Injectables Overview

INJECTABLES

Elite Aesthetics offers a complete portfolio of injectable facial rejuvenation treatments. Our facial injectables fall into three general categories — wrinkle and fine line reduction, hyaluronic acid based fillers, and fat reductionplay important roles together in keeping facial skin looking smooth and supple. The popular BOTOX ® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA), is an injectable that reduces the appearance of moderate to severe fine lines and wrinkle. Hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers like JUVEDERM ® are natural sugars found in all living cells that attracts and binds water to hydrate the skin while giving it structure and volume. Deoxycholic acid is known as KYBELLA® and destroys fat cells under the chin giving the neck and face a better shape.

As the skin ages and is exposed to environmental pollutants and ultraviolet rays, collagen and hyaluronic acid in the skin diminish, the skin loses structure and volume, and unwelcome lines and wrinkles appear.

JUVÉDERM ®

JUVEDERM ® is a hyaluronic acid filler that adds volume to different areas of the face to lift cheeks, smooth out deep nasolabial folds, or plump the lips. Hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally found in the human body. JUVEDERM ® has been proven to produce more effective, long­lasting results than those obtained from other wrinkle reducers, including collagen and fat injections. It is extremely effective at keeping your skin beautiful with a natural long­lasting appearance.

Commonly Treated Areas:

  • Marionette lines
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Frown lines and facial creases
  • Smooth under­-eye-­hollows
  • Lips
  • Cheeks

VOLUMA ®

VOLUMA® is a new type of filler that was recently FDA approved for filling in the cheek area. One of the benefits of a VOLUMA® filler is it’s ability to give you a lot more “lift” that lasts much longer than the other hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers. A standard VOLUMA® injection will last anywhere from 18-24 month and is fully reversible if you don’t like it.

Who should use a VOLUMA® filler?
VOLUMA® fillers are perfect if you are looking to temporarily correct age-related volume loss in the cheek area. As we age, volume loss in the cheek naturally occurs from a combination of both fat and bone absorption, which ultimately gives us the sagging skin that continues to increase over time. To combat the inevitable fact that we all age, this filler offers greater longevity than the other fillers out there.

KYBELLA ®

KYBELLA ® is an effective new treatment used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of fat underneath the chin called sub-mental fat but also known as “double chin.” The treatment leads to a more natural looking jaw line and once satisfied the treatment is permanent.

Commonly Treated Areas:

  • Double chin
BOTOX ®

BOTOX ® Cosmetic is an injected agent that goes into the facial muscles and is used to temporarily improve the look of both moderate to severe facial lines and wrinkles. BOTOX ® has become a common household name and is used in many cosmetic applications to help reverse various signs of aging. In addition to treating expression­related creases, physicians currently use Botox for a wide variety of FDA­certified aesthetic and medical treatments, from excessive sweating and chronic
migraine headaches to a nonsurgical wrinkle relaxer

Commonly Treated Areas:

  • Crow’s – ­feet around the eyes
  • Deep lines and wrinkles
  • Forehead worry lines
  • Frown lines
  • Glabellar region
  • Marionette lines

INJECTABLES PROCEDURE & RECOVERY

Dr. Ward will evaluate your facial appearance and skin tone and examine the areas of your face to be augmented. Strategic points on your face may be marked as the appropriate injection sites.

Depending on the number of areas to be treated, the whole process may be take about 30 minutes. Once the results are deemed satisfactory, any markings will be cleansed off. Injectables have a very quick recovery time. You can go right back to work or go out to an event the same day.
