Injectables Q & A
What are injectables?
Injectables are aesthetic treatments administered via injections. There are two primary types of injectables: those that work to reduce muscle movement in the treatment area and those that serve to enhance volume in the treatment area.
A liquid facelift is a technique that uses both types of injectables to create a more youthful and well-rested appearance. In the hands of a skilled and experienced practitioner like Scott B. Callahan, PA-C, injectables can offer impressive results without the risks associated with plastic surgery.
What is Botox?
Botox is the world’s leading nonsurgical cosmetic treatment. It works by using a carefully controlled and safe formulation of a neurotoxin called Clostridium botulinum to temporarily impede the movement of targeted facial muscles.
This treatment is FDA-approved to temporarily reduce the appearance of crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines. Off-label, Botox can help smooth nasolabial folds, also known as smile lines.
It takes several injections for each treatment area, but the process is not painful and there’s no need for any type of anesthesia. You can come in for treatment over your lunch break then return to work with no need for recovery time.
Your results develop over the next few days, and last several months. Once you notice your lines and wrinkles deepening you can decide if you’d like to pursue additional treatments.
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are soft, gel-like substances that act to plump your skin and smooth away lines, wrinkles, and folds. Dolce Vida Med Spa offers a wide range of dermal fillers to suit many different treatment goals.
Some of the areas where dermal fillers can yield improvements include:
- Nasolabial folds, or smile lines
- Marionette lines, which run from the sides of your mouth to your chin
- Lost volume in the middle portion of the face
- Depressed acne scarring
- Sunken areas beneath the lower eyelids
- Thin or poorly defined lips
Some of the dermal fillers available at Dolce Vida Med Spa include BellafillⓇ, Allofill™ RadiesseⓇ, and the JuvedermⓇ family of products.

One of our most popular injectables is Botox injections, as it has earned a name for itself. Botox can help to treat smile lines, also known as nasolabial folds.
Allofill is made from naturally occurring allograft fat tissue and can be used to fill soft-tissue defects as a noninvasive alternative to surgical fat grafting with your own tissue.
