Fillers and Injectables
What are Dermal Fillers and Injectables?
Dermal fillers and injectables are prescription gel substances that smooth wrinkles, fine lines and other signs of aging when injected into the targeted area. They also increase collagen production and the elasticity of aging skin. Men and women consider dermal filler and injectables when they want to correct minor skin imperfections without undergoing invasive surgeries that require downtime or recovery periods.
Are fillers right for me?
With age comes hollow cheeks, deeper lines and wrinkles, creases and folds, and skin that seems to sag. Anyone noticing these skin imperfections may be an ideal candidate for dermal fillers and injectables. Additionally, depending on the specific dermal filler, other imperfections, such as scars, are greatly diminished. Those who consider dermal fillers often do so as an alternative to more invasive surgeries and procedures.

When will I see the Results and will I have scars from Dermal Fillers treatment?
The results from dermal fillers and injectables vary with each one. Some are immediately noticeable while others may take a while to take effect in the targeted area. With many of the fillers and injectables, they boost collagen and elastin production, which adds volume to the skin over the course of a few months.

Is Botox right for me?
If you have a tired or worried look on your face all the time, you may want to consider BOTOX®. It relaxes the muscles associated with worry lines and furrowed brows to lift and smooth the area. It also treats excessive sweating, overactive bladder, and migraines so that anyone suffering from those conditions can get relief.
What to expect during Botox treatment?
Your appointment for BOTOX® injections is quick and virtually painless. It is common to get the injections immediately following your consultation if time allows. The LBC Laser MD physician simply injects the targeted areas with BOTOX® then gently massages the area to ensure the gel is evenly spread throughout the area. Most people handle the injections with no issues; however, if necessary, we can apply a numbing cream to the area to alleviate any anxiety or discomfort.
When will I see the reults from Botox and what to expect after treatment?
You will begin to see results from BOTOX® within a few days, with most of the results appearing within a week. It is important to note that the results are a very natural looking expression rather than the common misconception of a “frozen” face. You notice the change, but most other people will comment on how good you look but won’t realize you’ve had BOTOX®.
