Injectables

The term “injectables” can include neuromodulars such as Botox and Dysport as well as dermal fillers. Injectables are one of the most requested non-surgical procedures at Spectrum Plastic Surgery and they can be used to help a patient look younger, healthier, and happier. Our team of nurse injectors work with clients to determine their goals, lifestyle, and which injectables will meet their needs. Bear in mind that it’s not just the right injectable, but also the expertise of the injector that yields natural-looking, attractive results.

Botox

Botox injections around the eyes are also common to reduce unwanted crinkling and lines. One of the most common injection sites for neuromodulators is between the eyebrows to stop the two vertical lines (the “angry elevens”) from forming.

  • Removing wrinkles, lines, drooping, sagging skin, undereye bags, and reducing dark circles under the eyes

  • Improving vision when severe ptosis of the upper eyelid is present

  • Complementing other facial plastic procedures like brow lifts and facelifts and non-invasive treatments like FaceTite

Neuromodulators: Minimize Wrinkles, Folds, and Lines

Neuromodulators work by temporarily paralyzing specific muscles that cause wrinkles, folds, and lines. One of the most common injection sites for neuromodulators is between the eyebrows to stop the two vertical lines (the “angry elevens”) from forming. Botox injections around the eyes are also common to reduce unwanted crinkling and lines. However, neuromodulators also have various off-label uses such as preventing and treating migraines as well as reducing unwanted sweating.

All neuromodulators are temporary, providing results for approximately three months. When using these products to minimize lines and wrinkles, neuromodulators can also be a preventative treatment. Many younger clients opt for routine Botox and Dysport injections in order to “train” muscles to be less active. When wrinkles can be prevented and delayed rather than treated, the signs of aging can be slowed.

Dermal Fillers:
Add Volume and Contour

There are a variety of dermal fillers from popular and established makers such as Juvederm, Restylane, and Revanesse Versa. These dermal fillers are made with hyaluronic acid, which is a substance that occurs naturally in the body. Depending on the type of dermal filler selected, results can last anywhere from 3 – 12 months. Dermal fillers can be used to:

  • Restore volume in the cheeks

  • Fill in hollowness below the eyes

  • Plump and enhance lips

  • Restore youthful plumpness to the tops of the hands

Sculptra is a unique dermal filler because it uses poly-L-lactic acid instead of hyaluronic acid. Poly-L-lactic acid also occurs naturally in the body, but instead of immediately providing volume when injected, it works by encouraging the body to synthesize its own collagen in the treatment site. Sculptra results can last up to two years, but results are not immediate. However, many clients enjoy Sculptra because it fosters natural results.

Kybella:
Dissolve The Double Chin

There is also a relatively new injectable available, Kybella. Kybella dissolves unwanted adipose tissue beneath the chin, also known as submental fat, which causes the appearance of a double chin. A double chin, or buccula, can be genetic or more noticeable when a patient has a weak chin, and a person does not need to be overweight to have a buccula.

Kybella requires a series of treatments, usually 3 – 5, with several injections taking place during each appointment. This injectable uses deoxycholic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the body. When injected via the Kybella procedure, the acid dissolves excess fat in the days and weeks following the treatment. Results are permanent. It is critical to only work with a skilled who can achieve optimal results by dissolving just the right amount of fat.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is Kybella better than liposuction?2020-05-07T14:44:04-07:00

Kybella and liposuction yield similar results and both remove unwanted fat from below the chin. The primary difference between the two is the process by which the adipocytes are removed from the submental area. Kybella is preferred by patients who want to avoid surgery, the inherent risks of surgery, and the small incisions necessary for liposuction. However, one treatment is not necessarily better than the other.

Are there any side effects to injectables?2020-05-07T14:45:28-07:00

Injectables have been used by millions of people around the globe and most injectables have been available for several years. Spectrum Plastic Surgery only offers FDA-approved injectables that are deemed safe and effective.

Are Botox or dermal fillers better to help me look younger?2020-05-07T14:43:05-07:00

It depends on you and your unique aging process, but the answer for most clients is “both.” We often consider lines and wrinkles the first, most obvious signs of aging when in reality we are also losing volume in different parts of our face. A combination of Botox and dermal fillers is usually the best treatment plan for most patients, but the exact placement and amount of Botox, as well as the type of dermal filler, should be personalized for each person.

What if I want to reverse the results?2020-05-07T14:46:36-07:00

The vast majority of clients love their injectable results. However, Botox and dermal fillers are temporary and sometimes a client might choose to not undergo maintenance treatments. In the case of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, there are injections that can dissolve the product. Kybella is the only injectable treatment that is not reversible, which is why it is so important to only trust a nurse injector with immense skill in using deoxycholic acid to dissolve unwanted, excess submental fat.

Which dermal filler is best for me?2020-05-07T14:44:49-07:00

There are many effective dermal fillers available, and the best one for you depends on the treatment site, your goals, and how long you want results to last. Some patients prefer a dermal filler that lasts about three months so they can try out a new look. Others want semi-permanent results that last up to two years. A consultation is the best way to determine which dermal filler is the right fit for what you want to achieve.
