Injectables Q & A

What are cosmetic injectables?

Cosmetic injectables are in-office treatments that provide a temporary reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. They can also plump up hollow cheeks and thin lips. At Integrative Health and Heart & Integrative Skin ID, the team offers Botox to smooth lines on your forehead, between your brows, and around your eyes (crow’s feet.) They also provide many products in the Juvéderm line of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers including:

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

Dr. Chowdhury reviews your features, skin issues, and goals to determine which of these products will help you best meet your goals.

You may also opt for platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, which is derived from your own blood, to fill in contours, reduce lines, and enhance self-healing of your skin.

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are substances that are injected into your skin to add volume. Juvéderm fillers contain hyaluronic acid, a natural compound that hydrates and plumps your skin.

As you age, your production of hyaluronic acid reduces, so wrinkles become more apparent, your lips grow thinner, and your cheeks can appear hollow. Injections of Juvéderm restore your levels of hyaluronic acid to bring back youthful volume to these areas.

How does platelet-rich plasma improve my complexion?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a boosted form of your own blood. A technician draws a sample of blood, which is then spun down to concentrate the number of healing platelets. When this PRP is strategically injected into your face or applied in conjunction with microneedling, the healing factors in the platelets go to work restoring contours and plumping up gaunt areas. PRP penetrates deep under the surface of your skin to promote cellular regeneration and collagen.

What areas can be treated with cosmetic injectables?

Cosmetic injectables can be valuable for a number of facial areas that often show your age. These include:

  • Thinning lips
  • Smile lines
  • Hollowed cheeks
  • Marionette lines
  • Smoker’s lines
  • Wrinkles around the eyes

With the expert application of dermal fillers and wrinkle reducers, you look naturally more youthful. People notice you look brighter, but not like you’ve had work done.

How long do the results of cosmetic injectables last?

The effects of Botox last three or four months, while Juvéderm may offer results for up to 18 months. Exactly how long the effects of these treatments last depends on your personal metabolism, the formula used, and the area treated.

Follow-up treatments are available to help you maintain the youthful look you achieve with the fillers and wrinkle reducers.
