Botox and Fillers for Men
Injectable Wrinkle Fillers
Wrinkle fillers consist of a carbohydrate gel that is injected in folds or wrinkles to improve the appearance or in the cheeks or other areas to restore youthful volume. The area is numbed with local anesthesia and the filler injected with a fine needle. The results are immediate and usually last 6-24 months, depending on the type of filler used. In some cases Dr. Niamtu can use a permanent filler. Recovery is minimal and this is a frequent “lunch time” procedure. Transient bruising or swelling can occur.
