Injectables and Fillers
If wrinkles aren’t your thing, BOTOX® may be just what you need! BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription drug primarily used to treat fine lines and wrinkles of the upper face, specifically crow’s feet, frown lines, bunny lines, and forehead creases. This can temporarily enhance the complexion of the skin, creating a more youthful appearance. BOTOX® can also be used to treat a variety of other conditions including facial asymmetries, tension headaches, and excessive sweating. It acts by temporarily paralyzing the targeted muscle and typically lasts for 3-4 months.
St. Louis Facial Plastic Surgery offers a variety of injectables and tailors both the technique and the result to each and every patient. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and to discuss what options may be best for you!
Dermal fillers are easily becoming one of the most widely offered services for facial augmentation across the United States and abroad. They have introduced relatively safe, minimally invasive facial augmentation and rejuvenation that can be performed in an office setting at the time of consultation. New products are hitting the market at an all-time high.
The large variety of fillers is a welcome addition to the surgeon’s repertoire, however from a patient standpoint can be largely confusing. From Juvederm®, Restylane® or Radiesse® there is a significant variation from filler to filler. What is important to understand is that different fillers are better in certain situations. For instance, a softer, more pliable filler is desirable for lip augmentation, whereas a patient with heavy cheeks and deep nasolabial folds needs a firmer filler that is able to provide more lift.
