What are Injectables?
Created to perfect + maintain. We specialize in wrinkle relaxers, dermal fillers, and anti-aging treatments to give you a more youthful appearance and help you achieve your cosmetic goals.
Wrinkles result from a combination of many factors including collagen depletion, cellular changes, or damage caused by free radicals. Injectables are used to relax facial wrinkles and folds and improve the signs of facial fat loss by creating structure, framework and volume to the face and lips.
