Injectables We Offer At Our Office

injectables virginia plastic surgeonAging is an inevitable part of life and as we grow older our faces show those signs of a long life. For some, signs of aging may even appear early in life, giving you the appearance of looking older than you really are. Fortunately, advancements in medicine have given us a number of injectables that are used to treat specific signs of aging on the face to give you a more youthful complexion.

Wrinkles, folds, and lines develop on our faces from a variety of sources. Generally, these signs of aging develop from years of repeated muscle contractions on the face due to smiling, laughing, frowning, and many other expressions. Unfortunately, these lines and wrinkles can be worse for some compared to others as genetics and lifestyle choices can play a part in the formation of wrinkles. Those who enjoy being in the sun without using sunscreen or who are heavy smokers may increase the severity and early appearance of lines and wrinkles on their face.

At New Image Plastic Surgery, our board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Roberta Gartside offers many different injectables to help temporarily reduce and even erase signs of aging on the face. Depending on the severity of your wrinkles and specific cosmetic goals, Dr. Gartside can work with you to determine the best treatment for your rejuvenated look.

The injectables we offer that can help give you firm, supple skin include:

  • BOTOX® Cosmetic: One of the most popular and performed cosmetic treatments on the planet, BOTOX temporarily freezes muscles on your face to reduce mild to moderate lines and wrinkles and can be used around the eyes, lips, brows, and even neck.
  • Dysport®: Just like BOTOX, this injectable works by relaxing the facial muscles and is great for smoothing out mild to moderate lines and wrinkles on the forehead and around the mouth.
  • JUVÉDERM®: This injectable helps restore lost volume on the face such as facial folds, deeper wrinkles, sunken cheeks, and lip enhancement.
  • RADIESSE®: This injectable is used to smooth out moderate to deep wrinkles and folds on the face by adding volume to the target areas. It can be used around the mouth, chin, and jaw line.
  • Xeomin®: This injectable is specifically created to address moderate to severe lines and wrinkles on your forehead and between the eyebrows.
  • Restylane® Lyft: This injectable is designed to add volume to facial wrinkles and folds and is also used to help with facial depressions and scarring.
  • KYBELLA®: This injectable is used to eliminate fat deposits under the chin, as known as a “double chin.” It works by absorbing and eliminating fat and once the fat is destroyed it cannot accumulate again.

While each of these injectables is safe for cosmetic use, there are some people who may have minor adverse reactions to specific treatments.
