Injectables Q & A

What are injectables?

Injectables are made of a clear gel consisting of fillers, such as hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid exists in your body naturally. It hydrates your skin and offers a cushion between joints.  Less invasive than cosmetic surgery, injectable fillers can improve the physical signs of aging, such as wrinkles, thinning lips, and loss of facial volume. Dr. Gligoric and the team at Ageless Laser Med Spa design a custom treatment strategy for your aesthetic goals.

How can injectables enhance my appearance?

Filler injectables temporarily improve appearance by minimizing the effect of aging on your skin. Injectables can:

  • Reduce wrinkles and lines 
  • Give lips volume
  • Give cheeks a fuller appearance
  • Create a symmetrical appearance

Some people need more than one filler injection to get satisfactory results. Injectables offer results for six months to a year, after which time you may decide to repeat the process.

What is Botox®?

Botox cosmetic injections are the first and only FDA-approved option to temporarily improve the appearance of wrinkles and aging on your face. Botox areas of treatment include:

  • Between eyebrows
  • Crow's-feet around eyes
  • Lip augmentation
  • Forehead
  • Frown lines
  • Volumizing the face
  • Neck lines

Botox and other injectables work by blocking signals between nerves and muscles. The injection prevents the muscles from tightening as forcefully, causing wrinkles to soften and relax.

Am I a good candidate for injectables?

When you schedule an appointment for aesthetic medicine, Dr. Gligoric discusses your cosmetic goals, expectations, and overall health to determine whether you are a candidate for injectables or if you should consider other options. You might be a candidate for injectables if you:

  • Do not have active skin conditions
  • Do not have blood-clotting issues
  • Are unhappy with your appearance
  • Are at least 18 years old

If the providers at Ageless Laser Med Spa decide injectables are not the best option for your cosmetic goals, Dr. Gligoric will review other treatment possibilities to help you look and feel your best.
