The fountain of youth may be just a legend, but UMass Memorial Medical Center has the next best thing. Its Cosmetic Surgery Center offers Botox, as well as injectable fillers, such as Restylane and Radiesse®, that can leave your face looking younger in under an hour.
Years ago, surgery was the only way to get a more youthful look. Then doctors discovered a neurotoxin that reduces frown lines by freezing the muscles under the skin. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved botulinum toxin A, or Botox, for cosmetic use in 2002. Since then, Restylane and Radiesse also received FDA approval.
These injectable treatments and fillers have become so popular in the last decade that they are now being offered at gyms, spas and even parties. But like any medical procedure, cosmetic injections come with inherent risks. Only an experienced doctor with the proper equipment can provide a truly safe experience.
Ensure your treatment’s safety and success by visiting the UMass Memorial Cosmetic Surgery Center. UMass Memorial is the area’s leading academic medical center, with cutting-edge technology and a highly qualified staff. A board-certified plastic surgeon will consult with you to find out which injectable filler — or combination of fillers — best suits your needs.
Maybe you simply want to reduce early signs of aging, or perhaps you are curious about more permanent procedures such as laser skin resurfacing or chemical peels. UMass Memorial offers a wide array of services, and its staff can answer any questions you might have. They also have the experience necessary to perform precision work few can match.
In most cases, injectable fillers can be administered on an outpatient basis. Their relatively low pain factor makes them a perfect introduction to cosmetic treatments. You may even be able to go back to work after the procedure.
Whether you return to work or take the afternoon off, the UMass Memorial Cosmetic Surgery Center ensures a safe and pleasant experience. You will leave looking good and feeling even better about your new look.
