Injectables are used to relax facial wrinkles and folds (such as “smile lines” or “crows feet”, among other areas). Injectables can also be used to contour the body (such as reducing the appearance of a “double chin”). Further, injectables can improve the signs of facial fat loss by creating structure, framework and volume to the face and lips. There are different types of injectable aesthetic procedures that improve various areas of concern.

Renew Wellness & Aesthetics is home of The Natural Oklahoma Look™. We specialize in injectables to help you achieve your aesthetic goals and enhance your natural beauty. Many patients have heard of Botox which is a popular injectable. However, Renew also offers a variety of other injectables, including Dysport, Jeuveau, Juvederm, Restylane and Kybella.
Both Botox and filler are cosmetic treatments used to treat wrinkles and other imperfections. But, where Botox relaxes muscles and prevents fine lines and wrinkles from forming, fillers serve to lift and volumize problem areas.
Botox is not considered a dermal filler. Botox is an FDA- approved injectable which consists of a natural purified protein that relaxes muscles. When injected into the facial muscles, it softens fine lines and wrinkles and even prevents unwanted wrinkles from forming.
Both filler and Botox are FDA-approved for cosmetic use and are deemed safe aesthetic treatments.
The FDA has approved dermal fillers to be safe for use. Restylane was the first filler to be FDA approved in 2003, while Juvederm got its FDA approval back in 2006.
On average, anywhere between 0.5-2cc (half syringe to two syringes) of filler can typically be injected into the tear trough area. Many times, the injections are spaced out over 2 or 3 visits if needed. At Renew Wellness and Aesthetics, our providers perform a thorough physical exam of each patient’s facial anatomy, as not every patient is a candidate for tear trough filler.
Tear trough filler is often accompanied with cheek filler in order to help support the tear trough ligament and create a more beautiful result. In patients who are not deemed to be good candidates for tear trough filler, treatments such as Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) injections into the under-eye area and skin resurfacing lasers such as the Opus Plasma can give patients beautiful results in the tear trough area.
