Valley Dermatology


The term “injectables” refers to non-surgical cosmetic procedures that involve the injection of substances into the skin to enhance facial features or correct imperfections for more youthful, plump, radiant skin. These treatments have grown in popularity due to their ability to provide quick, minimally invasive results for a variety of cosmetic concerns.

At Valley Dermatology, injectables are more than just solutions – they are pathways to enhancing your natural radiance. From smoothing away wrinkles and fine lines to sculpting your silhouette and addressing excessive sweating, our comprehensive range of injectables is tailored to meet your unique aesthetic goals.

Types Of Cosmetic Injectables

Injectables are a popular, safe and effective way to enhance the appearance of your skin. Valley Dermatology clients love the dramatic, yet natural results. Here is an overview of the most common injectables and what they are used for:

What Are The Benefits of Injectables?

One of the primary benefits of cosmetic injectables is that they can provide natural-looking results. Dermal fillers, for example, can enhance facial features while still maintaining a natural appearance. Botox can provide subtle improvements, resulting in a more youthful and refreshed look without appearing “overdone.”

At Valley Dermatology, our clients enjoy dramatic, beautiful results from cosmetic injectables without the need for surgical procedures, incisions or general anesthesia. Injectables are performed in-office in a relaxing environment and usually take less than an hour to complete. Additionally, most injectables have minimal downtime, allowing clients to resume their normal activities immediately after treatment.

How Injectables Work

At Valley Dermatology, we work with each client to determine which filler (or a combination of fillers and injectables) will yield the best results for your desired look. Here is a more in-depth look at treatments:

Botox & Dysport
Botox and Dysport are both injectable neurotoxins that work by temporarily blocking nerve signals to the muscles that cause wrinkles and fine lines. When injected into specific facial muscles, Botox and Dysport cause those muscles to relax, smoothing out wrinkles and reducing the appearance of fine lines. Both are quick, easy and painless treatment options with results lasting for several months. These injectables can be used for wrinkles and fine lines in the forehead, around the eyes (crow’s feet), around the lips, on the side of the nose, for marionette lines near the mouth and in the chin to correct dimpling. These two injectables can also be safely used for the treatment of excessive sweating, a condition known as hyperhidrosis. They are injected into the specific area to block the signals that stimulate sweat glands. The treatment area for this condition is the underarms (axillae).

Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable treatment that is used to reduce submental fat, also known as a “double chin.” It contains a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a substance that is naturally produced by the body to help break down and absorb dietary fat.

When Kybella is injected into the submental fat, it destroys the fat cells, which are then naturally eliminated by the body over the course of several weeks. The treatment is typically administered in a series of two to four sessions, spaced several weeks apart, and results in a more defined jawline and a reduction in the appearance of a double chin.


While SkinVive falls within the category of dermal fillers, its mechanism differs from traditional volume-enhancing fillers. Rather than adding volume, SkinVive focuses on enhancing skin health and hydration. Harnessing the power of hyaluronic acid, a sophisticated molecule with a capacity to attract and retain moisture, this injectable treatment creates a luminous radiance in the skin. The increased moisture levels contribute to a smoother and softer appearance on the cheeks.

This product can provide lasting results for up to 6 months with optimal treatment.  Also, in a clinical study, patients treated with SkinVive reported higher satisfaction with how glowing, hydrated, refreshed, and healthy their skin looked.

Frequently Asked Questions

For injectables, clients can see results within a few days, but the full results can be seen a few weeks later after the injectables have settled and any bruising has subsided.

Yes, you can combine Botox with fillers. Botox prevents wrinkles from forming, while fillers can help smooth the wrinkles you have and restore facial volume. We've found that Botox and fillers together can further improve anti-aging results.

For most clients, Botox/Dysport and fillers do not hurt. Depending on your preferences, you may opt to use a topical anesthetic to minimize any discomfort. At Valley Dermatology, we want our clients to feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible during all of their cosmetic treatments.
