Beyond BOTOX: The Facts About Cosmetic Injectables and Fillers
For most, BOTOXâ is a household name when it comes to injectables and non-surgical skin enhancement. And although BOTOX has had a proven safety record for more than 20 years, during that time, many other non-surgical cosmetic injectables have entered the market and have been shown to be just as safe and successful.
Beyond BOTOX, here are some important facts about cosmetic injectables and dermal fillers, which you should consider as you decide on your non-surgical facial skin treatment…
- Injectables get results with minimally invasive treatments. Cosmetic fillers are best at repairing and correcting the skin effects of aging, such as creases, wrinkles, and damage like recessed scars. They can also enhance the elasticity and volume of your skin, by plumping your lips and rejuvenating your skin to smooth and define contours. Since they are non-surgical, the treatments are minimally invasive and require little to no recovery downtime.
- Natural fillers are available. Your options in non-surgical injectables are not limited to synthetic materials! The cosmetic skincare industry has developed several natural fillers, including hyaluronic acids, which occur naturally in your body and attract moisture to plump the skin. Some of the natural fillers available today include collagen injections, Restylaneâ, and Juvéderm™.
- Fillers can postpone the need for full facial plastic surgery. Although cosmetic injectables do have excellent results in skin rejuvenation, they cannot achieve the same dramatic results that a surgical facelift will. However, consistent treatment with fillers may delay your need for facial plastic surgery because the injections can keep your skin fresh and supple for longer.
