What are my injectable options?
Smiling, frowning, squinting and chewing, any facial movement, can create one of the most common signs of aging: wrinkles can create a tired, or sometimes angry appearance to your face even if you are in the best or freshest of moods.
Lines, for the men and women of Baltimore, Maryland, can form in many areas of the face. These lines are often the result of facial muscles interacting with sun-damaged skin. For patients looking to erase lines, Dysport offers a solution.
Lines and wrinkles can make us appear old, tired, or even sad or angry. Juvederm is a non-surgical filler that has significant benefits. This product is the only FDA-approved hyaluronic acid filler that lasts and lasts – for a year or longer in most patients.
Injectable fillers, such as Restylane® can add volume and fullness to skin, correcting those undesired facial wrinkles and folds. For patients over the age of 21, Restylane can also be used to plump lips.
Radiesse® Volumizing Filler is made of tiny calcium-based microspheres which are suspended in a natural, water-based gel. Over time, your body absorbs these tiny microspheres and gel leaving behind only your own natural collagen.
Sculptra is the first facial injectable giving you subtle results over time. By replacing lost collagen, it gives you a more natural-looking appearance. A full treatment of Sculptra, an average of three injection sessions over a few months, can last more than two years
Kybella is one of the new generation of cosmetic treatments for facial rejuvenation. Without surgery! The product is a prescription formula injectable that works to reduce the volume of “submental fullness” (double chin). Both men and women often develop excess fat under the chin, due to weight gain, genetics, or aging.
