Injectables have become an indispensable tool for a wide array of aesthetic improvements, and Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz’s expertise includes an expansive range of FDA-approved product options. From wrinkle-relaxing toxins and injectable fillers to targeted treatments for specific concerns and full-face (and neck) rejuvenation, these treatments can be performed on their own or in conjunction with surgical procedures to yield optimal outcomes with little to no downtime.
Injectable treatments can improve a variety of concerns including:
Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz uses state-of-the-art VECTRA 3D Facial Analysis when meeting with patients interested in non-surgical facial-contour enhancement or comprehensive rejuvenation with injectables. This high-tech imaging system helps the patient communicate their main concerns and goals while allowing Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz to “map” the patient’s face, create a customized injectable-based 3D Facial Balancing plan and illustrate the potential results with detailed 3D images.
Wrinkle-relaxing neuromodulators: These line-smoothing injections help minimize the muscle contractions that cause expression-related wrinkles around the eyes, between the brows and on the forehead. Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz offers Botox® and Dysport®, and these treatments can be used to improve the visibility of vertical bands on the neck as well.
Hyaluronic acid fillers: There are several hyaluronic acid injectable fillers that can be used to improve an extensive range of concerns. Including numerous Juvéderm® and Restylane® products designed for use in specific areas such as the lips and mid-face, as well as Revanesse® Versa™ and Belotero Balance®, the primary difference between these different fillers is the size of the hyaluronic acid particles. (The larger the particles, the more “lift” they can provide.) With the ability to instantly improve fine lines, wrinkles, lip appearance, loss of volume and much more, Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz will recommend the ideal filler or combination of fillers that can help restore a more youthful appearance and achieve a patient’s desired results.
Radiesse®: This longer-lasting injectable filler instantly replenishes volume and stimulates the skin’s natural collagen production for continued improvement over time. Effective for replenishing mid-face volume, improving under-eye hollows and dark circles, enhancing definition of the chin and jawline, and rejuvenating the appearance of aging hands, Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz has the expertise necessary for beautiful, natural-looking Radiesse® results that last for up to 18 months.
Sculptra®: Formulated to gradually restore volume to the mid-face and improve the appearance of nasolabial folds over a series of treatments, Sculptra® stimulates collagen production and provides results that can last for up to three years.
Kybella®: This one-of-a-kind injectable permanently destroys fat cells to reduce the look of a double chin. Formulated to address this stubborn fat (which often persists despite diet, exercise and other weight-loss measures), a series of treatments can provide improvement that could once only be achieved with surgical liposuction.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP): This “all-natural” injectable is created by isolating the most beneficial components of a patient’s own blood, such as platelets and growth factors. PRP can be delivered via microneedling to improve the skin’s surface, or injected into the scalp to stimulate hair growth.
5-FU and Kenalog injections: Some patients are prone to keloid or hypertrophic scars, which are raised or discolored as compared to surrounding skin. More common in those with darker skin tones and in high-movement areas, these scars are caused by an over-production of collagen during the healing process. Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz offers two treatments that help flatten, soften and improve their overall appearance. Injections of 5-FU (5-fluorouracil), Kenalog (a synthetic steroid) or a combination of both are safe and effective ways to refine problematic scars. The injectables used and the number of treatments necessary can depend on a variety of factors, but Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz will recommend the ideal approach for achieving the best possible improvement.
