What are cosmetic injectables?
Injectables, like Botox and dermal fillers, are cosmetic treatments that Dr. Walls injects into various areas of your skin to reduce the outward signs of aging. Injectables work in different ways to fill in, smooth out, plump up, and reduce the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles. Dr. Walls provides injectables for men and women who want to look as good as they feel.
How does Botox work?
Botox is an injectable solution made from a natural form of botulinum toxin. When Dr. Walls injects it into specific points across your forehead, between your eyebrows, or at the outer corners of your eyes, it temporarily restricts muscle movement. This makes the lines across your forehead and between your eyebrows, and the crow’s-feet around your eyes appear smoother and less prominent.
Years of squinting, frowning, and making normal facial expressions lead to wrinkles and creases. Botox targets these muscles and reduces their movement. You can still make all your usual facial expressions, but your wrinkles look smoother.
Results appear within 24-48 hours of receiving Botox injections and can last up to four months for moderate to severe frown lines.
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers help restore facial volume and reduce the appearance of fine lines. Dermal fillers, such as the Juvéderm® family of fillers, can also plump up thin lips, or reduce the appearance of scars.
Based on your desired look, Dr. Walls recommends the perfect combination of dermal fillers to help restore a more youthful appearance to your face. She uses AQUAGOLD® fine touch™ surgical-grade needles to deliver dermal fillers — an advantage over traditional syringe delivery of fillers.
And if you want an instant nonsurgical face-lift and a gradual increase in natural facial volume, you can achieve that with the innovative Silhouette InstaLift™. This minimally invasive treatment uses surgical-grade, absorbable sutures to lift your skin and generate new collagen production. The results are instant and long-lasting.
How does Kybella work?
Kybella is a different type of injectable. It doesn’t smooth out wrinkles, but it does help improve the appearance of submental fat, otherwise known as a double chin. In fact, it’s the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells under your chin to enhance your profile and help you feel more confident about your appearance.
The active ingredient in Kybella is synthetic deoxycholic acid. This is a naturally occurring molecule in your body that helps you break down and absorb dietary fat. When Dr. Walls injects Kybella into the area under your chin, it destroys fat cells so you enjoy a noticeable difference in the fullness under your chin.
Once the fat cells are gone, they don’t regenerate, so results are long-lasting once you achieve your desired outcome. Dr. Walls tailors your Kybella treatment plan to your individual needs, which may include a series of injections spaced about a month apart.
If you’ve been thinking about cosmetic injectables as a way to enhance your facial features or minimize the outward signs of aging, it’s a good idea to schedule a consultation so Dr. Walls can recommend the type of injectable that’s right for you.
