Dermatologic surgeons and other field experts have worked together to develop and test injectable substances that smooth wrinkles and add volume to your skin. Injectables create the look you desire without invasive procedures. Dr. David L. Graham at Silver Leaf Dermatology offers aesthetic injectables, including Botox®, Belotero®, Radiesse®, and Xeomin® to Edmond and Enid, Oklahoma, area patients who want an impressive change that doesn't require surgery.
Botox and Xeomin are FDA-approved injectables that smooth away facial wrinkles. Although the active ingredients in these products are made from the botulinum toxin, the amount injected into the targeted area is safe for your body.
Botox and Xeomin block the nerve activity inside the facial muscles where it's injected. These inactive nerves cause the muscles to create wrinkle-causing movements less often. Ultimately, your wrinkles become smoother.
Botox and Xeomin require approximately one week to take effect. Expect these results to last on average three to six months. Dr. Graham helps you determine which product is best suited for your needs.
Belotero Balance is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler that rebuilds lost facial volume, primarily in your mouth area. This injectable is especially useful for filling in the smoker's lines that form around your lips and adding volume to your lips.
Belotero Balance produces a natural-looking result. These results last six months on average, but you can maintain your new look with follow-up treatments twice per year.
Radiesse offers two principal benefits: you see immediate results and can enjoy the benefits of a gradual increase in your natural collagen levels. This dermal filler is made of smooth calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres contained in a gel base of sodium carboxymethylcellulose.
Radiesse typically works best in areas like the grooves that can develop on the sides of the nose and mouth over time, called nasolabial folds. Your results from Radiesse are likely to last for one year or longer.
Many patients at Silver Leaf Dermatology have two or more types of injectable treatments during a single visit.
For example, if you're concerned about forehead lines, nasolabial folds, and a lack of lip volume, Dr. Graham can address all three issues in the same visit. Botox or Xeomin corrects the forehead lines, Radiesse fills in the nasolabial folds, and Belotero Balance adds the desired lip volume.
