Without a doubt, one of the most exciting recent innovations in aesthetic medicine is the development of injectable products. Administered just beneath the skin, these products come in a number of different formulations to treat many of the most common concerns related to aging. Today, injectable products are used for so much more than treating wrinkles. Here, familiarize yourself with products like JUVÉDERM®, BOTOX®, and the other options at our Albany, New York medical spa.
BOTOX belongs to a class of drugs called neuromodulators. Instead of physically filling in wrinkles, BOTOX reduces muscle activity where it's injected. This makes it best for reducing the appearance of wrinkles that are caused by repeated facial expressions, including crow's feet, forehead lines, and vertical lines between the eyebrows.
By far the most expansive category of injectable products, fillers include popular brand names such as JUVÉDERM and Restylane®. These products often, but not always, use a smooth gel formulation of hyaluronic acid to fill lines and wrinkles from beneath the skin. Certain fillers can also be used to add shape to the lips, volume to cheeks, and more definition to the jawline. At Spa One, our aesthetic professionals can help you choose the right option for you.
Revolutionary KYBELLA relies on a naturally occurring active ingredient called deoxycholic acid to dissolve fat beneath the chin. With a series of injections, you can enjoy a smoother chin and jawline without surgical intervention.
