In this post, we are focusing on nonsurgical options. Next month, we will present ideas for surgical procedures that can take years off your face.

Injectables: Different ones for different purposes

Imagine having results with no downtime. It’s possible with nonsurgical options using injectables and fillers.

  • Botox® – Great way to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as to prevent new lines from forming. It works by temporarily relaxing facial muscles. Common injection sites include the forehead, the area between the eyebrows, the corners of the eyes, and the sides of the chin.
  • Volbella® – Terrific way to lose the fine vertical lines around your lips. Unlike other fillers, it blends different molecular weights of hyaluronic acid, allowing it to create subtle volume that lasts for up to a year.
  • Voluma® – Made with hyaluronic acid and designed to be used specifically in the mid-face, it adds volume to the cheeks.
  • Vollure™ – A new injectable gel option I use for a variety of areas of the face.
  • Sculptra® – Made with poly-L-lactic acid, it stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen over time. I frequently use this to help with the décolletage, as well as global volumization of the face. The treatment typically involves 2 – 3 injection sessions over the course of several months, and results can last for up to two years.

Seeing Double

Hate that double chin? No worries. We have two nonsurgical options for that!

  • Kybella– Injectable that dissolves fat under the chin. It is common to need 2 – 4 treatments several months apart to achieve your desired results.
  • CoolSculpting® – Non-invasive procedure that uses cooling to freeze away that pesky unwanted fat in as few as just 1–2 visits.
