With all the cosmetic injections on the market today, it can be hard to keep them all straight. But with a little more information and expert feedback, choosing the right injectable for you can be a pretty simple process.
At Dermestetics, our expert injectors start each treatment with a thorough consultation. This allows us to cultivate understanding and tailor each treatment plan to the client’s concerns, goals, medical history, and upcoming social events.
Whether you’re looking to boost volume, smooth wrinkles, stimulate collagen production, or improve your overall appearance and well-being, we provide a wide range of injectables in McLean to help meet your goals.
What Are Injectables?
Injectables are a category of aesthetic and wellness treatments that are injected into the body to enhance or correct your physical features. Most cosmetic injectables are injected into the skin or muscle using a syringe, but wellness-supporting injectables, such as vitamin injections, are injected directly into the bloodstream.
What Sets Dermestetics Apart?
Some decisions in life can involve compromises, but choosing an injector shouldn’t be one of them. The utmost care, skill, and attention must be used whenever treatments are injected into the body. A poorly chosen, inexperienced injector can cause unsightly or unnatural-looking results and even serious harm.
All of our expert injectors at Dermestetics are fully equipped, fully certified, and fully committed to administering safe and effective injectable treatments to help you look and feel your best.
Injectables in McLean
Our selection of injectables covers all the bases, from fat and wrinkle reduction to better skin and energy levels—from aesthetic and cosmetic treatments to health and wellness support.
Dermal fillers are one of the most versatile aesthetic treatments out there. This isn’t necessarily because fillers do so many different things, but rather, because so many areas can benefit from what fillers do best: increase volume. Increasing volume in strategic areas can, in turn, smooth fine lines and wrinkles and give your features a lifted, more toned appearance.
As you might expect from the name, dermal fillers fill out the skin. Some patients get fillers to plump up their favorite features (e.g. lips and cheeks), while others may get fillers to restore lost volume resulting from aging or certain medical conditions.
Fillers can be used for a wide variety of applications, including:
- Lip augmentation
- Cheek augmentation
- Tear trough augmentation
- Nonsurgical rhinoplasty
- Nonsurgical facelift
- Laugh line treatment
- Temple treatment
- Jawline contouring
- Chin augmentation
- Hand rejuvenation
- Facial balancing
Juvéderm Volux is a hyaluronic acid-based filler used specifically for enhancing and restoring volume to the jawline.
The length of a treatment session depends on the size of the area being treated, but it usually lasts 30 to 60 minutes. Results for Juvéderm Volux can last up to 12 months.
Downtime for Juvéderm Volux varies from patient to patient, but many of our patients experience some bruising and swelling that can last 1 to 10 days.
Skinvive by Juvéderm
For better hydration from the inside out, Skinvive by Juvéderm is the way to glow.
Unlike glutathione injections, Skinvive is FDA approved for improving the glow and smoothness of your cheeks. It does this by improving skin hydration, and it improves hydration through a series of microdroplet injections (multiple injections of tiny amounts) of hyaluronic acid just below the skin.
Skinvive benefits can last up to 6 months, and these benefits can include:
- Increased hydration
- Improved skin smoothness
- Reduced fine lines
- More elastic skin
- Lasting, healthy-looking glow
And all of this can be achieved with 15-minute treatment sessions and little to no downtime.
When it comes to nonsurgical facial contouring, few treatments can make as big of a difference for your profile as Kybella. Formulated for use on submental fat (also known as a double chin), Kybella permanently destroys fat cells. Your body can then naturally break them down and eliminate them.
Double chins can be especially resistant to weight loss. Even patients who diet and exercise their way to losing weight can still struggle to reduce the appearance of their double chin. This is no fault of their own. Genetics can play an outsized role in developing a double chin in the first place.
But regardless of who develops excess submental fat, Kybella injections can make a world of difference in as little as 4 weeks after treatment.
Most of our patients at Dermestics see their best results after 2 to 4 injection treatments spaced 6 to 8 weeks apart, and results are permanent. For those looking to tackle stubborn submental fat for good, speak to a provider to check out our Skin Tightening options that can pair with Kybella, such as Morpheus8 RF Microneedling for a results-driven treatment plan.
Neurotoxins, also known as neuromodulators, are a category of injectables most commonly used for smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles. But they can also be used for a range of medical purposes. Included in the neurotoxin category are some of the biggest names in the industry, such as Botox, Daxxify, Dysport, and Xeomin.
