Everything You Need To Know About Dermal Fillers And Other Injectables

At SculpMD, many patients want to eliminate wrinkles and creases, like smile lines, frown lines, or crow’s feet, and contour their faces with fillers for a more youthful appearance. Our injectable specialists assess these patients and prepare a treatment plan to achieve the look they want. 

If you are curious about the benefits of dermal fillers and other injectables, here is what you can expect from these procedures. 

Cosmetic Injectables 

If you struggle with fine lines on your face, then injectables might be the appropriate treatment. SculpMD utilizes botulinum toxin A products that are similar to Botox. Brands that we use in our clinic and mobile medspa include the following FDA-approved products: 

  • Xeomin
  • Dysport
  • Jeuveau (also known as “Newtox”)

The active ingredient in these injectables blocks the release of neurotransmitters and forces the muscle in the target area to relax. As those muscles let go of their tension, your skin will smooth out over the top of the muscles, resulting in a softer facial appearance. Much like Botox, these products are well-known treatments that can reveal more youthful skin. 

One of the benefits of these injectables is that they have a reasonably long-term effect. Each treatment typically lasts for about three to four months before a touchup procedure is necessary. 

Dermal Fillers

Although many people think all cosmetic injectables are the same, dermal fillers are quite different from botulinum toxin type A injections. Fillers “fill” or add volume to target areas, such as the lips or the cheeks. One of the most popular hyaluronic acid-based facial filler brands is Restylane. 

This line of injectables uses an active ingredient that’s very similar to the hyaluronic acid naturally occurring in your body’s connective tissue. As a result, Restylane products can provide natural-looking results. 

One of the benefits of Restylane dermal fillers is that they have different formulas tailored to your unique needs. Here are lines the brand offers: 

  • Restylane (for volume and fullness, wrinkles, and lip enhancement)
  • Restylane Refyne and Restylane Lyft (for mild to moderate skin wrinkles and lines)
  • Restylane Silk and Restylane Kysse (for lip enhancement)
  • Restylane-L and Restylane Defyne (for moderate to severe skin wrinkles and folds)
  • Restylane Contour (for cheeks)

How long the treatment lasts depends on the specific Restylane product you choose and the area or areas you’re targeting. Typically, sessions are 5-20 minutes long. 

Facial filler results vary, too. In nasolabial folds, you may see results for up to 18 months. Cheeks and facial wrinkles or folds often boast results for 12 months. Lips usually last for approximately 6 months.
