Injectables Q & A

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectables that reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. They also fill in areas of your face that have lost volume, such as hollowed cheeks and thinning lips. At Elite Wellness Weight Loss, you have access to some of the top dermal fillers on the market: Restylane® and Juvéderm®.

How do dermal fillers work?

Restylane and Juvéderm work by plumping and volumizing your skin with hyaluronic acid. In your youth, you produce plentiful amounts of this substance that hydrates and softens your skin. As you age, your production wanes and causes hollowed cheeks and thinning lips. Your skin also becomes dryer and thinner, leading to more apparent wrinkles.

Dermal fillers plump the skin and fill in hollowed areas to erase lines and wrinkles, leaving you with a more youthful look.

What issues can dermal fillers treat?

Restylane and Juvéderm are effective on a number of common aesthetic effects of an aging face, namely:

  • Smile lines
  • Smoker’s lines
  • Thinning lips
  • Hollowed cheeks
  • Crow’s feet
  • Marionette lines

Dermal fillers soften your look so you appear younger, without it being noticeable that you’ve had “work” done.

What are wrinkle reducers?

Wrinkle reducers soften the lines and creases that result from repeated expressions. Botox®, which is offered at Elite Wellness Weight Loss, is a purified toxin that temporarily halts the nerve signals that control the muscles that cause these lines and wrinkles. An injectable wrinkle reducer like Botox smooths wrinkles in your forehead, between your eyebrows, and around your eyes.

How long do the effects of cosmetic injectables last?

Dermal fillers such as Restylane and Juvéderm produce positive effects for 6 months to 2 years, depending on the type of filler used. Wrinkle reducers such as Botox® smooth your look for 3-4 months. You can be treated with both types of injectables on a regular schedule to maintain your youthful appearance. 

Do I need to schedule downtime following treatment with cosmetic injectables?

No, there’s no downtime needed with cosmetic injectables. You can leave and go on with all your daily activities right away.

Another great benefit of dermal fillers and wrinkle reducers is their ease of application. An appointment to have injectables applied lasts just 20-30 minutes. You may have a little redness or bruising at the injection sites, but this fades within a few days and can be covered easily with makeup.
