Injectables Q & A

What are cosmetic injectables?

Cosmetic injectables are in-office treatments that improve your appearance without the downtime, long recovery, or invasive methods of surgical procedures. These injectable compounds temporarily reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, fill in areas that have lost volume, and help to reduce a double chin.

What cosmetic injectables are available?

Cutis Wellness Dermatology & Dermatopathology offers BOTOX® Cosmetic to smooth lines between your brows, on your forehead, and around your eyes. Your provider may also recommend products in the Juvéderm line that fill in hollowed cheeks, plump thinning limps, and smooth lines around the mouth, eyes, and nose. 

Kybella is an injectable medication that reduces submental fat (a double chin) for a slimmer, younger-looking profile. 

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are gel-like substances injected under the skin to add volume. Cutis Wellness Dermatology & Dermatopathology offers Juvéderm, a hyaluronic-based dermal filler. Your provider may recommend different products in the line, including:

  • Juvéderm Volbella®
  • Juvéderm Voluma® XC
  • Juvéderm® XC Ultra Plus

Hyaluronic acid is naturally produced by your body to add hydration and volume to your skin. As you age, your production of hyaluronic acid slows, so your lips grow thinner, your cheeks thin out, and wrinkles become more evident. Each of the Juvéderm products addresses these complaints effectively. Your provider can recommend the ones that are best for your cosmetic goals.

What aging concerns can be treated with cosmetic injectables?

Botox and Juvéderm products are very effective on multiple signs of aging, including:

  • Thinning lips
  • Smile lines
  • Hollowed cheeks
  • The 11s (frown lines)
  • Marionette lines
  • Smoker’s lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Horizontal forehead lines

With the expert application of dermal fillers and wrinkle reducers, you look more youthful, yet natural.

How does Kybella work?

Kybella is for people who are bothered by a double chin. The injectable contains deoxycholic acid, a natural substance that breaks down dietary fat. When injected under your chin, Kybella destroys fat cells so that they can be eliminated naturally by your body. This treatment results in a noticeably reduced chin size to boost the look of your profile.
