Injectables

Cosmetic Injectables That Achieve Natural-Looking Results

If you’ve ever considered cosmetic injectables to smooth out wrinkles or improve sagging skin, you could be like many women who opted to avoid the risk of getting unnatural looking results. At Honu Women’s Health, our highly educated and trained physician, Dr. Sultan, personally administers all cosmetic injectables and uses her advanced knowledge of the workings of facial nerves and muscles to achieve natural-looking results. Rather than taking an aggressive approach toward completely erasing wrinkles, Dr. Sultan believes in administering the least amount of cosmetic injectables as possible. At Honu Women’s Health, you can rest assured knowing that safety is our top priority when administering injectable treatments.

Turn Back the Hands of Time Without Surgery

Injectables are the fastest way to achieve your skin-related goals without surgery or weeks of downtime. They can restore lost volume, smooth lines and soften creases or enhance facial contours. Millions of men and women choose this popular facial rejuvenation treatment, which can be a cost-effective way to enhance natural beauty. Although results are not permanent, it is safe to get cosmetic injectables as often as needed. Most patients find their results last between three and four months.

Injectables easily address several common issues, such as:

  • Lines around the nose and mouth (also known as marionette lines, parentheses and smile lines)
  • Loss of volume in the cheeks or temples
  • Brow furrows, crow’s feet and frown lines
  • Vertical lip lines and loss of volume in the lips
  • Chin creases
  • Asymmetry among facial features (such as a sagging brow)

Types of Cosmetic Injectables

At Honu Women’s Health, we offer injectables in the form of neuromodulators, dermal fillers and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). Dr. Sultan will determine the best injectable for you based on the area of skin you want to treat.

Neuromodulators

Commercially known as Botox and Dysport, neuromodulators are wrinkle-relaxing injections of botulinum toxin that are used to treat wrinkles, frown lines and crow’s feet. Botox and Dysport are both considered to be extremely safe for qualifying candidates and offer the convenience of being able to leave immediately and even return to work following treatment.

Botox® (onabotulinumtoxinA):

  • Treats moderate to severe frown lines.

Dysport® (abobotulinumtoxinA):

Dermal Fillers

For women who experience facial volume loss due to aging or other hormonal factors, dermal fillers are injectable, purified substances that can be used either in the dermis or deeper tissue layers to act like your body’s own naturally produced hyaluronic acid and fat pads. The result is visible correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds due to volume loss. Dr. Sultan primarily uses Juvederm® and Restylane® for natural-looking and long-lasting results.

Juvederm® (hyaluronic acid):

  • Adds volume to a different area of the face to lift cheeks, smooth parentheses lines, or plump the lips. The results are natural-looking and long-lasting.

PRP Therapy

As the epitome of customized care, PRP therapy uses the rich nutrients of your own blood to heal and rejuvenate damaged skin, grow new collagen and blood vessels and slow or reverse the signs of aging. It stimulates your body’s natural wound healing process and results in stronger, tighter and healthier skin. Your PRP can be applied topically to the skin or injected to stimulate new collagen production or hair growth if injected into the scalp. Additionally, nonsurgical vaginal tissue regeneration is made possible with PRP injections.

What to Expect With Cosmetic Injectables

Your appointment will only take a few minutes. It will likely take more time to apply the topical anesthetic and allow it to dry than it will take to conduct the injections themselves. Your procedure will happen in the comfort of our office, and most patients report little to no pain. While you will see some immediate results, it will take a few days to see peak results. You can even schedule your visit on your lunch break and return to work directly after the procedure. Common side effects include headaches, minor pain at the injection site or skin irritation, but most of these resolve after a few days.

To optimize your results from cosmetic injectables, you should avoid blood thinners two weeks before your treatment, especially if you bruise easily. Blood thinners include aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen, green tea and fish oils. You can also take an over-the-counter homeopathic medication called Arnica, which may help with bruising and swelling. Lastly, if you are preparing for an important event (such as a wedding or gala), you should plan for at least three to four weeks of recovery time.

Personalized Care

Women’s health encompasses more than just being free from illness, and at Honu Women’s Health, we believe it is more than obstetrics and gynecology—it’s feeling your best on the inside and embracing your outer beauty, too. That’s why we offer customized care for each patient with the goal of optimizing total body health. We understand that as an individual, you have unique health goals and concerns, which is why we never offer one-size-fits-all treatments.

As part of offering customized care unique to each patient, we want to help you achieve your specific skin goals. For many patients, that means combining the benefits of injectables with the long-lasting effects of skin resurfacing treatments. Fractional laser therapy, microneedling and dermalinfusion can be used to help regenerate healthier, more youthful-looking skin by boosting your skin’s natural collagen production to promote cell turnover and reveal smooth, supple skin. These types of treatments will help sustain the smoothing effects of injectables.

You can rest assured that at Honu Women’s Health, your cosmetic injectables and skin resurfacing treatments will be administered in the safest manner possible that aims to achieve a natural-looking outcome aligned with your unique goals.

We would love to develop a customized plan for you to help you achieve the skin of your dreams. Ask us about other skin care treatments that can be combined with cosmetic injectables for enhanced results.
