By adding structure, framework, and volume to the face and lips, injectables can be used to ease facial wrinkles and folds, shape the body, and improve the symptoms of facial fat loss. Several injectable procedures enhance specific problem regions.
Numerous dermatologists choose injectable cosmetics over laser and chemical treatments for numerous skin-related issues. Botox and fillers are injectable procedures that are both safer and more effective. Fillers work to restore volume and fullness to the skin, softening and improving its appearance. They are injected through an ultra-fine needle beneath the skin’s surface, under the wrinkle or scar. Botox and Dysport are injectables that work to relax targeted muscles and reduce or completely get rid of wrinkles brought on by repetitive muscle movements by blocking the body’s chemical impulses from nerves to muscles in a particular area.
Types of Injectables
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a type of injectable temporary dermal filler.
The body naturally contains hyaluronic acid, with the joints, eyes, and skin having the largest quantities. Hyaluronic acid draws water to the skin, causing the skin to become more hydrated. Our facial muscles, fat, bone, and skin start to deteriorate as we get older. Due to this volume loss, the face seems sunken or sagging and has fine lines, creases, folds, and thin lips. Fine lines and wrinkles, facial folds, and the appearance of volume loss in the lips and face are all treated with injectable Hyaluronic acid.
