It’s no secret that injectables are a staple of the medical aesthetics toolbelt. If our injectors are Batman, injectables are our Batarang. And there’s a good reason for that! There’s virtually no treatment type as flexible, effective, or fast as facial injections.
At Touch MedSpa, we offer a wide variety of injectable services to help deal with unwanted signs of aging in your face and neck. There’s nothing better for tackling noticeable wrinkles and fine lines than a quick filler or Botox injection. And, if you’re like our patients, you’ve probably got questions.
“What are your consultations like? What can I expect from the results? Is swelling normal? Am I a good candidate for facial filler injections in North Myrtle Beach?” There’s a lot to cover!
That’s why we thought it would be fun to go discuss our injectables services this month. So here’s what you should know about the best touch-up treatments in the biz: Botox & Dysport, Sculptra, and facial filler injections in North Myrtle Beach!
Powerful Antiaging: Facial Filler Injections in North Myrtle Beach
Fine lines and wrinkles are a sign of a life well expressed. There’s nothing wrong with that! It means you’re living life with laughter, love, and stories (which we cannot wait to hear). But having fun shouldn’t mean you don’t get to look the way you want.
So, if you want a more refreshed look—whether it’s for an upcoming event, job interview, presentation, or simply a boost in self-confidence—Touch MedSpa can help. That’s where facial filler injections come in!
Rather than creams or supplements that have a difficult time producing transformative results, Touch MedSpa in North Myrtle Beach can place dermal fillers below the skin’s surface to fill, soften, and smooth wrinkles from within and restore a natural, more youthful appearance!
How long these fillers last varies from brand to brand, with some lasting up to 12 months and others providing results for years. Your Touch MedSpa injector will review what you can expect from your fillers in your consultation and again after treatment!
Neurotoxins: Botox & Dysport Injections in North Myrtle Beach
At Touch MedSpa in North Myrtle Beach, we empower our patients to age naturally and gracefully! One of our favorite injectable tools for that mission is wrinkle relaxers, though the technical term is neurotoxins.
We never want anyone who comes to us to leave anything less than thrilled with their appearance, skin, and body. So, it’s not uncommon for patients to come to us looking for a way to treat a loss of skin elasticity and collagen.
After all, a natural decrease in skin elasticity leads to the appearance of moderate to severe parentheses lines (also known as nasolabial folds) and wrinkles around the nose and mouth. Everyone’s favorite 🙃
For those suffering from fine lines, wrinkles, frown lines, and drooping brows, BOTOX® & Dysport are an excellent solution! While most serums and creams only work on the skin’s surface, wrinkle relaxers like Botox & Dysport can smooth these lines and folds by relaxing the muscles that cause these wrinkles on the surface.
Collagen Building: Sculptra Injections in North Myrtle Beach
Facial filler injections in North Myrtle Beach are great for smoothing out natural volume loss or sagging skin, but they’re not the only injectable solution for natural skin aging. In fact, Touch offers a unique injectable treatment that helps to boost collagen production— Sculptra®!
Sculptra regenerates collagen in your skin while also serving as a dermal filler. Since a decrease in collagen is a primary cause of wrinkle formation, this helps keep your skin looking younger for longer. For patients looking to rewind the clock without surgery, Sculptra is an outstanding alternative!
During your initial consultation with Touch MedSpa for Sculptra, we will discuss your aesthetic goals and determine whether Sculptra best meets your needs. This will help you make an informed decision on the treatments you’d like to focus on, all on your own timeline.
Mixing & Matching Injectables for Improved Results
All these cosmetic injectables provide great benefits on their own. Combined, we can deliver personalized results that refresh and/or enhance your appearance.
Address multiple concerns at once
If you’re concerned about the visible signs of aging or want to enhance and define areas of your face and neck, multiple solutions are available. After all, changes to your body as you age are multifaceted. There simply isn’t one treatment to magically make you feel and look younger. In many ways, though, this gives you waaaay more control over your care!
For example, if you come to North Myrtle Beach hoping to treat “11” lines between your brows, an undefined jawline, and neckbands, our injectors will create a customized plan just for you. That way, we can combine several cosmetic injectables to address all your concerns in one swoop!
