If you’re ready to ditch the fine lines, wrinkles, crow’s feet and/or your double chin and enjoy smoother, younger looking skin, then consider injectables from our medical spa in both Des Peres and Chesterfield, Missouri. Injectables are a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that decrease the signs of aging. Aurora Medical Spa offers many different types of injectables. So, how do you know which injectable is right for you? We are licensed medical providers of injectables and can offer you a complimentary consultation to help you decide which injectable will work for you, but here are a few pointers to help you begin:
Botox is an injectable that is FDA approved to temporarily improve the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet lines in adults. So Botox is best for you if you are looking to to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, primarily between your eyebrows, on your forehead, and crow’s feet. Botox relaxes the contracted muscle, making skin smooth out and appear less wrinkled. The treatment usually takes about 10 minutes and lasts around 3 months, depending on the area treated. Our medical estheticians recommend Botox for clients who have deeper wrinkles and have the ability to get repeated treatments every 3-6 months.
Juvéderm is a dermal filler offered at Aurora Med Spa. Juvéderm is a smooth gel that reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by restoring the skin’s volume. Dermal fillers are recommended for people who want to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles typically in the lower regions of the face. Juvederm can provide up to 9 months to one year of correction for moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth). Results can last up to a year and typically don’t need repeated treatments as often as Botox.
Restylane is an FDA-approved hyaluronic acid gel injection filler indicated to provide fullness to cheeks. It is used to plump lips in patients over the age of 21 as well.
Approved by the FDA as the first and only approved injectable to remove chin fat, Kybella is for people who are bothered by excess fat under their chin. Chin fat, medically referred to as submental fullness, has traditionally been treatable only with liposuction. Kybella is an injectable that melts away the excess fat that causes double chins. If you are looking to improve your profile in this area, you may want to consider Kybella.
