Choosing the Best Injectable Treatment

Safe, effective injectable treatments are common among all plastic surgery centers. Depending on the areas you wish to enhance and what type the plastic surgeon uses, men and women alike can gain results that seemingly reverse the aging process, create volume and bring about a more youthful appearance. Receiving these almost painless injectable treatments are the easy part – the difficult part is choosing exactly which ones are the very best for you, and what you’re looking to achieve.

 

Botox

Getting older is completely inevitable, whether we like it or not. Something that’s not inevitable? Dealing with those pesky, unwanted markings that aging brings to the skin. If you’re serious about getting rid of the wrinkles and premature age lines that tend to plague our skin over time, then Botox is a genius solution.

A small amount of Botox – boltulinum toxin – is injected into a group of targeted muscles using a fine needle. The Botox then works quickly to block those signals that occur from the nerves to the muscles, which prevents the injected muscle from contracting, ultimately smoothing out the age line and wrinkles altogether. Botox takes 5 to 7 days to work, and the results last around four months. Additionally, Botox also treats medical conditions, including but not limited to, chronic migraines, muscle spasms and eye twitches.

 

Juvederm and Voluma

Aside from wrinkles and fine lines, aging – in addition to years of sun exposure – also causes our face to become extremely thinned. The reason is simple: Hyaluronic acid, a hydrating sugar naturally found in our skin, decreases with age. Because this acid is responsible for binding and absorbing water – and ultimately refreshing our skin – the diminished, thinned out appearance occurs over time. For those men and women who are affected by this, and are currently looking to restore a rounder, plumper appearance to their cheeks and lips, Juvederm and other forms of it, such as Voluma, Volure and Vobella, may be the right injectables for you.

FDA approved, Juvederm injects Hyaluronic acid, in the form of gel, into your skin. This amps up the production of collagen and elastin in the skin, creating a firm and full look. Juvederm truly restores the skin’s volume in a way that everyone will notice, all while appearing as though it happened naturally. Men and women who receive Juvederm must repeat sessions about every year to reap all the benefits. Voluma is another form of Juvederm, which works to achieve a full appearance to flattened out cheeks using hyaluronic acid. Those who choose to receive a Voluma injectable can expect to enjoy its long-lasting results and benefits for as long as two years. Volure is a newer option, and usually lasts for 18 months.

 

Kybella

While many injectables are well known for enhancing an aging complexion, others aid in getting rid of an area plagued with excess fat. The Kybella injectable treatment does just that, acting as the industry’s go-to solution for minimizing the appearance of excess chin and neck fat. More commonly referred to as a “double chin,” our bodies sometimes accumulate an extra amount of fat cells on the upper portions of the neck – regardless of whether or not this is a genetic predisposition or lifestyle issue, many men and women feel self conscious about it, and wish to trim down the area. Thanks to Kybella, this becomes a reality.

Utilizing deoxycholic acid in the form of injections, this unwanted fat is broken down and destroyed, all while leaving the rest of the cells in the chin and neck completely untouched. Each Kybella injection session is only fifteen to thirty minutes long, and a series of injections will get rid of the double chin entirely. If you desperately want to get rid of this all-too-common, fatty area on your body, definitely consider a Kybella injection treatment to help you out.

 

Consult a Plastic Surgeon to Help You Decide

Deciding which injectable is right for you can be a painless process, especially when you consider how they are administered into your skin. Botox, Juvederm, Voluma, Volure, Vobella and Kybella are all non-invasive procedures, which means that you are able to drastically enhance you appearance without the use of surgery and without the long period of recovery time that typically follows. When you consider just how simple these treatments are, it’s only a matter of time before you’ll be scheduling your own injectable session!

If you’re still unsure about which injectable is the best one for you, be sure to consult an experienced, board certified plastic surgeon, such as Dr. Christine Blaine of Blaine Plastic Surgery.
