The Benefits of Injectable Cosmetic Treatments

Injectable cosmetic fillers and treatments have grown to be a popular alternative to cosmetic surgery among patients who are looking to slow down the hands of time. As we age, our skin starts to show signs of aging in the form of fine lines, wrinkles, and under eye bags. Cosmetic injections and dermal fillers help fight the signs of aging and can take years off a patient’s appearance. We all want to age gracefully, and with the help of injectable cosmetic treatments and fillers, you can do just that.

What are neuro-inhibitors & How Does It Work?

Many of our patients have heard of neuro-inhibitor treatment but don’t fully understand what it is or how the procedure works to make our skin appear more youthful. Both treatments contain a purified protein that is used to inhibit the movement of the muscles in the face. By limiting the movement that creates the wrinkles, our skin is able to smooth itself out. Contrary to popular belief, neuro-inhibitor treatments are fast and almost painless. The procedure consists of a few quick injections around a patient’s trouble areas.

Common trouble areas where neuro-inhibitor treatment would be recommended:

  • Forehead
  • Glabella
  • Brow lift
  • Bunny lines
  • Masseter muscles (square jawline)
  • Oral commissures & chin
  • Platysmal bands (neck)
  • Treatment of hyperhidrosis (palms and underarms)

Understanding Kybella Treatment

Sometimes wrinkles and fine lines are not the issue. Some patients struggle with the accumulation of fat cells in the face that cause submental fullness — commonly referred to as a “double chin.” Kybella is an FDA-approved non-surgical treatment that is designed to permanently destroy the fat cells that cause submental fullness.

For optimal results, the treatment is typically recommended to be given as a series of injections spaced one month apart. During your consultation, one of our healthcare professionals will determine the total number of sessions that will be necessary to achieve your desired results. Typically 2-4 treatment sessions are needed to obtain the optimal results of a contoured chin profile.

A Deeper Look at Cosmetic Fillers

Cosmetic fillers are used to help lift and smooth lines in the face by replacing volume and hydrating skin. Our main line of cosmetic fillers come in the form of a colorless gel and are made of hyaluronic acid. The hyaluronic acid is a substance that naturally occurs in your skin and helps to add volume and hydration. They can be used to lift and contour cheeks, smooth lines, and plump lips. The results of the procedure can last from 1 to 2 years depending on what dermal filler is used.
