What are injectables?
Injectables are substances or medications that Dr. Knott delivers into your skin via a very fine needle and syringe. With so many available injectables, she can make a big difference to your appearance and treat certain features without performing surgery or subjecting you to weeks or even months of downtime. The treatments are minimally invasive and require very little preparation and aftercare.
At Mill Valley Dermatology, Dr. Knott skillfully plans and performs all injectable treatments herself. She doesn’t hand off the service to a nurse, physician assistant, or medical aesthetician. Instead, she uses her expansive knowledge of dermatology and injectable treatments to deliver the best possible results and to help you avoid unwanted side effects.
Which injectables are available?
Dr. Knott offers several high-end injectables at Mill Valley Dermatology for patients who want to make a difference to their appearance without surgery or incisions of any kind. After a review of your goals, Dr. Knott might recommend one or more of these injectable treatments:
Botulinum toxin injectables
Botulinum toxin injectables, like Botox® and Xeomin®, contain a miniscule amount of a powerful neurotoxin called botulinum toxin. Botulinum toxin stops the signals between your nerves and muscles that cause your muscles to flex, even when you’re not thinking about it. She delivers the injections to specific muscles to reduce facial wrinkles and fine lines without affecting your ability to make facial expressions.
Injectable dermal fillers like the RHA collection have a remarkable number of abilities. They all contain hyaluronic acid to add more volume to your skin. Using dermal fillers alone, Dr. Knott can reduce large wrinkles and lines, plump your lips, plump your cheeks, improve facial symmetry, and even make your hands look more youthful and less bony.
How should I prepare for treatment with injectables?
Preparing for injectable treatments is typically simple and doesn’t involve stepping very far outside your normal routine. You should schedule a cosmetic consultation before any treatment with Dr. Knott to discuss your goals, your health, and the steps you’ll need to take to prepare for your treatment.
Leading up to your appointment, she might tell you to:
- Avoid certain medications and supplements
- Adjust your dosage of certain medications
- Stop smoking
- Stay hydrated
- Remove your makeup before your appointment
Dr. Knott answers all of your questions about your treatment beforehand so you know exactly what to expect and how to prepare.
