Cosmetic Injectables in Clearwater
What are Cosmetic Injectables?
Cosmetic injectables are non-surgical treatments that help you achieve a more refreshed, rejuvenated, and youthful appearance. These minimally invasive injectables deliver noticeable, encouraging results. By targeting specific areas of concern, cosmetic injectables treat a variety of issues—crow’s feet around the eyes, frown lines on the forehead, and nasolabial folds around the mouth, just to name a few.
What Types of Injectables Are Available at Egozi Plastic Surgery?
Egozi Plastic Surgery is proud to offer a wide range of cosmetic injectables. If your skin has lost its elasticity, and if you’re looking for a fantastic way to improve skin texture, smooth your complexion, and restore lost volume, we encourage you to learn more about these injectables offered at Egozi Plastic Surgery:
Botox can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines caused by repetitive muscle contractions. The main ingredient in Botox is the botulinum toxin, which is the same toxin responsible for botulism (food poisoning). Have no fear: in the cosmetic industry, this neurotoxic protein is used in small, precise doses to effectively block nerve signals so your muscles can relax and allow your fine lines and wrinkles to fade.
Injectable fillers are specialized formulations that contain proven, potent ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and collagen. Hyaluronic acid excels in maintaining optimal skin hydration by attracting and retaining moisture, while collagen helps restore your skin’s firmness and elasticity. These and other ingredients used in injectable fillers offer a versatile and customizable approach to facial rejuvenation.
According to their official website, JUVÉDERM® injectables contain a modified form of hyaluronic acid, which they define as “a naturally occurring substance that keeps skin moisturized and soft.” The JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® XC injectable filler can be injected into the lips to correct perioral lines as well as underneath the eyes to diminish the appearance of undereye hollowing. JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA® XC can be injected into the chin and/or cheeks to restore lost volume in those areas. JUVÉDERM® VOLLURE® XC can treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, as this filler targets laugh lines, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines. JUVÉDERM® injectable fillers can lift and contour, add definition, and/or restore volume; which one is right for you will depend on your desired outcomes and the specific area(s) you wish to address.
Lip fillers are another type of cosmetic injectable offered at Egozi Plastic Surgery. These types of cosmetic injectables soften lines around the mouth and enhance the natural contours of your lips. Lip fillers complement other injectables by helping you achieve a well-rounded look that brings out your natural beauty while helping to make fine lines and wrinkles become less of a focal point.
A liquid facelift utilizes a carefully curated selection of cosmetic injectables to address signs of aging. A liquid facelift is designed to add volume to areas where your skin is loose or sagging. These injectables can combat problematic areas by lifting and plumping skin and creating youthful contours in the process. Liquid facelifts are appealing not only because of the results they deliver but also the minimal recovery time compared to traditional surgical procedures.
Radiesse injectable fillers contain an ingredient known as calcium hydroxylapatite, or CaHA. According to their official website, Radiesse “is the first and only CaHA portfolio available that provides both immediate, natural-looking results and long-term improvement—a year or more in many patients.” CaHA can address fine lines and wrinkles by providing immediate contouring as well as stimulating collagen and elastin production.
Renuva targets volume loss in your temples, cheeks, nasolabial folds, and neck. This innovative injectable makes it possible for your body’s own fat to be redistributed. Renuva’s official website states that “Renuva contains the same collagens, growth factors and proteins as your own fat. When injected, Renuva is gradually replaced with your own fat cells over the next few months. Post injection, new blood vessels and fat cell formation results in volume restoration–which helps you look natural, youthful and healthy.”
Restylane’s line of cosmetic injectables includes Restylane Silk, Restylane Lyft, Restylane Defyne, and Restylane Refyne. Restylane Silk provides lip augmentation and corrects perioral wrinkles, while Restylane Lyft adds volume and lift to the cheeks and other areas of your face. Restylane Defyne can smooth out deep laugh lines, while Restylane Refyne softens laugh lines and reduces wrinkles. All of Restylane’s cosmetic injectables contain hyaluronic acid, the powerful ingredient that promotes skin hydration. Each formulation caters to specific aesthetic goals. Restylane’s official website contains more information about their family of products.
