Which Injectable Is Right for Me?Authored by: Dr. Bruce Katz
Injectables are an effective way to reverse the signs of aging and restore a more youthful appearance. At JUVA Skin & Laser Center, we offer a wide range of injectable treatments to address your unique needs and goals. These minimally invasive, nonsurgical solutions provide beautiful, natural looking results with no downtime.
The right injectable for you will depend on the aesthetic concerns you’d like to address. Our injectors have extensive training and experience performing these treatments, and they will recommend an individualized treatment plan to achieve your desired outcome.
Smoothing Wrinkles around the Eyes and Forehead Region
If your primary concern is addressing the signs of aging in the upper portion of your face, BOTOX® Cosmetic may be the right solution for you. BOTOX® Cosmetic temporarily blocks the nerve signals to your facial muscles, preventing them from contracting. As a result, the fine lines and wrinkles caused by these facial muscle contractions will become smoother, leaving you with a more youthful appearance.
Our doctors often recommend BOTOX® Cosmetic to address the following concerns:
- Crow’s feet (fine lines around the eyes)
- Frown lines
- Forehead lines
In addition to BOTOX® Cosmetic, we offer the following alternative injectables which can address these concerns just as effectively:
Wrinkles in the Lower Portion of the Face (Nasolabial Folds and Marionette Lines)
Nasolabial folds, often referred to as “laugh lines,” are wrinkles which extend from your nose to the corners of your mouth. Marionette lines are vertical wrinkles that extend from the corners of your mouth down to your chin. Both of these signs of aging are very common, and also easily addressed using dermal fillers.
In general, fillers are the most effective solution to address these types of lines. Fillers can be injected into nasolabial folds and marionette lines, restoring a smooth, youthful complexion. At JUVA Skin & Laser, we offer a wide variety of fillers, allowing us to choose the right option to address your unique needs. These solutions include:
- Juvederm XC
- Juvederm Voluma XC
Hollow Eyes and Deep Tear Troughs
Hollow eyes and deep tear troughs can give you a tired appearance that makes you look older than you are. Dermal fillers can be used to restore volume in these areas, resulting in a smoother, more youthful appearance. Instead of looking tired, you will look vibrant and refreshed.
We recommend Restylane and Versa to treat these areas. Restylane is also made from hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in your skin. Results are long lasting and natural looking.
As you age, you lose volume in the central portion of your face. This can result in sunken cheeks. Our doctors can use dermal fillers to restore volume to this region of your face, plumping up your cheeks for a more youthful appearance.
There are a variety of fillers which can effectively improve the appearance of sunken cheeks, including:
Plump, luscious lips are a desirable trait. If you would like to improve the appearance of thin lips, we offer several dermal fillers which can help achieve your goals. Belotero, Restylane Silk and Volbella are our preferred option to improve the appearance of thin lips. However, we can also achieve excellent results using Restylane or Juvederm Volbella XC.
