Injectables: The Key to Anti-Aging

Injectables are Commonplace Now

In today’s society, health and wellness has become an increasingly popular issue. From specialized diets and digital exercise routines to hi-tech laser treatments that help turn back the hands of time on your skin. But one practice has become especially popular in recent years, due to new and improved solutions that are becoming safer and widely embraced by consumers across the globe…injectables.

In the early days of cosmetic treatments, when injectables were first gaining popularity, there was a lot of uncertainty around the safety of the practice, and a lot of doctors were not familiar enough with proper techniques which often made the practice noticeable in clients who received them, and the result was not always a natural or subtle look.

Today, thanks to the widespread popularity of injectables, consumers in virtually every age bracket and in both sexes are eagerly incorporating various forms of injectables into their regimens due to their natural-looking results and abilities to improve overall aesthetics of various areas of the body.

Injectables are used to relax facial wrinkles and folds such as “smile lines”, contour the body such as reducing the appearance of a “double chin” and improve the signs of facial fat loss by creating structure, framework, and volume to the face and lips. There are different types of injectable procedures that improve various areas of concern. Injectables can also be used on other parts of the body, such as the hands, earlobes, buttocks and virtually any other area that needs correcting.

Most Popular Injectables

Botox: an FDA-approved injectable to temporarily make moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines look better in adults.

Kybella: the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells in the treatment area under the chin to improve your profile.

Juvéderm: Hyaluronic acid, or HA, is a natural substance in the body that delivers volume to the skin. Modified HA is the main ingredient behind Juvederm. Getting treated with Juvederm helps add volume to different areas of the face without surgery while also temporarily restoring the volume loss beneath the surface.

Restylane: Restylane smooths away facial wrinkles and folds, provides subtle lip enhancement, smooths the lines around the mouth, adds lift and volume to the cheeks, and helps reverse the signs of volume loss in the back of the hands.

Sculptra: an FDA-approved injectable that helps gradually replace lost collagen — an underlying cause of facial aging — for results that can last more than two years.

Dysport A prescription injection proven to help smooth the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows without changing the look or movement of the rest of your face. Untreated muscles still work normally, so you can continue to express feelings naturally.

Radiesse: a wrinkle filler used to plump the skin. Immediately, this filler works to add volume under the skin and over time, the benefits continue by stimulating your body’s own natural collagen. The natural results have been shown to last a year or more in many patients, making the treatment results both immediate and long-lasting.

Xeomin: frown lines form when facial expressions are made and the muscle under the skin contracts. Over time, as your skin ages, these repeated expressions cause lasting frown lines. Neurotoxins, such as Xeomin, are prescription medications that block the release of chemicals that cause these muscle contractions so frown lines are softened.
