What are cosmetic injections?

Cosmetic injections are nonsurgical procedures that involve administering substances beneath the skin to enhance your appearance. These injections can smooth wrinkles, plump up the skin, and dissolve unwanted fat. They require little to no downtime and provide fast results. 

Most cosmetic injections take only a few minutes to perform, making them a popular choice for individuals seeking a refreshed and youthful look without the need for surgery. Dr. Balder and his expert team offer multiple cosmetic injections at Mississippi Institute of Weight Loss Surgery to help you reach your aesthetic goals.

How do the different types of cosmetic injections work?

Mississippi Institute of Weight Loss Surgery offers several types of cosmetic injections, including:

Botox® and neuromodulators

Neuromodulators like Botox contain a purified form of botulinum toxin, a neurotoxin that temporarily blocks nerve signals in the muscles where it is injected. When injected into a specific muscle, the muscle temporarily stops contracting. This lack of movement relaxes the skin, causing wrinkles around the forehead, eyes, and nose to soften.

Dermal fillers

Fillers address wrinkles by injecting gel-like substances beneath the skin, filling in deep lines and creases. Dermal fillers can also contour the skin, adding definition to the cheeks, lips, and jawline.


Kybella, or deoxycholic acid, is an injectable fat dissolver that targets submental fullness beneath the chin. Once the fat cells leave your body, they can’t return. Kybella disrupts and destroys fat cell membranes, allowing the body to naturally eliminate the treated fat cells. The result is a reduced double chin and a more defined jawline.

How do I prepare for cosmetic injections?

Cosmetic injections don’t require much preparation, but taking a few simple steps can help ensure a smooth appointment and recovery. Before your appointment, make sure to:

  • Avoid blood-thinning medications and supplements
  • Avoid alcohol 48 hours before your treatment
  • Consider taking Aarnica tablets 48 hrous before treatment
  • Hydrate 
  • Plan for temporary swelling, bruising, and redness
  • Communicate your goals

After discussing your needs and desires, Dr. Balder and his aesthetic team can develop a personalized treatment plan that aligns with your expectations and ensures optimal results.
