Skin Fillers Used by Plastic Surgeons - Charleston SC

Common Skin Fillers Preferred by Plastic Surgeons

Skin fillers are synthetic materials that are specially made to do just that…fill fine lines and wrinkles. Anytime facial expressions are made – smiling, frowning, a puzzled look, laughing will contract the muscles in your face. With time, the contractions in your face produce furrows, creases, lines, and wrinkles in the skin that cannot be easily erased. These deep lines are generally seen around the mouth, eyes, and forehead. These lines could make you look older than you are. However, there is a solution for those who want to reduce the effects that come with aging, it’s Botox.

Botox Cosmetic treatments are available at O’Neill Plastic Surgery, and they help to prevent lines and wrinkles from being noticed on your face. Please note, Botox will not erase lines forever. Botox treatments will leave you looking, and feeling young and refreshed, once again.


What Are Botox Treatments?

Botox is one of the most used skin fillers.  Botox is by far the most popular deep line and wrinkle treatment in the cosmetic industry, and throughout the entire country. It’s a quick, effective, and most importantly, a SAFE treatment, which is able to prevent and eliminate any facial lines for up to six months. No surgery or downtime is needed, and there is little discomfort with obtaining the injections.

If you have never undergone a Botox procedure, you may have some questions surrounding the Procedure. Botox entails tiny injections which are placed strategically on the face to provide a rejuvenated look. The Botox solution that is placed beneath the skin smooths out the appearance, making the lines and wrinkles.


What Exactly is in the Botox Treatment?

Botox is made directly from a highly purified protein that is extremely safe when administered by a trained, licensed professional, like Dr. Patrick O’Neill. It works to fill the pockets in the skin, while also relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles to happen. This is why Botox is the go-to option for wrinkle removal and prevention.
