Injectable fillers are a safe, effective way to reach your aesthetic goals without invasive surgery. At Perich Aesthetics, we offer a range of cosmetic options in this category for clients who want to achieve a more youthful appearance, contoured profile, or fuller lips.
Botox was the first neurotoxin to receive FDA approval for cosmetic use and remains the most well-known injectable for this purpose. Injections of Botox and similar neurotoxins reduce signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing the facial muscles. Botox also has medical uses, including treatment for Blepharospasm (the original indication for Botox, which we use daily for our ophthalmology patients), jaw pain or TMJ, and chronic migraines.
Botox, along with comparable brands such as Xeomin and Jeuveau, can smooth furrows in the forehead, around the eyes, and in the lower part of the face, neck, and jawline. Immobilizing the muscles in the target area can produce a more relaxed, younger complexion. You’ll see the full results of this type of treatment within a few weeks, and your new look will last at least three to four months before you need a refresher.
Injectable dermal fillers are designed to restore the tissue volume that naturally depletes with aging. Various brands of dermal fillers are offered at Perich Aesthetics, depending on your desired results, with options to treat the undereye area, cheeks, lips, jawline, nose, chin, and even hands. These injectables are made from a gel fused with hyaluronic acid to smooth signs of aging and tighten sagging skin while promoting collagen production for skin renewal. If you’re looking for an immediate result, hyaluronic acid fillers and hydroxyapatite fillers are the ones to consider. If you’re looking for a gradual improvement over time, biostimulants such as Sculptra Aesthetic or Exosomes are the way to go.
Some fillers have a thin consistency appropriate to treat the delicate skin beneath the eyes and fine lines around the lips, including Belotero and Restylane Silk. Thicker gels such as Juvederm Voluma can enhance thin lips and boost the cheek volume that begins to diminish after age 30, leading to many of the most noticeable signs of age. Hydroxyapatite filler such as Radiesse can be injected deeper over bone to create a structural lift in areas where bony loss has occurred with age.
Most brands of cosmetic injectables produce results lasting six to 12 months. The body naturally and safely absorbs the material over time, so you’ll need another treatment if you want to replicate your initial results.
Injectable Biostimuators such as Sculptra Aesthetic and Exosomes are injected in the same location as many traditional fillers, but the results are not seen immediately like other fillers. Instead, they stimulate your body to produce its own collagen wherever injected, creating a subtle enhancement over time. It can be injected deep to create volume and lift, or very superficial to improve thinning skin. They can also be injected into the buttocks for increased volume or into areas of cellulite to smooth the skin surface texture. Biostimulators are usually injected at baseline, 3 months, 6 months, and yearly thereafter to maintain the desired results. We help our clients choose the best injectable product based on their areas of concern.
Before administering either neurotoxins or dermal fillers, we will numb the treatment area to minimize discomfort. Minor bruising and swelling may occur but usually resolves within a day or two. We also offer Alastin INhance post injection serum which has been found to accelerate recovery from post-injection bruising and swelling while improving the appearance of skin quality and texture by supporting the skin’s natural production of elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid. In clinical studies, 81% of patients that used INhance experienced less bruising after their treatment by day 2-3 post-injection.
The surgeons at Perich Aesthetics have been helping clients in New Port Richey and beyond look like the best versions of themselves for more than two decades. If you want to learn more about your noninvasive injectable options, reach out to us today, and schedule your aesthetic consultation.
