Augusta plastic surgeon Dr. Billy Lynn offers a number of injectable wrinkle treatments and dermal fillers to help you reduce signs of aging on your face. These treatments work either by immobilizing muscles that contribute to deep creases (such as frown lines) or adding volume to areas of skin that have lost their elasticity or have become hollowed out.
Please choose from the list below to learn more about a specific injectable treatment option at Savannah River Plastic Surgery:
An injection of a clinical formula of Botulinum Toxin Type A, known as BOTOX® Cosmetic, makes it possible to immobilize selected muscles of a patient’s facial expression; creating a smoothing effect by preventing those deep expression lines and furrows, especially around the forehead and eye area.
The effects of a BOTOX® Cosmetic injection usually last about 12 to 18 months, and subsequent injections may be recommended to continue the effects. Treatments often become less frequent as the muscles weaken and become less inclined to form lines and creases.
Dr. Billy Lynn offers BOTOX® Cosmetic injections in addition to a number of other non-surgical skin and facial rejuvenation treatments at Savannah River Plastic Surgery in Augusta, Georgia. Please schedule a personal consultation to discuss your options for injectable treatments, including BOTOX® Cosmetic.
Juvéderm® Injectable Gel
Juvéderm® Injectable Gel is a gel implant that includes hyaluronic acid, a natural complex sugar that bolsters skin elasticity, providing a smooth and supple appearance. It can improve your appearance by lifting and adding volume to the wrinkles and folds in the treatment area. Juvéderm® Injectable Gel may last up to one year.
Juvéderm® Ultra Plus
Juvéderm® Ultra Plus is very similar to Juvéderm® Ultra, in that they both include hyaluronic acid used to promote skin elasticity to give skin a smoother, more youthful look. Juvéderm® Ultra Plus also lasts up to one year. The difference is that Juvéderm® Ultra Plus is most effective on deeper furrows and wrinkles of the face and nasolabial folds.
Juvéderm® XC is the newest formula of Juvéderm®. It is designed to enhance a patient’s comfort. Juvéderm® XC is a hyaluronic acid-based gel with all the effectiveness of Juvéderm® Ultra and Juvéderm® Ultra Plus, providing natural-looking, taut skin. The only difference is that Juvéderm® XC includes an anesthetic to keep you comfortable during the procedure. The effects of lidocaine take place in seconds, so after a Juvéderm® XC treatment, you can go right back to their day with ease.
