When you smile, laugh, frown, or look puzzled, you contract the muscles of your face. Over time, these contractions produce permanent furrows and deep wrinkles in the skin, especially around the eyes and mouth, between the eyebrows, and on the forehead. These lines can make you look older, sad, angry or tired.
Injectable fillers can not only prevent you from deepening these lines during natural facial movements, they can also erase these marks of aging, leaving you looking younger and refreshed.
Injectable products, fillers such as JUVÉDERM® and Restylane®, and BOTOX® Cosmetic, help reduce certain facial creases. Injectables, such as JUVÉDERM®, Restylane® and BOTOX® Cosmetic are FDA-approved and safe for use by most patients. Many of the fillers are made from substances found naturally in the body, or synthetically made to mimic natural substances or stimulate collagen production. These fillers are injected directly into the skin of the targeted area to restore volume and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. At our Salem practice, we offer patients several different injectable filler options in order to provide the best possible results for their individual needs.
