As we get older, there are telltale signs of the aging process on our skin. Laugh lines around your mouth and crow’s feet by your eyes are just some of the more prominent signs that you are getting older. Oftentimes, there’s no need to go through an invasive procedure just because your skin is a little saggy or you have less elasticity than before. Instead, you may want to look into injectables, which are treatments that can help counteract the signs of aging without surgery. When you take advantage of injectables at Southeastern Institute of Restorative Medicine in Dothan, AL, you could reap some of the benefits of a surgical facelift without having to go through the recovery time or the discomfort.

Why Visit Us?
It is important to realize that if injectable treatments are administered wrong, or if the technique is incorrect, this can lead to some undesirable results. For example, you could end up with asymmetry, an overly masculine jawline, or even an overly tight appearance. This is why you need to do your research to find a doctor who is trained, has done this many times before, has a good track record, and can provide evidence as to their success.
Dr. Thompson has extensive training in the field and has decided on the two safest and most effective procedures to offer clients: dermal fillers and botulinum toxin treatment.
Dermal Filler Treatment
Injectable dermal fillers can do a number of things. They can plump thin lips, remove wrinkles, improve the appearance of scars, and enhance shallow contours. There are a number of factors that can impact our skin, such as lifestyle, hereditary conditions, and sun exposure, which is where dermal fillers can help. One of the biggest benefits of opting for this treatment is that there is no set downtime. Once you have had your injections, you can resume your daily activities immediately.
Dr. Thompson uses a range of dermal fillers, including Radiesse®, Versa®, Perfectha®, Restylane®, Belotero®, and Juvederm®, and pricing starts at $425.
Botulinum Toxin Treatment
Botulinum toxin is specifically designed to help correct facial wrinkles. The injections typically last for around four months, and the treatment works through small intramuscular injections that contain an FDA-approved purified protein. When you get frown lines, it is because the muscles in the face are being used too often, but when injected with botulinum toxin, the muscle activity in the treatment area is reduced, which then lessens the appearance of wrinkles.
At our office in Dothan, AL, we’re proud to offer treatment in the form of Botox®, Jeuveau®, Dysport®, and Xeomin®. Pricing starts at $8.49/unit.
What are the Results Like?
The results of injectables vary from patient to patient based on a number of factors. They are all temporary, so you’ll eventually need follow-up appointments to maintain the results.
Addressing Signs of Aging
With injectables, you could get the confidence boost that you need without the risks that come with a more invasive procedure.
