Not all plastic surgery requires an extensive operation. Injectable fillers create a fuller, more youthful appearance without going under the knife. This procedure can help fill out thin lips, enhance shallow contours, soften creases and wrinkles, and improve the appearance of scars.
One of the most popular forms of fillers is hyaluronic adic (Juvederm). Like your skin, hyaluronic acid is a natural component of connective tissue. This soft filler can help correct wrinkles and add volume to desired areas. Juvederm injections can last for 6-24 months, but vary among patients and areas treated. Many patients are intrigued by dermal fillers and injectables because they don't involve a surgical procedure and recovery period.
Sometimes, even with diet and exercise, fullness beneath the chin can make you appear older or heavier than you actually are. Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment to improve the appearance of moferate to severe fat beneath the chin by physically destroying fat cells.
When seeking out advice on injectable fillers, consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon to determine the best option for achieving great results.
