AESTHETIC INJECTABLES
A non-surgical approach for restoring lost volume and relaxing facial wrinkles

With age, we lose muscle, fat and bone in our faces - often resulting in a sunken, aged and tired appearance. Aesthetic injectables are a safe and effective approach for a refreshed and natural looking appearance without surgery. While Dysport® and Botox® are used to relax facial muscles, dermal fillers such as Restylane®, Restylane Lyft®, Juvéderm®, and Sculptra® are used to restore lost volume and lift specific facial features. These treatments are ideal if you are looking to smooth away frown lines and wrinkles with little or no downtime.

CAN YOU COMBINE AESTHETIC INJECTABLES?
Combining Aesthetic Injectables such as Dysport with Restylane, is especially effective for treating and restoring lost volume to specific areas such as cheeks, eyes and the chin. This technique is also excellent for smoothing frown lines, forehead lines, crows-feet and lifting eyebrows.

WHAT IS THE TREATMENT LIKE?
Dysport and Botox are precisely injected beneath the surface of the skin into the root cause of the wrinkles. Dermal fillers such as Restylane®, Restylane Lyft®, Juvéderm®, and Sculptra® are injected into specific facial features to lift and smooth away wrinkles and folds. No anesthesia is required, although if you are extremely sensitive, an anesthetic cream or an ice pack may be applied prior to your treatment. Discomfort is minimal and there is little to no downtime.

HOW LONG WILL THE RESULTS LAST?
Aesthetic Injectables are highly customizable, making the duration of the results individual to each patient. Treatments such as Dysport and Botox typically last up to 4 months and dermal fillers can last anywhere from months to 2 years.

ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
Soreness, mild bruising, headache and temporary eyelid droop have been reported nationally. At SkinCare Physicians & Surgeons, only highly experienced board-certified physicians and certified nurse practitioners administer Aesthetic Injectables. Side effects are rare.
