Botox & Fillers
Injectables deal with three types of issues. Dynamic wrinkles are created by movement. Static wrinkles are present when our faces are at rest. Volume loss is due to aging. Each is correctable with a customized plan for your face.
Dynamic wrinkles are corrected using a neurotoxin such as Botox. Results are seen in 3-7 days and typically last for 3-5 months.
Static wrinkles are corrected with hyaluronic fillers. Results are seen immediately and typically last for 6-9 months.
Volume loss can be corrected with hyaluronic fillers but for a more lasting solution a collagen stimulating filler such as Bellafill. Results are seen immediately and can last up to 5 years.
Not all injectable experiences are the same. Suji Park-Idler, MD administers injectables with a light touch. The goal is to remove wrinkles without a frozen look or heavy feeling and add fullness without looking fake. Most fillers will fill lines and wrinkles in less than 30 minutes with results that can last from four months to more than a year.

When you decide that you want to improve or regain some aspect of your looks through an injectable you should pinpoint exactly what you want to have change. One of the benefits of working with Refinery is that we can develop the correct plan for your needs. Many things need to be taken into consideration – bone density, volume loss, underlying ligament structure – pair this with the variety of products that are available and it becomes a decision that expert help is valuable.
Each of the products that are available are approved for different placement and usages. Some have been in use in other countries for years and are only recently becoming available to the American public. The viscosity, density and binding of them create different effects. Let us educate you on your face and recommend a course of action that achieves your goals.
Ethnicity should be considered along with skin type, gender and definitions of “improved beauty”. Here at Refinery we do not want cookie-cutter results. We want you to be the restored or improved you with symmetry, function and beauty in both repose and action. When something doesn’t look natural, it does not enhance beauty. Barbie does not exist and we will not help in creating “barbie-like” people. The beauty of a person is in their uniqueness and inner confidence.
