Injectable treatments are creating waves in the field of aesthetic medicine, quickly replacing the need for invasive surgery as a means for beautification with fast, effective, and non-invasive care that gives great results. With new and improved technology that makes creating a whole new you possible, care at the doctor’s office involves a shorter time frame with little to no downtime.
Injectable treatments, including neuromodulators, dermal fillers, collagen stimulators, and more, are ideal for improving facial contours and filling in loose skin while increasing the volume and contours of the face. At The Skin Studios, we provide a welcoming team of skin care experts to lend you expert advice on seeking corrective therapy from a list of options. Give Allison Clement, MD, and Amber Littlefield, FNP-C, at The Skin Studios a call at (337) 474-1220 to schedule an appointment and find out how injectable treatments can effectively improve your appearance today.
Also referred to as botulinum toxin, Botox is a purified protein injectable used to reduce the appearance of moderate to severe dynamic wrinkles, including forehead lines, lines between the eyebrows known as the “11s,” and crow’s feet. As a neuromodulator, Botox also quells conditions such as hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), by blocking the signal from the nerve to the muscle.
Botox works by temporarily relaxing the muscles of the body to reduce wrinkles and frown lines. We precisely target the muscles responsible for creating these wrinkles, allowing the skin to smooth out while still allowing our patients to make their natural expressions. When done correctly by an expert injector, Botox should never make a person look “frozen.”
Botox injectable treatments take about 10 minutes to perform. As with any injectable, it is recommended that a consultation with an experienced professional be scheduled before neuromodulator treatment to determine the appropriate dosage and placement. Learn more about Botox at BotoxCosmetic.com.
Juvéderm is a gel filler made with hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found within the skin. This injectable treatment can restore youthful volume to skin that has begun to sag, and is a great option for reducing the appearance of nasolabial folds and marionette lines. Juvederm can also be used to plump the lips and soften perioral lines, also known as “smoker’s lines.” It is also a great way to help reduce the appearance of dark circles under the eyes.
The area of your face and dermal filler injectable technique will determine how long the results last. After the initial injection period, patients may require less product to achieve continuous results.
Most injectable hyaluronic acid dermal fillers require following the contours of the face for the most natural look possible. At The Skin Studios, a simple injectable treatment can bring out your natural beauty in a short period of time.
Aging causes a loss of volume, resulting in saggy, flattened skin. Voluma injectable dermal fillers achieve cheek volume restoration utilizing a fine needle that injects hyaluronic acid exclusively into the midpoints of the face, resulting in a lifted, fuller appearance.
As part of the Juvéderm family, the Voluma injectable works exclusively as a cheek filler, refining the look of saggy skin. Results are seen within the same day of skin care treatment. Though minimally invasive, Voluma can cause some redness, swelling, and potential bruising, so we recommend allowing a period of at least a few days to a week before you need to attend any major events.
The dermal filler team at The Skin Studios is here to help. Dr. Clement and Nurse Practitioner Littlefield specialize in injectable dermal filler treatments and will help you put your best face forward using customized Voluma injections, offering the best look to suit your unique needs.
Radiesse is a non-surgical injectable dermal filler used by those seeking a diminished appearance of moderate to severe wrinkles, deep folds, and laugh lines, as well as loss of volume on the back of the hands. It is formulated with calcium hydroxylapatite, which stimulates collagen production in the skin, allowing for continual improvement and long-lasting results.
Radiesse is a good option for people with significant volume loss in the face or on the hands. In addition to restoring lost volume, it can also be used to help augment the cheekbones or the chin for a more defined facial contour.
For those with mild to moderate under chin fat, Kybella is an injectable that melts away submental fat using deoxycholic acid. It can be a great option for patients who are bothered by a double chin but don’t want to have an invasive liposuction procedure. Kybella may require anywhere from 3 to 6 sessions for full results, depending on the individual. During your initial consultation, your doctor will let you know approximately how many injectable treatments you will need for optimal results.
Volbella is designed to mainly treat around lips and under the eyes. Introduced in Paris in 2014 and approved for use by the FDA in 2016, the hyaluronic acid injectable dermal filler Juvederm Volbella has received rave reviews from patients and doctors alike across Europe and Canada.
As you age, you lose volume in your skin, which results in wrinkles, lines, and creases, especially on your face. Around the mouth, your lips thin out and lose definition around their borders. Furthermore, marionette lines develop and smoker’s lines form.
Volbella lip enhancer is designed to treat these signs of age. Volbella injectable treatment results include smoothing perioral lines due to pursing your lips frequently, plumping marionette lines leading from the edge of your lips to your chin, correcting the downturn of the corners of your lips that gives you the appearance of a permanent frown, enhancing your cupid’s bow in the center of your upper lip, and adding contour to your lips by accentuating the outline of your lips.
Many people forego a trip to the doctor’s office thinking there is no viable solution to their dermal woes. However, there are countless solutions that can be implemented for beautiful, radiant skin that doesn’t involve the use of a scalpel, such as injectable treatments.
The Skin Studios offers precise results using gentle techniques like injectables that work wonders to help revive, lift and tighten the skin, all within the same day so that you can get on with your life.
If you are suffering from wrinkles, sagging, lines, chin fat or any other distressing condition, then you need a board-certified injectable skin care expert.
