What are injectables?

Injectables are cosmetic treatments that quickly and effectively address common beauty concerns without surgery or downtime. North Pacific Dermatology is a state-of-the-art dermatology and aesthetics practice that offers Botox and filler injections. 


Botox is one of the most popular injectables. It treats dynamic wrinkles, the lines and creases that develop from repetitive facial expressions. When you smile or squint, your facial muscles fold your skin. 

Loss of collagen as you age reduces your skin’s strength and elasticity, leading to permanent lines and wrinkles from repetitive skin folding.

Botox temporarily relaxes the muscles that cause frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead wrinkles, allowing the skin to relax and naturally smooth itself out. 


Fillers are injectables that add volume under the skin, filling in lines and creases, depressed acne scars, and fallen cheeks. The team at North Pacific Dermatology also uses fillers to plump up thin lips and enhance facial features. 

Volume loss is a major contributor to the visible signs of aging, causing skin to sag and fold. Fillers act as a replacement for this lost volume. 

What happens during treatment with injectables?

The specifics of your injectables at North Pacific Dermatology depend on your skin type and goals. Before making any recommendations, the team conducts a thorough evaluation so they fully understand your concerns and can devise the most effective treatment plan.

They review your injectables treatment plan at your consultation, so you know what to expect during and after your session.

First, they clean your skin with an antiseptic agent while you relax in the treatment chair. They carefully and expertly inject the Botox or filler into the desired area. Botox injections take about 15 minutes, while fillers may take 20-30 minutes.

The experienced dermatologist at North Pacific Dermatology performs all injectables at North Pacific Dermatology. 

How long do injectables last?

The length of your injectables treatment depends on the type. Botox injections last up to three months, while fillers may last six or more months. 

The team at North Pacific Dermatology recommends scheduling your next injectable session as soon as you notice the effects wearing off. Regular treatments help maintain your youthful look and may prevent new lines and wrinkles from forming.
