Injectables: An Evolving Field of Possibilities

A key advantage that comes from the millions of procedures and applications of injectables for rejuvenating the face is that the amount of experience behind these products is impressive. That’s reassuring, and it also has resulted in more research and new developments.

So, the options available today are greater than ever. But with so many options available, doesn’t it make sense to get personal advice that is just as professional as you would seek for any cosmetic procedure? The skill that comes from having a board-certified plastic surgeon at the head of the practice is called for even at the stage of selecting which injectable is right for you.

Results That Last, Naturally

A compound of natural collagen and microspheres called ArteFill provides volume to smooth wrinkles and folds right away, and as the collagen in ArteFill is absorbed gradually by the body, the microspheres stay on, giving a matrix of support for the skin’s own collagen supply. This dual action produces immediate results and makes way for the body’s ongoing enhancement.

Tried and True

The best-known non-surgical ways to erase wrinkles are by relaxing the muscles beneath the skin or by adding volume to the skin itself. Different regions of the face are among the first determining factors in choosing between the two, but your own unique characteristics and goals bring in a host of other variables.

Radiesse can be useful for enhancing areas that are not readily addressed by other injectables, areas like flat or hollow cheeks. It interacts with the skin’s own processes, stimulating collagen growth, and the results can last as long as a year in many cases.

Juvéderm smooths facial folds and wrinkles by bringing back volume, and it is useful in many cases for lip enhancement to put back volume that may have been lost as we age. It is a natural dermal filler made from a smooth, water-soluble substance that already is present to some extent within the skin.

Practically legendary for the relax-the-muscles approach, Botox is among the most widely accepted injectables, particularly for erasing forehead wrinkles and frown lines. The application time is only about 10 minutes per injection, the results are noticeable within 24 to 48 hours, and they last four to six months in most cases. Many people, however, find that Dysport is a better option.

Despite the vast experience behind it, Botox applications are not a technique to be taken lightly. Though an MD is not needed for each application, it makes sense to choose a practice guided by board-certified plastic surgeons for your consultation.

Making the Choice That’s Right for You

The key to getting the benefit of these opportunities is finding the board-certified plastic surgeon with the experience and perspective to counsel you as you select the one that’s right for you.
