Injectable aesthetics restore your beautiful face many ways – they give you back volume loss, smooth fine lines and wrinkles, shape your cheeks, enhance chin and jawline, melt areas of fat and so much more. Anti-aging treatments rejuvenate your skin tone and features to help restore a natural and youthful appearance. Injectable face fillers are designed to make your skin appear younger, smoother and provide new contours to facial features.
Injectables include Botox®, which you’ve probably heard of, and Xeomin®, which is also a botulinum toxin type A used for reducing wrinkles. Botox® and Xeomin® are toxins produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacteria. They work by decreasing the nerve signals that are sent to your muscles. When a muscle wants to move, a message is sent via nerves telling muscles to contract and move. When this happens, a chemical called acetylcholine is released, and this chemical binds to the muscle and causes the muscle to move. When your specialist injects Botox® or Xeomin®, these injectables block the acetylcholine from binding to the muscle. Once acetylcholine is blocked, the muscle is unable to move or contract. New wrinkles are not formed, and old wrinkles smooth out.
Botox and Xeomin help correct dynamic lines that are caused by the expressions you make daily. For example, frowning, squinting, and concentrating cause hyperfunction of muscles, the muscles move and create dynamic frown lines. Some of these lines are in common areas like between your brow, horizontal forehead lines, and crow’s feet.
Other areas where Botox can help is in the chin. The muscle responsible for causing the mouth to turn down and create horizontal lines and neck bands.
Immediately after treatment, the skin where the injections occurred may appear red. Redness will resolve itself within 30 minutes to an hour after treatments, and the skin will look as it did before treatment. It will take several days before results begin to be noticed. Every day that goes by, results will get better, and full effects will take place about 14 days after the injections. Both injectables are temporary and last 3 to 4 months.
Face or Dermal Fillers
Face or dermal fillers give you a younger look for a portion of traditional facelift surgery. Fillers take care of the wrinkles, hollows, and lines on your face in about 30 minutes. Results can last from 3 months to nearly a year or more.
Injectable wrinkle fillers are not Botox® that freezes muscles, but injectable materials that fill your facial lines, creases, or areas with one of several different substances. As a result, your wrinkles and trouble spots seem to disappear. You can also request face fillers to be used to plump and lift cheeks, chins, temples and define jawlines. Dermal fillers can be used to fill out thin lips and plump wrinkled and bony hands.
Dermal fillers are fast and relatively easy, and specialists will provide you with fillers that have the least risks and best results. Make sure you have fillers injected by a board-certified specialist or a dermatologist who has had ongoing and specialized training.
The most popular wrinkle fillers are hyaluronic acid. These fillers include Juvéderm Voluma SC, Juvéderm XC, Juvéderm Ultra Plus, and Belotero Balance. How long your results last vary from several months to over a year or two. There is research that shows when repeated injections are used, your body’s natural production of collagen may be stimulated. More collagen production may help reduce the number of lines and wrinkles you have. Some studies show that over time you may need less filler.
You can also request synthetic wrinkle fillers. These are lab-made substances that are not related to anything found naturally in your skin. Synthetic fillers do have side effects like redness and swelling and in extraordinary instances may require surgery to remove them.
Synthetic wrinkle fillers do have a longer-lasting effect. However, remember that products with longer-lasting results may cause side effects, especially when not used correctly. Some synthetic fillers you may have heard about include Bellafill, Radiesse, and Silicone.
There are also collagen face fillers. These fillers are made from a purified form of collagen that is extracted mainly from cows. It has worked well and offered natural looking fill, but the results don’t last long. Many collagen fillers may break down in as short a time as one month, and there might be some allergic reaction to the preparation.
Face filler or dermal fillers are the safest cosmetic procedures in use today. To ensure that your treatment, however, is safe for you, follow these few ideas.
- If you are offered a face filler treatment that costs far less than standard treatments, it’s likely that compromises are being made. Don’t bargain with your face.
- Face fillers should be done in a medical setting and with sterile instruments.
- Know what is being used as an injectable in your face. Make sure the filler is an FDA approved product.
- Use sunscreen and skin hygiene to help preserve the filler and protect against post-inflammatory pigment changes.
