All About Injectables

The term injectable can be used to describe a wide range of treatments. Some of the most popular are neuromodular treatments like Botox or dermal fillers to restore or enhance volume in the face. One of the latest injectable options is Kybella, which uses an acid that the body already naturally creates to permanently remove unwanted fat under the chin and along the jawline. This option can be used to get rid of double chins for good. An injectable regimen can help you look younger, slimmer, and improve self-confidence. However, the experience and skill of the provider performing the service is just as important as choosing the right treatment to begin with.

At RefinedMD, we specialize in offering a suite of aesthetic treatments to help you look and feel your best. Our team is comprised of experts in their field. When you’re thinking about cosmetic treatments to rejuvenate your skin, erase lines and wrinkles, or create and restore volume in the face, you deserve to have only the best taking care of you.


Botox is one of the most well-known and popular treatments for good reason. It’s been available for several years and is shown to be safe and effective for all skin types. Botox is a neuromodular injection that temporarily “freezes” targeted muscles to keep you from creating unwanted lines and wrinkles. The most popular site for Botox is around the eyes and between the brows. Botox lasts for about 3 – 6 months on average, and maintenance sessions can help you keep that smooth, younger-looking appearance you’ll quickly fall in love with.


There are many types of dermal fillers from trusted manufacturers including Juvederm and Restylane. Different dermal fillers are designed to achieve different results and are recommended for various parts of the face. Most dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, which is an acid that already exists naturally in your body. Most dermal fillers last for a few months, but there is some variance depending on the dermal fillers you choose. Dermal fillers can be placed in the lips for a larger, more youthful pout. Fillers in the cheeks can help restore lost volume due to aging or weight loss, or dermal fillers below the eyes can help with “bags” as well as wrinkles and dark circles.


Kybella is a revolutionary treatment that banishes that dreaded double chin for good. You don’t need to carry excess weight to struggle with a double chin. Sometimes very slender people have this issue, and no amount of diet, exercise, or even facial exercises will get rid of it. Bone structure, genetics, and aging can all play a role in a double chin appearing or getting worse. Kybella is a series of deoxycholic acid injections that destroy targeted fat cells for good. This acid also already occurs naturally in the body, but in a concentrated dose it does a fantastic job of getting rid of unwanted fat cells. These fat cells are then absorbed and expelled by the body naturally in the weeks following your Kybella injections. You should only ever trust a skilled provider with Kybella, because once that fat is gone you can’t get it back. Great, natural-looking results require an expert and that’s exactly what you deserve.

What Other Treatments Does RefinedMD Offer?

Many clients combine Botox, dermal fillers, or Kybella with microdermabrasion to remove dead skin cells and enjoy a more youthful, glowing complexion. Microdermabrasion is safe and there’s no downtime, so you can immediately get back to your daily life with smoother, healthier looking skin. You might also want to add microneedling to your injectable treatment, which improves skin texture and laxity from the inside out. Microneedling uses thousands of tiny needles that create neuromodular channels in the skin, encouraging collagen growth. This minimally invasive treatment requires virtually no downtime, so you can get right back to your day after the treatment.

A superficial chemical peel is a great choice to complement Botox, dermal fillers, or Kybella. The gentlest of chemical peels uses a customized solution that removes the top layer of skin. Acne scarring, pigmentation, lines, wrinkles, and other common skin issues can all be reduced or eliminated with a superficial chemical peel. You’ll notice some light peeling a couple of days after treatment and it’s very important to avoid direct sun exposure after any chemical peel. However, most clients find that they require very little downtime and a superficial chemical peel does not interfere with their daily lives.

Light therapy using broadband light (BBL) or intense pulsed light (IPL) also complements Botox, dermal fillers, and Kybella. This technology uses quick light pulses to break up damaged skin while also encouraging collagen production. You can minimize pigmentation, lines and wrinkles, sun damage, and much more with these treatments which require almost no downtime. Some minor redness or swelling may be noticeable immediately after your treatment, but it subsides by itself in a few hours.
