Injectables_InfographicWrinkles and volume loss are usually the first signs of aging that we try to combat. At-home creams and serums often don’t produce outstanding results because aging occurs deeper in the tissues than most beauty products can reach. If you want to see significant improvement in the quality of your skin, injectables may be the right treatment for you.

Unlike a surgical facelift, injectables are quick and painless with zero recovery period. There are various injectable options for you to choose from, each of which is tailored to meet your specific aging needs. While scheduling a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon is the best way to determine which injectable is right for you, having a clear understanding of your options will give you a preliminary idea of which injectable(s) can address your concerns.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a neurotransmitter inhibitor that uses botulinum toxin type A to prevent muscle contraction. This is an ideal injectable for patients with wrinkles caused by repetitive muscle movements, such as wrinkles and fine lines that occur around the eyes, along the forehead, and between the brows. If collagen or volume loss is the source of your wrinkles, chances are you are not a candidate for BOTOX® Cosmetic injections.

Facial Fillers

The facial filler market is booming with a vast range of options. Most fillers, like JUVÉDERM®, Restylane®, and Restylane® Lyft, are created from hyaluronic acid, which occurs naturally in the body. But some fillers, like RADIESSE®, use a different natural substance. All types of facial fillers are designed to stimulate collagen production to fill in wrinkles. Depending on the type of filler you choose, your results will last between six months and two years.

Facial fillers treat wrinkles or volume loss caused by collagen breakdown. Common treatment areas include:

  • Nasolabial folds
  • Cheeks
  • Lips
