Because of the natural aging process, wrinkles will develop at one point or another. While wrinkles are inevitable, there are ways to slow down their progression. Certain lifestyle changes can improve the appearance of wrinkles such as wearing sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher, quitting smoking and reducing prolonged sun exposure. However, if you are looking to take a more proactive route to reducing your wrinkles, Dermatology Associates of Atlanta offers a wide range of cosmetic injectables to help give your skin a youthful look.
Botox® Cosmetic by Allergan
This neuromodulator injectable helps to relax the facial muscles that create wrinkles around the eyes and forehead. As we age, the skin loses elasticity which makes it harder for the skin to bounce back when we make facial expressions. Botox® temporarily soothes select facial muscles to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the upper third of the face.
Dysport® Cosmetic by Galderma
Similar to Botox®, Dysport® uses botulinum-A to treat wrinkles and fine lines around the forehead and eyes. This treatment temporarily relaxes facial muscles to help smooth expression lines. Dysport® takes less than five minutes to administer and carries no downtime.
Jeuveau® Cosmetic by Evolus
This injectable treatment uses Hi-Pure™ Technology to temporarily smooth out and relax the appearance of wrinkles between your eyebrows, also known as frown lines. Jeuveau® is performed in-office and only takes a few minutes to complete.
Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
Restylane® by Galderma
Restylane® is a facial filler that works to smooth facial wrinkles and fine lines. This line of FDA-approved fillers also helps to restore lost volume to areas such as the lips,mouth, nose and cheeks. Depending on what area of the face is being treated, this injectable can last between six to 12 months.
The full line of Restylane® injectables includes:
- Restylane®-L: Traditional Restylane with Lidocaine, useful for fine lines

Juvéderm® by Allergan
For those with moderate to severe wrinkles and fine lines, Juvéderm® is a cosmetic facial filler that is formulated to smooth and correct more stubborn areas of the face. This treatment sets itself apart from other fillers because it’s made with Hylacross™ technology, a smoother and less granular formula. It lasts up to a year and can improve facial lines and volume around the eyes, lips, cheeks and nose.
The full line of Juvéderm® facial fillers includes:
- Juvéderm® Ultra: Traditional Juvederm with Lidocaine, useful for fine lines

Non-Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
Radiesse® by Merz
As we age, we lose collagen which contributes to lost facial volume and elasticity. This treatment is made up of calcium hydroxyapatite and can help improve the appearance of your wrinkles while also refreshing your look at the same time.
Sculptra® by Dermik
Made up of poly-L-lactic acid, this facial filler is designed to restore lost volume and improve the appearance of deeper wrinkles and fine lines by stimulating the body’s natural production of collagen. This treatment does require multiple injections, but the results can last up to two years.
