Fillers

Botox migraine slide
As we age, sunlight and environmental stress begin to break down our skin’s underlying support structure. We slowly lose bone and tissue mass, and our youthful facial fat pads shrink and migrate downward as gravity takes effect.

Together, these changes lead to sagging cheeks, sunken temples, eye hollows & dark circles, pronounced lower facial lines, and hanging jowls. To help reverse these age-related changes, soft tissue injectable fillers can be added beneath the skin’s surface to restore volume, lift sagging structures, and judiciously fill lines.

Many soft tissue fillers are available on the market, and each has specific uses. Whether a product is meant to restore volume or fill fine lines depends on its physical properties. Products that are bulky tend to be better for providing volume, while softer products are ideal for minimizing shallow lines or plumping deflated lips. Visible results after each treatment may last from 6-24 months, depending on the amount of product injected and product type used.


Facial fillers, also known as dermal fillers, can work all sorts of magic:
  • Plump thinning lips
  • Give eyebrows a lift 
  • Enhance cheekbones
  • Erase under-eye circles
  • Smooth smile lines

 

Neurotoxins

Botulinum injectables are substances used to soften expression lines such as those in the frown, forehead & crowfeet areas. Over time, as this treatment is performed through the years, there is progressive and lasting improvement of these lines.
Furthermore, Botulinum products can be used to soften the anterior neck bands and cause a modest lift of the jawline, as part of a procedure called the Nefertiti Lift.
Similarly, Botulinum can be injected around the lips, particularly the upper lip, to soften smoker’s lines, and it may also be used to correct the gummy smile and raise the tip of the nose in some patients. The applications of Botulinum for cosmetic purposes on the face are thus multiple, and when skillfully applied they can lead to smooth facial skin and a youthful appearance. Botulinum applications do not just stop at beauty. There are other procedures that Botulinum can be used for such things as chronic migraines, excessive sweating & neck spasms
Service
All of the procedures done at Macomb Primary Care have extensive knowledge of anatomy and will examine your needs carefully while listening to your concerns. Macomb Primary Care physicians have more than 20 years experience helping their patients. With your input, we will thoughtfully customize a precise injectable protocol to best address your needs. Sometimes we may recommend combining fillers with muscle relaxants, such as Botox or Dysport or Xeomin, or with laser procedures.
We look forward to helping you look & feel your best and are committed to achieving natural looking results.

To minimize discomfort during your procedure, we may use topical numbing cream, nerve blocks, or ice packs. Many of today’s fillers come pre-mixed with lidocaine (numbing medication) to help further minimize pain. Most patients tolerate their procedures well, but bruising and swelling may occur. If you take herbal supplements, elective aspirin or NSAIDS (Motin, Advil, Naproxen, etc.), we encourage you to discontinue these supplements about 10 days before your treatment session. This will help minimize excess bruising.
