Injectables Q&A

What are injectables?

Injectables are cosmetic treatments that eliminate imperfections, such as frown lines, wrinkles, and lax skin. Injectables available at PCTRAN Plastic Surgery include fillers, Botox®, and many others. They may consist of:

  • Hyaluronic acid (Restylane®, Juvederm®, etc)
  • Botulinum toxin type A (Botox®, Dysport®, Xeomin®, Jeaveau®, etc.®)
  • Poly-l-lactic acid (Sculptra®)
  • Calcium hydroxylapatite (Radiesse®)
  • Permanent soft tissue fillers (Bellafill®)
  • Fat grafting with fat from other areas of your body

These injections contain substances that are safe, FDA-approved, and highly effective for diminishing signs of aging and facial or body abnormalities.

What benefits do injectables offer?

Injectables at PCTRAN Plastic Surgery offer numerous benefits, including:

  • Improved facial or body contours
  • Fewer frown lines and wrinkles
  • Tighter, smoother, lifted skin
  • Cheek refinement
  • Diminished crow’s feet
  • Facial volume rejuvenation and restoration 
  • Plumper lips
  • Reduced vertical lip lines
  • Refreshed appearance 
  • Natural beauty
  • Improved facial symmetry

Fillers can also contribute to a nonsurgical nose job and increase lip volume using lip fillers. Botox helps eliminate migraines, excessive sweating, eye twitching, and lazy eye. 

Both men and women can take advantage of the anti-aging effects of injectables. The process of receiving the injections is stress-free without hassle, surgery, pain, or downtime. Dr. Tran customizes the results to your needs.

Which injectables are best for me?

Dr. Tran completes a physical exam, discusses your medical history, and reviews your cosmetic goals to determine which injectables you’re a candidate for. You may need more than one type of injectable to achieve the desired outcome.

What happens when receiving injectables?

If you’re a candidate for fat transfer injectables, Dr. Tran first uses liposuction to extract fat cells from other areas of your body.

He injects fat cells, Botox, or fillers beneath the skin on your face or body to alter your appearance and eliminate imperfections. The treatment is simple and fast without downtime.

Common side effects of injectables include redness and swelling at the injection site. Most injectables don’t provide permanent results, though some last much longer than others. You may need repeat injections every few months or years, depending on the type of injectable you’ve received.
