As we age, many changes occur that cause us to look older. Our skin loses its elasticity, and we begin to develop fine lines and wrinkles that are especially noticeable on our faces. In addition, the face tends to lose the fat tissue that creates its youthful plumpness, which leads to the formation of hollows and other contour irregularities.Schedule a Consultation
Injectables provide patients with a more youthful and rested appearance by improving the following conditions:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Deep lines on the forehead
- Shallow contours
- Recessed scars
- Thin lips
Injectable formulas are strategically injected into the targeted areas with a small needle. The injections only take a few minutes per site, and the entire treatment process is usually complete within 15 to 60 minutes.Schedule a Consultation
There are various injectables available, and the ideal type for you will depend on the correction needed. In general, there are two different types of injectables: neurotoxins and dermal fillers. During your initial consultation, Dr. Tseng will evaluate you to determine the best injectable(s) to meet your individual needs and achieve your goals.
JUVÉDERM® XC is an FDA approved gel filler made of hyaluronic acid that improves the appearance of moderate to severe facial wrinkles, lines, and folds around the nose and mouth and restores natural contours to the face. JUVÉDERM® XC effectively treats nasolabial folds (parentheses lines), vertical lip lines, lines at the corners of the mouth, and marionette lines. The results from JUVÉDERM® XC last up to a year after just one treatment.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is the first and only dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid that is FDA approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area for patients over 21 years of age. Results from JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC can last up to two years.
RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler
RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler is made of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in an aqueous gel that plump the skin to provide instant results. Once injected, the CaHA microspheres stimulate the natural production of collagen in the skin so that results last long after the injectable is absorbed by the body. RADIESSE® Volumizing Filler is the most common CaHA injectable formula and effectively improves the appearance of moderate to severe wrinkles and folds, including smile lines, marionette lines, lines at the corners of the mouth, hollows in the pre-jowl area, and chin wrinkles.
Restylane® is an injectable gel made of hyaluronic acid that restores volume, smooths fine lines and wrinkles, enhances facial contours, and creates fuller lips. Results from Restylane® are instant and generally last six months to a year, although some studies show that results can last up to 18 months.
Sculptra® Aesthetic is the first injectable that provides subtle, natural-looking results over time. Made from poly-L-lactic acid, this injectable works deep within the dermis to gradually replace lost collagen, improve shallow to deep nasolabial wrinkles and folds, and provide a more refined, youthful appearance. Results from Sculptra® Aesthetic can last more than two years.
