To learn about three of the most popular cosmetic injectables, read on in this blog from Prive Plastics.
What Is A Cosmetic Injectable?
Cosmetic injectables are a popular choice for reducing facial wrinkles and lines. With cosmetic injectable treatments, clients do not need to undergo intensive surgical procedures and endure a long recovery process. Two main types of injectable substances are neurotoxins (botulinum toxin type A) and dermal fillers. To achieve the best results, Dr. Wu of Prive Plastics may choose to use both neurotoxins and dermal fillers for your aesthetic goals.
Injections of neurotoxins (botulinum toxin type A) into the muscles of the face can help reduce the appearance of lines caused by facial expressions. Neurotoxins work by relaxing the muscles beneath the skin, allowing it to flatten out and lessen the wrinkles.
Injections of dermal fillers are administered along wrinkles and lines in order to plump the skin. A very thin needle is used to place the product into the wrinkle, line, or skin depression. While the results of dermal filler treatments are not permanent, clients can enjoy continued effects with regular treatments.
What Are 3 Of The Most Popular Cosmetic Injectables?
What Is Botox®?
Botox® is the first FDA-approved neurotoxin-based substance for the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles. It works by decreasing the activity of certain facial muscles, making existing wrinkles seem less prominent and preventing new lines from forming. This treatment is excellent for targeting certain areas, and it stays at the injection site, ensuring the results remain localized and precise. This makes it the go-to choice for delicate areas or those needing very precise attention.
Botox® injections are specifically designed to treat “dynamic” facial wrinkles that form as a result of facial expressions such as smiling, frowning, furrowing one’s brow, squinting, and laughing. These wrinkles, such as crow’s feet, large muscles, motion lines, facial asymmetry, necklines, and the 11’s, can be effectively treated with this method. Additionally, it can be used to reduce excessive perspiration and treat chronic migraines.
What Is Juvederm®?
The Juvederm® collection consists of numerous injectable dermal fillers that are highly effective in restoring a youthful look. These fillers help to restore lost volume, reduce wrinkles, and address other signs of facial aging. Juvederm® is made with synthetic hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a substance found naturally in the body that helps maintain healthy, supple skin and encourages collagen production.
Juvederm® is an effective treatment for a variety of common cosmetic concerns. These include forehead lines, brow furrows, temple depressions, crow’s feet, under-eye hollows, nasolabial folds, loss of volume in cheeks, smoker’s lines, marionette lines, lip lines, thin lips, and can be used to enhance the chin or jawline.
What Is Sculptra®?
Sculptra® is an injectable biostimulator made of poly-L-lactic acid. Once injected, Sculptra® promotes the body’s natural collagen production and stimulates the underlying cause of aging skin—loss of collagen. The result is a gradual restoration of facial volume and texture, as the injection microparticles stimulate the growth of new collagen.
Sculptra® works with the body’s natural proteins to rebuild skin structure and volume, providing a dramatic improvement in the skin’s appearance. This revolutionary dermal filler can be utilized on almost any part of the face, such as the cheekbones, cheeks, nose, mouth, chin, and under-eyes.
