Botox and Fillers

What are fillers?

Sun exposure, aging, muscle movement, and genetics can all contribute to flushed skin appearance. Injectable fillers are cosmetic treatments containing various ingredients that are specially designed to improve the appearance of skin by decreasing wrinkles, creases, and sagging caused by tissue and fat loss.

What fillers are available?

Dr. Mick commonly uses different injectables for varying regions of the face, including the lips and eyes. He injects facial fillers into your skin through small injection sites.

Three different types of fillers are available: temporary, semi-temporary, and lasting. Hyaluronic-acid-based fillers are temporary, and others can offer longer-lasting results. You can choose from many types of injectables at Elysium SurgiSpa:

Botox®

Botox®is an injectable derived from botulinum toxin type A, which temporarily paralyzes your affected muscles to decrease the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

Restylane

Restylane injectable fillers have a specific formulation of hyaluronic acid that’s effective for a range of concerns, including restoring volume to the facial features and the backs of your hands.

Radiesse

Radiesse is an injectable hydrogel containing tiny particles of calcium hydroxylapatite — a substance that’s naturally in human teeth and bones. Radiesse filler enhances your volume and promotes natural collagen production to boost appearance over time. The Radiesse material is stable and it can’t be easily broken down by your body, making it a long-lasting solution.

Juvederm®

Juvederm®is also derived from hyaluronic acid. There are different types of Juvederm®for different needs, but generally, Juvederm®is especially beneficial for increasing volume in the cheeks.

Belotero Balance®

Belotero Balance® is also made of hyaluronic acid and can be used to erase wrinkles and boost skin hydration.

Xeomin

Xeomin is an FDA Approved, Clinically proven injectable treatment used to relieve and relax moderate to severe wrinkles or rhytide lines in the face. Xeomin is ideal for dynamic wrinkles, the type of wrinkles that become etched into the skin due to aging and sun damage. Learn More

What can injectable fillers treat?

Injectable procedures use a variety of treatment strategies to approach a multitude of facial conditions. Depending on the product, injectables can:

  • Treat submental fullness (fat stores beneath the chin)
  • Reduce active wrinkles that are the result of muscles used for facial expressions
  • Reduce passive wrinkles caused by a loss of support tissue and skin elasticity
  • Improve lost facial fullness due to a natural deterioration of collagen over time
  • Plump lips
  • Reconstruct facial contour deformities
  • Enhance the appearance of recessed scarring
  • Decrease the lower lid shadow

Most injectable procedures usually take around 10-20 minutes to complete, and there’s typically no downtime.

How do injectables treat fat under the chin?

A double chin often stores fat that you can’t seem to remedy through the traditional methods of exercise and diet.

Kybella® is an injectable cosmetic treatment that has deoxycholic acid as an active ingredient. This acid occurs naturally in the body as an agent for the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the double chin area, Kybella effectively reduces fat cells and your body decreases them over time. Your chin has a smoother profile and the unwanted fat cells are erased.
