First, a vocab lesson!
Did you know all the different types of wrinkles and fine lines on your skin have names? There are two general types of wrinkles: static and dynamic.
Dynamic wrinkles appear when we use facial expressions to emote, but they go away when our faces revert to neutral.
Static wrinkles, on the other hand, are permanent indentations left by expressions we make, like smiling, laughing, frowning, or squinting. Over time, our skin loses collagen and elasticity, which causes skin to loosen and sag, resulting in more prominent static wrinkles. Let’s take a look at some of the different subtypes of wrinkles and lines.
These are the lines or indentations that form from the corner of your nose to the corner of your mouth. They are also referred to as smile lines or laugh lines, as they tend to be more prominent while expressing those emotions.
Horizontal wrinkles on the forehead are some of the most common signs of aging. Expressions of surprise where you raise your eyebrows cause these wrinkles to become static over time.
The fine lines that radiate out from the corners of the eyes are referred to as crow’s feet. Smiling, laughing, and squinting cause these lines to form.
Aptly named worry lines form between the eyebrows and look like the number eleven. They are called worry lines because when you express concern, the eyebrows typically squeeze together, causing those little lines to appear.
These lines run vertically on either side of the mouth, imitating the mouth of a marionette puppet (hence the name). The skin around your mouth is thinner, making it even more prone to wrinkles and lines as it ages.
These are the fine lines radiating from around the mouth. They often resemble little barcodes! They form from pursing your lips.
Now that you understand the difference between wrinkles, we can get into how to treat them!
Injectables | What are they?
An injectable treatment is a non-invasive, in-office aesthetic procedure used to reverse signs of aging like wrinkles, fine lines, and volume loss. Injectables can also correct crookedness or bumpiness on the nose! An expert injectors use a small needle to inject the desired area with a substance typically made of either hyaluronic acid or calcium hydroxyapatite.

BOTOX® is perhaps the most recognizable brand name of a specific botulinum neurotoxin. It is one of four FDA-approved botulinum neurotoxins in the United States, with the other three being Dysport, Xeomin, and Jeuveau. The main purpose of all four of these products is to prevent and soothe wrinkles and fine lines on the face and neck!
BOTOX® works by blocking nerve impulses that make the muscles contract. If the muscles can’t contract, the overlying skin lays flat and looks smooth. This can also prevent further wrinkles from forming!
- Forehead lines and wrinkles
- Lines and wrinkles between the eyebrows
- Crow’s feet
- Fine lines around the mouth
- Neck rings
During your initial consultation, we will ask you to make a series of facial expressions. Your expert BOTOX® injector will carefully study your expressions to determine exact placement and amount of BOTOX® for your desired results.

Dermal filler injectables in Carmel
As we age, we lose vital proteins like collagen and elastin. These are responsible for the elasticity and firmness of our skin. Think of them like a box spring where the framework is the collagen and the springs are the elastin. They give shape to our skin and keep it looking plump, firm, and healthy!
When our body naturally slows down production of these proteins, the skin begins to sag around the skeletal structure, resulting in hollow areas often around the cheeks and on the hands. This sagging of the skin, known as skin laxity, is also responsible for the worsening of wrinkles and fine lines.
Dermal fillers build back the structure of your skin to give you a more youthful appearance! Our expert injectors use a small, sterile needle to strategically inject the filler into the subdermal layers of skin on your face or hands.
Different kinds of fillers contain different substances. Here are the fillers we offer at Turkle & Associates:
This dermal filler injectable in Carmel is made of a substance called hyaluronic acid, another naturally occuring substance. It is ultra-hydrating and has tons of awesome anti-aging effects. Juvederm is considered the gold-standard for dermal filler injectables, and there are a few different options for injections, which include:
Good for smoothing nasolabial folds, parentheses lines, and marionette lines
Juvederm Voluma XC
Volumizes the cheeks
Juvederm Volbella XC
Repairs lost volume in the lips
Juvederm Vollure XC
Beneficial for nasolabial folds, parentheses lines, marionette lines, and the lips
The RHA injectable collection is a resilient hyaluronic acid injectable in Carmel that allows for flawless and dynamic results. This line of injectables is perfect for those who desire natural facial expression without visible signs of aging.
Radiesse is made of calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) gel microspheres, which contain ions of phosphate and calcium. Phosphate and calcium both naturally occur in the body.
Radiesse is a particularly effective treatment because over time it actually induces the body’s natural growth of collagen, and eventually the CaHa absorbs back into your body with no health risks. The collagen your body naturally produced remains, giving your skin natural volume!
Belotero is an injectable hyaluronic acid product that soothes superficial lines. It It is a great starting place for those new to injectables in Carmel!
BOTOX® vs. fillers
Both BOTOX® and fillers serve similar, though not identical, purposes. BOTOX® overall is better suited for treating wrinkles and fine lines caused by muscle movements. Alternatively, fillers add volume to depressed or hollowed areas and enhance bone structure. Take a look at our recommendations for which to use.

KYBELLA is an injectable in Carmel that tackles unwanted, excess fat under the chin. KYBELLA gets rid of under chin fat by using a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a substance that breaks down and destroys fat cells.
Following a series of KYBELLA injections, the unwanted fat cells break down, and the body naturally disposes of them. You may receive up to 6 treatment sessions spaced at least 1 month apart. Most patients experience visible results in 2 to 4 KYBELLA treatments. When these fat cells are destroyed they will not return, so say goodbye to that double chin for good!
KYBELLA injectable treatment typically takes around 10 to 20 minutes, and there is absolutely no downtime associated with it. However, you may experience slight swelling following your procedure.
An ideal candidate for KYBELLA injections is someone who has enough elasticity of the skin for it to reconform. You and your doctor will discuss your candidacy at your initial consultation.
Non surgical nose job
A fan-favorite procedure, the non surgical rhinoplasty helps correct the appearance of mild crookedness of the nose. Your expert injector strategically places dermal fillers to reduce the appearance of bumps, raise or add definition to the tip of the nose, and make the nose appear straighter overall!
Commonly asked questions about injectables in Carmel
How long does it take to see results?
Typically, you can see results immediately following your first dermal filler injections! You can see BOTOX® results after a few days. Neurotoxins require some time to relax the underlying muscles, resulting in the relaxed appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Is there downtime associated with injectables?
Nope! You can go back to whatever you were doing before your appointment. However, depending on the type of injection and the placement, slight bruising or swelling may occur. Medications that thin the blood may increase the risk of bruising. If you are taking blood thinning medications, talk with your doctor before getting injectables in Carmel!
Do I need a follow up appointment?
Neurotoxins typically last between 2 to 4 months. We recommend follow up appointments every 3 months for the best results. When used long term, BOTOX® can actually prevent the formation of wrinkles.
Fillers generally last between 6 months to 2 years, depending on the type of filler and your unique metabolic rate!
