What types of injectables and fillers do you offer at Illume Aesthetics?
The cosmetics industry grows every day, with new treatments constantly coming to market. There are millions of nonsurgical aesthetic treatments performed every year, the most popular being cosmetic injectables. Cosmetic injectables include both neuromodulators, such as botulinum toxin (Botox), and dermal fillers, such as Juvederm. The most popular component of dermal fillers is hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a naturally occurring substance found in the tissues of nearly every living animal. HA greatly aids in hydration and adds a suppleness to the skin’s texture.
Injectable neurotoxins or neuromodulators—sold under brand names such as Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin—work to smooth fine lines and wrinkles by temporarily relaxing muscles that are responsible for creating these fine lines and wrinkles. An important difference is that these neurotoxins work predominantly on the wrinkles that are present when facial muscles are used to create expression, known as dynamic wrinkles. Neurotoxins are not designed to treat static wrinkles, which are wrinkles that are seen even at rest. Cosmetic fillers go one step further and can be used to lift cheeks, eliminate dark circles from under eyes, enhance the lips, erase smile lines and eliminate vertical lip lines. Fillers work on wrinkles seen at rest.
The effects of injectable fillers can last anywhere between three months to two years, depending on what product is being used, where on the body the product is being injected, and the patient’s individual metabolism. These injectables typically last for:
• Juvederm — 6 to 12 months
• Radiesse — Up to 24 months
• Belotero — 6 to 12 months
• Botox — 3 to 4 months
• Dysport — Up to 5 months
• Xeomin — 3 to 6 months
The cost of filler injections varies greatly based on:
• What type of filler was used
• The amount of filler used
• The clinic’s pricing structure
• Where the clinic is located
• Even based on these factors, it is difficult to put an average price on the cost of fillers, because they can vary so greatly between practices and patients.
Telltale signs that fillers may be beneficial include:
• A noticeable deepening of the nasolabial folds
• Once-prominent cheekbones deflating, especially when the face is viewed from an angle
• Prominent signs of aging, including deep furrows and other wrinkles
• Facial volume loss
• Loose or sagging skin
