What Are Botox®/Injectable Fillers?
Injectable fillers are used to smooth the skin, give it a firm texture and a fresh look and feel. When compared with invasive procedures such as surgical facelifts, injectable fillers have an easier and quicker recovery process.
The natural, biological components of our skin are collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid, which are responsible for skin support, elasticity, shape, and volume. Injecting these substances directly into the skin results in younger and more beautiful looking skin in the least invasive manner. Cosmetic treatments that employ the use of injectable fillers are among the most sought after cosmetic procedures. Injectables fillers accentuate and highlight parts of the facial profile and address the problems of sunken lips and cheeks, wrinkles, age lines and crow’s feet.
