Are You a Candidate?

Men that are interested in injectable treatments are usually in the middle years of life with early signs of aging they would like to nip in the bud. They should be in relatively good health without any known allergies to the ingredients in the formulations. Dr. Saad will conduct a thorough review of your medical history to ensure that injectable treatments will be safe for you.

You should also have an accurate expectation of what these procedures can do. Injectable procedures offer subtle results, which are usually the type of improvement men are seeking. The results are temporary, so you will have to commit to a regular treatment schedule to maintain those results.

Before Your Injectable Treatment

Your consultation with Dr. Saad usually takes place at the same appointment where your procedure is performed. After looking at your medical history and discussing your precise concerns and expectations for treatment, Dr. Saad will advise you on the injectable he believes will provide you with the best possible results. If you decide you want to undergo the treatment, you can usually do so before leaving the office.

Injectable Options

Dr. Saad offers three basic types of injectable treatments:

Wrinkle Relaxers

These formulations go by commercial names like Botox® and Dysport®. Small amounts of the botulinum toxin are the secret to the success of these formulas. The toxin relaxes the facial muscles that lead to the formation of wrinkles, smoothing away lines in the process. Men typically request this treatment for horizontal forehead lines or vertical creases that form between the eyebrows, known as frown lines.

Dermal Fillers

While dermal fillers are another anti-aging tool, these injectables work in a different fashion than wrinkle relaxers. These formulations contain active ingredients like hyaluronic acid that, when injected into the inner dermal layers, offer vital support to the skin’s structure that smooths away wrinkles from the inside out. Some fillers also restore volume to areas like the cheeks and jawline. In addition to their anti-aging benefits, Dr. Saad also adeptly uses these formulations to correct minor imperfections and asymmetries around the nose and chin.

Kybella®

This revolutionary injectable treatment is specifically designed to address the fat that forms under the chin, often as a result of the aging process. Known as submental fat, the appearance of a double chin can be just as bothersome to men as other signs of aging, such as loose skin and wrinkles. Submental fat can also detract from your strong, defined jawline. The medication contains deoxycholic acid, which breaks down fat cells under the chin so they can be permanently eliminated by the body.

The right injectable treatment for you will depend on the area you want to be treated and the results you are hoping to achieve. Dr. Saad will determine which of these formulations will produce the best results for you. In some cases, a combination of formulations may be used to create the best possible outcome.

About Your Procedure

Injectable treatments do not involve any anesthesia, and the injections typically take 15 minutes or less to administer. Because a relatively small needle is used for the procedure, you should not feel much – if any – discomfort during your session. At the end of your treatment, you should be able to resume your regular activities right away with little or no indication that you just had a procedure performed. The only exception is Kybella, which involves multiple injections. This treatment takes more time to perform, and you may be somewhat sore and swollen for a few days after treatment.

Getting Results

Results of injectable treatments are often seen right away and will continue to improve in the days following your procedure. The duration of those results will depend upon a few different factors. As a general rule, wrinkle relaxers last about 3-4 months before another treatment session is needed. Dermal filler results may last for 6-12 months, depending on the formulation used, the treatment area, and how quickly your body absorbs the filler.

If you are looking for a subtle way to quickly create a more youthful appearance without sacrificing your rugged masculinity, Dr. Saad can administer injectable treatments to suit your facial shape and proportions. To find out more, contact Dr. Saad’s office to schedule your consultation.
