Facial Skin Injectables in the Charlotte Area
Soft tissue fillers are used to improve fine lines and wrinkles or add volume to deep folds or furrows. The use of these medical grade fillers, along with the equally popular BOTOX® injections, has revolutionized minimally invasive procedures for the treatment of wrinkles.
Lines, creases and wrinkles result from aging, heredity or lifestyle factors (smoking and sun exposure). Other areas may appear hollow and sunken from a loss of soft tissue volume. Areas treated include the forehead, glabella, cheeks and corners of the mouth. Treating the lip is also very common and can make it appear more full and refined.
Dr. Nowicky administers these soft tissue fillers himself, and you will benefit from his personal expertise.
The filler material is injected just below the skin into the area that needs improving. A local anesthetic or topical numbing cream may be used for patient comfort.
Collagen replacement has been around since the early 1980s. Although it was an effective product, it was required a skin test to identify any hypersensitivity. Newer forms of collagen are derived from a human source therefore do not require this pretesting. The results last between 3-4 months.
Hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Juvederm™ and Restylane®, have helped create an alternative to traditional cosmetic procedures. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is the key ingredient is a naturally occurring substance found in tissue and dermis of all living organisms. It has the unique ability to attract and bind water molecules which plump up the tissues into which it is injected. The effectiveness ranges between 6-12 months, depending upon the individual and the specific brand.
