Injectable wrinkle treatments are designed to smooth facial lines and wrinkles for a rejuvenated appearance. If you have crow’s feet, frown lines, or other facial wrinkles, injectables may give you the results you want without the need for surgery. Results can last from several months to a year or more, depending on the type of injectable you choose, and treatments can usually be administered in an hour or less. At our practice in El Paso, Texas, we offer BOTOX® Cosmetic, VolumaXC®, Restylane®, and other injectable treatments that require no downtime and produce outstanding results.
One of the most popular injectable treatments offered at El Paso Cosmetic Surgery is BOTOX® Cosmetic. A neurotoxin produced by a specific bacterium that paralyzes muscles, BOTOX® Cosmetic has proven itself largely useful for the treatment of frown lines, forehead furrows, crow’s feet, and wrinkles in the lower face and the neck. Results of a single BOTOX® injection last approximately four to six months, and injections can be repeated every six months to maintain the effect.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is diluted and injected into targeted areas of the face to relax the muscles that are responsible for the formation of wrinkles. The procedure is fast and easy and requires no downtime. To date, no systemic complications have been associated with BOTOX® Cosmetic. Furthermore, most patients of our El Paso practice have reported being very pleased with the results of their BOTOX® injections.
Juvéderm™Ultra and Ultra Plus
Juvéderm™ is a natural collagen filler that reduces the appearance of skin folds and wrinkles around the mouth and eyes, or in the forehead area. Unlike BOTOX® Cosmetic, which paralyzes the muscles, Juvéderm™ is injected into facial lines and folds to add fullness and smooth out the skin. It can also be used to create natural-looking, full lips. Results can last up to six months, and treatment is most effective if injections of Juvéderm™ are re-administered before the effects of the previous treatment have worn off.
VolumaXC® is a dermal filler that is used to correct age-related volume loss in the midface. You will see a difference on the day of your treatment, and results last for up to two years or longer for many patients. What truly distinguishes VoumaXC® is that it stimulates your body to create new collagen, giving you extremely natural-looking results.
At El Paso Cosmetic Surgery, we also use fat injections as a soft tissue filler to treat facial wrinkles and enhance the lips, and as a supplement for many surgical procedures including face lift.
Body fat makes an excellent soft tissue filler for several reasons.
- Body fat is natural and non-allergenic.
- The effects of body fat injections last from several months to indefinitely.
- There is little or no recovery period or downtime after treatment.
Usually performed in an office setting, fat injections can be used:
- To fill in deep wrinkles like frown lines and nasolabial folds
- To give fullness to augment lips
- As a rejuvenation tool that replaces age-induced face tissue loss.
Treatment involves obtaining fat through the use of liposuction from one part of the body, such as the abdomen, buttocks, or thighs, and injecting it in another. The extracted fat is washed, the blood is separated from the fat, and the fat is placed in a syringe and injected into the targeted area.
Two or three sessions of fat injection can usually accomplish the desired fullness, and since about 50 percent of the fat remains after each session, results are long lasting.
