Put Your Best Face Forward With Cosmetic Injectables

It’s discouraging to look in the mirror and see signs of aging like crow’s feet, forehead burrows, smile lines, or a double chin. It seems that skin creams and serums are only mildly helpful, yet you aren’t interested in surgery. Consider rejuvenating your face with injectable dermal fillers, like more than one million men and women do each year, or other injectables such as the ever-popular Botox®️ or the remarkable Kybella®️.

At New Image Medical Spa in Fremont, California, our dual board-certified aesthetics expert, Surinder Sandhu, MD, is passionate about helping you achieve your aesthetic goals. We offer a variety of specialized services, such as injectables, to soften your wrinkles, tighten loose skin, restore lost volume, and give you a youthful countenance.

Cosmetic injectables 101

The word “injectables” is a blanket term for a wide variety of medical-grade products designed to effectively reduce the appearance of aging without undergoing cosmetic surgery.

Botox is probably the most widely known of all injectables. Dermal fillers like Juvéderm® are also very popular and have a solid reputation for providing outstanding cosmetic results. New Image Medical Spa also offers an injectable called Kybella® that reduces fat underneath your chin to give your face a more contoured appearance.

Understanding the differences among cosmetic injectables

Each injectable uses specific ingredients to address a unique cosmetic concern. The effects are long lasting, but, in the cases of Botox and dermal fillers, are not permanent, so treatments can be repeated periodically to maintain their benefits.


Botox relaxes the facial muscles that reside just under your skin. They’re the muscles you contract thousands of times a day that create those unwanted lines and wrinkles around your eyes and forehead when you smile, squint, frown, or otherwise express yourself.

Botox helps reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles for four months or longer and may also help prevent deeper creases from forming as you age. 

Dermal fillers  

Dermal fillers, on the other hand, are substances with a gel-like consistency that mimic the padding benefits of subcutaneous fat. When injected under your skin, dermal fillers can lift sagging cheeks, eradicate lines and grooves around your mouth, and even diminish the appearance of some scars.

Results of the dermal fillers we use at New Image Medical Spa can last a year or longer.


As an alternative to invasive liposuction or neck lift surgery, Kybella is used specifically to diminish submental fat, also known as a double chin. The injections are made of deoxycholic acid, which is engineered to disable your cells from storing fat.

Unlike dermal fillers and Botox, which require touch-ups to extend your smoother look, the results that you get from Kybella are permanent as long as you maintain a healthy weight and lifestyle.

Expertise to keep your new look completely natural

Even though the results of most injectables aren’t meant to last forever, a misstep with the amount, location, or technique used to deliver these powerful products into your skin can leave you with an unnatural appearance for several months.

Too much Botox, for instance, can give you an expressionless look, or what some have dubbed “frozen face.” Dermal fillers that don’t flow naturally with the contours of your face can leave you with lumps and bumps rather than youthful volume. 

The quality products and expertise offered by our team at New Image Medical Spa mean you can expect superior results that are natural rather than wooden or oddly puffy.

Combining injectables in the right amounts

We always meet with you to evaluate your skin and understand your goals regarding injectables or any of the many cosmetic services we offer here at New Image Medical Spa. We make treatment recommendations based on your desired objectives and the effects of the injectables you’re considering.
