Cosmetic Injectables

No matter how youthful you feel, your face may tell a different story. Sunlight, natural aging, and lifestyle factors can diminish the collagen layer that supports the skin, showing wrinkles and lines that just don’t seem to ‘feel’ like the real you. However, different cosmetic injectables can reduce the signs of aging.

Cosmetic Injectable Procedures  and Treatments

Reston Virginia Board Certified Cosmetic Laser Surgery and Wellness Center

There is a vast array of cosmetic injectables on the market worldwide. So from bovine collagen to hyaluronic acid, you can smooth away these imperfections that come with age in a matter of minutes.  An ultra-fine needle is used to inject the product directly into the skin in tiny amounts, resulting in minimal discomfort. To optimize your comfort during the short procedure, Dr. Dima Ali anesthetizes the area by applying some numbing cream to the treatment location.

What happens at a Botox Party?

For our Botox parties, we typically offer a variety of different services. Depending on what interests your group, we can alter this to your personal preference and are open to hearing any suggestions you have while booking your WellMedica experience. This event is extremely private and attendees will receive quality time with our Board Certified Cosmetic Laser Surgeon, Dr. Dima Ali. 

What is Excessive Sweating?

The medical term for excessive sweating is hyperhidrosis which usually begins in childhood or early adolescence. It is necessary for the body to sweat in order to cool itself and to prevent overheating. Yet, people who have hyperhidrosis sweat even when the body does not need to be cooled. Although this condition can affect any site of your body, the sites most commonly affected are the palms, soles, and axillae (arm pits). This excessive sweating can hinder one’s everyday life. Hands can sweat so much that shaking hands with others causes great anxiety. Underarms can soak through clothes causing obvious sweat marks. Therefore, many seek out treatment to help alleviate their hyperhidrosis.

What should I do prior to a Restalyne treatment?

Restylane requires no pretesting, but you should take a few precautions before being treated. Avoid using aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications, St. John's Wort, or high doses of Vitamin E supplements prior to treatment because these may increase bruising or bleeding at the injection site. Also, if you have previously suffered from facial cold sores, discuss this with Dr. Dima Ali as she can prescribe medication to minimize a recurrence. 

What causes sagging ears?

One reason for ears to sag more so than others is if you are guilty of wearing heavy earrings. Heavy earrings can stretch out the ear lobes so much that they are far beyond using anti-aging cream to reverse the effect. Luckily, fillers help protect ears from heavy earrings and can actually prevent delicate lobes from ripping with extra cushion. Another reason for sagging ears is of course aging. Like our face and neck, with time, our skin starts to sag.

Pick Your Treatment

Botox Injections

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a simple, non-surgical, treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe botox fine lines and wrinkles. It relaxes facial muscles so you can smile, frown or look surprised without furrows, creases and wrinkles. 

Dysport Injections

Dysport is an injection used to temporarily improve the look of your moderate to severe frown lines without changing the look of your whole face. The untreated facial muscles still work normally. So, this allows you to freely show facial expressions, such as smiling, in untreated areas.

Botox Hyperhidrosis (Botox for Sweating)

When the seat glands don't receive chemical signals, the severe sweating stops. At Wellmedica we do Botox Hyperhidrosis which helps in reducing excessive sweating. Botox hyperhidrosis is also referred as botox for sweating.

Xeomin Injections

Xeomin is made from the bacteria that causes botulism. Botulinum toxin blocks nerve activity in the muscle which causes a temporary reduction in muscle activity.

Bellafill Injectable

Bellafill (formerly known as Artefill) is an injectable wrinkle filler that provides long lasting wrinkle correction. The body absorbs other fillers and requires frequent repeat injections to maintain the results. 


KYBELLA® is the new FDA approved drug, used to improve the appearance of one's double chin. The fat below this chin is called "submental fat" and can leave some feeling self conscious or embarrassed. 

Dermal Fillers

Sunlight, natural aging, and lifestyle factors can diminish the collagen layer that supports the skin showing wrinkles and lines that just don’t seem to ‘feel’ like the real you.

Ear lobe fillers are a very quick procedure usually taking around 5 to 10 minutes. Fillers are virtually painless, but if worried a topical anesthetic can be applied to the area prior to treatment. 


Juvéderm injectable gel is a non surgical, physician-administered treatment. Dr. Ali eases Juvéderm under the skin using a fine needle to augment, or fill, the soft tissue of the dermis—the dense inner layer of skin beneath the epidermis—to add volume and diminish wrinkles and folds
