While aging is a process everyone goes through, injectables are a remedy everyone should know about. You can do something about aging, and we can help. We provide a variety of injectable products to correct the signs of aging or enhance the appearance of thin lips. These injectables treat two types of wrinkles: those caused by muscle contractions and those caused by loss of facial volume.
These non-surgical treatments can correct a host of issues from severe wrinkles to sagging jowls and hollowed areas. They can also provide lip augmentation for fuller, poutier lips. Injectables and fillers in Richmond are a nonsurgical way to partake in cosmetic procedures without the cost, commitment, and recovery required with more invasive procedures. You can ease the aging process, correct facial asymmetry, and reduce wrinkles without a single stitch.
Injectables, Fillers, and What They Can Do
Two main types of injectables and fillers available for use in Richmond are neuromodulators and dermal fillers. Both types of injectables provide substantial improvements with wrinkle reduction, while dermal fillers are also effective for facial sculpting and replenishing facial volume loss. Many patients maximize their results by utilizing both injectables. Combining treatments delivers uniquely personalized outcomes for people with all types of cosmetic needs.
Neuromodulators like Botox, Dysport, and Jeuveau
Neuromodulators are an injectable medication that reduces facial wrinkles caused by muscle contractions. They work by relaxing the muscles and preventing them from being activated. The most well-known neuromodulator is Botox, but Jeuveau and Dysport are also widely used. Each brand has its benefits and can be chosen based on the patient’s individual concerns and goals. Board-certified nurse practitioner and skilled injector, Shelly Montante, can discuss the differences between the brands during a consultation and help you determine which is the best fit for you.
Dermal fillers are gel-like substances injected under the skin to correct a variety of aesthetic concerns. They are versatile products that offer benefits like wrinkle reduction, facial sculpting, volume loss correction, and lip enhancements. There are several brands, with many brands having multiple variations of their product. The numerous brands and their variations allow for tailored plans to treat an assortment of concerns.
We use a range of fillers with different formulations and thicknesses to provide each patient with a wide array of options. We may recommend Juvederm, Restalyne, or RHA to enhance the face or hands, Sculptra to treat the face and body, or Renuva for the face, neck, upper chest, hands, and body.
Procedure, Recovery, and Aftercare
Many Richmond residents choose injectables and dermal fillers because they are quick and easy with minimal recovery time. The procedure is usually performed in the office during a single visit, and patients are free to return to regular activities directly following their appointment. It is usually advisable to limit vigorous activities for 24 to 48 hours after dermal fillers.
The procedure for neuromodulators causes minimal pain, with many patients describing it as a pinch. Dermal fillers can be a bit more uncomfortable, but a topical lidocaine can be applied to before injections to numb the area. Because bruising and swelling are usually present for a few days to a week after dermal fillers, patients are encouraged to receive fillers a week or two before any notable engagements.
