Injectables Q & A
How do cosmetic injectables work?
Cosmetic injectables perform a variety of different ways to help give you a more youthful appearance. Some injectables fill in lines and plump up areas of your face that are not as youthful as they used to be. Others make your lips look fuller, and some help relax the facial muscles that cause wrinkles.
Dr. Arrington and his experienced team offer a variety of cosmetic injectables to help smooth out your frown lines, minimize the appearance of crow’s feet, and plump areas that have lost fullness over time. Some of the injectables you can get at Atlantic Plastic Surgery include:
- Juvéderm® collection of dermal facial fillers
- Kybella® injectable for under your chin
- Botox® to relax your forehead lines and crow's feet
What does Juvéderm do?
Juvéderm is a collection of hyaluronic acid fillers that add volume to different areas of your face. They can be used to lift and smooth your cheeks and parentheses lines around your mouth, and also to plump up your lips. The results are long-lasting -- one to two years, depending on which formula is used -- so in many cases, you don’t have to get touch-ups every couple of months.*
Juvéderm contains hyaluronic acid, a substance that naturally occurs in your body. It helps your skin retain moisture and adds volume. As you age, and you produce less hyaluronic acid, your face can appear less firm and less elastic. Juvéderm is an injectable gel that contains hyaluronic acid, so it helps correct age-related volume loss in your facial tissue.
In addition to plumping and lifting your cheeks, the Juvéderm family of injectable gels can correct moderate to severe wrinkles and nasolabial folds. It can also smooth fine lines around your lips and make your lips appear fuller.
How does Kybella work?
Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that specifically targets and destroys fat under your chin. Kybella’s active ingredient is a synthetic form deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring molecule within your body that helps break down fat.
When Dr. Arrington injects Kybella into the area under your chin, it destroys the fat cells. You may need a series of injections over a period of a few months, and Dr. Arrington advises you on the best course of treatment for your individual goals. Once fat cells are destroyed, they’re gone for good, so once you reach your desired results with Kybella, you won’t need additional treatments.
