Which Injectable is Right For You?

"Embracing Enhancements" is no longer a well-kept secret. In fact, if you haven't explored the world of non-surgical cosmetic treatments yet, you might be among the last of your friends to do so. 

Over time, it becomes increasingly challenging to ignore the noticeable signs of aging reflected in the mirror—those fine lines around your eyes or lips, a slightly sunken appearance, or perhaps some mild sagging. In the past, options for turning back the clock without surgical intervention were limited. However, today, numerous nonsurgical cosmetic procedures can help mitigate the effects of time on your face. But with a variety of injectables available, which one is the perfect fit for you? These versatile beauty products offer effective solutions for addressing various visible signs of aging. To begin, let's delve into common aging concerns and identify the most suitable treatments.

Learn About Cosmetic Injections

This cosmetic procedure involves injecting specific muscles to temporarily diminish the appearance of expression-induced lines. By blocking nerve impulses to the treated muscles, it delivers genuine, noticeable results without the need for surgery or any recovery period, making it an ideal choice for many patients.

This treatment is regarded as a safe and effective solution for addressing signs of aging skin. Typical injection sites include horizontal lines on the forehead, vertical lines between the eyebrows, and the "crow's feet" at the corners of the eyes. Botulinum products have demonstrated their effectiveness as the premier non-surgical method for facial rejuvenation, capable of producing remarkable improvements in your overall appearance.

Consider Cosmetic Injections for:

  1. Reducing excessive facial wrinkles.

  2. Smoothing prominent wrinkles or furrows on your forehead.

  3. Minimizing fine lines or "crow's feet" around your eyes.

  4. Addressing a vertical "frown line" between your eyebrows.

Cosmetic injections are a versatile treatment option that can be used to address various areas of the face and some medical conditions. Here are some common areas and concerns that can be treated with cosmetic injections:

  • Forehead Lines: Cosmetic injections can smooth horizontal lines on the forehead, often referred to as forehead wrinkles or worry lines.

  • Glabellar Lines: These vertical lines between the eyebrows, known as "frown lines" or "11 lines," can be softened with cosmetic injections.

  • Crow's Feet: Cosmetic injections are effective in reducing the fine lines and wrinkles that appear at the outer corners of the eyes.

  • Brow Lift: Cosmetic injections can be used to lift and shape the eyebrows, giving a more youthful and alert appearance.

  • Bunny Lines: These are lines that form on the sides of the nose when you scrunch your nose, and cosmetic injections can help relax them.

  • Lip Lines: Cosmetic injections can reduce the appearance of fine lines around the lips, commonly known as "lipstick lines" or "smoker's lines."

  • Dimpled Chin: Cosmetic injections can smooth the chin by relaxing the mentalis muscle, reducing the appearance of a "dimpled" or "pebble" chin.

  • Jawline Slimming: Cosmetic injections can be used to relax the masseter muscles, creating a slimmer appearance along the jawline.

FILLERS
About Dermal Fillers

Most signs of aging in the face—wrinkles, lines, and crow’s feet—can be reversed by targeting volume in specific areas. Dermal fillers, also called injectable fillers and soft-tissue fillers, are aesthetic products approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to help add volume and shape a natural, youthful facial appearance. Only licensed physicians, physician assistants, and nurses can perform dermal filler injections in the US.

Dermal fillers are safe and convenient. They’re made with a base ingredient of hyaluronic acid (HA), collagen, or some type of biosynthetic polymer—all naturally occurring substances. They’re not permanent, but some will produce results that last more than a year.

Dermal fillers are used to add volume. They help the body deliver nutrients to the skin, which also helps skin retain moisture. With dermal fillers, we can restore softness and smooth out things like:

  • Wrinkles

  • Cheek depressions

  • Deep lines from the nose to the mouth that show up as you get older

  • Acne scars

  • Frown lines

  • Scarring

  • Worry lines

  • Crow’s feet

  • Marionette lines

  • Lip borders

PDO Threads - Smoothing and Lifting

The PDO Thread Lift procedure safely and instantly lifts up loose skin on the face, and neck with minimal downtime. Most popular treatment areas are the brows, cheeks (midface), jowls, and upper neck.

Thread Lift is one the most effective ways to lift loose skin without surgery. As we age, the effects of gravity become more noticeable on our faces, especially as our facial support structure weakens and we lose facial fat. The areas that are generally affected are the eyebrows, areas around the eyes, the cheeks, the jowls, and the neck. The result is a longer, more square-shaped, and older-looking face.

