Injectables also known as “ dermal fillers” are products that are used to fill wrinkles or add volume to your face (and even other areas of the body and hands!). They provide structure and lift and can really transform a face. The area to be treated, as well as the look you desire will determine which of the many available injectables is right for you.
Injectables are aesthetic treatments that are injected into the skin and come in a variety of gel forms. At Glowtox we custom tailor a treatment plan using some of the products below to get you to your desired goals!
Radiesse is excellent for restoring over all facial volume as well as building structure like enhancing chin or jawline. Radiesse is designed to bind with existing molecules to form scaffolding for facial structure. Sunken areas will see a renewed contour and shape; in some cases, the results can last up to 2 years. The active composition of Radiesse is Calcium Hydroxyapatite (CaHA) and this stimulates collagen production giving it a great longevity.
The Restylane Portfolio
The Restylane Family of fillers are hyaluronic acids which are complex sugar molecules also found naturally in the body, and gradually break down over time. These fillers come in different formulations and can treat a wide variety of concerns such as under eye hollows, flatness to the cheek and chin area, laxity around the areas of expression like marionette lines and nasolabial folds. This portfolio also offers excellent choices for creating fuller lips! Restylanes will last between six and nine months. The best part? When combined with other procedures such as Botox, patients can see optimal improvement!

- Restylane Lyft
- Restylane Kysse

Belotero is an FDA-approved, light-weight, super thin dermal filler that can be used to fill very superficial lines and is also a great choice for the tear trough(under eye) area.
This injectable gel is made out of hyaluronic acid, which works by pulling water into the cells to smooth and hydrate.
Sculptra® is made from poly-L-lactic acid. After Sculptra® is injected, collagen is gradually replaced 4-6 weeks, filling in wrinkles and folds and increasing the plumpness of the skin.
This product can be injected almost anywhere on the face, neck and decollate. Results from this procedure take 4-6 weeks to be noticeable and may require more than one treatment session.
The longevity of Sculptra is far beyond anything else on the market. It can last 2-3 years! For very athletic or lean patients with fast metabolisms, it is really ideal, since they tend to metabolize through regular fillers very quickly. However, most other patients are also great candidates.
