There are many different types of injectables that can help you to look younger and more revitalized. Injectables are a popular non-surgical option and can rejuvenate your skin, muscles, and blood vessels. At Deigni Plastic Surgery, we are proud to offer the safest and most technologically advanced treatments.
Some of the available injectables we provide include Botox, Dysport, Kybella, RHA, and Sculptra. Though rare, common side effects include temporary redness, swelling, bruising, or tenderness at the site of injection, but these side effects are usually mild and resolve within a few days. Our qualified Med Spa staff will explain the benefits of these injectables and help you decide which one will help achieve your specific goals.
When patients are interested in injectables in The Woodlands, Botox is often the first thing they think of. Botox (Botulinum toxin) is a neurotoxic protein that can temporarily paralyze or weaken muscles to reduce wrinkles and fine lines. Botox prevents your muscles from contracting by blocking signals from your nerves. When your muscles are relaxed, your skin has a smoother appearance, making wrinkles and fine lines less noticeable. Common areas for Botox injections include the forehead, between your eyebrows, and around your eyes (“crow’s feet”).
Your results from Botox injections usually take a couple of days to become noticeable. They generally last for about three to six months as our muscles gradually regain their full function.
Dysport is a brand name injectable that contains botulinum toxin type A. It works similarly to Botox by temporarily relaxing or weakening specific muscles. It can smooth out wrinkles and fine lines around your mouth, forehead, and eyes, and can also be used for facial contouring.
Dysport is known for its ability to provide more you with more natural-looking results, which are usually noticeable within a few days but only last about three to four months.
Kybella is a brand-name injectable that contains deoxycholic acid. It fights against your “double chin” and is mainly used to give you a more sculpted and defined jawline. When injected into your submental area (the area beneath your chin), Kybella can destroy fat cells, which are then gradually eliminated by your natural metabolism.
Multiple small injections are usually given under your chin for each treatment. The number of Kybella treatments required depends on the amount of submental fat you have. The results of Kybella are not immediate, because it may take a few months for your body to metabolize and eliminate the destroyed fat cells. Patients looking to get injectable treatments in The Woodlands should consult with our team to learn if they might benefit from Kybella.
Resilient Hyaluronic Acid (RHA) is a dermal filler made from hyaluronic acid, which helps your skin retain moisture and stay hydrated. RHA is designed to be more of a resilient and flexible injectable, allowing it to adapt to your face’s dynamic movements and expressions. This makes it particularly suitable for areas with a lot of facial movement, such as around your mouth and eyes. The effects of RHA usually last between nine and 12 months and “touch-up” treatments may be required.
Sculptra is a brand-name dermal filler made from poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), and it addresses volume loss and sagging in the middle of your face, cheeks, and temples. It gradually stimulates collagen production, giving you a more youthful and natural appearance. Even though results are not immediate, they typically last longer than other injectables. Sculptra treatment usually involves multiple treatments, spaced a few weeks apart. To maintain the results of Sculptra, periodic “touch-ups” may be needed about every one to two years.
When you want to appear younger and more refreshed but do not want the hassle of surgery, consider getting injectables in The Woodlands. Our team will help you to create a treatment plan and determine if wrinkle relaxers or dermal fillers are right for you.
