Cosmetic Injections

Atlanta Complete Care now offers Xeomin, a neuromodulator, and Belotero, a hyaluronic acid, to improve the signs of aging.  Facial soft tissue fillers and injectables are a nonsurgical way to soften the appearance of wrinkles.

Neuromodulators such at Botox and Xeomin have been used for years to treat multiple medical conditions, but is most popular today for the cosmetic benefits. Neuromodulators smooth wrinkles by preventing the movement of targeted muscles.

Hyaluronic acid, our skin’s natural moisturizer, is a common ingredient of anti-aging creams and serums. Hyaluronic acid (or HA) is injected under the skin to restore volume and sculpt facial features.

XEOMIN®

Xeomin is an FDA approved prescription medication injected into muscles to smooth wrinkles. The medication works by temporarily stopping muscle movement.

What to should I expect during my consultation?

Consultations on average last 30 minutes. During this time, you will have an in-depth conversation with the medical provider to discuss treatment options and the goals of treatment. Your skin will be cleansed to remove makeup and oil from the injection site. The procedure is 15 minutes. There is very little pain with this procedure, but an ice pack may be used to temporarily numb the skin.

What to should I expect after my procedure?

There is little to no down time after the procedure. After your injections are completed, do not massage the treated areas as this will result in undesirable outcomes.You may gently apply a cold pack to minimize bruising or swelling. Do not lie down or apply pressure to your face for the 4 hours immediately following the injections. We ask that you avoid any vigorous activity for 24 hours after the injections. You will notice results in 7-10 days, and the treatments last 3-4 months on average.

What are the risks of this procedure?

In clinical trials of Xeomin, headache was the most common side effect.

If this happens, do not drive a car, operate machinery, or do other dangerous activities. Symptoms of an allergic reaction to Xeomin may include: itching, rash, redness, swelling, wheezing, asthma symptoms, or dizziness or feeling faint.  Notify your doctor if you have any side effect that bothers you or that does not subside.

BELOTERO®

Belotero is an FDA approved injectable, soft tissue filler that is used to smooth lines and wrinkles on your face and restore volume. Upon injection, it quickly and evenly integrates into your skin.

What should I expect during my consultation?

Consultations on average take 45 minutes. During this time, you will have an in-depth conversation with the medical provider to discuss treatment options and the goals of treatment. Your skin will be cleansed to remove makeup and oil from the injection site. The procedure takes 20-30 minutes. A prescribed topical anesthetic or ice pack may be applied to temporarily numb the skin prior to the procedure.

What should I expect after my procedure?

There is minimal down time after the injections and results are noticed immediately. An ice pack will be applied to minimize bruising and swelling after the procedure. You will continue to massage the injected region intermittently after the procedure to help integrate the fillers into the skin. The duration of fillers varies by individual products. Belotero provides temporary results which last on average 4-6 months. Asymmetry may occur after this procedure, and additional treatments may be needed to address this.

What are the risks of this procedure?

Just like any injection, you may experience mild irritation, swelling, itching, redness, bruising, or tenderness at the injection site. These side effects typically resolve on their own. The most common adverse events seen in clinical studies with Belotero were swelling, bruising, redness, hardening of the skin, pain, altered color, or itching. Other side effects that have occurred in clinical studies of Belotero include headache, swelling of the side of the nose, moderate cold sore, lip numbness, and lip dryness. Side effects were often mild to moderate and often resolved within 7 days. One of the risks with using this product is unintentional injection into a blood vessel. The chances of this happening are very small, but if it does happen, complications can be serious, and may be permanent.
