Injectables Q&A

What is Botox?

Botox is the first injectable treatment to receive FDA-approval for providing temporary relief from forehead lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet. It’s also the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment in the world. 

Formulated from Clostridium botulinum, a substance found in nature that is toxic at certain concentrations, the amount in injectable Botox is carefully controlled and perfectly safe.

Botox works by impeding the ability of targeted muscles to go through their full range of motion. That means they won’t be able to tug and pull your skin into folds, lines, and wrinkles. 

DysportⓇ is also from botulinum toxin but uses different trace proteins. The effects may not last as long as Botox, but the cost of Dysport is usually lower. With both injectables, your wrinkles will return over time, and you will need additional injections to extend results. 

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are gel-like synthetic substances that act to replace lost facial volume and boost fullness. There are numerous brands of dermal fillers available, and they also come in different formulations. Most contain a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid, a substance your body produces naturally and will absorb over time.

Some areas where dermal fillers can enhance volume include:

  • Cheeks
  • Lips
  • Crow’s feet
  • Nasolabial lines
  • Marionette lines
  • Vertical lip lines

Many men and women choose to have several types of fillers injected during the same appointment. 

What is the injectable KybellaⓇ?

Kybella is an FDA-approved injectables treatment that permanently destroys a portion of the fat cells beneath your chin. It’s a great way to improve submental fullness, the term for a double chin. 

The injections are formulated with a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, a substance your body produces naturally. Deoxycholic acid breaks down dietary fat, and when injected, will break down targeted fat cells, creating less fullness in the treatment area.   

Treatments require numerous shallow injections, but the area is numb to reduce discomfort. A degree of swelling and minor bruising is normal in the days following injections, but you begin to see results within a few weeks. 

What are skinny energy shot injectables?

Medical Spa NP offers weight loss services, including the popular hCG diet. Skinny energy shots are a supplemental weight loss tool that can help you reach your goals. 

These injectables include methionine, B12, choline, pyridoxine, and inositol. The ingredients help boost your mood, increase energy, aid in concentration, and improve your immune system. They can also help control hunger and help your body burn fat more efficiently.
