Injectables & Cosmetic Fillers
Cosmetic medicine injectables have grown in popularity over recent years this is because they offer great results without going under the knife. Injectable fillers can help minimize frown lines, expression lines, crows feet, plump up thin lips and can even help fill in shallow contours of the face. There are different types of injectables offered at the Fountain of Youth Institute®: Botox, Juvederm, and Collagen.
Botox® eliminates dynamic wrinkles (those that form as a result of facial expressions) by relaxing the underlying muscles which contract and cause the wrinkle.
Juvederm® is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid – a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. Juvederm ® instantly restores your skin’s volume and smooths away facial wrinkles and folds, like your “smile lines” or “parentheses” (nasalabial folds – the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth).
