What Are Dermal Fillers and Injectables?
Dermal fillers and injectables are minimally invasive treatments, meaning that only the needle penetrates the skin. The products contain ingredients that are proven to soften wrinkles. If you have early to moderate signs of aging, but don’t want to have surgery to feel better about your appearance, these treatments are great options. No downtime is needed, and most products produce immediate results. Take some time to browse our injectables and dermal fillers before and after photos to get an idea about how these treatments work.
How Much Do Injectables and Dermal Fillers Cost?
At OptimalSelf MD, we understand that you want to feel good about yourself, yet cost may be a primary consideration. We recommend that you schedule a consultation as a first step. Phone consultations are complimentary, and we charge a fee for an in-office consultation. As part of the consultation, we explain the price of your dermal fillers and injectables, and payment can be made by cash, check, and credit card. We work with CareCredit® and Alphaeon® to offer our patients financing options. You can also save on treatments through Brilliant Distinctions®. The program is free to join and uses a points system to reward patients with savings on certain Allergan aesthetic treatments and products. During each treatment, you will receive points that you can redeem for future use. Additionally, as a member, you will receive special offers and promotions.
Who is a Good Candidate for Dermal Fillers and Injectables?
Dermal fillers are excellent for men and women with mild to moderate wrinkles. The treatments also include lip injections to add volume and soften vertical lip lines. Botox® injections and our other injectable treatments are ideal if you want to avoid cosmetic surgery, but they can also be used post-surgery to refine the results.
What Types of Dermal Fillers and Injectables Should I Consider?
- Botox® and Neuromodulators work for dynamic wrinkles in the upper area of the face, such as around the eyes and on the forehead
- Juvéderm® and Dermal Fillers use various mechanisms to add volume to the skin and soften wrinkles
- Facial Fat Transfer is an alternative to neuromodulators and dermal fillers that relies on injections of your own fat to soften wrinkles and enhance facial contours
Can I Schedule a Consultation for Dermal Fillers and Injectables?
Dermal fillers and injectables are popular cosmetic options and widely available, yet many practitioners who offer these convenient treatments don’t have the expertise needed to produce the best possible results safely and effectively. If you are considering dermal fillers and injectables, please schedule a consultation with Dr. Shawn. We offer complimentary 15-minute phone consultations, or you can schedule an in-office consultation for a fee.
OptimalSelf MD is the first center in South Carolina to offer plastic surgery, aesthetics, and wellness for men and women in Greeneville, Simpsonville, Greer, Spartanburg, and the nearby areas of South Carolina. Contact us today to schedule a consultation to discuss your options for dermal fillers and injectables.
“Often, patients ask about raising their eyebrows with Botox. I explain in detail the underlying complex, muscular components of their forehead. I’m very detailed in my evaluation of each patient. As every individual has a unique eyelid, eyebrow and forehead, these features must be taken into consideration before just injecting a bunch of Botox!
Explaining what I can and cannot do with an injection (and if additional procedures may be needed) is just a part of our conversation. That’s the power of having a number of non-surgical and plastic surgical options at hand — to effect the best aesthetic change for my patients.”
