Injectables as an alternative

As we age, our skin begins to lose elasticity and collagen. This can lead to wrinkles and sagging skin that takes away from our youthful appearance. One way to enhance the skin’s appearance and look years younger is through the use of dermal fillers. Fillers, like RestylaneJuvéderm, Voluma, and Radiesse have many benefits and uses.

Juvederm Before and After

Injectable dermal filler procedures are an anti-aging, non-invasive and non-surgical, procedure that can produce a younger appearance, with instant results. Dermal fillers such as Voluma and Restylane Lyft can lift as they add volume, especially to the cheek area. Dermal fillers not only reduce fine lines and wrinkles but also plump up the skin to improve skin texture and skin tone.

Our lip volume shrinks over time and a “thin” lip is an aging lip. Lip fillers can produce a very natural and attractive look. Dr. McLaren specializes in lip fillers and guarantees you will look so natural that “only your Doctor knows for sure….

Injectables can also reduce the lines that can appear between your eyebrows. These are referred to as glabellar lines. These lines extend upward toward the forehead. As we age, they become more prominent and can give an “angry” look. Injectables can help to ease the harsh look these lines can form and leave you looking more relaxed and rejuvenated.

Injectable dermal fillers like Voluma or Radiesse can produce an eyebrow lift, but without the need for surgery. While injectables are known to be used for facial lines and wrinkles, they can be used in other areas as well, including neck wrinkles and hand rejuvenation.

Injectable dermal fillers are very popular because there are minimal side effects, instant results and they can be done on a lunch hour. Many people opt for injectable procedures because they are less expensive than surgical procedures and less time consuming.

If you want to plump and lift your cheeks, improve the appearance of forehead lines or the frown lines between your eyebrows, laugh lines, marionette lines, smoker or perioral lines or wrinkles on the neck, injectables may be the answer you are looking for.
