Operating rooms, anesthesia, and surgical knives can be daunting. Many patients want to restore their facial appearance but do not want to undergo surgical procedures such as facelift or eyelid surgery. As more technologies and treatments become available, new options for targeting facial aging have come to light that are less invasive and require minimal downtime. Injectables are among the most requested non-surgical treatments. Dr. Taylor can effectively provide a “non-surgical facelift” by combining prescription-only injectable skin treatments. Patients can address unwanted changes caused by aging, heredity, and sun exposure to create a rejuvenated appearance.Schedule Your Consultation Today
Achieved With Injectables
A YOUTHFUL APPEARANCE
Injectables are designed to target various areas of the face to help a patient achieve a more youthful appearance. There are several injectables patients can choose from based on their anatomy and desired outcome. Each type of injectable can be performed alone or combined with others to create an overall refreshed look.
When there are areas of the face that look aged and tired, it can affect a person’s overall self-image. After undergoing a non-surgical facelift with one or a combination of our injectable treatments, the patient will look younger and more rejuvenated. Patients will feel confident in their appearance and no longer be afraid to show off their face in public or in photos.
PERSONALLY TAILORED RESULTS
Dr. Taylor offers several different treatments to provide an individualized treatment plan. Patients can expect to achieve results that beautifully match their unique facial anatomy and goals.

KYBELLA® is a customizable deoxycholic acid injection treatment designed for fat reduction in the submental area (under the chin). KYBELLA® is injected into the subcutaneous submental fat and permanently destroys the fat cells in the treatment area. The fat is then naturally eliminated by the body, resulting in a sculpted jawline and pleasing profile. Most patients require multiple KYBELLA® sessions (two to six) to improve the appearance of submental fat, and these treatments should be performed at least four weeks apart.Read More
Who is the best candidate for injectables?
A patient who wants to target signs of aging without undergoing an invasive procedure such as facelift surgery may be an ideal candidate for injectable treatment. It is important that patients are physically healthy, don’t smoke, and have realistic expectations.
What are the risks and complications associated with injectables?
Although rare, some risks and complications associated with injectables include:
- Bleeding from the injection site
- Skin redness
Are the results from injectables permanent?
The results from injectables are long lasting; however, they are not permanent. Patients who undergo follow-up treatments and practice a healthy skin care regimen are more likely to experience a longer-lasting outcome.
Can injectables be combined with other plastic surgery procedures?
Many patients decide to undergo surgical procedures, such as facelift surgery, neck lift surgery, and fat transfer surgery, along with their injectable treatments.
How long do injectable treatments take?
Injectables are quick, minimally painful procedures that are performed in-office within one hour. Patients can return to work and regular activities immediately following their injections. It is important that patients avoid sun exposure and touching the treatment area for the first few weeks for the best results.
