Thanks to wonderful advancements in cosmetic dermatology, patients no longer have to undergo the knife in order to enjoy a makeover. A cosmetic injectable can help restore a patient’s timeless beauty, and the dramatic results are almost instant, with virtually no downtime.
To learn more about some of the cosmetic injectable we offer at our New Jersey offices in Marlton, Vineland, and Egg Harbor Township, contact our dermatology staff today.
Most injectables fall into the category of “fillers.” This type of cosmetic injectable is designed to fill wrinkles and depressions in a patient’s face which are caused by things like age, dramatic weight loss, or natural facial structure. Some such fillers are Juvéderm®, Radiesse®, and Sculptra®, which are covered in greater detail on our dermal fillers page. Although these fillers treat facial signs of aging beautifully and have a natural appearance, they are only a reactionary solution.
Injectables, which can be both proactive and reactive, are typically made of a neuromuscular toxin, which serves to numb the muscles. In doing so, the muscles that create the wrinkle lines in the face are relaxed, keeping the skin wrinkle free for long periods of time. One of the most popular forms of this category is BOTOX® Cosmetic.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is an injectable that acts by temporarily blocking nerve impulses in facial muscles. It is most effective in muscles related to facial expression such as the eyes, forehead and around the mouth, reducing crow’s feet, forehead lines and lines from a furrowed brow. BOTOX® injections are safe and effective, and have been considered the gold standard for this type of treatment for almost 20 years.
In addition to treating laugh lines and wrinkles, BOTOX® injections can also help with sweating, as an injection into overactive sweat glands can greatly reduce the amount of sweat they produce. This is an excellent solution to this potentially embarrassing situation, for both men and women.
One of the most impressive advances in the last few years has been the utilization of different injectable products to achieve a result much like a face lift, without any surgery whatsoever. First we identify the areas of concern and then select the appropriate product. For example, we might use BOTOX® injections for some wrinkles around the eyes and then choose multiple fillers to recontour, lift and revolumize the rest of the face. Each filler substance varies and yields a different result, hence the need to choose the appropriate product for the job. There is a true art to recreating the contours and features of the face back to a more youthful state, while still maintaining a natural, non-surgical look.
