Are you sick of seeing more wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin than you’d like when you look in the mirror? Cosmetic injectables could be the solution. With the help of our specialists at Manhattan Dermatology, you can turn back the hands of time.
Our team of dermatologists, surgeons, and care providers offers a comprehensive line of aesthetic services, including Botox® and other cosmetic injectables. With all of the choices on the market, though, it can be difficult to know which injectable is right for you.
We have you covered. Read on to learn more about injectables and which combination could be the right choice for your face.
What about Botox?
Since they were approved for cosmetic use in 2002, botox injections have become one of the most popular cosmetic injectable therapies. Botox injections work by relaxing the muscles under your skin so the lines and wrinkles that appear when you make facial expressions are minimized.
This break from wrinkling and folding allows your skin to smooth out, leaving you with younger-looking skin while still letting you make natural expressions. And if used regularly, Botox can help prevent deeper lines from forming.
Results from Botox are technique-dependent, meaning the skill of the person administering the injections is paramount. That’s why you should choose a provider with experience and knowledge, like our team members at Manhattan Dermatology.
What about other cosmetic injectables?
Injectables like dermal fillers erase wrinkles and restore lost facial volume, which naturally disappears as you age. Fillers are gel-like substances that we inject below your skin’s surface. We can use them to target different parts of your face, depending on your cosmetic goals.
For example, if you’re tired of seeing wrinkles around your lips, dermal fillers can smooth them away. Other dermal fillers can restore the fuller cheeks of your younger years while minimizing lines and folds around your mouth and nose.
Dermal fillers turn back the hands of time by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, proteins essential in new skin growth and tone, and replenishing hyaluronic acid, which lubricates and moisturizes your skin.
At Manhattan Dermatology, we may recommend one or more of the following:
- Juvéderm® XC
- Sculptra® Aesthetic
- Restylane® products
These minimally invasive alternatives to surgery grow in popularity each year. Even better? Because they’re created from substances naturally found in your body, injectables are a safe treatment when administered by trained experts, like our team at Manhattan Dermatology.
Which combination of cosmetic injectables is right for me?
Your anti-aging goals should be the driving factor when it comes to finding the right cosmetic injectable or combination of cosmetic injectables for your face.
For example, if you’re hoping to minimize crow’s feet around your eyes, frown lines between your eyebrows, or forehead wrinkles, Botox may be the right treatment option.
On the other hand, if restoring volume to your cheeks, rejuvenating your skin, or plumping your lips is the goal, one or more dermal fillers might be the right option.
While some patients opt to use one injectable, our patients who combine injectables or add other aesthetic services to their treatment plan typically experience better results.
