What Fillers and Injectables Are Right For You?

Today’s advancements in aesthetic treatments have given way to a variety of options that are quick, non-invasive, and can transform your face in minutes! Injectables remain one of the most popular cosmetic choices for women and men worldwide. There are injectables like Botox, Dysport & Daxxify, which smooth away fine lines and wrinkles, and there are dermal fillers that can address volume loss in the face.

Because of all these options, it is important to choose wisely when it comes to your injector. A board-certified plastic surgeon, like Dr. Papel, Dr. Kontis, and Dr. Brown, has the expertise and the skill to guide you through the process.

There’s an Injectable for Every Concern

You name the issue, and there is likely an injectable available specifically to address it. Whether you’re looking to smooth wrinkles or plump up areas of volume loss, neuromodulators, and dermal fillers can work wonders. Some of the other concerns that can be addressed with injectables include:

  • Crepey skin
  • Thinning lips
  • Hollowed cheeks
  • Sagging jawline
  • Deep nasolabial folds
  • Vertical lip lines
  • Forehead lines
  • Crow’s feet

Neuromodulators Are Injectables But Not Fillers

Botox, and its cousins Dysport & Daxxify, are injectables but they don’t add volume. They are designed to temporarily freeze the muscles that control certain facial expressions. They can smooth your forehead lines and crow’s feet and allow you to appear rested and more youthful.

Hyaluronic Acid Fillers Smooth and Plump

These hyaluronic acid injectables (HAs), which include the umbrella of fillers under the Juvederm and Restylane brands, were developed to add moisture to the skin. Hyaluronic acid fillers are cross-linked, which means these formulas are made in a gel form that holds its shape to create volume and structure in the skin. These dermal fillers are long-lasting and can be used to address many signs of aging.

Hyaluronic acid fillers can also be used for fuller lips, to add volume and lift to the cheekbones, and to smooth and fill in deep folds and vertical lip lines. They can even be injected along the jawline to create firmer facial contours.

These fillers come in several types, and your plastic surgeon can select the right product for you.

Non-Hyaluronic Acid Fillers Build Collagen

Non-hyaluronic acid fillers are also a highly effective option. These filters, which include Sculptra and Radiesse, are made of poly-L-lactic acid or calcium hydroxylapatite. While they take time to see significant results as they gradually stimulate natural collagen growth, these fillers can help restore facial volume and firmness and give you the results you’re looking to achieve.
