Injectable Treatments - Benefits

Posted Feb 06 2013 3:31am

Injectable treatments have become very popular because of their capability of softening telltale signs of aging and improving your looks. They work by enhancing your natural features such as the cheeks, and lips. Injectable treatments help to bring back lost volume, improve the elasticity of the skin and reduce wrinkles.

Botox Treatment for Wrinkles

Botox or Botulinum toxin type A restricts muscle activity that is responsible for causing expression lines. These muscles relax following the injection with Botox, which in turn helps to reduce wrinkles.

  • Any muscle activity in your body can be targeted with Botox cosmetic treatment.
  • It is commonly used to treat frown lines between the eyebrows, forehead lines and crows’ feet or laughter lines at the side of the eyes.
  • Botox can also be applied around the mouth, chin and neck area.
The effects of the treatment can be seen from the 3rd day post injections. The complete effects of the treatment can be seen by 10 days.

Injectable Fillers for Restoring Lost Volume

Injectable fillers such as Juvederm and Radiesse comprise largely of hyaluronic acid and water. They replenish the body’s own supply of hyaluronic acid, and work to revitalize and plump up the skin. This helps to level out wrinkles and provide a younger look. Injectable fillers are introduced into the treatment area in small amounts via a very fine needle.
  • This treatment is quick and can be completed in less than 30 minutes.
  • It enhances your natural looks
  • Nose, cheeks, chin, hands can all be treated effectively
According to data provided by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the number of filler treatments such as Radiesse has increased threefold during the decade and the trend is on the higher side. In short, injectable treatments are used more often than the surgical procedures of yesteryears.

Radiesse, for instance, is a therapy that is approved by the FDA and used for the treatment of fine lines to wrinkles of severe intensity. However, every woman should understand that the success of these treatments depend on various factors such as age, type of skin and the lifestyle followed by the individual on whom the treatment is administered.

Although injectable fillers are widely used nowadays, they may have to be used periodically to maintain the good results obtained. However, their benefits far outweigh their shortcomings and so these therapies continue to remain popular as a means of staying young without undergoing invasive procedures.
