Injectable fillers and medications are a quick and effective way to treat signs of aging such as wrinkles and facial volume loss. Understanding what type of injectable treatment is appropriate for each patient requires a careful understanding of our patient’s individual anatomy and tendencies to develop volume deficiencies and wrinkles. At Radiant Med Spa we offer a variety of injectables to suit our patients needs.
Static wrinkles are typically visible when our face is in its normal resting position, while dynamic wrinkles become visible when facial expressions are made. A common example of dynamic lines includes crow’s feet, or forehead wrinkles. Over time, dynamic wrinkles can indeed become static wrinkles that are visible in the face’s natural, resting position, so it is best to treat early as a preventative measure. These lines can be usually be managed with wrinkle relaxers such as Xeomin® and Dysport®. However when lines become too deep to treat with wrinkle relaxers alone filler may be considered.
Dermal filler is a gel injectable that is ideal for correcting moderate to severe wrinkles of the face such as nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and lip lines. Filler is also used to restore volume lost over time in areas such as the cheeks, chin, and lips.
A common misconception regarding outcomes in the use of fillers and BOTOX® for the treatment of skin lines and wrinkles is that they might provide a cure-all for age-related skin changes or sun-damaged skin, for this reason we also offer medical grade, laser treatments and microneedling.
