Aesthetic Services Q & A

What are aesthetic treatments?

Aesthetic treatments are solutions — often non-surgical — that can enhance your appearance. Services can reverse the signs of aging, even out blotchy skin, and minimize the appearance of old scars, including acne scars. Some types of aesthetic treatments can even get rid of excess body fat.

What are injectables?

Injectables include a variety of products that help enhance your appearance and reverse the signs of aging. Between dermal fillers and botulinum injections, you have options available, depending on your desired outcome. Read more about how each injectable works below.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers, often comprised of hyaluronic acid, are designed to plump your skin in areas where you’ve lost volume, or didn’t have much volume in the first place. They can help contour your cheeks and lips, and even smooth out deep wrinkles, grooves, and even scars.

Some dermal fillers go a step further and stimulate collagen production. So while the gel-like hyaluronic acid component instantly plumps your skin, it simultaneously firms and smooths out your skin from the deeper layers.

Botulinum Injections

Botulinum injections, such as BOTOX®, also provide anti-aging benefits, but they work in a different manner. These highly effective injectables interact with cell signaling that causes muscle contractions, forcing facial muscles to relax. This helps your skin smooth out and can take years off your face right away.

To further tone and sculpt areas beyond your face, you might want to consider mesotherapy.

How does mesotherapy work?

Mesotherapy is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment designed for targeting areas of concern all over your body. Treatments involve injecting FDA-approved medications, vitamins, and minerals into several precise locations throughout a treatment area over a period of weeks.

The mesotherapy solution enters your mesoderm, which is the layer of fat and tissue right underneath your skin. Over time, mesotherapy injections can:

  • Minimize the appearance of cellulite
  • Get rid of excess fat
  • Rejuvenate your skin

Your mesotherapy treatment package is tailored to your desired outcome and any aesthetic issues you want to resolve.

Which aesthetic treatments do I need?

The aesthetic treatment you need depends on what you’re trying to achieve. Generally, the best way to know which types of aesthetic treatments you need is to schedule a consultation at Munoz Urgent Care to discuss your aesthetic desires.

For instance, if you want to reduce the appearance of subcutaneous fat — the double chin — you’d get several injections in your jawline. Mesotherapy is also a safe and effective alternative to a facelift since a single treatment can help firm and tighten your skin without needing surgery.
