Revitalize Your Appearance with Injectables
Injectables have become a highly sought-after treatment in the cosmetic field. Both women and men appreciate that injectable fillers and wrinkle relaxers offer a completely non-surgical approach to enhancing their looks.
Injectables in Baltimore
Injectables offer great versatility, smoothing wrinkles and enhancing specific facial areas. For more information and to book an appointment at Dr. Tag's Baltimore clinic, please reach out to our team.
Juvederm offers a diverse range of products tailored for facial rejuvenation, enhancement, and augmentation. This collection of injectables is excellent for:
- Enhancing cheek volume and lift (with results lasting up to two years).
- Smoothing out wrinkles and facial creases (results lasting from one year to 18 months, depending on the product).
- Softening vertical lines above the upper lip (results lasting up to one year).
- Augmenting and plumping thin or aging lips (results lasting up to one year).
Based on your aesthetic objectives, you might find one of these Juvederm products suitable:
- Voluma XC
- Vollure XC
- Ultra Plus XC
- Ultra XC
- Volbella XC
Juvederm products are designed to rejuvenate cheeks and lips and to diminish wrinkles. They work by boosting volume through hyaluronic acid (HA), a component that attracts moisture. The HA in Juvederm is similar to the HA found in skin, tissues, joints, and other body parts. It binds with water molecules to hydrate and plump the skin effectively.
Restylane dermal fillers, available in Baltimore, are perfect for:
- Enhancing cheek volume.
- Volumizing aging hands.
- Reducing smile lines/marionette lines (lines around the corners of the mouth).
- Softening nasolabial folds (lines from the nose to mouth corners).
- Minimizing vertical lines above the upper lip.
- Plumping thin lips.
Similar to Juvederm, Restylane's effectiveness comes from hyaluronic acid. The Restylane family includes various injectables such as:
- Restylane Lyft
- Restylane Refyne
- Restylane Defyne
- Restylane Kysse
Restylane injections, like those from Juvederm, typically last from 6 to 18 months, varying with the specific product and treatment area.
Dr. Tag provides Sculptra, an injectable made from poly-L-lactic acid. Sculptra works to replenish diminished collagen and is effective in addressing smile lines, marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and lines around the chin.
A significant advantage of Sculptra is that its results can endure for as long as two years!
wrinkle relaxer is effective for:
- Frown lines and glabellar lines, known as the vertical "11s" between the eyebrows.
- Horizontal creases on the forehead.
- Crow’s feet around the corners of the eyes.
- Bunny lines on the nose's sides.
- Chin dimpling.
BOTOX® differs from Juvederm and Restylane as it is not a dermal filler. Instead, this botulinum toxin type A injection temporarily paralyzes muscle activity that leads to facial wrinkles, rather than filling the wrinkles like a dermal filler.
The effects of this injectable typically last three to four months, after which additional treatments are necessary to sustain the results. Dysport is an alternative brand that functions similarly to BOTOX® Cosmetic.
Kybella is an injectable solution designed to dissolve excess fat beneath the chin, known as submental fullness.
The process involves Kybella, composed of deoxycholic acid, a substance naturally occurring in the body that helps break down dietary fat. When injected into the targeted area, Kybella permanently destroys fat cells.
Once you achieve your desired outcome, further injections are unnecessary due to the permanent destruction of the fat cells. Typically, multiple injection sessions are beneficial.
These sessions are spaced one month apart. Depending on the volume of excess chin fat, Dr. Tag might suggest one to six sessions.
Kybella offers a completely non-surgical method to get rid of a double chin. The injection process is quick, taking only about 15 minutes, and you can resume your usual activities right away. Post-treatment effects like bruising, swelling, and numbness for a few days are common.
