Over the past decade, injectables for aesthetic enhancement have created a significant footprint in the cosmetic medical industry. The term injectables refers to a myriad of products used by physicians or mid-level healthcare providers to inject into the areas of the face or body to counteract the impact of aging.
KYBELLA: LIPOSUCTION IN A SYRINGE
I recently began using Kybella, 'liposuction in a syringe', to treat isolated areas of relative fat excess on the body. The injection is FDA approved for injection into the submental (below the chin) subcutaneous tissue to lyse fat cells.
How Kybella works: It's an FDA-approved injection containing a naturally occurring molecule that dissolves fat, which your body then flushes out. The best candidate is someone with good skin and a very distinct appearance of fat under the chin, the knees, bra-line, axillary 'puff', upper back, and medial thighs. What are the side effects? Kybella acts to lyse fat cells, causing inflammation that will result in tenderness and swelling in the area injected. It is possible to feel firmness and even numbness at the injection site, though this is temporary.
The cost: Kybella requires a series of three treatments (each four to six weeks apart), which costs around $3,600 in total.
Kybella injection series will provide a permanent reduction in fat, resulting in a long term, reduction in fat volume where it is injected. Call now and make an appointment for a consultation with Dr. James Rosing.
Botox® is now considered a critical part of any anti-aging regimen. Botox is truly a breakthrough treatment that not only reverses wrinkling but can actually prevent some aspects of wrinkling.
Botox is an injectable treatment that relaxes and minimizes fine lines. Done properly, it does not cause a ‘frozen’ look. We aim for a natural appearance.
Botox is most commonly performed for lines between the eyes, outside the eyes, and on the forehead, but we also use it in much smaller quantities on other areas of the face for more subtle anti-aging effects using advanced techniques. Everyone has different needs and quantities of units to achieve the result they desire. This requires individualized consultation. It is priced at $11/unit at Rosing Plastic Surgery, with $50 off to new patients. The price of the amount of Botox that is right for you is available with a consultation. A typical cost for just the outer eyes is $11 x 25 units = $275. Botox treatments typically last approximately 3-4 months.
Botox injections are performed by Dr. James Rosing.
If you are scheduled for an injection, taking Motrin, ibuprofen, aspirin, naproxen or other NSAIDS may increase your chance of bruising. If verified by your doctor, refrain from taking these medications for one week prior to any injectable procedure.
Dr. James Rosing is recognized by Allergan, the makers of Botox, Juvederm and Voluma as a Diamond Provider which is the highest achievable recognition given to healthcare providers.
Juvederm®, Restylane® and Belotero are hyaluronic-acid based dermal fillers. Hyaluronic acid is a normal part of human skin and therefore has an extremely low risk of allergy. At Rosing Plastic Surgery, we only use hyaluronic-acid based dermal fillers as the safety of our patients is our number one priority.
Dermal fillers ‘plump’ the skin by restoring volume that has been lost due to the aging process. Injection of dermal fillers was originally developed for the nasolabial folds, or “parenthesis” around the mouth. However, they can be used in a variety of other locations: for shaping the cheek bones, filling chin depressions, nose contouring, “sunken-in” temples, and deep lines between the eyes (in combination with Botox). In fact, these facial locations often obtain the most natural and long-lasting results with dermal fillers.
They are injected by Dr. James Rosing. Dermal fillers cost $600 per 1mL vial, and $400 per 0.55ml of Volbella (used to treat lines around the mouth and for lip definition. Most patients require 1 or 2mL for the nasolabial folds or lips or chin. Treatment of cheeks or temples may require 3 or 4mL. Most treatments last between 9 months – 1 year or longer.
