Sometimes there are certain areas of the face that need something extra to help us regain our youthful appearance. These target areas can be smoothed with FDA-approved injectables. Facial fillers may be the perfect option to help you achieve a younger-looking face with no downtime and results that last 6-12 months.

What Neurotoxins Do You Offer and What Do They Do?
At Low Country Dermatology, we offer Botox, Dysport, and Jeuveau.
Botox is an injectable that is used primarily as an anti-wrinkle treatment for the forehead, crow’s feet, and frown lines. It is injected directly into the individual facial muscles that are responsible for causing wrinkles in the overlying skin. Most patients see a noticeable improvement within a week, and the results can last between 3-6 months. Additional treatments are necessary to maintain the desired result, and since the neurotoxins’ full results take up to 2 weeks to develop, you will schedule a follow-up with your provider at that time to see if additional units are needed.
Dysport is an injectable used to temporarily improve the appearance of wrinkles. It works by blocking nerve signals that cause muscles to contract and can soften the appearance of dynamic wrinkles, such as crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines. Results typically last about 3 months.
Jeuveau is a newer injectable that was recently FDA approved in February of 2019. Jeuveau is a botulinum toxin type A and uses a purified botulinum toxin. It is similar to Botox and other injectables with the key difference being that it has a higher protein concentration than the others, meaning less product is needed per injection site. This helps with those who may be sensitive or have had prior reactions to Botox. Results from the initial injections typically last up to 4 months, with maintenance injections needed every 3-6 months once the initial treatment phase has been completed.
Injectables and facial fillers are a safe and effective way to help restore your face to its youthful days.
