What are Injectables and Fillers?
While both neurotoxin injectables and dermal fillers are effective at treating fine lines and wrinkles, they are made of different ingredients and treat the signs of aging through different processes.
Derived from the botulinum toxin, neurotoxin injectables are administered directly into the muscles of treated areas with a fine needle. The neurotoxin blocks nerve signals from reaching underlying facial muscles, temporarily relaxing them. This smoothes out the skin and reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
At Skin Deep Laser MD, we currently offer two neurotoxin injectables: BOTOX® and Xeomin®
The most common neurotoxin injectable in the world, BOTOX® is approved for use in moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows and crow’s feet around the eyes.
Manufactured in a way that isolates the therapeutic component of the ingredients and removes accessory proteins that do not directly benefit treatment, Xeomin® is primarily used for moderate to severe frown lines between the brows.
Injected directly underneath the skin, dermal fillers are mostly made from hyaluronic acid (HA) or other substances that are found naturally in the body. Dermal fillers provide instant volume and fullness underneath the skin, temporarily erasing wrinkles, lines and folds.
We currently have five dermal fillers to replace lost facial volume:
A smooth, flexible gel that integrates into your facial tissue, this filler effectively treats stubborn, deeply set lines and wrinkles.
One of the most popular dermal fillers, Juvederm® is commonly used to volumize moderate to severe wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth.
Juvederm Voluma XC®
When age-related volume loss is primarily in the cheeks, Juvederm Voluma XC® is specially designed for deep injection into the cheek areas.
Made of Calcium Hydroxylapatite, Radiesse® also stimulates the production of new collagen, the protein in your skin that enhances structure, to provide continuous improvement over time.
To eliminate submental fullness or a “double chin,” Kybella® is an injectable treatment that is administered underneath the chin. Comprised of deoxycholic acid, Kybella® permanently disables fat cells and prevents them from accumulating or storing money in the future. For men and women who want to tighten their chin without invasive procedures or downtime, Kybella® can be an ideal option.
Are Injectables and Dermal Fillers Safe?
While minor bruising, swelling and redness can occur at injection sites, both neurotoxin injectables and dermal fillers have proven safety profiles. You may be given an allergy test prior to treatment to reduce the risk of adverse reactions.
The visibility and longevity of results depend on each individual condition, and a customized treatment plan will be created for you by Dr. Riehm.
