Dermal Injectables in Fayetteville

Did you know that many of the visible signs of aging are related to dynamic wrinkles and volume loss? Dynamic wrinkles are formed from repeated facial muscle movements, such as laugh lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet.

With age, your skin and tissue become thin, making these dynamic wrinkles more visible, and the loss of collagen and fat deposits can make your cheeks look more hollow. These changes may give you a perpetually tired or angry look. However, dermal injectables in Fayetteville can help smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, and add a little volume to your cheeks or structure to your face.

What Are Injectables?

Injectables are a combination of different materials that can be injected beneath your skin to address your cosmetic concerns. Each injectable can accomplish a different goal and is typically used in different areas of your face.

These are non-surgical, minimally invasive cosmetic procedures that are typically used around the eyes, mouth, and nose. In most cases, the results are seen immediately or within the first few days, and in some cases, they can last for years.

The injections we use in Fayetteville are an elective treatment that people use to enhance facial features or achieve a more youthful appearance. Most take less than 30 minutes.

During your consultation with one of our physician assistants, we will discuss your options based on your cosmetic concerns, as well as any side effects you could expect. Generally, health insurance providers do not cover elective cosmetic procedures.

What Dermal Injectables Can – and Cannot – Do

Injectables are chosen to add volume or reduce wrinkles. One type of injectable is dermal fillers, which can add volume, plump cheeks or lips, smooth out static wrinkles and creases, or make facial features more symmetrical. Some medical conditions and treatments can increase fat loss in your face, which dermal fillers can help restore.

However, while a dermal filler procedure can help restore volume, it cannot remove excess sagging skin that may result from loss of collagen and elastin. These two proteins are responsible for skin structure and elasticity. For example, if you feel your eyebrows are too low or your eyelids have excess skin, surgical procedures such as a brow lift or eye lift are probably the best approach.

Dermal fillers cannot get the same results but may be used initially to delay the consideration of plastic surgery. It is also important to remember that dermal fillers are a short-term treatment for aging and to get long-term results you will need ongoing treatment.

Another type of injectable we use in Fayetteville is for reducing the appearance of dynamic wrinkles around the mouth, eyes, and between the eyebrows. This product is injected into the muscle beneath the skin to block chemical signals from reaching the muscle, preventing the muscles from contracting and thus relaxing the muscles that cause facial wrinkles.

Types of Dermal Injectables

We offer three general categories of dermal injectables in our Fayetteville office to help address your cosmetic concerns. Each of these has advantages and disadvantages which you will discuss during your consultation with our team member.


Neurotoxin injectables use processed botulinum toxin derived from Clostridium botulinum. The most popular and well-known of these neurotoxins is Botox, but there are other FDA-approved injectables that we offer, such as Dysport. Each of the neurotoxins has different advantages and disadvantages.

For example, it can take ten to fourteen days for the results of Botox to show up and they last roughly three to four months for most people. The effects of Dysport injections may show up within two to three days and should also last three to four months as well.

Hyaluronic acid Fillers

Dermal fillers may use injectable hyaluronic acid, which is a substance found naturally throughout the body. In the skin, hyaluronic acid attracts water, which reduces the appearance of volume loss and plumps fine lines and wrinkles, facial folds, and lips. This can create a greater structure and framework for the face and lips. Dermal fillers like Restylane and Juvederm have unique characteristics that influence where they are best used. We will determine the type of hyaluronic acid injectable to use based on where you want to improve volume.


These are products that are injected into the skin to stimulate your body to naturally produce more collagen and elastin. These proteins help restore volume loss, tighten the skin, give greater elasticity, and provide lasting results. Sculptra and Radiesse are two of the biostimulants we use in our office. The results of these injections can last several years, which is much longer than a traditional hyaluronic acid filler. Additionally, Sculptra and Radiesse can be used throughout the body to help build collagen, treat cellulite, improve skin texture, and provide natural-looking gradual results so you don’t look like you “just had work done.”
