Injectables

The aging process can lead to many unwanted changes to your appearance, including the development of fine lines and wrinkles, loss of facial volume and the arrival of dry, aged skin. Cosmetic injectables, including dermal fillers and neuromodulators, can create anti-aging results similar to those of plastic surgery without ever having to undergo an invasive procedure or lengthy recovery period.

At De La Belle Wellness & Spa, our qualified practitioners provide patients with many different minimally-invasive injectable treatments that can restore youthfulness to your face without compromising your natural beauty. If you desire to soften deep facial wrinkles, eliminate the appearance of a double chin or achieve fuller cheeks and lips, cosmetic injectables can help you to refresh your complexion without discomfort or downtime.

Types of Cosmetic Injectables

Cosmetic injectables are commonly categorized by the ingredients in their formulation and what they can accomplish, the primary two being dermal fillers and neuromodulators. While both of these injectable treatments will work to reduce or eliminate aging concerns throughout the face temporarily, their ingredients work in very different ways.

Dermal fillers are intended to treat static wrinkles, or wrinkles that are always visible on your skin. Over time, your skin slowly loses volume and moisture due to the natural decline of hyaluronic acid in the skin. When combined with sun exposure, gravity and other environmental factors, this loss of hydration begins to take its toll on the skin, resulting in deeply etched wrinkles and fine lines across your complexion. Dermal fillers focus on rehydrating the skin by supplying it with naturally occurring substances like hyaluronic acid or collagen to rehydrate facial tissues, restore lost volume and fill lines and wrinkles from within.

Neuromodulators focus on treating dynamic wrinkles, or wrinkles that are only visible when your face is forming expressions. Neuromodulators are each formulated with the same active ingredient botulinum toxin type A. By injecting neuromodulators into targeted muscles in the face; the botulinum toxin works to relax small facial muscles by blocking signals from the brain that tell these muscles to contract. As a result, your skin will appear visibly smoother and more youthful for several months.

In addition to dermal fillers and neuromodulators, De La Belle Wellness & Spa also offers Kybella, an injectable fat reduction treatment designed to eliminate excess fat beneath the chin for a tighter and sleeker jawline. With a broad range of cosmetic injectables available, our talented team at De La Belle can help you rejuvenate your appearance in convenient 10-minute appointments.

Juvederm Ultra Plus is ideal for improving the appearance of fine lines and facial wrinkles and can last up to nine months.

Radiesse

Radiesse is composed of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres that are suspended in soft gel, which works to stimulate the production of collagen in the skin naturally.

The enhancements you achieve can persist for 12 to 18 months before your next injectable appointment.

It’s delicate and versatile formulation makes it an ideal option for filling nasolabial folds around the mouth as well as sensitive areas such as fine lines around the lips. Results can last up to six months or more before a touch-up treatment is required.

Botox

As one of the most reputable injectables on the market, Botox is a neuromodulator that will relax facial muscles in the upper portion of the face responsible for expression lines on the forehead and around the eyes. Botox will smooth the appearance of your complexion for three to four months before a maintenance injection is required.

Xeomin

Similar to Botox, Xeomin is another popular neuromodulator injectable designed to relax the facial muscles that contribute to the formation of wrinkles. Xeomin is specially indicated for the use of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows, and will typically begin to take effect within three to four days of your injections. Xeomin results will last an average of three months before your next appointment is needed.

Restylane

Restylane® can be used to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). Restylane may also be used for lip enhancement in patients over 21 years.

Kybella

Kybella is an FDA-cleared injectable treatment that can significantly reduce or even eliminate submental fullness, or deposits of fat that can accumulate beneath the chin. This fullness results in the appearance of what many describe as a double chin. The main ingredient in Kybella is synthetic deoxycholic acid, which breaks down and absorbs dietary fat. Once these fat cells are destroyed, they will not return to the area for permanent results.

What Can I Expect From My Injectable Treatment?

Most cosmetic injectable treatments are relatively quick, lasting no longer than 10 to 20 minutes depending on your concerns. Some patients may experience longer treatments if they choose to receive a combination of neuromodulators and filler products to target multiple types of aging on their face. Some injectable brands like Juvederm are preformulated with lidocaine, a local anesthetic, to make the treatment virtually painless and comfortable. In cases where the injectable product does not contain lidocaine, a topical anesthetic or ice may be used before your injections to minimize any discomfort during the procedure.

As soon as your appointment is over, you are free to resume all regular daily activities. You may experience mild bruising, swelling or redness at the site of your injections; however, these side effects will generally subside within a few hours. Depending on the product selected, you will be able to see noticeable results from your treatment immediately or within one week of your appointment for a natural, younger-looking you.
