Cosmetic Injectables By Khrom

What are cosmetic injectables?

Cosmetic injectables are one of the most common cosmetic treatments done in the United States today. It is estimated that there were approximately 10 million injections of Botulinum Toxin Type A and soft tissue fillers – two of the most common types of cosmetic injectables – done in 2017 alone! With Botox and other treatments being a mainstay on the news and social media, many patients are left wondering whether they are worth the hype. In short, we believe so! At Khrom Dermatology, we have seen what a dramatic difference these minimally invasive injections can do to transform not only a person’s facial skin, but also their self-confidence. Injectables can restore a youthful appearance to aging skin, fill in wrinkles, correct sagging skin, and more, for just a fraction of the cost of a traditional surgical face lift. If you are interested in learning more about how cosmetic injections work, what to expect from the procedure, and the types offered at our dermatological practice, read on!

The two leading types of injectables: neuromodulators and dermal fillers

Neuromodulator wrinkle relaxers
When someone talks about injectables, they are likely talking about one of the two main types of substances that can be injected into the skin for aesthetic purposes: neuromodulators and dermal fillers. These two types of treatments work very differently and can be used either separately or in conjunction with each other for a more dramatic effect. Each type of injectable is discussed in detail below.

Neuromodulator wrinkle relaxers

Did you know that muscles can cause wrinkles and lines on your face? It happens because you use the same muscles, the same way, every time you squint, or frown, or form any other facial expression. Over time, those muscles harden, causing ridges below the skin. Neuromodulators are injectables that prevent excess muscle contraction. In turn, the muscles underneath your skin are more relaxed and do not form wrinkles. Over time, the skin can begin healing and it gradually smooths out.

Botulinum toxin type A is the FDA-approved ingredient in neuromodulator injections, but several different formulations are available. Botox Cosmetic was the first neuromodulator on the market, and it is still the best known. Dysport, Xeomin, and Jeuveau are similar formulas, which also achieve excellent results. Some people report a better result with one formula or another, which is why we offer all if them.
Dermal fillers During the aging process, your face loses natural volume that gives it a youthful, smooth appearance. Dermal fillers are used to provide an instant volume boost to these sagging or hollow locations on the face. Juvéderm Family - With a broad collection of hyaluronic acid fillers, Juvéderm has a formula for every need. Juvéderm XC, Vollure XC and Juvéderm Ultra XC, contain lidocaine for added comfort. Sculptra - Formulated with poly-L-lactic acid, Sculptra Aesthetic stimulates increased collagen production for gradual, volumization that lasts up to two years. It is biocompatible and biodegradable, meaning that it is naturally broken down and eliminated by your body over time. Restylane Family - Perlane (Restylane Lyft) and other fillers in the Restylane family, such as Defyne and Refyne, are formulated with hyaluronic acid, which bonds with water to add natural volume to skin. Radiesse - This unique filler contains calcium hydroxyapatite, for immediate volume and a long-term increase in collagen. The product is gradually metabolized, leaving only your natural collagen. Belotero Balance - An ultra-smooth hyaluronic acid filler, Belotero Balance integrates with skin for reliable results even in the most delicate areas.

What to expect during and after your treatment

The procedure for injecting neuromodulators and dermal fillers only takes a few minutes in most cases. Neuuomodulators are truly “lunchtime procedures” because you don’t need to do any advance preparation before the treatment and there is no downtime afterwards. The only restrictions typically placed on someone after they receive neuromodulator injections are not to ice the injection site, refrain from exercise for up to 48 hours, and do not put any pressure on the injection area or lay down for about four hours. Your specific aftercare instructions will be provided to you by our professional team and are intended to prevent the injection material from “migrating” to other locations in your face or causing unwanted side effects.

With dermal fillers, you may be instructed to avoid taking certain medications that can thin your blood or prevent it from properly clotting, such as fish oil supplements, aspirin, and ibuprofen, for two weeks before the procedure. After the injections, the most common side effects are swelling and bruising, so we typically suggest that you avoid scheduling your treatment in the few days leading up to any major events.

Results from injectables: when you see them and how long they last

The results from cosmetic injections vary by which product is being used, the treatment area, and how long you have been receiving the treatment. With all injectables, it is important to have realistic expectations not only about the results, but how long they will last and how frequently you will need maintenance injections. Dr. Khrom believes that patient education is crucial in having a good overall experience and outcome, and she will talk through all the information you need to feel well-informed and know what to expect.
  • Fillers almost always have an immediate result, so you can walk out of the office seeing the effects of your treatment right away. However, how long the results from dermal fillers last vary significantly by type. In general, Juvéderm fillers last about one year, Restylane fillers last between six months and a year, Sculptra Aesthetic lasts about two years, Radiesse lasts for 18 to 24 months, and Belotero Balance lasts six months. Some of these fillers are better than others for different skin types or treatment areas, so how long the results last should be only one factor in your decision about which filler to use. Dr. Khrom can explain the pros and cons of any fillers that are appropriate options so you can choose the one that fits your preferences and budget best.
  • Neuromodulators such as Botox or Jeuveau typically do not have immediate results, but instead, start to appear in about five to seven days and take full effect by about two weeks after treatment. They provide results for about three to four months, after which you will notice the effect fading. At that point, you will need to get maintenance injections done at periodic intervals. A little-known fact about neuromodulators is that with multiple treatments over time, they begin to thin the muscles that have been treated (like muscles atrophying if you don’t regularly work out at the gym). This means your face is naturally less able to form wrinkles than it was before and the results from each injection last longer than they did when you first began receiving treatments.

A more radiant, younger-looking face is within your reach!

The importance of seeking care from a board-certified dermatologist

In addition, Dr. Khrom has the expertise needed to achieve the most natural-looking, beautiful results possible.

Dr. Khrom diagnosed and treated my 87-year-old mom for a cancerous growth on her nose. She performed Mohs surgery, then sutured the wound. The results are excellent. My cousin is a plastic surgeon, and he was thoroughly impressed!! Dr. Khrom and her staff are extremely courteous and professional, and treated my mom with the utmost respect. Thank you Dr. Khrom.