While different neurotoxins have different applications, they all use the same basic process. These injectables use neurotoxins such as botulinum toxin A to relax muscles.
Most people would assume that reducing fine lines and wrinkles is mainly about treating the skin. That can sometimes be the case, but what makes neurotoxins so effective is their ability to relax the muscles beneath wrinkled skin.
The majority of facial wrinkles are caused by years and years of facial expressions. Injecting a neurotoxin directly into these muscles blocks the signals from your brain telling them to contract. As a result, the appearance of wrinkles is reduced, and the wrinkles are prevented from worsening.
The effects of neurotoxins on wrinkles may get most of the attention, but Botox was actually first developed as a medical intervention. Medical Botox can be used to treat conditions including:
- Chronic migraines
- Muscle spasms
- Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating)
- Gummy smile
- Crooked and lazy eyes
When administered by qualified and experienced injectors, results from neurotoxin injectables in McLean can be life changing. Cosmetic treatments inspire confidence with natural and youthful-looking results, and medical treatments eliminate barriers to living your best life.
PRP (platelet-rich-plasma) treatments harness the body’s natural healing and rejuvenation processes to accelerate healing after treatment and turbocharge collagen production. It can be used as an injectable or combined with microneedling to treat a variety of skin concerns and conditions, including:
- Aging skin
- Hair loss
- Enlarged pores
- Acne scars
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Dull skin
- Uneven skin texture
While PRP can be used as a separate treatment, most of the time, we use it in conjunction with other aesthetic treatments. After getting PRP in McLean, benefits can last up to 9 months.
Exosomes are derived from stem cells and were carried over from the field of regenerative medicine. Like PRP, exosomes help rejuvenate the skin by tapping into the body’s innate powers of self-healing. At Dermestetics, we use exosomes to treat:
- Signs of aging
- Fine lines & wrinkles
- Hair loss
- Acne scars
Exosomes are not typically used as a treatment by themselves, but they are combined with other treatments. We often apply them topically in combination with treatments like microneedling, PRP for hair loss, Vampire Facials, and HydraFacials, but exosomes can also be combined with injection treatments for enhanced results.
Not all fillers stop at improving volume. Sculptra can improve the overall appearance and health of your skin, too. In addition to boosting volume where you need it the most, Sculptra injections also send your collagen production into hyperdrive.
Increased collagen production can make your skin look and feel both softer and firmer. As we age, our bodies produce less and less collagen. So, when more gets produced, the resulting effect is overall rejuvenation of the treatment area.
Sculptra can be used for:
- Reducing fine lines & wrinkles
- Improving sagging and/or depressed cheekbones
- Restoring lost volume
- Contouring the buttocks
Most dermal fillers deliver long-lasting results, but Sculptra is definitely on the longer end, with results lasting for 2 years or more. While the number of vials and appointments vary depending on the needs and goals of the individual, some of our patients need only 1 Sculptra treatment session to achieve results that can be maintained for years with occasional touch-up appointments.
Not all injectables in McLean target specific cosmetic or health concerns or even specific areas. Vitamin injections improve your overall wellness by replenishing your body’s vital nutrients. When your body isn’t getting the vitamins it needs, your immune system suffers, your skin suffers, and you feel awful.
It can be incredibly difficult to get all the right nutrients from diet alone. And by the time you realize your levels are low, it can be especially hard to raise them—even with supplements. The reason for this is that a lot of vitamins and minerals get lost on their way through the digestive system. Your body eliminates most of them, and only a small fraction make their way to your bloodstream.
With vitamin injections, on the other hand, your body is able to process almost everything. As a result, your whole body feels the difference. Some of the issues vitamin injections can help with include:
- Lowered immunity
- Dull skin
- Lack of energy
- Slow recovery
- Poor metabolism
Vitamin injections can also be used to help prepare your body for surgery. A healthier body recovers faster.
The specific number of vitamin injections needed varies from patient to patient. Dermestetics offers a variety of vitamin and nutrient injectables in McLean, including:
- Tri-Immune injections for promoting and maintaining a healthy immune response.
- Lipo-Mino injections for assisting with fat burning and appetite suppression.
- Glutathione injections for improving skin health and tightness.
- B-12 injections for improving cognitive function, concentration, and energy levels.
These natural injectables can be a great way to improve your overall health and well-being, helping your body do what it’s supposed to.
