Continuous muscle movement and facial volume loss results in creases and thinning of the soft tissues. When injecting FDA approved dermal fillers into certain areas of the face, a smoother, fuller, more youthful appearance can be achieved. Other types of injectibles can be used to reduce the fullness due to fat beneath the chin.
Typically, small amounts of filler are carefully injected into specific areas of the face. Fillers can also be used to increase the size and/or plumpness of the lips directly. Kybella® is given as a series of injections into the fat under the chin.
Results from Juvederm® may last approximately six months to one year. Kybella® is administered over a series of treatments with permanent effects.
Patients may experience bruising, swelling, and/or discomfort at the injection sites; thus it is recommended to schedule an injection one week ahead of an important meeting or event.
For many non-surgical cosmetic procedures, the procedure can be completed during your initial visit. If you are interested in learning more about any non-surgical cosmetic procedures, including injectibles or fillers, contact Dr. Potter through the online contact form, or call 512-867-6211.
