At Ennis Plastic Surgery, we are pleased to offer a solution to age defying medicine, in the form of cosmetic injectables. Injectables are intended to prevent the occurrence of and reduce the appearance of deep creases and furrows in the face. In addition, some injectables work to reduce fat accumulation in the region below the chin and jaw, effectively treating a double chin.
One of the first signs of aging is seen in our faces. With aging, the face loses elasticity, with decreased cellular turnover. Expressions of laughing, smiling, and frowning can leave deep creases in the skin. Additionally, fat accumulation can amount in the lower face, especially under the chin and jawline. These combined changed can result in an aged face that lacks a smooth and youthful appearance.
Fortunately, injectables have proven to disrupt the aging process by providing a means to correct for muscle tension in the face, reducing the appearance of deep lines and creases. Expected outcomes of dermal injections, depend on the area treated and the reason for treatment. In general, injectables are used to relax facial muscles and reduce fat cell accumulation.
