Cosmetic injectables are some of the most popular cosmetic treatments performed each year. That’s because they can accomplish a wide variety of cosmetic goals with little to no downtime in quick, easy injection sessions. If you’re looking to boost your confidence and feel like your best self, then injectables are a great way to achieve your goals with the help of your board certified dermatologist.
Botox® and Dysport®
Botox® and Dysport® are neuromodulators – they block chemical signals from the brain to the muscles which cause movement. When injected into areas like the brow or around the eyes, neuromodulators can relax muscles that cause wrinkles and fine lines that form over time from regular movement. The result is a smoother, more youthful look that can last between three to six months. It can take up to a week to see your results settle in, and your dermatologist can determine which option is best for your treatment areas and cosmetic goals.
Juvéderm® is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler that can fill in lines and folds in the face. Hyaluronic acid is a complex sugar naturally found in your skin that is responsible for retaining moisture and suppleness. In a crystal-clear gel, it can restore volume where collagen loss creates lines and folds around the mouth. Juvéderm can last for up to one year, after which you can return for re-treatment.
Voluma® is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler in the Juvéderm family of injectables that can add volume to the cheeks. Called age-related midface volume loss, it’s common to lose shape in the cheeks as you age. Voluma can restore shape and plumpness to the cheeks for more youthful contours and a lifted look. You’ll see instant results with Voluma with improvement in areas like the nasolabial folds and cheeks. It can last for two years after which you can return for retreatment. The midface is often a great starting point for fillers as it helps to redistribute the midface volume back toward the “triangle of youth.”
Restylane® is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler that can be used for a variety of treatment areas. It can be used to fill in wrinkles and folds like smile lines in the midface. It can also be used to effectively enhance the lips if you’re looking to add volume or restore volume loss because of aging. Restylane can last for eighteen months or longer, after which you can opt for re-treatment.
Belotero Balance® is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is designed to integrate into your skin to restore volume to areas like the nasolabial folds, smile lines, and vertical lip lines. During injection, the flexible gel blends into your natural tissues for a perfectly natural look and feel. Belotero can last for six months or more, but this can depend on your treatment areas— for example, areas like the mouth that move often can mean that the product fades faster.
Sculptra® is a unique dermal filler made with poly-L-lactic acid. This filler is unique because it can boost your body’s natural production of collagen at the same time as restoring volume to the temples, nasolabial lines, and marionette lines. After injection, your body will begin to produce more collagen as the product itself fades, leaving behind natural volume. This means your results will appear gradually and can last for up to two years. This makes Sculptra one of the most natural and effective filler options on the market.
