Injectables Q&A


What are injectables?

Injectables are cosmetic treatments that make slight alterations to your appearance. They don’t involve surgery or general anesthesia. Instead, they enter your skin or tissues through a syringe.

 

There are multiple types of injectables that work in different ways. You can choose one or more from the list at sculp|MD to achieve subtle anti-aging results. The team places your injections carefully so your results look and feel as natural as possible.

 

The results of most injectables don’t last forever. With many of them, you can maintain your results by getting follow-up injections regularly at sculp|MD. 

Which injectables can I get?

sculp|MD offers a list of some of the most popular and effective injectables on the market. The team makes sure that each injectable aligns with your goals and is safe for you to use according to your health. Your options include:

Neurotoxins

Neurotoxin injectables include botulinum toxin, which smooths wrinkles by halting their contributing muscle movements for 3-4 months. 

Hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal fillers

HA dermal fillers have a soft gel-like texture that sits well beneath your skin. You can add subtle, natural-looking plumpness to your lips, wrinkles, or cheeks. They last for 6-18 months. 

Collagen-stimulating injections

Collagen-stimulating injections offer similar results to fillers, but the improvements last for a longer time. They cause your tissues to develop more natural firming collagen. 

How should I prepare for injectables?

Preparing for any cosmetic injectables at sculp|MD involves a sit-down consultation with the team. You discuss your medical history as well as the goals you have for your results. The team makes injectable recommendations or points you in the direction of other treatments that better align with your goals.

 

Once you’ve gone through the consultation and planning process, the team may ask you to take some steps before the treatment to make the experience run as smoothly as possible. You might need to stop taking certain medications, like nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDs), to minimize the risk of experiencing bruising around the injection sites. 

 

The team may also advise you not to wear any makeup to your appointment and to take a break from smoking if you smoke. You can get your injectables in the office or at a location of your choice with the mobile aesthetics clinic.
