Injectables (Botox® and Fillers)

As we age, the face develops wrinkles, frowns, skin pigmentation, and
tissue atrophy.  These are secondary to the effects of muscle activity, sun
damage, gravity, and the natural course of aging.  Dr. Goodwin has
numerous tools in his armamentarium to treat these features without
surgery and with minimal to no recovery time and immediate return to
normal activity.  Each of these products can be used alone to treat
specific features.  However, in combination they can often provide a
refreshing lift to the face without producing scars.

The natural purified protein botulinum toxin (Botox®) is a safe and
effective injectable treatment for wrinkles, frowns, and muscle
hyperactivity.  It works by temporarily paralyzing the muscles by
blocking the nerve impulses.  Areas most commonly treated are in the
upper face (brow, forehead, and around the eyes).  Sometimes it is also
used in the lips, cheeks, and neck.  Muscle function usually returns in 3-5
months; repeated injection usually requires less Botox® for effect.

Injectable fillers can provide volume and reduce the appearance of
stubborn wrinkles.  These fillers are temporary; the longevity depends on
the type of filler, the volume injected, and the location.  Filler types
include hyaluronic acid (
Juvéderm™, Restylane, and Perlane),
collagen (
Evolence), and autologous fat.

Hyaluronic Acid (Juvéderm™, Restylane, and Perlane) is a natural
complex sugar found in all living cells.  It is one of the major components
of skin that atrophies over the natural course of aging.  It is most often
used to treat the nasolabial fold and to add lip volume.  It can also be
used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and other facial depressions
(eyelid cheek junction, marionette lines).  With enough volume it can also
add fullness and lift to the brow and cheeks. Longevity of the filler ranges
from 4 to 12 months depending on location of injection.

Collagen (Evolence®) is a new dermal filler made of natural collagen
also used to treat wrinkles and volume-depleted areas.  Collagen
provides volume and structure to most tissues in the human body
including skin.  Collagen depletes naturally over time as we age, leading
to a tired or aged appearance.  This happens through the formation of
new wrinkles and folds, and changes in facial contour and structure.  The
natural pace of collagen loss can by accelerated by such factors as sun
exposure, genetics, hormonal changes, and smoking.  By replacing lost
collagen with an advanced collagen compound, EVOLENCE® dermal
filler can help enhance and maintain the structure, volume, and naturally
younger-looking appearance of your skin.  It delivers immediate results
that last at least 6 months.

Fat grafting provides volume by using your own tissue.  While the risks
of rejection or allergy are minimal with the other injectables, it is non-
existent with using your own fat.  This technique relies on harvesting fat
cells from areas of excess and injecting it to areas of depletion where the
fat cells re-establish blood supply to survive.  Successful transfer of the
living cells will deliver significantly increased longevity to the result.