The quality of the injection results is only as good as your injector. Lucky for you, our injectors have the experience necessary to know the precise product, amount, and placement of cosmetic injectables that will deliver the results you’re after and perfectly complement your features.
Delivering customized results suited to your features is where the skill of your injector shines.
There are a few reasons combining cosmetic injectables produces long-lasting results. A significant reason is that dermal fillers tend to break down more easily around areas where repetitive movement occurs. This includes your eyes, brow, and mouth.
Combining that treatment with Botox, an injectable that reduces muscle movement, helps minimize that degradation and maintain filler integrity long-term.
What is the difference between Botox and Dysport?
Botox and Dysport are very similar in results; the difference is in their application. Based on the size of your treatment area, we may recommend one over the other to help you achieve the results you’re looking for. To give you an idea, Dysport is best suited for larger areas, as it takes about 25 units of Dysport to equal 10 units of Botox.
What is the difference between Botox and Filler?
One of the most common misconceptions about the treatments we offer at Touch MedSpa is the difference between Botox and filler. Both are highly popular and effective and can even be combined! However, Botox and filler are fundamentally different treatments. Botox relaxes wrinkles caused by the muscles that make expressions (laugh lines, frown lines, etc.), whereas dermal fillers actually “fill” wrinkles that might exist even when your face is relaxed!
Will I have to take off work after facial injections?
There is no downtime after receiving either wrinkle relaxer, though you may experience minor swelling or redness at the injection site for a few hours.
How long will my injectable results last?
Depending on the brand of filler, the placement of that filler, and the individual client’s skin, face fillers can last anywhere from 6 months to 2 years!
Can Botox & facial filler injections in North Myrtle Beach look natural?
Absolutely! Touch MedSpa’s ultimate goal is to provide our clients with subtle, natural-looking results rather than causing them to look “overdone.” While this look is gaining in popularity (and there’s nothing wrong with that!), we have found that our clients prefer to simply look well-rested and youthful rather than completely altering their natural features.

What to look for in an injectables provider/injector
Before receiving any aesthetic treatment, be they laser treatments for dark skin or facial filler injections in North Myrtle Beach, you should turn to a qualified provider. Aesthetic treatments should only ever come from the most qualified providers available!
Here are a few factors you should keep in mind when looking for a quality provider of medical aesthetic treatments near you:
Don’t just look at price
One of the biggest mistakes people make in their provider search is only considering pricing. We totally understand why the price tag is such a big selling point for people. We really do. But this is your body we’re talking about! Choosing the cheapest option is rarely a good move.
You need to find a provider that works with you to find the right match for your needs and your budget. Also, look for any possible membership programs that can help reduce your cost of treatment.
Look for a variety of treatment options
There often isn’t one option for treatment, particularly for injectable treatments like Botox & fillers in North Myrtle Beach. Most procedures have low, medium, and high-quality options that claim to achieve similar results.
Injectable treatments are rarely one size fits all, so you need a provider with experience and access to various options. It’s important that your aesthetics provider not only knows the difference but offers a variety of tools for optimum results!
In addition, a provider who offers a wide variety of treatment solutions for different aesthetic needs is likely to be better versed in providing the holistic care you deserve.
As an example, let’s talk about body contouring treatments. If you’re asking, “what is Coolsculpting?” and your provider can’t explain the pros & cons, you likely can’t expect them to provide all facets of the care you want.
Look at background and qualifications
Of all the factors you should consider in your medical spa search, background, training, and qualifications should be highest on your list.
Before scheduling your first appointment, you should always check your aesthetic provider’s qualifications, education, training, and specializations. When it comes to aesthetic treatments, experience and expertise truly make all the difference.
Certain aesthetic lasers, peels, and other treatments have “contraindications,” or aspects of a treatment that would render it ineffective or unsafe for people with specific attributes or conditions. An experienced provider knows how to adequately identify these contraindications, helping them safely and effectively treat your skin.
At Touch MedSpa, our entire team is extensively trained to help identify the best treatments for you. There is no cookie-cutter care, only customized, carefully-constructed treatment plans. That way, your treatments aren’t just safe; they’re effective.
