Not all cosmetic procedures require surgery or a lengthy recovery. Injectables are an easy, efficient way to rejuvenate the skin by reversing common signs of aging. The talented, experienced team of registered nurses at The Skin Care Center are successful at addressing skin laxity, volume loss and lines/wrinkles with strategic injections.

Types of Cosmetic Injectables


As facial skin thins, the indentations that form when certain expressions are made can linger for longer and longer. Botox uses botulinum toxin type A to freeze specific muscles that cause these lines. In the days (or weeks, for deeper-set lines) after the injection, these lines can gradually fade. Botox is most effective at diminishing lines on the upper portion of the face, like brow lines, frown lines and crow’s feet. Botox lasts for about three to four months before subsequent injections are necessary to maintain the results.


Juvederm is a family of dermal fillers that uses hyaluronic acid to restore volume to the skin. In addition to adding fullness to areas where volume is attractive like the cheeks and lips, Juvederm helps minimize lines and creases that form due to skin laxity, especially lines on the lower portion of the face like marionette lines and nasolabial folds. The added volume is visible immediately, with results improving somewhat in the following weeks as new collagen is produced. Juvederm lasts for up to one year.


Like Juvederm, Restylane is a family of hyaluronic acid-based fillers that adds volume to the skin. It is an especially popular choice for adding fullness to the lips, cheeks and thinning skin on the hands. Restylane has a thinner consistency than other injectables, so it tends to be less expensive than other options. It also only lasts for about six months before further injections are required to maintain the results.


Instead of hyaluronic acid, Radiesse provides volume with calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA). Since it is thicker than other fillers, it is a good choice for filling in moderate to severe lines on the lower face. Results from Radiesse are immediate (improving gradually thanks to a boost in collagen) and tend to last a full year.

Cosmetic Injectable Costs
