Injectables & Fillers

Affordable and natural-looking face rejuvenation in Nashville & Memphis

Easy Face Rejuvenation with Injectables & Fillers

Injectables and fillers are FDA-approved medicines that are injected into the face for temporary rejuvenation. They are not permanent but can last up to 9 months. 

An injectable wrinkle remover can smooth out moderate to severe frown lines on your forehead and upper part of the face. Dermal fillers are typically used in the lower part of the face to reduce deep lines around the mouth or to plump up the lips.

We carry all major filler and injectable brands and invite you to call us in Nashville or Memphis for an appointment.

Each patient is unique. Our plastic surgeon will meet with you in a consultation to develop a personalized treatment plan.

Frequently Asked Questions

What we call injectable is the medication botulinum toxin to freeze your facial muscles to keep you from frowning, thereby eliminating your wrinkles. It works best on the upper part of your face, especially the forehead and around the eyes.

A filler, also called facial filler or dermal filler, is also injected, but it is a substance that expands to fill out an area. It works best to fill deep creases such as the nasolabial folds (the lines left and right of the mouth), to plump up the lips, and to alleviate bags under the eyes. 

No. Both are temporary solutions. A round of injectables will result in a smoother look for approximately 4-6 months, while fillers will last up to 9 months.

The effects of injectable to reduce wrinkles begin to show within 3-5 days and will become most noticeable between 1-2 weeks. The exact timing varies from patient to patient and depends on your age, skin condition, and skin type.

Dermal fillers on the other hand work instantly so that you will see the result immediately after the injection. It does take up to 4 weeks for the filler to fully integrate into the tissue, depending on the type of filler used.

Studies indeed have shown that starting BOTOX injections as early as in your 20s and 30s may slow down the future forming of permanent wrinkles.

But should you start BOTOX on your 20th birthday? Not necessarily. Throughout your twenties, your skin has enough volume and elasticity that it can withstand the activity of your underlying muscles. It makes sense to wait until the skin begins to lose volume and thickness, between 30 and 40 years old. You’ll save money by only starting with Botox when you really need it and have the means to see a professional board-certified plastic surgeon on a regular basis.

Especially when treating an area as sensitive as your face, it is important to select a professional medical practice with years of experience in cosmetic surgery. At NuBody Concepts, all injectables are administered by an experienced plastic surgeon or a certified nurse injector. Learn more about our surgeons and nurse injectors.

Botulinum toxin has been FDA-approved and widely used for a long time, and is very safe. As with any medical procedure, there may be some side effects. Some patients experience temporary redness and swelling at the injection site, but this is rare. An inexperienced injector may overdo the dose which can result in arched eyebrows or similar effects. This is why it is important to receive injections from an experienced plastic surgeon or injector nurse.

We carry Juvederm (including Volbella, Vollure, and Voluma) as well as Versa fillers. This may depend on provider preference so please make sure you ask if you’re looking for a specific filler.

You can also use your own fat as a natural filler by removing it from your waistline with liposuction

No. If administered inexpertly, BOTOX can leave you with a stiff, “plastic” appearance. This is often exaggerated for entertainment value in TV shows and movies. But most cosmetic surgeons are very skilled in administering an injectable strategically to maintain a natural look that leaves you able to smile or show fear and excitement as you normally would.
