Cosmetic Injectables | Washington, D.C., & Arlington
Enhance Your Face
Cosmetic injectable treatments are a great way to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and increase the fullness of your face for a younger, fresher look.
What Are Cosmetic Injectables?
Cosmetic injectables are non-surgical treatments that can help rejuvenate your appearance, smooth wrinkles, and restore youthful volume to your face.
Two main types of injectables—neurotoxins and fillers—offer distinct ways to address your facial cosmetic concerns.
Dr. Cabin uses neurotoxins to block the signals from nerves to the muscles to prevent contraction that causes deep wrinkles. To add volume to your face, Dr. Cabin offers a number of filler treatments for your lips, cheeks, chin, jaw, and the area around your eyes.
These injectables work by relaxing the muscles that cause your wrinkles. They’re commonly used to soften dynamic wrinkles, which are lines that appear when you make facial expressions.
Neurotoxins temporarily block the nerve signals in the treated area, reducing muscle contractions and preventing wrinkles from forming. These injections are often used for forehead lines, crow's feet, and frown lines between the eyebrows.
Dermal fillers—such as Juvederm, Restylane, and Sculptra—are designed to restore volume and fullness to your face.
As we age, our skin loses collagen and fat, leading to sagging and wrinkles. Dr. Cabin injects fillers into specific areas to plump up your skin, smooth out wrinkles and fine lines, and enhance facial contours.
Dr. Cabin can use fillers on your cheeks, lips, and around your mouth to create a more youthful and refreshed appearance.
How Injectables Work
These cosmetic injectables offer you a way to get a more youthful and rejuvenated look without the need for surgery.
Dr. Cabin administers both types of cosmetic injectables through quick, minimally invasive procedures that typically involve little to no downtime. His industry expertise and attentive care ensure that your treatment will be tailored to your unique needs.
You’ll see your results relatively quickly, and they’ll often last for several months to over a year, depending on the specific product and treatment area.
Facial Volumization & Contouring
Depending on your cosmetic needs, Dr. Cabin can use neurotoxins to better define the contours and overall shape of your face by blocking the signals from nerves in your facial muscles so that they don’t contract and cause deep wrinkles.
Dr. Cabin can also use fillers to add volume to the different areas of your face, including your lips, cheeks, chin, jaw, and eyes.
If necessary, Dr. Cabin can also combine different injectable procedures based on your cosmetic needs and goals. Below are some of the neurotoxin and fillers treatments Dr. Cabin offers to help you refresh your facial appearance and get the natural-looking results you want.
Wrinkle Reduction & Prevention
Cometic injectables directly reduce dynamic wrinkles that occur with facial expression and movement. But injectables are also preventative — by softening muscle movement and thus preventing reinforcement, the “etched-in” wrinkles that occur with aging can be reversed and prevented.
Dr. Cabin employs a micro-aliquot approach to cosmetic injectables, using smaller amounts across more targeted areas. This technique leads to the most natural reduction of dynamic wrinkles and effective, long-term prevention of etched-in lines.
Injectables can narrow the lower face, creating a more aesthetic “heart-shaped” or “V-shaped” relationship to the cheek.
By safely shrinking the masseter muscles—large muscles that add bulk to the jaw—the lower face can be dramatically narrowed. Dr. Cabin is an expert in this procedure, targeting injectables safely and comfortably deep within this muscle.Learn More
Neurotoxins for Masseters
Many patients with a disproportionately wide lower jaw also have enlarged masseter muscles from teeth grinding or clenching, usually while sleeping.
Using neurotoxin injectables for facial slimming can also treat your masseter issues by reducing the pain associated with these unconscious behaviors, frequently referred to as TMJ disorder.Learn More
If you're seeking to enhance the appearance of your nose without undergoing surgery, non-surgical rhinoplasty might be the solution you're looking for.
During this procedure, Dr. Cabin skillfully applies dermal fillers to reshape and contour your nose, addressing concerns such as:
- Asymmetrical nose bridge: Non-surgical rhinoplasty can effectively enhance your nose bridge by adding volume and creating a smoother, more balanced profile.
- Drooping tip: If you're unhappy with the shape or projection of your nose tip, Dr. Cabin can use fillers to reshape and refine the nasal tip, helping you get the defined profile you desire.
- Bumps and other minor imperfections: Non-surgical rhinoplasty can also smooth out minor imperfections, such as bumps, irregularities, or depressions on your nose.
If you're concerned about misshapen or under-volumized lips affecting your facial appearance, lip augmentation might be the solution for you.
By strategically applying filler, Dr. Cabin can enhance your lips in a subtle and natural way, aiming to get you a balanced look that complements your overall facial features. Dr. Cabin utilizes both cannula and needle techniques to precisely reshape and add volume to the lips, focusing on a natural enhancement that avoids any artificial or overdone results.
Under Eye Filler
Aging often leads to volume loss, especially under your eyes, resulting in a hollow appearance known as the "tear-trough deformity."
Dr. Cabin specializes in under-eye filler treatments, using the cannula technique to revitalize this area of your face. His approach involves carefully layering filler using micro-droplets to ensure a smooth transition between your cheek and eyelid.
This non-surgical technique minimizes discomfort, swelling, and bruising while restoring a more youthful look to your eyes.
If you’ve tried other cosmetic procedures and are still concerned that you look older than you are—or even feel—you should know that hollow temples are an often overlooked cause for your aged appearance.
You should also know that Dr. Cabin offers temple augmentation using robust fillers like Voluma® or Sculptra®, injecting them beneath your muscle for a contoured effect.
By addressing temple hollowness, you can get a more youthful upper face and even create the illusion of wider-set eyes.
Enhancing the shape of your cheeks can make a significant impact on your overall facial balance. Dr. Cabin divides cheek filler into two areas:
- Medial cheek (near the nose)
- Lateral cheek (near the ear)
Depending on your desired outcome, fillers can be placed in either or both locations. Lateral cheek filler can define cheekbones and provide an anti-aging lift, while medial cheek filler is often requested by patients who desire a more rounded midface.
Volume loss along the jawline can affect your facial profile, and Dr. Cabin can address this with precision using a cannula technique.
By layering and molding filler, he restores volume and contours the jaw to your specifications so that you get the younger, natural-looking appearance you desire.
Liquid Chin Augmentation
If you’re concerned about an under-projected chin, liquid chin augmentation offers a non-surgical alternative to implants.
Dr. Cabin can enhance your chin's projection using carefully placed, robust filler, helping to achieve a more balanced facial appearance.
Following your cosmetic injectable procedure, you can anticipate a swift and straightforward recovery process.
While minor swelling, redness, or bruising may occur at the injection sites, these effects usually subside within a few days. Dr. Cabin and his team will provide you with aftercare instructions to ensure your comfort and facilitate a smooth healing experience.
You’ll likely start noticing improvements shortly after the procedure. However, it's important to remember that the full effects may take a few days to settle in as any initial swelling resolves.
The beauty of cosmetic injectables lies in their ability to offer immediate enhancement with minimal downtime. Depending on the type of injectable used and your body's natural metabolism, the results can last anywhere from several months to over a year.
Dr. Cabin's expertise lies in delivering results that are both subtle and impactful, enhancing your natural features while maintaining a genuine look. His personalized approach ensures that your desired outcomes are achieved while avoiding any signs of an "overdone" appearance.
