Injectables Q & A

What are injectables?

Cosmetic injectables reduce wrinkles, fine lines, loss of volume, and other signs of aging to restore a youthful appearance and help you gain confidence. Dr. Bloch injects specific substances just beneath your skin to produce dramatic anti-aging results.

Cosmetic injectables available at Body By Bloch include:

  • Botox®
  • Xeomin®
  • Juvéderm®
  • Sculptra®
  • Restylane®
  • Kybella®

Botox and Xeomin are injectables made of botulinum toxin type A. They paralyze facial muscles associated with smiling, frowning, and other facial expressions. Juvederm, Restylane, and Sculptra add volume to sunken-in areas, and Kybella can destroy fat cells under the chin.

How can injectables improve the appearance of my face?

Cosmetic injectables at Body By Bloch help:

  • Diminish crow’s feet, forehead lines, and other facial lines
  • Reduce other signs of aging
  • Revitalize skin
  • Plump the lips
  • Add volume to sunken-in cheeks
  • Diminish vertical lip lines
  • Reduce fat under the chin
  • Create a younger-looking appearance
  • Smooth and lift the skin

Injectable procedures are fast and painless but produce dramatic results without surgery or downtime.

Are injectables right for me?

To find out if cosmetic injectables are the right procedure for you, Dr. Bloch reviews your medical history and examines your skin in problem areas. He also discusses your desired outcome. Dr. Bloch might recommend more than one type of injectable to help you achieve optimal results.

What happens during my procedure?

Right before cosmetic injections, Dr. Bloch can numb the treatment area, so you don’t feel any discomfort. He injects substances just beneath your skin at targeted areas to give you the results you desire. Injections usually take a few minutes to complete.

What should I expect after treatment?

After treatment, you may experience redness or swelling at the injection site. Apply ice to the area as needed. There’s no downtime after receiving injectables, so you can resume normal daily activities immediately.

While you may notice results from fillers immediately, botulinum toxin injectables might take a few days to produce the desired outcome. Kybella treatment can take longer. Dr. Bloch might recommend a series of injectables to help you achieve the best results, or combining injectables with another cosmetic procedure.
