Which Injectable Treatment is Right for You?
Botox is perhaps the most well-known injectable treatment. It reduces wrinkles by preventing facial muscles from contracting.
Kybella is a unique product, as it is the only FDA-approved formula used to destroy fat cells under the chin to create a more defined jawline.
Other injectable treatments, also called “fillers,” are becoming increasingly popular. Fillers are minimally invasive and can be used to restore volume to the face, camouflage wrinkles and fine lines, or augment the lips. Here is a brief overview of the filler options that Dr. Shaddix offers.
Part of an extensive family of fillers, Juvéderm is made with hyaluronic acid and creates volume in the skin, especially to fill in folds along the mouth.
Using hyaluronic acid, Restylane is used to correct nasolabial folds and augment the lips.
Part of the Restylane family of fillers, Defyne is specifically formulated to fill marionette lines around the nose and mouth.
Lyft is another Restylane product that is injected deep underneath the skin to lift the midface and add or restore volume in the cheeks.
The final option within the Restylane family, Refyne uses cross-linked hyaluronic acid gel to fill laugh lines. It is long-lasting and allows for natural movements.
Volbella is a Juvéderm product which is formulated for use in non-surgical lip augmentation and is particularly useful for those seeking to plump thin or aging lips.
Another product in the Juvéderm family, Vollure is intended to smooth out facial lines by placing hyaluronic acid underneath the skin to restore volume.
Voluma is a Juvéderm product which effectively adds volume to the cheeks and midface through a deep injection.
Of course, there are many individual factors that need to be considered before determining which injectable treatment is right for you. The best way to choose is with guidance from a qualified professional. To learn more about any of these products and to find out which may be the right choice, schedule a consultation with Dr. Shaddix.
