer Botox to help patients lessen frown lines, crows' feet and other wrinkles. After the Botox has been administered, patients are free to continue their daily activities with their newly rejuvenated appearances.
PRP Therapy or plasma injections are excellent for the rejuvenation of your skin. When Dr. Gardner injects it into the necessary areas, its high concentration of platelets will stimulate and promote the production of new collagen. New collagen means that your skin will be revitalized which in turn leads to firm youthful skin. As a result, PRP significantly reduces wrinkles and other imperfections.
Fat Transfers are safe and long lasting. They are an excellent non-invasive alternative for gaining improved facial appearance and aesthetics. The purpose of fat transfers is to fill in wrinkles and creased areas of the face. Common areas for fat transfer include the hands, face, skin depressions or divots, and the breasts or buttocks.
Kybella is designed for injection into a “double chin”. Kybella is a synthetic form of an already naturally occurring substance in our bodies that breaks down and absorbs fat. When injected into the treatment area, Kybella begins to wipe out fat cells. Once it has destroyed those fat cells, they can no longer store fat and repeated treatments are typically unnecessary.
Dr. Gardner is proud to incorporate many injectable options into his practice. Each injectable offers patients remarkable results in treating their unique concerns. Depending on the patient's initial conditions and aesthetic goals, Dr. Paul Gardner will select the filler most appropriate to yield ideal results.
Radiesse is one of the most successful and sought-after treatments for deep wrinkles. Studies have shown that Radiesse is effective at lessening the appearance of deep wrinkles by as much at 80% when properly administered. Patients who have deep frown lines, crows’ feet, or nasolabial folds are often good candidates for Radiesse to benefit their overall facial contours for up to two years.
Restylane is used to add volume and fullness to the skin as well as treating moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. Restylane can also be used as a lip augmentation for patients aged over 21. This injectable filler has proven to be effective at treating light wrinkles such as laugh lines and smoker’s lines. This dermal filler was developed to be used on deep to middling wrinkles and folds.
Juvederm is designed to add volume to sunken areas of the face, improve and plump facial contours, and fill in wrinkles. Juvederm can be utilized in a few different area such as the face, neck, and even the hands. Juvederm comes with several options as well, such as Juvederm Ultra CX which can restore fullness to the cheeks and hands. Juvederm Ultra Plus XC has similar applications as Ultra CX, but it is manufactured with an anesthetic to minimize discomfort.
Belotero is manufactured to smooth out and fill in moderate to severe nasolabial folds, or the creases that run from the nose to the corners of the mouth. The difference between Belotero and other similar dermal fillers is that it is specifically designed to treat moderate to severe lines and wrinkles around the lips.
