Injectables Q & A

What causes wrinkles and sagging skin?

As you age, your body doesn’t produce as much collagen, a basic building block of healthy skin. Less collagen causes your skin to sag, forming wrinkles and creases that make you look older.

A lack of collagen can also cause your face to lose volume over time, resulting in a less defined profile

You may also develop crow’s feet around your eyes and deep furrows in your forehead due to squinting or damage from the sun.

How does Botox work?

Botox is a prescription injectable treatment that temporarily paralyzes the contraction of muscles responsible for crow’s feet and forehead creases. As a result, your skin smooths out, eliminating the severity of lines and wrinkles around your eyes and forehead.

Treatment takes just a few minutes and doesn’t require any recovery or downtime. Dr. Harouni creates a custom treatment plan to address your specific cosmetic goals and give you natural-looking results. He may recommend maintenance treatments every few months to keep you looking young and healthy.

What are dermal fillers?

Dr. Harouni offers injectable dermal filler treatments, like Juvéderm, to address areas of lost volume in your face, neck, and hands.

Juvéderm is made of hyaluronic acid, a substance found naturally in your body that adds volume and softness to your skin. Dr. Harouni can use Juvéderm to add volume to your cheeks, lips, and other areas of your face affected by wrinkles or folds.

What is Kybella?

Kybella is a prescription injectable Dr. Harouni uses to address submental fat under your chin, the fat that creates a double chin appearance.

Made up of deoxycholic acid, a molecule found naturally in your body, Kybella breaks down excess fat. After an injection, the acid destroys fat cells, which your body then eliminates naturally without further treatment.

Fat continues to break down over time, reducing fullness under the chin. You can enjoy a noticeably slimmer, more contoured profile. Once destroyed, fat cells can’t regenerate, so you have long-lasting results.

Am I a good candidate for cosmetic injectables?

Dr. Harouni can determine which injectable treatment is right for you after an evaluation of your cosmetic goals and a review of your health history. He creates a customized treatment plan to address your specific needs and ensure you’re happy with your results.
