Injectables: What Are My Options?

SERVING PHOENIX, SCOTTSDALE, AND NEARBY AREAS OF ARIZONA

There are various types of injectables that you can choose to achieve a more youthful, balanced, or beautiful look. With many injectable products to choose from, it’s important that the correct option is selected for your goals. The best approach is to consult a certified plastic surgeon to discuss your options. Before you schedule your appointment, however, here are some basics regarding injectable options. 

What are Injectables?

Typically, injectables are chemical substances that an aesthetician or plastic surgeon places into your skin using a needle. Injectables serve to reverse aging signs and promoting a youthful appearance. This can be achieved through increasing volume and firmness through fillers or softening lines through neuromodulators. 

Which Injectable is Best for Me?

Each injectable has specific indications that benefit specific patients. For example, if you want fuller lips, one of the soft fillers would be an excellent option for you. On the other hand, a neuromodulator (like Botox) would be more appropriate if your goal is to reduce wrinkles. Talk to your plastic surgeon or nurse injector to outline a plan and choose an injectable that best suits your individual goals.

Which Injectables are Available at Mosharrafa Plastic Surgery?

Mosharrafa Plastic Surgery offers three types of well-received treatment options: dermal fillers, Botox, and Kybella. These three categories have very different purposes, so patients should review them to determine which might be right for them.

 

Kybella

Kybella is a non-surgical procedure that works by breaking down fat with the help of deoxycholic acid. In that case, if you have a double chin, the injectable will do you some good since it will remove the fat. In addition to that, you need to have firm skin so that you can enjoy excellent results.

If you’re hesitant about the downtime and anesthesia required for liposuction, Kybella is the best option since it is non-invasive. Other procedures that complement the injectable are dermal fillers that promote sculpting, and Venus Freeze that contours and softens the skin.

Botox

The Botox procedure is utterly popular across the globe as it is a highly effective option for softening wrinkles. Patients who desire youthful and smooth skin should consider the injectable. Also known as a neuromodulator, Botox works by blocking chemical signals in the brain that cause movements and extreme facial expressions that result in wrinkles.

On that account, if you have fine lines and wrinkles, Botox is often an ideal option since it will slow down the aging process. To achieve an exceptional outcome, you can add laser treatments, chemical peels, and dermal fillers to Botox. These combinations offer enhanced results and a rejuvenated, youthful appearance. 

Dermal Fillers

As you age, the volume of your skin decreases, leading to hollowness and wrinkles as well. For that reason, dermal fillers restore the skin vibrancy and fill in areas of lost volume, decreasing the appearance of wrinkles. You can complement dermal fillers using Botox, Venus Freeze, laser resurfacing, micro-needling, and chemical peels.

In addition to aging signs, dermal fillers can be useful for nonsurgical augmentations to areas including the lips, nose, cheeks, or chin and jawline. These results are temporary but do not require the downtime or anesthesia of surgery. 

The right candidates for dermal fillers are those with a small chin, thin lips, marionette lines, or nasolabial folds. Also, if you have vertical lip lines with sunken temples and cheeks, the non-surgical procedure will boost the volume in these areas.