Sculptra stimulates collagen production. According to Sculptra’s official website, this biostimulatory aesthetic injectable smooths facial wrinkles and improves skin tightness. Collagen is an important part of the skin’s structural framework because this fibrous protein provides strength, elasticity, and support. Aging, sun exposure, and environmental stressors can lead to a natural decline in collagen production and contribute to the development of fine lines and wrinkles.

Cosmetic Injectables FAQs
At Egozi Plastic Surgery, we recognize that individuals interested in cosmetic injectables will have questions about their effectiveness, safety, and longevity. We hope this FAQ section addresses some questions you may have about cosmetic injectables.
How long do cosmetic fillers last?
Cosmetic fillers last anywhere between several months to well over a year, depending on the type of filler you receive, how many injections you receive, and the severity of the areas that are being targeted. Additional injection sessions are typically recommended to sustain optimal results over time. Dr. Egozi can give you a specific timeline regarding how long you can expect your results to last.
What is the most popular cosmetic injection?
The most popular cosmetic injection on the market is Botox. This is on account of its effectiveness as well as how long Botox has been available; Botox was approved for use in the cosmetic industry by the FDA in 2002. Ever since, patients have been receiving Botox injections to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Which is cheaper, Botox or Fillers?
It’s difficult to pinpoint which treatment is cheaper because no two patients are alike. One patient, for example, might need a few Botox injections to achieve their desired results, while another might take a combination approach when it comes to injectable fillers. In this case, the injectable fillers would be more expensive. The price you pay for Botox or fillers will reflect the number of injections you receive. At Egozi Plastic Surgery, we believe in offering our patients fair and transparent pricing.
What happens when fillers wear off?
When you start to notice that the results of your filler are wearing off, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with Dr. Egozi. He can conduct an evaluation, discuss your needs and goals, and recommend the next steps; in most cases, you’ll be advised to receive more injections so you can continue to enjoy your results.
Are cosmetic fillers safe?
All of the injectables we offer at Egozi Plastic Surgery have been approved by the FDA. Cosmetic fillers are safe when they are delivered by an experienced injector like Dr. Egozi, who knows exactly where to deliver the injections and can also determine how many injections you’ll need to see the most exquisite results.
Are dermal fillers permanent?
Dermal fillers are not permanent, but they do provide long-lasting results. The only way to achieve permanent results when it comes to combating signs of aging—including fine lines and wrinkles—is to undergo plastic surgery; a facelift is a surgical intervention that can remove sagging skin and address other common issues. Even though dermal fillers are not permanent, their transformative impact on areas of concern is undeniable, and they are especially ideal for those who want a cost-effective, non-surgical solution with minimal downtime.
What is the more effective approach to reduce dark circles underneath and wrinkles around the eyes: cosmetic injections or creams?
You might be wondering if you should invest in creams or cosmetic injections if you have fine lines, wrinkles, and/or dark circles under your eyes. Your decision should be based on your budget and your desired outcomes. If you opt for an eye cream, choose one that contains ingredients such as retinol, vitamin C, or hyaluronic acid. Creams containing retinoids and peptides can address fine lines and wrinkles, but do keep in mind that creams can only go so far in terms of giving you the results you want. This is where cosmetic injections come in; fine lines, wrinkles, and dark circles that are rather pronounced will benefit most from cosmetic injections because injectables involve inserting potent ingredients directly underneath your skin tissue; compared to eye creams, cosmetic injections are going to offer you more noticeable, immediate, and long-lasting results.
Why is it important to get cosmetic fillers from a licensed aesthetician?
According to American Board of Facial Cosmetic Surgery, “Board-certified facial cosmetic surgeons have a deep understanding of facial anatomy and physiology to place your injections so that your results appear natural and potential side effects are minimized.” It’s imperative that you receive cosmetic injections from a licensed aesthetician or a board-certified plastic surgeon who will take a careful, meticulous approach in a clean, clinical setting and ensure that your health and safety are prioritized from start to finish.
