Cosmetic or Facial injectables include wrinkle-reducing injections and dermal fillers. Each has a slightly different purpose.
What are Wrinkle Reducing Injections?
Facial injectables are perfect for treating fine lines and crow’s feet. These lines can develop as your facial muscles contract and relax multiple times every day. Over time, these movements create unwanted wrinkles and particularly around your eyes or your forehead. These are called dynamic wrinkles and wrinkle reducing injections use minute amounts of Botox to reduce muscle contractions, so these muscles relax, creating a smoother appearance. Wrinkle reducing injections are especially helpful for fine lines that have only recently appeared.
What are Dermal Fillers?
Not all wrinkles are created by muscle contractions, as some are facial lines and folds that form as the skin loses volume naturally with age when the production of collagen slows down. Cosmetic Injectables restore lost facial volume and fullness and treatment is useful for plumping shallow facial areas and filling and softening static wrinkles. Dermal fillers are also useful for plumping up thinning lips.