Ideal candidates for thread lifts include:

  • People with minimal signs of aging who need just a small lift. Good candidates are those patients who are starting to see some droopiness of the brow, cheeks, jowls and/or neck and would like to see a lift effect but do not want the risk, scars, or recovery of a real browlift, facelift, or neck lift operation.

  • People who have had some relapse from a previous plastic surgery procedure such as a facelift or neck lift.

  • People who do not wish to undergo a surgical facelift or neck lift for various reasons such as not wanting a prolonged recovery of a stand facelift or do not wish to spend money on an expensive facelift.

Masseter's Injection Treatment

Stop teeth clenching and grinding while slimming your face!

Wide jaws, pain, and migraines are unnecessary - Dr. Kathryn Ryan at Parkway Prosthodontics may have the treatment you’re looking for with the Masseters treatment. This procedure is a multi-tasker, from non-surgical jawline slimming to drug-free pain relief. 

Masseter Injections are frequently used to treat two types of concerns.

  1. Patients who complain of “grinding my teeth” (Bruxism-TMJ). Patients usually opt for this treatment when other solutions are ineffective in controlling the aches, pain, and associated headaches due to grinding their teeth. TMD (temporomandibular disorder) can cause pain in your jaw joint and in the muscles that control jaw movement.

  2. Jawline injections in the masseter muscle help to decrease the size. Most individuals with large muscles clench their teeth at night (unaware sometimes), chew gum excessively, or are weight lifters- deeming this treatment ideal.

Masseter injections make the surgical option less popular, as people tend to opt for the decision that doesn’t require undergoing the knife! A large muscle may require a few jawline injection sessions; moreover, it depends on the muscle size as the treatment differs from person to person

If you thought this was a time-consuming process, including a plethora of consultations, and strenuous hours of treatment. Don’t worry! A masseter session takes less than half an hour, including the consultation typically. This significantly reduces the time frame and adds convenience to the patient. Now, at Parkway Prosthodontics in Jacksonville, FL we can slim your jaw and ease pain without the need for invasive surgery.

About Kybella®

KYBELLA® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells in the treatment area under the chin to improve your profile.

How KYBELLA® Works

KYBELLA® contains synthetic deoxycholic acid as its active ingredient, which replicates the naturally occurring molecule in the body responsible for breaking down and absorbing dietary fat. When KYBELLA® is administered via injections into the submental fat beneath the chin, it effectively eradicates fat cells, leading to a visible reduction in submental fullness, and since these fat cells are permanently destroyed, there is typically no need for additional treatment once your desired aesthetic outcome is achieved.

What to expect with KYBELLA®

Before starting treatment, your healthcare specialist will examine the area under and around your chin to determine if KYBELLA® is right for you. Then, your specialist will tailor your treatment to the amount of fat under the chin and your aesthetic goals.

Will I need time to recover?

Following the procedure, it's typical to encounter swelling, bruising, or numbness in the area beneath your chin, and it's crucial to promptly inform your healthcare provider if you notice any concerns, especially if you observe issues like an uneven smile, facial muscle weakness, difficulty swallowing, or any complications at the injection site, such as bruising, hair loss, open sores (ulcers), or tissue cell death (necrosis). If you happen to notice open sores or drainage in the treated area, it is advisable to promptly reach out to your healthcare provider for assistance.

How is KYBELLA® administered?

Kybella® is exclusively administered by a healthcare specialist who has received training in its application. During each session, you'll undergo a series of small injections beneath your chin, typically lasting around 15 to 20 minutes. The precise quantity of injections will be tailored to your specific submental fat level and the desired outcome you seek for your profile.

KYBELLA® may be right for you if:

Kybella could be a suitable option if you're troubled by submental fullness, commonly called a double chin, and it affects your self-confidence or appearance, but you prefer a non-surgical solution even though you maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine.

What should I tell my doctor before treatment??

Before receiving KYBELLA®, tell your healthcare provider about all of your medical conditions, including if you:

  • Have had or plan to have surgery on your face, neck, or chin

  • Have had cosmetic treatments on your face, neck, or chin

  • Have had or have medical conditions in or near the neck area

  • Have had or have trouble swallowing

  • Have bleeding problems

  • Are pregnant or plan to become pregnant (it is not known if KYBELLA® will harm your unborn baby)

  • Are breastfeeding or plan to breastfeed (it is not known if KYBELLA® passes into your breast milk)

  • Are taking any medications, especially blood thinners

If you're ready to take the first step toward achieving a more confident and refined profile with Kybella treatment, we invite new patients to contact us at Parkway Prosthodontics in Jacksonville, FL.. Our knowledgeable team will guide you through the process, address any questions or concerns you may have, and customize a treatment plan tailored to your unique goals.
