INJECTABLE TREATMENTS

Medical Aesthetics MA - Injectable Treatments

NEUROTOXINS

Neurotoxins are injectable solutions (Botox®/DySport®/Xeomin®) that temporarily block nerve receptors in the muscle, preventing lines and wrinkles from forming. A lip flip is a quick, in-office cosmetic procedure that lasts about 10 to 20 minutes that involves the injection of Botox® into your Cupid’s bow, which is the middle of your upper lip, and into the corners of your mouth. The injection temporarily relaxes the muscles around your lip which causes the part of your upper lip that’s inside your mouth to “flip” upward and outward, giving your lip a fuller appearance. BRO-TOX is Injections for men can subtly diminish lines around the eyes, across the forehead, and between the brows without sacrificing the rugged, masculine look many male patients wish to preserve. Baby Botox® is spread across the face in smaller amounts and may be best suited for people who want to get a head start on anti-aging measures or those who have lighter lines. Baby Botox® works best for younger patients, or patients who have less defined/etched lines.

FILLERS

Whether you want to add volume to your cheeks, fill in the "hollowness" under your eyes, have plumper lips, or help smooth out the lines in your face, Dermal fillers (Juvederm®/Restalyne®) may be what you are looking for. Fillers can be used to Plump thin lips, Enhance shallow contours, Rejuvenate eyes, Soften facial creases and wrinkles and Improve the appearance of recessed scars.

SCULPTRA®

Sculptra® is a biostimulator that is injected into the deep layer of the skin where collagen naturally exists and is made. Sculptra® works by initially filling a wrinkle, while stimulating your body’s natural production of collagen and elastin. This reinforced collagen structure provides a foundation that gradually restores the look of fullness of your shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds that has been depleted over time. A full treatment of Sculptra® Aesthetic (an average of three injection sessions over a few months) can last up to two years.

KYBELLA®

The active ingredient in KYBELLA® a is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.

SCLEROTHERAPY

Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure administered by your healthcare provider to treat uncomplicated spider veins and uncomplicated reticular veins. The treatment involves the injection of a solution into affected veins. Sclerotherapy involves injecting a solution directly into the vein and area of focus. The injected solution causes the vein to scar, which forces blood to reroute through healthier veins. The collapsed vein is reabsorbed into local tissue and eventually fades. After treatment, veins tend to fade within a few weeks. It may take a month or more to see full results. In some cases, several treatments may be needed.
