Injectables & Fillers

Cosmetic injectables are a nonsurgical treatment used to reduce wrinkles and lines, add volume, and lift sagging skin. Injectable wrinkle fillers can give you a more youthful look by filling in hollows, lines, and wrinkles with results that can last months. Other treatments, such as Botox®, relax the muscle under the wrinkle to reduce the appearance of existing wrinkles and prevent new ones from forming.

With any medical procedure, it’s important to choose a highly trained and experienced provider. For cosmetic procedures, a board-certified dermatologist is recommended, because they have extensive medical training and an understanding of facial anatomy that will provide you with the safest and most desirable results possible.

What are the different types of injectables?

The two main types of injectables are neurotoxins and fillers. Both of these treatments can be used to make your skin look younger and smoother. However, they each treat different concerns and have unique sets of benefits. 

If you’re not sure which type of injectable is right for you, Dr. Weinstein Velez will provide a consultation to understand your goals and recommend the most appropriate treatment. At UR Medicine Dermatology, we offer the full spectrum of injectables and fillers to provide you customized, subtle results.

Neurotoxin injectables, such as Botox, are mostly used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles caused by frowning, squinting and smiling, such as:

  • Frown lines
  • Wrinkles around the eyes, such as crow’s feet
  • Forehead creases
  • Furrows between brows
  • Neck wrinkles

Fillers can be used to achieve different goals, such as:

  • Plump lips
  • Lift and enhance cheeks
  • Add volume in the tear trough (dark circles under eyes)
  • Soften nasolabial folds (smile lines)
  • Smooth vertical lip lines, marionette lines, and chin wrinkles
  • More youthful looking hands and chest

The uses of injectables and fillers go beyond facial needs. UR Medicine cosmetics expert, Dr. Mara Weinstein Velez, is one of the few cosmetic dermatologists in the area who uses injectables to treat wrinkles and sagging skin in chest, neck and hands. 

The treatment that is best for you depends on your unique needs and desires, and the experts at UR Medicine can help you make the best choice.
