injectablesDescription: Injectables are generally classified as either fillers (such as Juvéderm,  Radiesse, or Hyaluronic Acid) or Botox (the Botulinim Toxin, which weakens the muscles that cause expression lines, like crows feet and frown lines).

How it’s done: Fillers and Botox are injected into the face with a syringe. Injectables can last anywhere from a few months to a year or more, depending on the type.

Complications: These vary between injectables. There may be mild irritation, bruising, swelling or tenderness at the site of injection. Some patients may experience an allergic reaction.

Recovery: There is usually very little to no recovery time necessary for most injectables.  Results can improve over time but are often visible almost immediately.

Cost: Varies depending on the injectable, the number of vials being used and the provider.
