You are here - Injectables and Fillers

Injectables and Fillers

Injectables are a combination of dermal fillers and protein serums that are used to improve fine lines and wrinkles. Some injectables sculpt anatomical areas of the face creating contour and volume, while others prevent lines due to muscle contractions.

Injectables are generally well tolerated by all patients and are very safe when used properly. We only use injectables that are FDA-approved and that have undergone rigorous safety  testing in clinical studies.

Dr. Lesesne has extensive experience administering injectables, a deep knowledge of facial anatomy, and performs all procedures personally.

Cosmetic Injectables: Botulinum Toxin-A

Botox®, Dysport®, and Xeomin® are some of the best known types of botulinum toxin type A injections. These injections block muscular nerve signals, which then weakens the muscle so it can’t contract. The end result is diminished unwanted facial wrinkles.

Botox®, Dysport®, and Xeomin® treatments are an easy way to enhance your appearance with no downtime. Simple and almost painless, they are performed with very small injections into facial muscles that cause the muscles to relax and wrinkles to fade. The injections are very precise and affect only a few muscles of the face. The result is a relaxed and rested appearance within a matter of days by erasing unwanted lines and facial wrinkles.

Successful injections require skill, experience, and judgment to perform the treatment safely and effectively. Visible results will be noticed in only 7 to 10 days.

Cosmetic Injectables: Fillers

Dermal fillers are used to create contour and volume. They are injected into the desired area with a very fine needle and produce immediate, visible results. Treatment time for injectable fillers is approximately 30 minutes with a topical anesthetic to reduce any discomfort.

While all our injectable procedures are generally well-tolerated, patients are asked to avoid vitamin E, and anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen and aspirin 7 days prior to treatment to reduce the risk of swelling and bruising.

Restylane® and Juvederm® are FDA approved hyaluronic acid fillers consisting of a long-lasting gel that lifts and adds volume to the areas being treated. These treatments are particularly good with “static” wrinkles, wrinkles which are present even when the face is relaxed, as well as lip augmentation, smile lines, and deep folds. The effects generally last from 6 to 9 months.

Belotero Balance® has unique properties that allow it to adapt within the skin for soft and even correction. The versatility of the product makes it strong enough to handle deep treatment areas such as nasolabial folds (smile lines around the mouth) as well as more delicate areas such as vertical lip lines. The effects generally last from 6 to 9 months.

Radiesse® is a unique filler that is particularly well suited for augmenting the natural contours of the facial bones, such as the cheeks and jawline. It is made of calcium hydroxylapatite—the same basic substance found naturally in teeth and bones. Radiesse® also stimulates production of your own collagen and causes a smooth and natural improvement in wrinkles that can last for 2 years. Radiesse® can only be injected deep into the skin along the bone of the jaw or cheeks adding facial contour. Treatment time is 30 minutes.

Sculptra® works differently than other fillers like Restylane® and Juvederm®. Rather than filling the desired area with a gel formula of hyaluronic acid, Sculptra® stimulates your body to produce its own collagen. Sculptra® works more gradually than other fillers: it can take up to 3 treatments to achieve desired results,. The results, however, last up to two years. Sculptra® can only be used in nasolabial folds (lines from the nose to the sides of the mouth), marionette lines (lines from the corners of the mouth down to the chin), and chin wrinkles.

Voluma® is an instant, non-surgical solution that adds volume and contour to your face. Consisting of hyaluronic acid, Voluma® is injected into the mid-face, particularly around the cheekbones to create volume and lift. Treatment time is usually 30 minutes and no downtime is required. Voluma® can last up to 2 years.
