Conveniently located to serve Alpharetta, John's Creek, Milton, and Roswell

Reducing fine lines and wrinkles is easily achieved with different types of injectables in Alpharetta. Depending on the type of wrinkles and creases, there are specific formulations of injectables suited for each concern. Cosmetic injectable treatments may also vary depending on the target area, offering the best possible outcome for a youthful look. These injections are ideal for individuals who do not want to undergo surgical procedures.

Botox + Fillers

Injectable treatments fall into two broad categories – neurotoxins and fillers. Both categories are supported by numerous companies with their own formulations and branded products, although the basic principles remain the same.

In aesthetic dermatology, neurotoxins are most commonly used to improve or prevent the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. However, broader uses include treatment of excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), vasospasm of the digits (Raynaud’s phenomenon), and certain forms of headache.

Fillers are used to restore and enhance the natural volume of the face and other anatomical structures. If utilized correctly, they can also be used to “lift” an area to counteract the forces of gravity and aging. There are instances where fillers are used to improve appearance after illness or trauma as well.

Am I a Good Candidate for Injectables?

Injectables are best administered to individuals who are in good overall health, with no known allergic reactions to any of the ingredients such as lidocaine. For neurotoxin injectables, it is important to have no underlying neuromuscular conditions to eliminate complications. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you may not be a good candidate for these treatments.

YourConsultation

In order to determine the best treatment plan for your cosmetic goals, a consultation is the first and most vital step. A physical examination of your face will be performed to determine the target areas, the best type of injectable products, and the complexity of the procedure. You will be asked about your motivations and expected outcome. A review of your medical history will be conducted to ensure you are eligible for cosmetic injections.

TheProcedure

Your skin will be cleansed and sanitized prior to the procedure. Then, the injections will be prepared depending on the custom-tailored treatment plan. The injection sites may be marked for precision. Finally, the injections will be administered repeatedly until the desired results are achieved. A slight massage may be applied, and the whole process can last between half an hour to an hour or more.

InjectablesAftercare

Generally, there is minimal downtime or recovery after getting injectables for fine lines and wrinkles. Most patients are able to get back to their normal routine. However, there may be swelling, tenderness, redness, and bruising in the treatment areas. It may resolve after several days. For discomfort, pain medications may be taken for relief.

Avoid using makeup for the next 12 to 24 hours. Do not take long hot baths. Do not expose your skin to heat such as saunas. Stay away from strenuous activities for a day or two, or until your symptoms disappear.

Costof Injectables

The cost of injectable treatments depends on several factors which vary for each patient. Based on the treatment plan, the overall price will be impacted by the type of product used, the number of injections consumed, and the number of treated areas.
