When you hear the term “injectables” what comes to mind? Probably not “The key to a younger version of yourself”. Injectable treatments are the cosmetic medicine answer to a more refreshed you. They include the winkle relaxers, fat dissolvers and dermal if age line fillers like Botox, Dysport, Kybella, Restylane, Juvederm, Voluma, Radiesse and Bellafill.

The neuromodulators are injectable treatments that smooth expression lines in the face that are the result of muscle action like forehead lines, crow’s feet and frown lines. They include Botox and Dysport and they work by blocking muscular nerve signals that cause muscles to contract and therefore dampen the action of the muscles that cause those unwanted lines.
Dermal fillers are injectable treatments meant to soften the appearance of facial lines by replacing the volume on the area of these facial lines. Most dermal fillers work by adding volume under the skin, smoothing over wrinkles and lines. There are short term fillers like Juvederm and Restylane and these facial fillers last up to 12 months. Juvederm, Voluma and Radiesse are good longer term options for facial fillers that last up to 24 months. Bellafill is a filler that makes you build your tissue and will last well over 5 years and likely much longer. All of these fillers can be used as lip fillers, filler for the marionette lines, filler for laugh lines, filler to and well as rejuvenate the tired lower eyelid look.
Another injectable treatment is Kybella. Kybella is injected to remove fat and usually used to treat chin fat or the double chin. Kybella consists of a naturally occurring substance called deoxycholic acid that works by breaking down dietary fat, destroying fat cells. Once fat cells are destroyed, they are eliminated naturally from the body for long-term results.
