The term “aesthetic injectables” refers to various treatments involving injecting medications or other substances into your facial tissues. These treatments have become incredibly popular in recent years. Many people prefer injectables over invasive surgical procedures.
Injectables are also more affordable than surgery and are an excellent fit for people who aren't good candidates for surgery. There is usually no need for any form of anesthesia and very little recovery time.
Botox is an injectable treatment created from a carefully controlled volume of a microbe that inhibits muscle movement. Treated facial muscles can create everyday facial expressions yet won’t have the strength to pull your skin into folds, lines, and wrinkles.
There are additional medications formulated from the same microbe. Each works in a similar manner as Botox, but there are subtle differences between each option.
Like dermal fillers, facial fat grafting is another minimally invasive treatment that enhances volume. Dr. Kasden uses a needle and syringe to remove fat cells from areas of your face where you desire a slimming effect. That fat is prepared and then transferred via injection into areas of your face where additional fullness creates enhanced contouring.
Dermal fillers are a type of injectable that replaces lost facial volume that gives a smoothing effect or creates additional volume in areas like your lips. Many fillers, including Juvéderm®, are made of a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid, a substance your skin produces naturally. Some fillers have a thick, gel-like consistency, while others are much thinner.
Though results are temporary, fillers also prompt your body to create new collagen, which has lasting effects.
Kybella® is another injectable treatment that permanently eliminates fat in the area beneath your chin by breaking down fat cells.
