Injectables Q & A

What are injectables?

Many factors influence your appearance as you age. Time, lifestyle choices, sun exposure, and genetics all play a role in how you look.

Injectables offer a minimally invasive way to address unwanted signs of aging without having to undergo surgical treatments with long recovery periods or downtime.

Injectables include:

  • Wrinkle reducers, such as Botox® 
  • Dermal fillers, such as Juvéderm® Voluma™, Juvéderm® Vollure™, Juvéderm® Volbella™
  • Fat reducers, such as Kybella®

The injections include prescription compounds that ease the look of lines and wrinkles, fill in hollowed, thinning areas, and reduce fullness under the skin.

The effects of injectables last anywhere from three months to two years, depending on the formula – some injectables, such as Kybella, provide permanent results. 

All injectable treatments occur in-office. Dr. Sanders can determine the right formulas and locations for the injection to give you a natural, more youthful look, so you’re happy with your appearance.

What are the available injectable fillers?

At Kenneth Sanders Facial Plastic Surgery, he uses a variety of Juvéderm products to plump the skin, fill in hollow contours, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 

Juvéderm Voluma XC is an injectable gel used in the cheek, jawline, chin, and temple areas to correct age-related volume loss in adults. Juvéderm XC and Juvéderm Vollure XC are applied to the facial tissue to minimize the look of severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. Juvéderm is applied to the lips to restore or enhance lip volume.

What is Kybella?

Kybella is an injectable containing a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, which is a bile acid your body makes to help break down dietary fats. When injected under your chin, it destroys fat cells to reduce a double chin appearance. After several rounds of injections, you achieve a permanently sculpted profile. 

How does Botox diminish wrinkles?

Botox contains a purified neurotoxin that, when injected, temporarily reduces activity in the muscles that contribute to wrinkles. Botox can ease wrinkles in crow’s feet around the eyes, horizontal forehead lines, and frown lines between the eyebrows.
