You feel young, active, and live a healthy lifestyle— but does your face reflect how you feel?
For many of us, the signs of aging, such as volume loss and wrinkles, can impact our confidence and stop us from feeling our best. Have you been considering ways to subtly enhance your look, creating a more beautiful and symmetrical face?
If so, injectable treatments may be a fantastic option for you. Treatments like Botox®, Xeomin® and anti-wrinkle injections are growing in popularity each year. With over 7 million patients enjoying the benefits each year, they are the most popular minimally-invasive procedure in the US.
Curious how injectables can help you enhance your look? If so, keep reading to learn the 15 reasons to try injectables today.
1. Use Injectable Treatments to Feel More Confident
One of the biggest reasons patients choose injectable treatments is to help restore confidence.
Aging is inevitable, but it can be hard to see your face develop creases, start to wrinkle, and lose facial volume, creating a different face in the mirror than what we used to see.
While we know confidence comes from within, we also all want to feel happy and confident with our outward appearance. For many, cosmetic procedures can give a boost of confidence to help with dating, the workplace, or simply just to enjoy what you see when you look in the mirror.
Injectables create anti-aging solutions and help you feel more confident in how you look, a big advantage for many people.
2. Restore Cheek Fullness
High cheekbones are considered elegant and beautiful. However, we weren’t all born with fashion-model genes.
Or, even if you had perfect cheekbones in your younger years, you may have noticed that they have started to lose some of their volume, causing your cheeks to look more hollow and flatter.
With injectables, you can use filler to bring back volume in your cheeks. This can replace what was naturally lost through the aging process or can be used to give you the high, full cheeks you’ve always wanted.
It can also be used under the eyes, in the tear trough area, to help fill in hollow-looking skin or to reduce the dark appearance of undereye circles.
Filler is usually given in 1ml amounts, so you have a lot of options for injectables—inject a smaller amount for a subtle, natural look, or more product can be used to create more dramatic results.
3. Long-Lasting Results
Patients love filler and neurotoxins, like Botox, for their longevity.
Typically, fillers, such as those used in cheeks and lips, last from 6-12 months. Botox tends to last 3-6 months. However, individual results will always vary based on the brand of product used and your body’s metabolism.
Because injectables have a long lifespan, they are perfect to try a few weeks before a big event, such as a wedding or vacation. You can get the exact look you want for your big event, ensuring you’re confident and photo-ready.
If you’re planning on big changes before an event, which may require several treatment sessions, you may want to start a few months beforehand. Your clinic should be able to give more details about how to time your procedures.
If for any reason you decide you don’t like injectables, the flip side is that they aren’t permanent, so it’s a low-commitment option.
4. ‘Have You Been Working Out?’
Injectables can not only be used to add volume and remove wrinkles, but they can also with permanent fat removal from small pockets of skin.
Even with exercise and a healthy lifestyle, some stubborn areas of fat are genetic and hard to remove, even with diet and fitness. This is commonly seen in places such as under the chin, which can create the double-chin appearance, or along the bra line.
You can use injectables to safely dissolve and melt away the fat in these areas, which often takes several sessions of a fat-injecting treatment. Your doctor can advise how many treatments are needed to obtain your desired results.
The results look completely natural, leaving friends and family to assume it’s the result of extra hours at the gym—not injectables.
5. Enjoy Full Lips
One of the most popular uses for filler is to create fuller lips. Many patients have thin lips, especially the top lip, and want to add more volume.
Filler can add volume to lips, create a more defined lip shape. Made from hyaluronic acid, a synthetic version of a natural substance in our body, filler is used to create subtle, beautiful results in lips.
Filler can be used to create a completely natural look, not obvious to anyone that you’ve been ‘touched up’. Over time, additional amounts of filler can be added to build up the lips to a larger size.
If you’ve always wanted your lips a bit plumper, filler can easily be used to create gorgeous results.
6. Reduce Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Want to make skin smoother and more youthful? If so, neurotoxins are a top choice.
They work by using a toxin which stops the injected facial muscles from contracting. The result is removed or reduced facial lines and wrinkles appearing on the skin.
Wrinkles are one of the most obvious signs of aging, but we can start developing them as early as our 30s or late 20s, depending on your genetics.
An expert health professional can use injectables to eliminate wrinkles in areas that may bother you, such as forehead lines. A few days after the treatment, you’ll start to notice your skin becoming smoother as the product starts taking effect.
