What are Injectable Treatments?
Injectable treatments are utilized on the face to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face and neck area. Some injectable treatments can even be used to help remove the look of dark pigmented skin spots, spider veins, acne scars, and bags under the eyes. Sure, face cream can help with those problems as well, but nothing beats the injectable treatment. A few of the different injectables and dermal fillers you can choose from are Botox which relaxes the muscles in the face to remove fine lines and wrinkles, Dysport which is very similar to Botox in terms of what it does for your face, and dermal fillers which restore lost volume. All are very good options that also compliment one another. There are a few reasons why injectable treatments are better than your standard face cream.
It’s not uncommon for one individual to switch from face cream to face cream in search of results that don’t quite materialize. The reality is that creams and serums take time to work, if they work at all. With injectables, however, results are usually immediate. Though there may be some minor redness or swelling after a treatment, the results of fillers are typically seen right away. With Botox and Dysport, results are typically seen within a few days. After one treatment, results generally last anywhere from three months to a year or longer depending on the injectable used.
Safe for the Body
All types of surgery involve risk, including cosmetic surgery. Even face creams come with fine print detailing potential safety risks and precautions. It’s true that injectables carry potential risks as well, but their use is well documented and they have an excellent safety record. As with any procedure, be sure to find a qualified injector, like a board certified plastic surgeon, who has extensive experience with injectables.
Longevity of the Injectable
Even though the injectable may wear off after 6 months to a year, additional treatments can be scheduled to continue the desired look. Face creams can take weeks and months of daily use to show any sort of improvement towards the look you have desired. Injectables offer excellent results after a single session and can be repeated as needed to maintain your results.
