Sometimes the little things get in the way of your self-confidence – little things like smile lines, crow’s feet or just a few too many wrinkles. But injectables like Botox®, Juvéderm®, Restylane®, Radiesse®, Dysport® and Sculptra™ can help reduce lines, wrinkles and creases.
While injectables are proven to be very safe, how they are administered is crucial to both their safety and effectiveness. Regardless of how simple or involved a procedure may seem, none are taken lightly at Charlotte Plastic Surgery. When it comes to your body and health, every decision is an important one.
“The surgeon or injection specialist chooses injectable fillers like an artist chooses a brush. From treating superficial wrinkles with reconstituted Juvederm Ultra XC (“airbrushing”) to sculpting with deep injections (Juvederm Voluma XC) and the multiple levels in between (Juvederm Ultra XC and Juvederm Ultra Plus XC), each filler has its own unique characteristics and uses. Utilization of advanced techniques and fillers with broad safety profiles ensure that people will notice – but not know that something was done.”
- Kevin L. Smith, M.D.
Some of the many benefits of injectables include:
- Minimal recovery time
- No restriction on normal activity
- No pre or post-operative care
Our highly skilled plastic surgeons and well-trained nurses are happy to talk with you about the many injectables and techniques we have available.
Some of the injectables that Charlotte Plastic Surgery endorses and administer are:
Botox®: Smooth out stubborn frown and forehead creases and crow’s feet by relaxing muscles that cause wrinkles. This natural, purified protein can replenish your appearance while being proven ultra-safe.
Dysport®: Dysport temporarily smoothes out undesirable lines between the brows, across the forehead or crow’s feet to restore a more youthful, less stressed appearance.
The Juvéderm™ Family (Juvederm Ultra XC, Juvederm Ultra Plus XC and Juvederm Voluma XC): Designed to reduce the wrinkles along the side of your nose and mouth and sculpt the cheeks, Juvéderm fillers contain a natural complex sugar – hyaluronic acid – which is one of the major components of the dermal connective tissue matrix. Voluma XC provides the ideal solution for elevating the cheeks.
Kybella™: Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved injectable drug that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness, commonly known as “double chin”. Many patients experience an improved chin profile in two to four treatment sessions spaced at least one month apart.
Radiesse®: Radiesse is an excellent choice for rejuvenating thin, aging hands.
Restylane®: Give your lips and face a natural beauty lift with this crystal-clear, non-animal biodegradable gel. Restylane produces an instantaneous, long-lasting enhancement and is safe and gentle on your skin.
Sculptra™: Improve shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds with subtle improvements that gradually give you a more youthful appearance. Sculptra is made from poly-L-lactic acid, which stimulates the growth of collagen that helps replace lost volume and can last up to two years.
