Injectables Q & A

What are cosmetic injectables?

Cosmetic injectables offer a temporary solution to the signs of aging. One of the most popular forms of cosmetic treatment, dermal fillers and neuromodulators offer natural-looking results for people seeking to reverse the signs of aging.

At POSH Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, Dr. Gbulie provides both dermal fillers and botulinum derivatives, or neuromodulators. 

Dermal filler and neuromodulator injectables can be combined to give you the effect of a facelift without surgery. If you have significant creases and wrinkles or sagging skin, plastic surgery may still be the best option.

How do dermal filler injectables work?

Dermal fillers contain substances that help plump your skin, making lines and wrinkles less apparent. These injectables can also fill in areas that look gaunt or thin with age.

The different formulations of dermal fillers address specific concerns associated with aging, including:

  • Nasolabial folds
  • Chin creases
  • Parentheses lines
  • Thin lips
  • Sagging jawline
  • Hollow cheeks
  • Under-eye shadows or hollows
  • Loose skin on the backs of your hands

Dr. Gbulie uses his expert eye and injection techniques to determine exactly which formulas are right for your goals and needs. He uses a very small needle to administer the optimum quantity to treatment areas.

You’ll see the results of dermal filler injections immediately. The effects last six months to several years, depending on the type of filler and procedure.

How do neuromodulator injectables work?

Neuromodulators are botulinum-based injectables like Botox® and Dysport®. The formulas contain a purified form of a neurotoxin that blocks the signals going from your facial nerves to the muscles that cause lines and wrinkles when you smile, squint, or frown.

Neuromodulators effectively relax your face to smooth out creases and lines. Dr. Gbulie may recommend these injectables to treat:  

  • Frown lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Forehead wrinkles
  • Neck cords
  • Pin cushion look to the chin

The injection process is quick and quite tolerable. You’ll start to notice results in 24-48 hours, with the full effects seen in about seven days. The results typically last between 3-6 months.
