Injectables Q&A

What are cosmetic injectables?

Cosmetic injectables include a range of neurotoxins, dermal fillers, and other treatments. There are many different formulations, each of which serves a specific anti-aging purpose. 

The team at Freya’s Lair Medical Spa helps you choose the best injectable for your needs. They have the skills and training needed to make the most of these treatments. 

How do neurotoxins work?

Neurotoxins introduce minute volumes of neurotoxins into certain muscles in your face. BotoxⓇ is the most well-known neurotoxin and is the world’s leading non-surgical solution for temporarily reducing the appearance of:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Forehead lines
  • Frown lines

JeuveauⓇ is another neurotoxin that’s primary use is to treat frown lines. Both Botox and Jeuveau have off-label uses to address other facial wrinkles. 

You can expect your effects to last around 3-4 months. At that point, you begin to notice your lines and wrinkles slowly returning, and can decide if you’d like to pursue another round of injections. 

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectable treatments that place a gel-like substance into areas of your face where you desire additional volume. Many fillers work in two ways: they create an immediate plumping effect upon injection, and they also stimulate your body to produce new collagen. 


The Juvéderm family of fillers offers numerous formulations for various areas of your face. 

  • VolumaⓇ XC adds volume to your cheeks
  • VolbellaⓇ XC increases the volume of your lips and smooths vertical lip lines
  • VollureⓇ XC is great for parentheses lines around your mouth
  • Ultra XC is for parentheses lines and nasolabial folds


This versatile filler adds volume to smile lines, chin lines, and low face remodeling. Injections can also add volume to your mid-face to list and tighten jowls and sagging neck skin. Results can last for a year or longer. 

RevanesseⓇ Versa™

This filler contains spherical particles of hyaluronic acid and creates a soft and beautiful finish. It also reduces swelling and is used in various areas of your face. 


Bellafill not only boosts volume in the injection area, but it also stimulates your body to produce new collagen to deliver results that last as long as five years. It’s a great option for depressed acne scarring and smile lines. 

What is the injectable KybellaⓇ?

Kybella is an injectable treatment that destroys fat in the area beneath your chin, also called the submental area. It uses a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a substance your body creates naturally to break down and absorb fat in the foods you eat. The synthetic version destroys fat cells beneath your chin when administered in a series of shallow injections.
