Types of Injectable Treatments
There are many types of injectable treatments on the market, each of which rejuvenates the appearance in different ways. Injectables are a great alternative to plastic surgery.
- Botulinum toxin type A injections such as BOTOX® Cosmetic relax underlying facial muscles to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and raise the brows.
- Dermal fillers, such as JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC, JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA™ XC, JUVÉDERM® VOLLURE™ XC, BELOTERO BALANCE®, and RADIESSE®, improve the structure of your face and reduce wrinkles by adding volume under the skin.
- KYBELLA® is a completely different type of product that reduces fat under the chin to refine the contours of the face.
When you meet with Dr. Galitzin for your consultation, he will discuss your goals with you. He will then evaluate your potential treatment areas to determine which injectable treatment will provide you with the most benefit.
Our Injectable Products
BOTOX Cosmetic is a safe, non-surgical cosmetic procedure that temporarily reduces the appearance of crow’s feet, creases in the forehead, and frown lines between the eyebrows. It can also improve the appearance of a downturned mouth, lines around the chin area, and drooping eyebrows.
Prior to treatment, a topical numbing cream may be applied to reduce discomfort, and then you receive two to three injections in each treatment area. There is no downtime involved with BOTOX Cosmetic. Your results will gradually appear over several days and will last three to four months on average.
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA XC
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA XC is specifically used on the lips and mouth area. It is a smooth gel filler that is injected using an ultra-fine needle. This dermal filler has been specifically developed as a smooth gel to provide a soft, natural feel. The gel fills in lip lines and wrinkles while the hyaluronic acid attracts and retains moisture, so results can last up to a year.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC is another filler that is composed of hyaluronic acid. However, the VOLUMA injectable treatment does more than just fill in lines and wrinkles. It restores volume to areas like the cheeks, under the eyes, and other areas that sag due to lost volume. This advanced dermal filler provides immediate results that can last up to two years.
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE XC
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE XC is FDA approved for the correction of moderate to severe wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. The results of this filler product last up to 18 months. JUVÉDERM VOLLURE XC is formulated with Allergan's proprietary VYCROSS technology, which blends different molecular weights of hyaluronic acid, contributing to the gel's duration.
RADIESSE is a dermal filler that can be used to add lost volume to the back of the hands. You may experience bruising, swelling, redness, and itching at the injection site following treatment. RADIESSE offers immediate results that can last up to one year.
KYBELLA is composed of deoxycholic acid, which aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. It is most commonly used to reduce fat under the chin, also known as submental fullness or a double chin.
After your visit, you may experience some bruising, swelling, sensitivity, or numbness, which may last up to a week. You can return to your normal activities within a day or two, and your results will be visible within two to three weeks. Most patients require multiple treatments to achieve their desired results. However, KYBELLA offers permanent results.
"I am so very pleased with the results of my injections yesterday. I have had experience with three other doctors; and, have always had terrible bruises the next day. Imagine my excitement when I woke up this morning with NO bruises. Dr. Galitzin made the difference and I'm extremely grateful for his expertise. I can highly recommend him." Injectables Patient
