Picking The Right Injectable Based On Your Goals
Injectables are one of the most sought-after aesthetic procedures on the market. And it’s no secret why! Injectable treatments offer both women and men a non-invasive way to achieve similar results to much more invasive plastic surgery methods. Injectables can be used for adding volume to cheeks, diminishing the look of fine to severe lines and wrinkles, and plumping lips for that movie star look. With so many options available it can be hard for patients to know what injectable would be best for them, especially since many injectables can be used for the same problem areas. The best way to select the right injectable is to think about what you want to accomplish, then go from there. Below are a few of the best options for injectables based on your goals.
If you want your wrinkles to disappear, try:
Botox: Botox is used to remove wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing muscles. It is made from a neurotoxin called botulinum toxin. Botox also has uses outside the realm of fixing your problem wrinkles, including treating excessive sweating, migraines, and even some bladder and bowel ailments.
Dysport: Dysport is another method of injectable treatment for lines and wrinkles with the active ingredient botulinum toxin, similar to Botox. It’s primarily used to fill in moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows and around the eyes, including those pesky “crows feet”. The injections relax muscles under your skin so the area appears smoother and brighter. Botox and Dysport and both considered neuromodulators, or wrinkle-relaxing agents.
To add volume to lips and cheeks, try:
Juvederm: Juvederm is an injectable containing hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body. When it comes to the best injectables for lips, Juvederm is considered the gold standard. Since it’s FDA-approved, it’s also one of the safest injectables available. Juvederm adds natural plumpness to the lips, producing the ever-sought-after movie star pout.
Restylane: While Restylane can also be used for lip and cheek enhancement, it works particularly well in the areas around the nose and cheeks. Restylane also contains hyaluronic acid. Another difference between Restylane and Juvederm is that many patients see the effects of Restylane in just one session, while you may have to undergo multiple sessions for Juvederm results.
To eliminate your double chin, try:
Kybella: Kybella is a revolutionary injectable that can literally dissolve your double chin by killing fat cells with a synthetic form of an acid found that’s found naturally in the body. You will likely need multiple injections to dissolve the fat over time. Kybella is the only FDA-approved solution for getting rid of your double chin.
At the end of the day, the injectable treatment you choose depends on your goals. Speak with your doctor about what you hope to achieve and he or she will be able to recommend the best course of treatment for you.
