Injectables are substances that inserted into the skin that help support muscles and lessening the appearance of wrinkles.
Botox®, Dysport®, Jevederm (Juvederm Voluma® XC, Juvederm VollureTM XC, Juvederm XC, Juvederm Volbella® XC) and Xeomin® are all classified as neuromuscular inhibitors, which is also referred to as injectables or wrinkle relaxers.
When injected into a muscle – they prevent muscle contraction thus causing the muscle to relax.
Injectable appointments are typically 15-30 minutes, with the length of time depending upon the extensiveness of your treatment. Injectables typically have an onset of 2-10 days and last for 3-5 months. During this time, the wrinkles, furrows, and creases will smooth out and become unnoticeable.
Our office provides injectable treatments to men and women who understand the benefits of reducing the signs of aging. They find that treatment benefits them professionally and personally. We tailor our treatments for both men and women who are health conscious and who want to look as good as they feel.

Wrinkle Relaxer FAQs
Aging, and other universal elements cause our skin components to break down and lose natural volume and structure. Our skin collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid levels are reduced during the aging process causing noticeable volume loss, lines, facial folds and wrinkles in the skin.
At our practice, we utilize a variety of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers and collagen stimulators which provide immediate restoration of volume loss and facial contours. Our office utilizes both Juvederm and Restylane fillers to meet the needs of our patients.
Our dermal filler treatments generally take 30-45 minutes, depending on your specific needs. These treatments last from 6-24 months. Using a fine needle, the smooth gel is gently injected under the skin. All of our products contain an anesthetic, called lidocaine, to help reduce discomfort during your treatment.
