Aging is inevitable, often causing unwanted signs including lines, wrinkles, sagging skin and a hollow appearance. Vein and Body Specialists located in Bellevue and serving Sandusky, Fremont, and Norwalk, Ohio, offers a selection of injectables to help reverse the signs of aging and to restore your youthful appearance.
What are Injectables?
Injectables are non-surgical options for treating signs of aging, including wrinkles, folds and extra submental fat under the chin. They consist of substances that are injected into your face to smooth out lines and wrinkles, as well as to increase volume in areas such as your cheeks. They can be used as a standalone procedure or combined with other treatments for total rejuvenation.
What Injectables are Available at Vein and Body Specialists?
Botox® is one of the most popular injectable fillers available to treat dynamic wrinkles, such as those deep lines that form between your brows, forehead and around your eyes. Also referred to as botulinum toxin type A, Botox® is an FDA-approved neurotoxin that targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet which is the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. Botox® temporarily paralyzes the muscles that cause those contractions, allowing your skin to relax and smooth out.

Juvederm® is a dermal filler with a gel-like consistency that is used to improve the signs of aging by filling in deep folds and creases. Made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in the body, Juvederm® helps to rehydrate your skin. As you age, your body’s level of hyaluronic acid depletes causing wrinkles and a loss of facial volume. Juvederm® replenishes your body’s hyaluronic acid to provide moisture and hydration to your skin, thus increasing volume and elasticity. We offer two types of Juvederm® at Vein and Body Specialists.
Kybella® is the only FDA-approved non-surgical injectable treatment to reduce submental fat under the chin, more commonly referred to as a double chin. Kybella® contains deoxycholic acid, a natural substance found in the body that assists in the breakdown and absorption of fat cells. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella® permanently destroys the fat cells by breaking them up so the body can absorb them and naturally dispose of them. Once the fat cells are destroyed you are left with a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin, creating a slim and contoured profile.
What are the Benefits of Injectables?
Injectables are a great option for patients who are unhappy with the appearance of their skin due to aging but do not want to have surgery. Injectables can reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles by smoothing and plumping up your skin to give you a younger, more radiant appearance. Injectables are non-surgical, pain-free options with absolutely no downtime.

Injectable treatments can be used to address several signs of aging, including:
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead lines
- Marionette lines
- Nasolabial folds
- Hollow cheeks
- Frown lines
- Fine lines and wrinkles
