What are Injectables?
Injectables are one of the many cosmetic services available at Associated Dermatologists. The team of experts offers a variety of injectables to meet a range of needs, including:
Dermal fillers are cosmetic injections that add volume under your skin to enhance features, plump up lips, and smooth out wrinkles.
Associated Dermatologists uses many lines of dermal fillers to meet a wide range of beauty needs, including Restylane® fillers and Juvéderm® fillers.
To stimulate your skin’s production of collagen, the dermatology practice also offers Sculptra® Aesthetic. Collagen is a structural protein that keeps your skin strong and resilient.
