Injectables Q & A

What injectables are available?

At New Image Aesthetics, several types of injectables are used for cosmetic purposes, including products containing botulinum toxin and dermal fillers. The practice specializes in two products that are used to treat wrinkles and fine lines:

Botox® Cosmetic

The most popular injectable on the market, Botox is a neurotoxic protein that freezes your muscles to smooth out existing wrinkles and prevent new ones from forming. Botox is best used on your crow’s feet around your eyes, wrinkles between your eyebrows, and on the furrows on your forehead, which are areas where wrinkles form from muscle movement.

Xeomin®

Commonly viewed as an alternative to Botox, Xeomin contains a different form of botulism toxin that works much in the same way. The main difference is that Xeomin contains no other ingredients and may be recommended to women who are more sensitive to other ingredients in Botox.

Dysport®

If you want to smooth the lines between your eyebrows, but you don’t want your face to look frozen, Dysport is an ideal solution. The innovative treatment is specifically formulated to treat the wrinkles between your eyebrows without limiting your range of expression.

What are dermal fillers?

As we age, our skin’s elasticity and collagen production begin to subside, causing us to lose the volume that makes our skin look plump and fresh. Over time, this loss of collagen starts to result in the appearance of:

  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Thin lips
  • Saggy skin

While noninvasive creams, serums, and rejuvenation treatments may temporarily minimize the signs of aging, they don’t provide the dramatic results that women want.

That’s why many women turn to dermal fillers, which are injectable products that contain collagen, hyaluronic acid, or calcium hydroxyapatite — to add volume to your skin and take years off your face.

Dermal fillers can dramatically reduce the signs of aging by minimizing fine lines and wrinkles, while plumping up saggy skin and enhancing thin lips.

What dermal fillers are available?

New Image Aesthetics offers a wide array of options for women looking to rejuvenate their skin with dermal fillers. Some of the most common types are:

Sculptra®

Sculptra is an injectable dermal filler that contains poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a collagen stimulator that helps reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles and fine lines. It is also an effective treatment for cellulite and elbow, chest, and knee wrinkles.

Restylane®

Restylane is a cosmetic filler that smooths out creases and fine lines. It uses hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your body, to plump up skin in areas like the cheeks, lips, and hands to minimize the signs of aging.

Juvéderm®

Juvéderm is an injectable hyaluronic acid dermal filler that adds volume beneath your skin’s surface to smooth and plump skin to reduce the signs of aging. It’s most often used on the cheeks and around the mouth and lips.

Belotero Balance®

If a deep nasolabial fold is leaving you looking tired and aged, Belotero Balance can help. This dermal filler is specifically designed to plump and smooth the line that runs from the corner of your mouth to your nose.

What is Kybella®?

Kybella is a completely different type of injectable than dermal fillers and Botox. Kybella focuses specifically on destroying fat cells that cause fat under the chin (double chin). After Kybella is injected into submental fat, the body slowly removes the waste products through its natural detoxification systems. The end result is a more sculpted chin profile.
