As you grow older your skin becomes less elastic due to the loss of collagen and reduced vascularization of tissues. Wrinkles occur when certain muscles become more dominant and the skin does not have the ability to be as elastic in response to these muscle contractions.
Because the muscles of the face are relatively small, it is necessary to introduce the medicine by injection so that the exact placement and effect is achieved. By introducing the medicine into the exact muscle group responsible for the wrinkling, various aesthetic enhancements can be obtained in addition to elimination of wrinkles.
Injectables offered at QLMD Skincare in Tomball help to effectively treat signs of aging including fine lines and wrinkles. We also have injectable treatments to help with weight loss, boost your energy, revitalize your complexion, and help regrow hair.
Botox and Xeomin are effective injectable that contain botulinum toxin to relax the muscles and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles that they cause. They are both FDA- approved for use in areas such as the forehead, between the eyebrows and around the eyes. Patients typically notice some improvement of their wrinkles within a few days with full results becoming evident by 7-14 days.
Injectable Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers help add hydration and volume to the aging face and help reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles beyond the effect of Botox and Xeomin. Fillers can add volume to the cheeks and lips enhancing the effects of wrinkle reducing agents or just be used alone to help restore a more youthful appearance.
Liquid Facelift/ PRP Facial
The liquid facelift is one of the newest innovations in injectables. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy uses your own blood to address a number of skin concerns. A sample of your blood is drawn and processed and used to help stimulate your skin to create more collagen helping to further reduce fine lines and wrinkles and tighten your skin.
Injectables for Weight Loss and Energy
Semaglutide injections are one of the latest treatments for weight loss. This drug was initially developed for treatment of diabetes, but studies showed that a significant number of patients were losing weight while using it. It was then reformulated for treatment of weight loss. Semaglutide is typically injected under the skin and works by lowering the appetite, slowing digestion, and increasing insulin levels driving weight loss. In clinical trials, come patients lost 12 percent of their weight by 28 weeks.
Lipo Slim injections help your liver remove fat, effectively releasing fat throughout your body. You may receive these injections up to two times per week to accelerate your metabolic processes and facilitate weight loss.
