Fillers and Injectables Q & A
What fillers and injectables work for frown lines?
For frown lines, neuromodulators like Botox® and Dysport® are an extremely effective solution. Neuromodulators reduce movement in the facial muscles that cause lines and wrinkles to minimize for up to four months.
Botox is FDA-approved to minimize crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead lines. Dysport treats frown lines. The two formulas are virtually identical, but some patients have better results with one or the other. Your specialist at the office of Anthony N. Dardano, DO, FACS, can recommend the right neuromodulator for you.
What fillers and injectables work for smile lines and facial folds?
The office of Anthony N. Dardano, DO, FACS, offers several excellent options for smile lines and facial folds from age-related volume loss. Restylane® and Juvéderm®, both hyaluronic acid fillers that duplicate the human body’s natural hyaluronic acid, instantly fill nasolabial folds (smile lines) framing your nose and mouth area or other facial folds for around 12-18 months. Juvéderm and Restylane also have formulas ideal for use in the lips, cheeks, and other parts of your face.
Sculptra® is another great filler for smile lines. It’s made from poly-L-lactic acid, which works over time to help you regrow lost collagen. Most patients get a series of Sculptra injections (three injections over around 3-4 months on average). Over that time, you notice a gradual improvement in your smile lines or facial folds. Sculptra can last up to two years.
Sculptra is also the ideal filler for a noninvasive butt lift. It can give you a perkier, tighter, and firmer butt, with no incisions at all.
What can I do about midface volume loss?
If your cheeks sag, appear hollow, or otherwise make you look older than you’d like, Juvéderm Voluma® is the leading answer among injectables today. Juvéderm Voluma is specially made for cheek augmentation, so it’s an excellent solution when you need midface lift and contour. Juvéderm Voluma lasts for up to two years.
Is there an injectable to melt my double chin away?
Yes, Kybella® is the only injectable that’s FDA-approved to treat the submental area, aka double chin fat. Kybella contains an active ingredient called deoxycholic acid, which destroys the fat cells. A series of Kybella injections can be a non-surgical alternative to liposuction for some patients.
You have anywhere from 2-4 Kybella treatment sessions. Treatments are usually around a month apart, and most patients notice results after their second treatment.
