What Are My Facial Injectable Options And How Do They Work?

BOTOX®

BOTOX® remains the most popular option. The active ingredient in BOTOX® is a sterile form of the botulinum toxin. The ingredient has no bacteria and is quite safe. BOTOX® can target: 

Dr. Crispin will inject BOTOX® into the part of your face that you want to improve. BOTOX® blocks the nerves in your face from sending electrical signals to your muscles. This means that the muscles will not be able to contract, an action responsible for the formation of wrinkles.

Soon, your facial muscles will relax and soften, smoothing out those unsightly wrinkles and creases. You will see a new, healthy, youthful appearance shortly after your BOTOX® appointment.

The entire procedure takes less than 15 minutes, and there is no recovery time, as BOTOX® is not a surgical procedure. You should expect the results from your BOTOX® procedure to last 3 to 4 months, at which point you can return to Dr. Crispin for another injection to maintain your rejuvenated appearance.

Injectable HA Fillers

Some of the most well-tolerated nonsurgical facial rejuvenation treatments. Risks are incredibly rare due to the biocompatibility of hyaluronic acid HA, but some redness or tenderness around the injection site may occur in the first few days following treatment.

Your skin contains hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally hydrating substance that helps keep your skin looking soft and youthful. As you age, your natural supply of HA begins to diminish, resulting in fine lines and deeper wrinkles.

When injected into the skin, Injectable HA Fillers replace lost HA, restoring hydration and eliminating wrinkles. Due to the patented smooth-gel solution, injectable HA fillers can continue replenishing lost HA for upwards of 12 months, producing a softer, more attractive, and youthfully vibrant appearance.

During your initial cosmetic surgery consultation, Dr. Crispin will be happy to discuss this with you in more detail and to answer any specific questions about injectable HA fillers and other options that you may have.
