Which injectable treatment is right for me?

To learn more about which injectable will address your specific issues, here’s a breakdown of common aesthetic problems and recommended treatment options:

Wrinkles and fine lines

Effective injectables for eliminating wrinkles and fine lines in your face and hands include all options available at Avante Laser and MediSpa. For minor to moderate wrinkles, Belotero is a thin filler that can be used closer to the surface of your skin and is effective at treating fine lines around your lips and eyes.

If you have severe wrinkles and folds, you may achieve better results with Restylane or Perlane.

Sculptra Aesthetic also works on wrinkles but uses a more gradual process than other injectables. This treatment stimulates your body’s own production of new collagen that fills in wrinkles and lines over time, with long-lasting, dramatic results.

Thin lips

If you’re dissatisfied with thin, poorly defined lips, you can benefit from Restylane or Juv?derm treatments, two injectables that contain hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring acid in your skin.

These treatments instantly add hydration and volume to your lips, enhancing their appearance immediately with natural-looking results.

All of these injectables provide long-lasting results, averaging one to two years.

Frown lines and crow’s feet

If you have frown lines across your forehead of crow’s feet around your eyes, either Botox or Dysport can be effective remedies. These injectables are effective at treating repetitive-use muscles caused by everyday actions, like squinting and frowning.

Both treatments contain botulinum toxin that temporarily paralyzes your muscles, blocking the nerve signal to your brain that causes muscle contractions.

Nose and mouth creases

Deep folds and wrinkles around the nose and mouth, including laugh lines, can be effectively treated with Radiesse. This injectable contains calcium hydroxyapatite, a substance that instantly plumps your skin and also stimulates natural collagen production for progressively smoother skin over time.

Radiesse treatments provide immediate skin-tightening benefits to make your skin look younger than your years.

Your Avante Laser and Medspa provider will provide you with a comprehensive treatment plan to address your specific cosmetic concerns. Knowing what to expect going into your consultation can help you make the most informed treatment decisions.

The benefits of injectables

Thanks to advancements in aesthetic practices, there are now more injectable options available than ever. They offer a number of benefits, including:

  • Fast treatment times
  • Virtually painless procedure

  • Long-lasting results
