Cosmetic Injections Q & A

What are cosmetic injections?

Cosmetic injections contain specific substances, such as botulinum toxin or hyaluronic acid. Your provider places the injection just beneath the skin to reduce signs of aging and make skin imperfections more aesthetically pleasing.

What are the benefits of cosmetic injections?

When choosing cosmetic injectables as part of your anti-aging regimen, you can reap the following benefits:

  • Fewer fine lines and wrinkles
  • Tighter skin
  • Restored facial volume
  • Smoother lines
  • Fewer vertical lip lines
  • Improved facial symmetry
  • Younger-looking skin
  • Better skin hydration
  • Firmer skin

Cosmetic injections are noninvasive and take just minutes to complete. Choosing injectables over invasive surgery is more cost-effective without downtime.

What are the different types of cosmetic injectables?

Numerous cosmetic injectables enhance your unique beauty. Your practitioner lets you know which one best matches your personalized needs based on your skin type and desired outcome. They might recommend:

Botox®

Botox uses botulinum toxin to paralyze facial muscles and reduce fine lines caused by frowning, smiling, and squinting. Botox injections can last roughly three to six months.

Xeomin®

Xeomin is similar to Botox. It works on muscles under your skin to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles caused by facial expressions. Xeomin injections can last three to four months.

Radiesse®

Radiesse is a volumizing filler that restores your skin’s youthful look. Radiesse injections last up to 18 months.

Juvéderm®

Juvéderm is a filler made of hyaluronic acid. Your practitioner uses it to treat moderate-to-severe wrinkles. It plumps up wrinkled skin, adds volume to lips, defines lip lines, and lifts creased skin near your mouth. Juvéderm injectables can last up to a year.

Versa™

Like Juvéderm, Versa is a filler made of hyaluronic acid that plumps your skin. Its results last up to a year.

Belotero®

Belotero is an injectable filler your provider uses to diminish fine lines. Treatment can last up to six months.

Kybella®

Kybella is a cosmetic injectable that reduces moderate-to-severe fat cells located just beneath your chin (double chin). With a healthy lifestyle, Kybella results are permanent as destroyed fat cells don’t return.

What should I expect during the procedure?

Your practitioner reviews your medical history and examines your skin prior to delivering your cosmetic injections. They numb the treatment area and inject a substance into or just beneath the skin. 

The procedure takes just minutes, and you can resume normal, everyday activities right after the procedure.
