The Benefits of Dermal Fillers and Neurotoxins

Injectables and Dermal Fillers

Many people are faced with the common effects of aging including facial wrinkles, creases and folds, thin or flat lips, and hollow areas under the eyes, temples, and cheeks. Fortunately, there are numerous injectable treatments like Botox and dermal fillers available to instantly reverse the signs of aging; earning injectables the nickname “liquid facelift”.

These non-surgical treatments work in various ways to provide volume and lift to targeted problem areas – smoothing out wrinkles and lines, plumping flat lips, and correcting hollow areas. Today’s injectables have the power to provide complete facial rejuvenation, giving patients a more fresh and youthful appearance.

Benefits of Injectables

Injectable treatments are fast and relatively painless, requiring little to no recovery time. In fact, many of our patients complete a full treatment during their lunch hour. Injectables are also less expensive compared to traditional cosmetic surgery. The combination of no downtime and minimal cost makes injectable treatments a great alternative to surgery for correcting the effects of aging.

Vollure is the perfect filler for the lines alongside the lips, under the cheeks. It fills without adding too much volume to the bottom of the face. Our client was absolutely thrilled with the results.

Types of Injectables

The availability of so many different types of injectables can be overwhelming. While reading a brief overview of the different types of injectables, please keep in mind that each injectable provides specific benefits which may or may not be appropriate for your individual goals. Our medical team will tailor a custom anti-aging treatment for your unique needs. Contact us to schedule an appointment today.

Neurotoxins – Jeuveau, aka Newtox

Neuromuscular toxins are used for smoothing deep, persistent lines and wrinkles that develop over time. These injectables are derived from a family of neurotoxins that prevent nerve signals in muscles from contracting; they relax the facial muscles that cause lines and wrinkles. The positive effects of treatment by neuromuscular-based injectables usually lasts between 3 and 6 months.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are another great option for treating wrinkles and hollow areas associated with facial aging. Today, there are many different types of dermal fillers to choose from:

Hyaluronic acid (HA) Based Dermal Fillers

The most popular class of dermal fillers is based on Hyaluronic Acid (HA), a molecule found naturally in human skin. By binding water molecules, Hyaluronic acid based products add volume under the skin to smooth wrinkles and folds, plump lips, and remove scars. The effects of dermal fillers usually last between 4 and 6 months.

We offer various HA fillers such as Juvederm Voluma®, Volbella®, Vollure®.Ultra and Ultra Plus.


Kybella® is the first and only non-surgical treatment approved by the FDA for treating fullness under the chin (double chin). Kybella™ causes the rapid destruction and absorption of fat, leaving a firm jawline without the necessary recovery time of other treatments like liposuction or neck lift surgery.

Lip Augmentation

Injectables and Dermal Fillers

Full, attractive lips are a symbol of beauty and youth. Whether you are seeking the voluminous “Hollywood” lip, seeking to define your own natural lip or looking to restore volume that you once had, lip augmentation options exist to achieve all of these results. Lip augmentation can also be helpful for people who have developed “smoker’s lines” around their mouth.

Lip Fillers

Also, using Hyaluronic Acid like stated above lip fillers are a safe and natural option for lip augmentation. Here at Med Physique we offer a variety of HA-based fillers ranging from the thinnest and most natural to more robust volumizing products. After the consultation, evaluating your specific goals, our healthcare team can help you to decide which products and the amounts that are perfect for you.

Lipo-C Injections to Stimulate Weight Loss

Lipo-C Injection is commonly prescribed for:

  • Help stimulate the breakdown of lipids (fat) during metabolism
  • Weight loss
  • To reduce the accumulation of excess fat in the liver and other tissues
  • Boost energy

Lipotropic compounds are used on the potential for release of fat deposits in some parts of the body. The lipotropic agents included in this injection are:

  • Methionine, which helps the liver maintain the optimal ability to process fatty acids
  • Choline, which stimulates the mobilization of fatty acids and prevents their deposition in a given part of the body; and,
  • Inositol, which aids in the transport of fat into and out of the liver and intestinal cells, acts synergistically with choline, exhibiting more lipotropic activity than when administered alone.)

Typically, these compounds are administered in concert. Injections can be administered up to twice a week. B12 is purported by its users and practitioners to help speed up overall metabolic processes and create a greater feeling of overall energy & well-being. Because these lipotropics are structurally and functionally closely related to the B-vitams, they are often employed together in the hope of potentiating the potential for fat-loss, thus while the MIC mixture and B vitamin(s) are often injected separately, they are part of the same overall injection cycle. The non-vitamin compounds (MIC) that are injected into the body stimulate the liver into optimizing the process of metabolism, elevate the movement of and utilization of fat, and boost the metabolic power of the body for awhile.

Other compounds are included as an attempt to further potentiate these effects:

  • L-Carnitine
  • Thiamine HCl (vitamin B1)
  • Dexpanthenol (vitamin B5)
