Injectables: What’s the Difference?

For people considering non-surgical cosmetic procedures to smooth the lines on their face and reduce wrinkles, finding the right product can be a time-consuming and bewildering process. Most of the people who visit our practice in Knoxville have heard of BOTOX®, and a few have heard of Juvederm®, but when they hear the full range of options available to them, it can be a little too much to take in!

Some of the non-surgical cosmetic procedures available to Knoxville patients include:

  • BOTOX® Cosmetic– your doctor uses botulinum toxin to relax the muscles in your face, smoothing forehead wrinkles, frown lines, and crow’s feet
  • Dysport– Another botulinum-based product, Dysport has some chemical differences from BOTOX® that may cause it to work more quickly
  • Restylane– An injectable filler that restores the levels of hyaluronic acid in your skin, used for smoothing wrinkles and even plumping lips
  • Perlane– A version of Restylane designed to work in areas where a denser filler will have better effects, like restoring cheek volume
  • Juvederm XC– Another hyaluronic acid-based filler, specifically designed to smooth wrinkles around the nose and mouth for up to one year
  • Sculptra– A volumizer that uses polylactic acid to reverse the effects of “facial hollowing” in patients who have aged or lost a great deal of weight

Not only does Dr. Kleto’s practice offer all these options and more, but we also have a professional injectables specialist, Cynthia St. Germain, on our staff. Ms. St. Germain is an experienced and dedicated professional who excels at explaining the different options patients have with injectables, and she will be happy to help you find the product (or combination of products) that works best for you!
