Facial Fillers and Collagen Injections
As you age, so does the skin on your face. The lines and wrinkles that appear around your eyes, nose, mouth and on your brow are signs that the skin is no longer as resilient as it was in your youth. Loss of collagen and elasticity allows lines and wrinkles to form, marking your face with age. The good news is that facial fillers can enhance collagen, and other injections like Botox can smooth away many lines, helping you look years younger. As part of our procedures at Torrance Oral Surgery and Dental Implant Center, we are happy to offer these cosmetic treatments for our patients who want to maintain a youthful appearance.
How Do Cosmetic Injections Work?
There are many different cosmetic injections that offer anti-aging benefits. Some help increase collagen, volume or elasticity in the skin, helping it appear smoother and more youthful. Others work as neuro-modulators, impacting muscle contractions that cause lines and wrinkles to appear. These types of cosmetic injections can be used together or separately, depending on the results desired by the patient. At Torrance Oral Surgery and Dental Implant Center, we offer:
With cosmetic injections, there is no need for invasive cosmetic surgery or downtime after the procedure. These treatments can be completed in an office visit, even done on a lunch break from work. Depending on which treatment you receive, the results can last for several months or more. To maintain the youthful appearance, repeated injections are needed once the effects begin to fade.
