At Sculpted MD, we utilize FDA-approved, top-of-the-line dermal fillers and injectables to unveil your natural beauty. We work to help reduce the natural signs of aging and sculpt beautiful, natural facial features. A non-invasive and non-surgical injectable facial treatment, administered by our experienced, licensed cosmetic professionals, allows you to harness your confidence!
Dermal fillers are designed to fill in static wrinkles, which are present on the face while no facial expression is being made. Additionally, thin lips and areas of thinning skin (such as cheeks) are addressed with a dermal filler. Patients achieve a full, youthful and rejuvenated appearance via the insertion of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid in a dermal filler.
Neuromodulators, like Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin work to specifically target and soften dynamic wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles are formed when the muscles in your face contract to make an expression. The neurotoxin present in these injectables freezes these muscles and prevents them from contracting — which eases wrinkles and provides a natural, youthful complexion.
Age, gender, and skin type have no restraints over dermal fillers and cosmetic injections. Note that patients who are nonsmokers will heal more quickly and enjoy better, longer-lasting results due to the facial expressions made when smoking.
Any patient desiring to improve the appearance of sagging, wrinkling, or aging skin may be a good candidate for dermal fillers. Additionally, a patient with thin lips or desiring lush lips benefit from dermal fillers.
Patients with moderate to severe brow furrows, crow’s feet, and expression lines are ideal candidates for Neuromodulator injections, such as Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin.
Dermal fillers provide patients with an immediately effective yet temporary effect. Depending on the treated area, dermal fillers may last anywhere from 6 months to 2 years. You can expect your Neuromodulator injection to last 3–4 months on average. Patients may be able to extend the lifetime of their treatments by having a Neuromodulator like Botox injections applied to an area first, immediately followed by a dermal filler.
Dermal fillers and Neuromodulator injections alike are prefaced with a consultation to identify medical history, skin analysis, treatment areas, and skin goals. Your unique treatment plan will also be developed at your consultation.
As your dermal filler or Neuromodulator injection treatment begins, the treatment area will be numbed with a topical anesthetic. The location, status and amount of areas being treated will determine the necessary pressure and amount of injections you will receive. Your treatment will be short, lasting around 10–30 minutes and you are free to resume normal activity after your procedure. However, with both, you should refrain from intense physical exertion for 24–48 hours and applying pressure to your face. Patients who received a dermal filler will notice immediate results, while patients who received Neuromodulator will need to wait 3–7 days to enjoy the full effects.
