One does not need to me a member of Infinity Health to get cosmetic injections. Cosmetic treatments are not part of the medical membership with Dr. Hanson. All are invited to have an assessment and treatment. For those who are members of Infinity Health and who may be receiving injections for medical treatment (migraines or depression) those injections are not covered within the membership agreement.
Please contact Dr. Hanson at Infinity Health to set up an assessment of whether cosmetic injections may be of beneifit. Men or Women!
BotulinumtoxinA is one of several toxins create by the botulism bacteria. But toxin A is the one for our use in that when given in small amounts can relax a tightened muscle. That muscle can be an arm or leg (medical use) or a muscle in the face (cosmetic use) that is causing wrinkles. It is also being used to treat certain types of migraine by relaxing some of the head and scalp muscles.
Fillers are typically a natural substance that is injected into or below the skin to add volume to the area. A sunken area is filled and assumes a more normal contour. It is filling from the inside-out in essence.
As of 2017 there is only one injectable fat disolver on the market and it is used to get rid of a double chin. So far.....no indications for tummy injections.
Dr. Hanson is trained and experienced in many office injection procedures from injecting shoulders to veins to faces.
Dr. Hanson also has training in the newer fillers such as Voluma XC, Volbella XC and in Kybella.

The Juvederm Family is a collection of fillers made by Allergan over the years. They have many uses. The principal use is to fill in deep wrinkles and furrows in the face. They also can be used to fill in dep scars including scars from acne. One notable exception is Juvederm Voluma XC which is primarly used to fill the cheek, giving more prominent cheekbones to restore a more youthful contour of the face.

Volbella is a Juvederm product that was specifically developed to enhance the lips. It is used to make the lips fuller and give more contour. It can also be used to reduce or eliminate the little lines that surround the lips. Typically this product will last at least 9 months and typically a year or more. It is a little les thick of a product than some of the other Juvederm fillers.

Kybella is a unique product that is designed to melt away the submental fat pad. That is the pad immediately under the skin below the jaw. It requires more than one treatment but has a very long lasting effect in that it gets rid of that pad. When that is done the skin hopefully is elastic enough to raise up and get rid of the double chin. If the skin is too loose or "turkey neck-ish" then the results will probably not be as good.
For the manufacturer's info please go to Kybella Information for more information.
