Everything you need to know about Injectables!
Cosmetic Fillers, often called injectables, or “liquid facelift”, offer many of the same benefits as a facelift without the down time. While Cosmetic fillers are not permanent, the results are immediate. They can be used in conjunction with other skin rejuvenation treatments.
Greenville Vein & Aesthetics offers four different types of temporary fillers. Three of the four are hyaluronic acid fillers. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that if found in the body. It is typically found in high concentrations in soft tissue and around the eyes, is also found in joint fluid, cartilage and skin tissue. Hyaluronic acid fillers are not derived from animal sources. We offer Juvederm, Perlane, and Restylane brands of hyaluronic acid fillers.
The fourth temporary filler offered by Greenville Vein & Aesthetics is calcium hydroxylapatite. Calcium hydroxylapatite is a calcium based microsphere that is suspended in a water based gel. Calcium hydroxylapatite is considered to be heavier filler that is naturally found in the body, usually within the bones. It is normally reserved for filling the deepest creases such as the nasolabial folds, marionette lines and frown lines. Calcium hydroxylapatite can also be used to enhance the cheeks and other facial contouring. We offer Radiesse brand filler.
The procedure for having cosmetic fillers injections is fairly simple. During a consultation, our physicians will evaluate your facial appearance, skin tone and examine the areas of the face that will be injected. He will then make a determination on the best cosmetic filler for your needs. The day of your procedure, our physicians will mark strategic points on the face, the injection sites will be cleaned with antibacterial agents, and a topical anesthetic is applied. The injections only take a few minutes and only seconds per injection site. After the injections marks are washed away, clients are offered an ice pack to reduce minor and temporary discomfort. Clients may apply makeup as long as pressure is not applied to injection areas.