7. Minimal Downtime
In a busy world, few of us have the downtime to rest at home for days or weeks after a cosmetic procedure.
With injectables, you can avoid this, which is a big part of its popularity.
With Botox injections, many patients have the treatment done on their lunch hour and then head back to work, as there is no need for recovery time. There aren’t any visible side effects, so no one will know that you’ve had a treatment done—except you!
Fillers also have limited downtime. However, they can often cause swelling, especially in the lips, so you may want to plan your procedure when you don’t have anything important scheduled for the next day.
Most injectable treatments can be completed in under an hour in the clinic. Most treatments are well tolerated by most patients in terms of pain, although pain relief can be provided.
8. Low Risk
Although there are inherent risks to any cosmetic or medical procedure, the risks associated with injectables are very low, as long as they are performed by an accredited professional.
Your clinician will explain to you in advance any risks associated with the treatment. However, as no anesthetic is involved and the patient is awake, it is much less invasive and risky than traditional cosmetic surgery.
Always let your clinician know about any pre-existing health conditions or current medication so they can accurately advise you of any risks.
9. Look More Relaxed
If you have forehead wrinkles, such as a furrowed brow or deep creases between your eyebrows, it can create the appearance of looking unhappy or stressed.
With injectables, you can release the tension in your forehead. By removing the wrinkles and smoothing out the skin on your forehead, you can look more relaxed and comfortable and less stressed.
Injectables work extremely well on the forehead and are a popular treatment option with many patients, men and women.
10. Natural Results
First-time patients are often concerned that they will look overdone if they try cosmetic fillers.
However, the most popular request for injectables is to create a natural result, something our clinic specializes in.
We believe injectables should be used to enhance and highlight your natural beauty, creating an authentic and beautiful look. All patients undergo a thorough consultation beforehand, with all treatments tailored to their preferences and needs.
In fact, injectables create such a glowing and natural look that you may have friends who get it done, without anyone even knowing!
11. Bring Back Your Youthful Glow
Looking younger and slowing down the aging process is a big reason for many patients to use injectables.
Wrinkles and volume loss to facial skin are two of the biggest signs of aging. With injectable fillers and Botox, these can easily be corrected or reduced.
Regular use of Botox from a younger age can also help prevent wrinkles from setting in and developing as you age, so it’s sometimes used as a preventative treatment as well.
If you’re hoping to reduce the signs of aging on your skin, don’t neglect sun protection as well. Always wear SPF on your face, wear hats and sunglasses, and try to limit your sun exposure.
12. Add Symmetry to Your Face
Scholars have often tried to define what makes a person ‘beautiful’ and it is often measured by symmetry. That is, the more symmetrical a face is, the more classically beautiful it is considered to be.
However, most don’t have a perfectly even face. There may be uneven volume or slightly different appearances to each side of the lips, or there may be more wrinkles or creases in one part of the face than another.
Using injectables, a clinician can assess your face and skin and add product where needed to add symmetry to your face.
This is very effective, resulting in many satisfied patients.
13. Less Risk Than Surgery
In decades past, the traditional facelift was the best way to tighten skin or remove wrinkles. While this is still performed today, many patients prefer the simplicity and convenience of injectables as an alternative.
They don’t require time in the hospital, there are few risks involved, and bruising, pain, and recovery time is almost non-existent.
The cost of injectables is also much more affordable, making it a fantastic alternative over surgery for many patients of all ages.
14. Helps Relieve Migraines
You may be surprised to learn that Botox has not only aesthetic benefits but also health benefits.
Do you suffer from tension headaches or migraines? If so, you’re familiar with the debilitating pain and frustration they cause.
In 2010, OnabotulinumtoxinA, known as Botox, was FDA approved for use in treating chronic migraines.
Your doctor will assess your medical history and determine if it could be a good treatment for you. However, it works well for many people, with studies showing that patients injected had an increased number of pain-free days each month.
15. Eliminate Crows Feet
Do you ever notice, especially in photos while you’re smiling, that you have wrinkles around the edges of your eyes?
These are known as crows feet, due to their appearance, and are very common as we approach our 30s and upwards.
However, they have an aging effect that can make us feel like we aren’t looking our best.
With neurotoxins, a few small injections around the eyes can be used to smooth out the skin and reduce or eliminate crows feet. This is a very popular treatment for many patients.
