Cosmetic Injections and Injectables – Birmingham
While facial plastic surgery is an effective way to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fight the signs of aging, many patients would like to avoid surgery altogether. That is why we’re happy to offer dermal fillers and cosmetic injections at our Birmingham area practice. Cosmetic injectables provide patients with remarkable results that will make them look younger, more rejuvenated, and more refreshed.
BOTOX® is a cosmetic injection that is derived from botulinum toxin type A. The end solution is extremely diluted, safe for use on humans, and approved by the Food and Drug Administration. BOTOX® injections work differently from dermal fillers. Rather than enhance the volume in the injection site, BOTOX® injections will stop muscle contractions in the treatment area. This will reduce the formation and appearance of wrinkles and lines in those areas.
Restylane® is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler that’s excellent for eliminating deep lines and wrinkles around the face. It’s also effective for enhancing the fullness and overall appearance of the lips. Learn more about Restylane® injections.
Collagen injections and collagen-based injections (such as Zyderm®, Zyplast®, CosmoDerm™, and CosmoPlast™) are excellent options for enhancing the fullness of the lips and dealing with laugh lines, crow’s feet, furrows, and major wrinkles. Learn more about collagen injections.
Radiesse™ is a dermal filler that is often used for aesthetic issues involving smile lines, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines. The solution itself consists of microspheres suspended in a special gel. The microspheres are comprised of calcium hydroxlapatite, which occurs naturally in the human body. The Radiesse™ first acts as a dermal filler for the first few months. Then, the microspheres help stimulate natural collagen production in the injection site, which helps extend the results of the initial Radiesse™ injection.
Sculptra® is a dermal filler that is poly-L-lactic-acid-based, a synthetic substance that helps replace collagen in the injection site. After a few weeks, the poly-L-lactic-acid will then promote the production of new collagen in the injection site. Sculptra® is ideal for major facial wrinkles as well as lost volume in various areas of the face. Many people who suffer from facial lipoatrophy (a sort of wasting of the facial fat common to people with HIV or AIDS) can benefit from the results of Sculptra® treatment.
