Aesthetic injectables are treatments that place substances inside your skin using sterile hypodermic needles. There are many injectables to choose from, each designed to achieve specific goals.
Injectables rely on powerful substances to trigger changes in your facial contouring. Ensure that your injectables are administered by medical professionals who understand how to perform these treatments in a safe and sterile manner.
Treatments like Botox® and Xeomin® are formulated from a natural substance called Clostridium botulinum. Toxic in specific concentrations, this substance limits the ability of muscle fibers to go through their full range of motion.
The volume used in cosmetic injections is carefully controlled and perfectly safe. These treatments are FDA-approved for temporarily reducing the appearance of forehead lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet.
Results develop within a couple of days and last around four months. At that point, you can extend your results with another round of injections. Neurotoxin injectables create a more youthful and well-rested appearance without invasive cosmetic procedures.
Dermal fillers are an injectable treatment that enhances volume in specific areas of your face. They reduce the visible effects of aging that develop when you naturally lose much of the collagen and elastin that keeps your skin plump and elastic.
Most dermal fillers are made of a synthetic version of hyaluronic acid, a substance your body naturally produces. Fillers have a soft, gel like consistency that allows them to spread within the injection area.
Fillers can improve contouring in the following areas:
Other dermal fillers are designed to plump your lips and refine the contouring of your lip line. You can even have fillers placed to smooth out the skin on the backs of your hands, which often show aging before the face.
