Injectables Q&A


Injectables are a category of medical aesthetic treatment that are placed within your skin using a sterile needle and syringe. They are among the most popular cosmetic treatments in the world, likely because they deliver impressive results without the need for invasive surgical procedures.

It’s important to partner with a medical professional when getting injectable treatments. Dermatologists have the skills, training, and experience needed to understand precisely where to place injectable treatments, and how much of each substance to inject.

When you choose a board-certified dermatologist, you reduce your risk of negative side effects like bruising, infection, and tissue damage. Board-certified dermatologists have extensive training in preventing and treating complications.

This class of injectables is formulated from a substance that inhibits normal muscle motion. When injected into targeted facial muscles, treatments like Botox®, Dysport®, and Xeomin® prevent those muscles from pulling the skin into lines, folds, and wrinkles.
Dermal fillers

Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that work to smooth and plump your skin. There are many options to choose from, including fillers like Juvederm®, Restylane®, and Sculptra®. Each formulation is designed for use in a specific region of the face. Fillers help replace lost collagen and promote new collagen development.

Sculptra can also be used for body augmentation (hands, arms, thighs, abdomen, buttocks) as well, which Dr. Kunal Angra specializes in.

Combining neurotoxin injectables and dermal fillers is a process known as a “liquid facelift.” This approach can create impressive results without any form of surgical intervention.

Kybella® is the first and only injectable treatment that permanently eliminates a portion of targeted fat cells. Currently FDA-approved for use in the area beneath the chin, Kybella can substantially reduce fullness, commonly called a “double chin.”

Kybella is formulated from a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule that helps break down dietary fat in your digestive system. When injected into the area beneath the chin, this substance performs the same function.

Injections destroy fat cells, causing them to release stored fat before being processed through your lymphatic system. Once gone, those fat cells will not regenerate. You’ll enjoy your refined profile for many years.
