Injectables & Filler
Non-invasive treatments like injectables and fillers are a great way to rejuvenate your skin and combat signs of aging. Unlike surgical solutions, these alternatives are relatively pain-free and you can go about your day-to-day life after treatment. Learn more about which option is best for you and your goals!
What is the Difference Between Injectables and Fillers?
While both are used to treat the face, they serve two distinct purposes. Injectables are best for patients looking to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles. They work by temporarily reducing muscle activity to prevent wrinkles caused by muscle contractions, such as frowning or squinting.
Fillers, on the other hand, are used to correct volume loss in the face. As we age, we lose fat in our face which can result in sunken cheeks and under eyes. It can also cause hollow temples in the cheeks and jaw area. Dermal fillers help correct these areas to achieve a more youthful look.
What Injectable Options are Available at Infinite Vitality?
- Botox: Botox is a relatively popular treatment that most people have heard of. The actual solution injected is known as a botulinum toxin that can be used to temporarily reduce muscle movement, and it has been used for decades to treat wrinkles.
- Daxxify: This injectable is relatively new, but it has been proven to be effective and longer lasting than Botox. Unlike Botox, it contains short chains of amino acids known as peptides.
The Benefits of Injectables
One of the reasons that so many people prefer injectables over plastic surgery is that the process is less invasive. It can be done quickly in our office, and you can go about your normal routine after treatment without having to worry about downtime and recovery. You also don’t have to worry about medications and other complications involved with surgery.
While the results require more treatment to maintain results, injectables are also a more affordable alternative. Most plastic surgery is not covered by health insurance, so patients could spend thousands of dollars out of pocket to achieve similar results.
Our patients appreciate the fact that the results are ultimately temporary. If you decide you aren’t happy with the final results, you will eventually regain muscle movement as long as you don’t continue to get injections.
What Fillers Are Available at Infinite Vitality?
When it comes to dermal fillers, Infinite Vitality exclusively offers treatments from the RHA Collection. We have carefully selected these for their safe and natural-looking results. When compared to other alternatives, they have been formulated to resemble natural hyaluronic acid (HA) found in skin.
That’s not all!
The RHA Collection is more dynamic than its competitors. The filler can easily adapt to the movements that your face makes so that you will look natural whether at rest or in motion.
What is RHA?
The RHA Collection of dermal fillers is currently the only formula approved by the FDA to treat dynamic facial wrinkles or folds that develop through natural facial expressions. RHA stands for Resilient Hyaluronic Acid, which is a special formula of HA that most closely resembles the body’s natural HA.
The body naturally produces HA, which is a substance that can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water. However, the production of this key substance found in the skin usually wanes as people age. When HA is added back into the skin through dermal fillers, this can make the skin look both hydrated and rejuvenated. In fact, RHA is the greatest for filling in any facial contours, folds, or wrinkles.
What Does RHA Filler Treatment Look Like?
All of our treatments begin with a consultation. At this appointment, you can share your aesthetic goals and ask about the risks and side effects. We may have you make different faces to assess for optimal placement, and we will work with you to create a treatment plan.
Once it is time for the actual treatment to begin, the process is very straightforward. On average, you can expect for the treatment to take between 30 minutes to an hour to:
Though there is no downtime with these procedures, it is normal to experience bruising or swelling at the sight of the injection. This should resolve and final results should appear in one to two weeks.
