Anyone who has tried injectables had a personal reason for going under the needle. One of the most common is seeing old photographs of yourself — and realizing that your appearance has changed. Thirty-something Atlanta resident and event planner Nina had that exact experience. She observed forehead and glabella wrinkles cropping up, a loss of volume in her cheeks that she felt made her face look hollow, and a lack of fullness in her lips. After a few years of considering trying injectable wrinkle reducers and dermal fillers, Nina decided to finally take the plunge. Here, watch as Atlanta plastic surgeon Carmen Kavali, MD, gives Nina a consultation and injects her for the first time. You’ll be stunned by the subtlety of her results before and after treatment!
Injectable wrinkle reducers temporarily smooth the look of moderate to severe wrinkles in certain areas of the face, including the forehead, frown lines, and crow’s feet; they should not be used more frequently than every three months. Injectable filler is a temporary treatment that adds volume to areas of the face such as the lips, cheeks, and laugh lines. Like any medical treatment, both injectable wrinkle reducers and injectable fillers have potential risks and side effects. Talk to a licensed provider to see if they’re right for you.
