Are you interested in enhancing your face but don’t want to undergo surgical procedures to do it? Many women and men want to address parts of their appearance but do not necessarily want to undergo cosmetic surgery. If you are too scared for more complex procedures but want a more youthful appearance, injectables could be the answer!

Many adults become concerned about the appearance of wrinkles and lines on their skin. These lines make them look older and more tired. This is precisely why so many women and men are turning to injectables to improve their appearance and get a youthful look that turns back the clock.

The injectables that we offer include Botox and soft-tissue dermal fillers. Each has its own applications.

What Are Injectables?

Injectables are copyrighted and trademarked types of prescription medicine that can be used for cosmetic enhancement. They are incredibly popular cosmetic tools that have become a household name!

Injectables are injected into key areas of the face to temporarily remove the appearance of lines and wrinkles, resulting in smoother skin that appears younger. Injectables are well known as an alternative to surgery for individuals who still want to be proactive about aging and looking youthful.

Millions of people have used injectables as an option for treating their wrinkles and lines without having to undergo a face lift or other procedures that require an increased recovery time, often multiple days or weeks.

Botox, the brand name for onabotulinumtoxinA, is injected into contracted muscles to ease the look of fine lines and facial wrinkles. Fillers, on the other hand, are injected into the skin tissues to fill moderate and deep lines and wrinkles in the face.

How Do Injectables Work?

Botox is primarily utilized as a cosmetic procedure, but it is also used in the medical domain for migraines and overactive bladder. Getting Botox will reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles such as crow’s feet and frown lines.

Botox works by reducing the natural contractions in the muscles that occur normally when your face moves to laugh or to frown. Botox will temporarily reduce the muscle activity and not only reduce lines from the past but prevent the lines from getting deeper in the future.

You should begin to notice the effects within 24 to 48 hours of getting the treatment. Botox works to temporarily improve the appearance of these lines and will be effective for roughly four months, during which time you will experience a marked improvement in the appearance of lines on your face.

Fillers reduce the look of deeper wrinkles like the nasolabial folds, marionette lines, parentheses lines, smoker’s lines, and chin wrinkles. Fillers work through the addition of volume to key regions of the skin that have lost volume over time. As these regions regain their volume, the wrinkles ease away. Results are typically immediate depending on the type of product. Fillers last longer in the skin than Botox does, so their results will be visible for several more months than Botox.

Which Areas Can Be Treated with Injectables?

Botox can be injected in a number of locations on the face to directly target those fine lines. Botox is commonly injected on the forehead to take care of those fine lines that form from raising eyebrows and other facial expressions. Or Botox may be injected by the brows to address deep furrow lines from furrowing the brow.

Botox is injected near the eyes to resolve crow’s feet and may also be injected on the neck at the platysmal bands, on the chin, on the nose (bunny lines), by the brows, and in other areas of the face to fix problem areas and create a smoother appearance.

Fillers are used to target harsh lines like the nasolabial folds, those deep wrinkles that stretch from the sides of the nose to the sides of the mouth. The marionette lines, which stretch down from the corners of the mouth, can also be treated in this way, as can parentheses lines, which appear at the sides of the mouth. Smoker’s lines, which appear as lines around the lips, can be resolved with fillers, as can chin wrinkles.

Where Can I Get Botox and Fillers?

Getting injectables is very easy! You can call your doctor and do it at the office, or you can even make an appointment to have certified specialists administer the product at an outside location such as your home or a hotel room. It’s common for women to even throw injectable parties where they have
