Heard about injectables, but want to learn more? This month’s Lunch & Learn on May 25 from 12-2 pm will discuss “The Artistry of Injectables.” The event features a live model demonstration with Pam Neitzel, owner and founder of Naples Laser and Medspa. She boasts more than 13 years experience in the industry and is a national trainer and educator on advanced techniques with injectables and laser techniques.

Injectables – What are the differences?

Both Botox and facial fillers are both effective methods of improving signs of aging. People often confuse them with each other and consider them to be synonymous. The truth is they tackle specific and different problems.

Botox’s primarily treats and prevents facial wrinkles. The FDA approved Botox as a cosmetic treatment for frown lines above the eyebrows and wrinkles. Botox reduces the activity of muscles in the face that cause wrinkles.

Facial fillers or dermal fillers get used to prevent or eliminate signs of aging in the face, such as wrinkles. Facial fillers fill trouble areas with collagen, which stimulates collagen growth in the face and also plumps and lifts the skin to replace collagen loss. This helps your skin achieve as youthful a look as possible and eliminates signs of aging that occur as a result of collagen depletion.

The important things to consider when choosing between Botox and facial fillers is what kind of wrinkles you want to get rid of and how you plan to do it. Botox remains the better choice for dynamic wrinkles as it will reduce their motion and visibility. These wrinkles occur when the face is in motion or making expression. They are usually positioned in the forehead and around the eyebrows. Facial fillers are ideal for static wrinkles, which are visible even when you relax your face and make no expressions. These areas appear depleted and sunken in and benefit from the fullness that facial fillers provide.

We offer many different types of injectables, including Belotero, Botox, Dysport, Juvederm, Juvederm Ultra Plus, Juvederm Voluma XC, Kybella, Radiesse, Restylane, Restylane Lyft, Restylane Silk and Sculptra at both our Bonita Springs and Naples locations.

Volbella

Volbella can give you fuller, smoother lips

Volbella Volbella by Juvaderm, a newly approved treatment by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for use in lips, can increase lip fullness and smooth in the lines around the lips.

If you or someone you know wants to reduce those lines around the lips caused by aging or smoking, this may be a great option. Volbella can help define the contour of the lip by accentuating the border of the lips and providing fullness. The treatment can also assist with asymmetrical lips by adding to one (upper or lower) in order to achieve balance and enhance the definition of the middle of the upper lip or “cupid’s bow.”

As we age, our skin loses its volume, hydration and elasticity – all of which promote a youthful appearance. Volbella is used to give volume and create contours on the face where it is needed, especially in the lips and around the mouth.

How Volbella works

Volbella is a softer, smoother gel than other lip fillers, able to mimic the natural feeling of the lips. The hyaluronic acid-based gel has Vycross technology which creates better lifting and support for more natural and longer lasting results. It also results in less water absorption, and therefore less swelling than other lip fillers.

The results of Volbella typically last for a year to 18 months, which makes it one of the longest lasting lip enhancement products on the market.

You may think that an injection in the lips would be quite painful due to the sensitivity of the skin in that area of the face. However, Volbella injections include Lidocaine, which helps to numb the lips short-term during the injections so discomfort is minimized. This makes the procedure more tolerable and comfortable for the patient.

The treatment is a quick process and can be completed in less than 15 minutes. There may be additional swelling for a few days after the procedure and some slight bruising at the site of the injections. The results can be seen immediately.

Volbella is a breakthrough for achieving better lip fullness and smoothing those lines around the mouth, and it can help recipients have more confidence with their appearance.

Naples Laser & Medspa is proud to add Volbella to its offerings. Want to give it a try? Give us a call at 239-228-7491 to schedule an appointment.
