Choosing the Right Injectable

Choosing the Right Injectable

With so many injectables now available, it can be difficult to know which one is best for you. They can replace lost volume to help smooth wrinkles, plump lips, and restore a more youthful appearance and each product is uniquely formulated to have a certain texture, density, and injection depth – so certain injectables work better for certain areas of concern than others.

So how do you know what to choose?

At Skintastic, we’ve been designated an Official Training Facility by Allergan, makers of BOTOX® and JUVÉDERM®, wherein we supervise and instruct other physicians in the proper administration of the Allergan anti-aging treatment line. We have the experience and expertise to customize your anti-aging treatment plan to make sure you have the best results for a smooth, rejuvenated look using any of the following:

BOTOX®

BOTOX® – effective in treating many non-cosmetic concerns such as facial muscle spasms, excessive perspiration and migraines – is especially effective in reducing dynamic wrinkles of the face. BOTOX® treatments are administered with an extremely fine needle directly into the targeted facial muscle. The protein then blocks the transmission from the nerve ending to the targeted muscle so the treated muscle relaxes and the dynamic wrinkle is softened, lasting anywhere from two to six months.

KYBELLA™

KYBELLA™ is the first and only FDA-approved nonsurgical treatment that contours and improves the appearance and profile of moderate to severe submental fullness – or a ‘double chin.’ When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells and once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin – permanently. Each treatment session with KYBELLA™ is typically 15 to 20 minutes, administered right here in our office.

JUVÉDERM®

JUVÉDERM® is a ‘next generation’ smooth, long-lasting hyaluronic acid gel dermal filler. In the body, hyaluronic acid fills the space between collagen and elastin fibers of the skin, and acts to attract and bind water to hydrate the skin resulting in smoothness and volume. But as we age, our bodies produce less hyaluronic acid, resulting in the loss of skin volume. JUVÉDERM® has the highest concentration of hyaluronic acid and a smoother formulation for results that can last up to one year with natural, even-filling effects.

VOLUMA™

The first of its kind, JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ is a hyaluronic acid facial filler specifically made to restore age-related volume loss in the cheeks, cheekbones and around the chin. JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ uses hyaluronic acid, a sugar that occurs naturally in your skin, to instantly restore lost facial volume in the cheeks and contour the chin, restoring smooth, natural-looking fullness to sunken cheeks and firmness to a softening jawline for up to 18 months with no downtime.

VOLBELLA

JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® is a dermal filler used for lip augmentation by adding fullness to the lips, contouring to the lips, and minimizes lines around the mouth with instant, natural results. With its smooth gel-like consistency, JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® also features a proprietary form of hyaluronic acid, a sugar that occurs naturally in the body, for enhanced longevity and natural results. A versatile and effective injectable, it also contains a small amount of lidocaine to minimize the minor discomforts often associated with treatment.
