Cosmetic Injectable Fillers in Memphis, TN
There’s a complex network of structural elements in your skin that keep it looking firm, smooth, and youthful. These important components—collagen, hyaluronic acid (HA), and elastin, namely—combine to create a soft, healthy foundation for your skin. As you age, these structural proteins and building blocks are produced less by your body and begin to break down. Can you guess the result? Unevenly textured skin and the birth of wrinkles on your face and other areas of the body are the unfortunate byproduct of this natural process of aging.
At The Langsdon Clinic, nestled in the heart of old Germantown, TN on the southeast side of Memphis, we are passionate about helping our patients age more gracefully with the help of cosmetic injectable fillers. Your face is the centerpiece of nearly all the interactions you’ll ever have with other people, and our team of injectable dermal filler experts can help you put your best face forward every time. We offer the most advanced cosmetic injectable fillers administered in a safe, comfortable setting with Nurse Practitioner Carol Langsdon, RNP, BSN, an expert in facial aesthetics.

What Are Cosmetic Injectable Fillers?
As you get older, the most visible signs of aging will likely appear on your face. As your face loses its natural healthy volume, things like depressions on your cheeks, wrinkles, crow’s feet, and frown lines inevitably show up. With every passing year, your body breaks down and produces less of the important elements it needs to look youthful, vibrant, and smooth. That’s where dermal fillers come into play.
Injectable fillers, commonly called soft-tissue fillers, face fillers, or dermal fillers, are a quick, safe, convenient way to increase facial volume while also increasing collagen and elastin production naturally. Dermal fillers are approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and are primarily made of three basic ingredients:
- Biosynthetic polymer
- Hyaluronic acid (HA)
Although injectables are a low-risk, non-surgical procedure, you should choose an experienced professional to help you map out your treatment plan and schedule for the best results. In the United States, the only people who can administer injectable treatments are licensed medical professionals such as physicians, nurses (many of whom take additional training or earn special certifications), and physician assistants. Rest assured that you’ll be in good hands at The Langsdon Clinic. Nurse Practitioner Carol Langsdon RNP, BSN, is our advanced nurse injector and oversees our aesthetic treatments, including Botox®, dermal fillers, and many other advanced skin care treatments.
What Can Be Treated with Cosmetic Injectables?
Cosmetic injectables are a minimally invasive way to shape and sculpt the contours of your face by adding volume and filling in areas where structural proteins and subcutaneous fat has been lost. In addition to adding volume, injectables can also often help the skin accumulate and retain moisture so it keeps looking healthy and vibrant. In general, cosmetic injectables and fillers are used by physicians and aesthetic professionals to:
- Add volume to areas where there are facial depressions
- Smooth out wrinkles by increasing volume, collagen, and elastin
- Fill out thin, flat lips
- Reduce the appearance of certain types of scarring
- Improve the appearance of frown lines
- Smooth out crow’s feet
- Help even out skin texture from acne scarring
Some patients choose to have cosmetic injectables as a standalone treatment, while some patients choose to add cosmetic injectables to a more complete facial rejuvenation plan. The convenience, versatility, and long-lasting results of injectables make them a popular choice for our patients.
Cosmetic Injectables We Specialize In
Technically not a dermal filler, Botox® Cosmetic is an injectable used to treat forehead lines, crow’s feet, frown lines, and lines that form between your eyebrows. It works by targeting the muscles responsible for causing these unsightly facial lines.
One of the industry’s newer and most popular dermal fillers, Juvederm®‘s primary active ingredient is hyaluronic acid (HA). This substance is naturally found in your body and helps keep your skin hydrated while also adding volume to targeted areas. Many patients will notice results from Juvederm® right away with results that may last up to a year. Our practice also carries the Voluma™ XC, Vollure™ XC, and Volbella™ XC injectable products from Juvederm®.
At The Langsdon Clinic, we specialize in the Refyne, Defyne, Lyft, and Silk Restylane® fillers. Restylane® is made of hyaluronic acid and works well to fix moderate to severe wrinkles and folds. The results of Restylane® typically last about 6-12 months before additional treatments may be needed.
We use Scultpra® at The Langsdon Clinic to promote collagen growth safely and naturally. This cosmetic injectable is made of poly-L-lactic acid and can be used to treat deep signs of aging such as folds and wrinkles. Sculptra® results are long lasting and may last up to two years before additional treatments are needed.
This cosmetic injectable may be used on the face and other areas of the body such as the hands. Its primary active ingredient is a calcium-based substance called calcium hydroxylapetite (CaHa), which is similar to the calcium found in your body’s teeth and bones. It’s one of our leading choices for shaping contours of your face and may produce results that last about 9-15 months.
This popular injectable filler can be used to fill in deep wrinkles, lines, and folds on your face. It uses hyaluronic acid (HA) to increase skin moisture, add depth, and keep your skin looking natural and healthy. Belotero® immediately smooths skin after your treatment, with results lasting about 6 months or more.
