Injectables are becoming more popular every year and continue to gain traction thanks to their minimally-invasive nature.

Of the millions of cosmetic procedures performed annually, a growing percentage of them are trending towards minimally-invasive techniques.

These injectable treatment options are excellent ways to enhance the skin by reducing wrinkles, smoothing and tightening the skin, and providing fullness to specific areas.

Without any downtime required after treatment, injectables are cheaper, quicker alternatives to surgical procedures.

Injectables can achieve smoother, more youthful skin along your forehead, eyes, and mouth.

What Types of Injectables Are Available?

Some injectables address fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, eyebrows, and forehead, while others address depleted volume from various areas of the face.

Your specific concerns and desired results will determine which treatment is right for you. Every injectable is slightly different in composition, so there are plenty of choices to choose from.

BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport®

Patients with glabella lines (furrows between the eyebrows), forehead wrinkles, and fine lines around their eyes can receive BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport® injections.

When strategically placed, these injections relax the targeted muscles for smoother, softer skin.

Dermal Fillers

Injectable fillers utilize hyaluronic acid to achieve facial volume and smoother skin. Dermal fillers blend out lines and wrinkles along the face.

Certain fillers are mixed with trace amounts of lidocaine, which is a local anesthetic, to provide fuller skin without pain.

Fillers with lidocaine include JUVÉDERM® XC, JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC, and JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC. Each injectable filler has a specific area of the face to target.

Dermal fillers without lidocaine include Restylane®, Restylane® Silk, which is designed specifically for the lips and skin surrounding the mouth, and RADIESSE®.

Ice and a topical anesthetic can be applied to reduce discomfort during injection.

By filling in hollowed regions of the face with dermal filler injectables, you can achieve smoother, fuller facial skin.
