What Are Cosmetic Injectables?
Cosmetic injectables are minimally invasive non-surgical treatments that aim to resolve certain aesthetic concerns. These include wrinkles, fine lines, weak facial structure, and thin lips. The most popular types of cosmetic injectables include neuromodulators and dermal fillers.
Neuromodulators are cosmetic injectables that work directly with the nerves and muscles in the face to reduce age-related changes and prevent further ones from developing. Neuromodulation is an effective anti-aging treatment because it targets the most common source of fine lines and wrinkles.
These signs of aging are often caused by excessive facial movement and continuous facial expressions like frowning and smiling. Neuromodulator injections contain a substance called botulinum toxin, which temporarily subdues the facial nerves and muscles.
This limits facial movement, reducing the appearance of existing wrinkles and fine lines while preventing new ones from developing. Neuromodulators can provide the following aesthetic benefits and more:
- Smoother, tighter skin
- Reduced fine lines around the eyes
- Diminished wrinkles surrounding the mouth (marionette lines)
- Smoothing of forehead creases or frown lines
- Prevention of further age-related changes
The most popular brands of neuromodulator injections are Botox and Dysport. Both produce significant and long-lasting results, but Dysport may begin to work faster in some patients. A consultation with our cosmetic providers can determine which type of neuromodulator is the best choice for you.
Dermal fillers are cosmetic injectables for face enhancement or age-related volume loss. These injectables work by adding a hyaluronic acid solution beneath the skin and increasing collagen production. The combined effect of hyaluronic acid and increased collagen can add fullness to the face and accentuate certain facial features.
As you age, the amount of natural collagen and hyaluronic acid within your skin declines, leading to hollow, sagging cheeks or under-eyes. When hyaluronic acid and collagen are low, your skin will appear sullen and drop downwards.
Dermal fillers aim to correct this by boosting your natural collagen production and supplementing injectable hyaluronic acid. The result is an increase in fullness that can be used to create a more youthful appearance and provide the following cosmetic benefits:
- Increased volume under the eyes
- Fuller, more youthful cheeks
- Plumper lips
- More prominent cheekbones
- Stronger jawline
- Increased ongoing collagen production
Restylane and Juvéderm are two popular lines of dermal filler products. Each injectable in the Restylane or Juvéderm line has been specifically formulated to provide a unique cosmetic benefit.
Another commonly used dermal filler is Radiesse, an innovative injectable that uses the thinnest hyaluronic acid solution to add fullness in delicate areas like the lips and around the mouth.
Common Questions About Cosmetic Injectables
If you’ve never had cosmetic injectables administered before, you may have some questions or concerns about the treatment. The following are a few of the most frequently asked questions about cosmetic injectables.
Who Is a Candidate for Cosmetic Injectables?
One of the best things about cosmetic injectables is that almost anyone can benefit from them. Neuromodulators are great for helping older patients resolve age-related changes, but they can also act as an anti-aging preventative treatment for younger patients.
Clients of any age can use dermal fillers to correct age-related volume loss or enhance certain facial features, like the lips and cheekbones.
To find out whether you are a candidate for cosmetic injectables, you should seek a consultation with one of our cosmetic medicine professionals. We can assess your skin and facial structure to determine whether you would benefit from neuromodulators or dermal fillers.
Is There Any Downtime After Cosmetic Injectable Treatment?
A major benefit of cosmetic injectables is that they don’t require any recovery or downtime afterward. Patients can resume normal activities the same day as their treatment.
When Will I See the Results of My Injectables?
Whether you receive neuromodulators or dermal fillers, your cosmetic injectables will produce almost immediate results. Within hours of your treatment, you should notice a difference in how your skin looks and feels.
Neuromodulators like Botox and Dysport will produce a tightening and firming effect that continues to develop over the next three to four days after your treatment. You will also notice that your skin’s movement feels more restricted.
Dermal fillers will create noticeable volume under the skin in the hours after your session. This volume will continue to develop over the first week following your treatment.
