Injectables are aesthetic procedures that rejuvenate the appearance of your skin by injecting serums directly into your skin. Injectables reduce signs of aging such as wrinkles, fine lines, and volume loss.
Botox and Dysport are injectable treatments derived from the botulinum neurotoxin. These serums are FDA-approved to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on your forehead, between your eyebrows, and around your eyes.
Botox and Dysport work by temporarily paralyzing your small facial muscles that pull your skin into folds when you smile or frown. When your facial muscles are still, the skin covering them also relaxes, and your wrinkles and fine lines become smooth and disappear.
Restylane is a popular family of dermal fillers made from hyaluronic acid. At Northeastern Plastic Surgery, Dr. Fodero offers many Restylane fillers, including:
The different Restylane products are designed to fill in wrinkles, folds, and volume loss on different parts of your face. For example, Restylane Silk is formulated to fill in and plump your lips and lines around your mouth, while Restylane Lyft is designed to restore the contour of your cheeks. Dr. Fodero can provide advice on the best dermal filler products to enhance your appearance.
Sculptra is another brand of dermal fillers made from collagen. It’s formulated specifically to rejuvenate the skin around your mouth and nose. Dr. Fodero uses it to plump your smile lines, marionette lines, and wrinkles on your chin.
Your injectable cosmetic appointment can take 30-60 minutes depending on the number of injections you need.If you’re nervous about needles or have sensitive skin, you can request a topical numbing cream to ensure your comfort throughout your appointment.
Then, using a fine needle, Dr. Fodero makes the injections. If you have dermal filler injections, he may stop occasionally to check his progress or massage the filler into place.
