Cosmetic injectables - Skin Savvy USA
What do cosmetic injectables treat?
Cosmetic injectables include a variety of neurotoxins, dermal fillers, and even fat-fighting agents to help you take years off your face and smooth out your skin, without surgery. Read below to learn about what some of the most in-demand dermal fillers treat.
Botox is a botulinum injectable used to relax facial muscles, so skin smooths out for optimal wrinkle reduction. You can get Botox to soften the appearance of:
- Moderate-to-severe frown lines
- Forehead lines
- Crow’s feet
Will I look like I had “work” done?
Botox will not change facial features or alter one’s look; it simply eliminates lines and wrinkles. Patients with a more natural approach are able to make all forms of facial expressions (minus the wrinkles) after treatment. There is little to no risk of being “overdone” if you choose to get Botox from an experienced, qualified injector.
Additionally, Skin Savvy licensed providers specilize in preventine botox treatment aka “Baby Botox”. Most people wait until they start to see wrinkles before they seek Botox treatment, but preventative treatment uses Botox to treat wrinkles before they emerge. By injecting the muscles that typically cause wrinkles with Botox before they start to develop wrinkles, you are essentially preventing them before they happen.
Simply put, “Baby Botox” uses a lower volume of Botox than a traditional injection to smooth fine lines and wrinkles and is perfect for first-time Botox patients in their 20s.
Facial fillers, also known as dermal fillers, are effective in treating a wide variety of concerns including plump thinning lips, give eyebrows a lift, enhance cheekbones, erase under-eye circles, smooth smile lines, and leave you looking rejuvenated and more youthful! At Skin Savvy, we offer a variety of top-performing fillers.
Juvéderm includes a collection of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers that are each specifically designed to target certain areas. This line of dermal fillers includes:
- Juvéderm XC or Vollure™ XC for correcting moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds
- Juvéderm Ultra XC to add volume to thin lips and soften parentheses lines
- Juvéderm Volbella® XC to augment your lips and get rid of lipstick lines
- Juvéderm Voluma® XC for contouring and filling out your cheeks
Sculptra Aesthetic is a unique type of gel-like injectable that helps stimulate your skin’s natural collagen production abilities. It’s made of poly-L-lactic acid that’s ideal for restoring age-related volume loss, as well as smoothing out lines, creases, and folds.
Kybella, made of synthetic deoxycholic acid, is scientifically proven to destroy chin fat. This injectable helps metabolize fatty buildups underneath your jawline, so you’re left with a more contoured and defined profile.
Cosmetic injectables FAQs
Which type of cosmetic injectable do I need?
Chrissy and the aesthetic specialists and Skin Savvy understand how overwhelming it can be to sort through each type of injectable, figure out how they work, and determine which ones may be right for you. In many cases, it’s best to combine cosmetic injectables for superior benefits. For instance, if you’re worried about the appearance of deep lines across your forehead, you may benefit from Botox injections to smooth out your wrinkles. But if you also have age-related volume loss in your cheeks, you might need a hyaluronic acid dermal filler, like Juvéderm Voluma XC, to lift and contour your cheeks for an overall “liquid face-lift” effect. When you come into Skin Savvy for your consultation, Chrissy and the team sit and talk with you about what you’d like to achieve. They can guide you through the list of dermal fillers and cosmetic injectables and help you decide which one — or which ones — is best for you.
How often do I need cosmetic injectables?
It just depends on which dermal fillers and cosmetic injectables you decide to get. Neurotoxins, like Botox and Dysport, usually last for about four months (sometimes longer). With hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, such as Juvéderm or Restylane, you can experience dramatic results for up to a year. Some lines of Juvéderm, as well as Sculptra, are created to provide benefits for up to two years. The main cosmetic injectable that’s designed to be permanent is Kybella, since it effectively destroys fatty deposits. Kybella sometimes needs to be repeated if you gain weight in the future. When you come into Skin Savvy for your cosmetic injectables consultation, you learn more about how long your specific injectable service should last. Once your treatment wears off, you can safely get the cosmetic injectables again.
