Injectable procedures such as Botox and dermal fillers currently rank among the most popular non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments in the US.
The cosmetic injectable treatment is as much of an art as it is science, and to achieve safe and desirable results, it is vital that you choose an experienced injection provider at a qualified medical spa.
The active ingredient in Botox injections is botulinum toxin type A, which will temporarily relax the overactive facial muscles to mitigate the appearance of facial wrinkles and lines.
The FDA has approved Botox injections for the cosmetic reduction of frown lines and crow’s feet. Experienced providers can also use it effectively in other facial areas to reduce the effects of facial aging.
Dysport injections work in a similar way as Botox, but can produce somewhat faster results and cover a larger surface area to mitigate the facial signs of aging. Dynamic wrinkles such as the vertical lines between the brows and horizontal lines on the forehead can be smoothened with Dysport.
Xeomin injections perform a similar role as Botox and Dysport to diminish the effect of dynamic facial wrinkles, such as frown lines, marionette lines, crow’s feet, forehead lines, and bunny lines. Xeomin can also be used for lip flip, apart from some medical applications such as hyperhidrosis.
Juvederm is an FDA-approved dermal filler injection to volumize the targeted areas on the face and restore a smoother, youthful-looking appearance. Biocompatible Juvederm injections are available in different formulations, which makes it a versatile solution to minimize the facial signs of aging.
Belotero Balance is a hyaluronic acid-based cosmetic filler injectable treatment to smooth out mild to moderate facial lines and wrinkles, including nasolabial folds. Results with a single injectable treatment can last for up to six months or more.
Radiesse is a more advanced dermal filler injectable to treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Radiesse filler gel is composed of Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres. You can expect to achieve significant correction of facial lines and volume in the injected areas of the face as well as a fresh generation of collagen fibers in the deeper tissue with Radiesse.
Like Juvederm and Belotero Balance, Restylane is also a hyaluronic acid-based injectable filler to improve facial fullness and volume in specific areas. Restylane also treats dark circles and hollow underneath the eyes to provide a rejuvenated look.
Revanesse Versa is a relatively recent FDA-approved dermal filler that will soften the appearance of facial wrinkles with long-lasting results. A unique characteristic of this cosmetic filler is that it creates minimal post-injection inflammation and produces more even-looking results.
Unlike facial fillers and neuromodulators like Botox, Kybella is a unique injectable treatment designed to reduce submental fat (below the chin). This FDA approved injection can create a more defined chin contour and a slimmer neckline. If you are seeking double chin reduction without undergoing surgery, Kybella could be an ideal treatment for you.
All these injectable procedures can produce dramatically appealing results, but only if they are performed by a skilled and experienced injection provider at a well-equipped medical spa.
