Why Injectables are Gaining Popularity

Cosmetic injectables like Botox treatments have been on the rise. Over the past decade, the number of treatments performed have risen to over 700%.

Juvederm, Restylane and Perlane, the three most popular dermal fillers, are not far behind with an increase of 243% in treatments performed over the last 13 years.

So why are injectables getting more popular? Here’s a few of the benefits:

Minimal Downtime – These treatments are convenient. You can go to your dermatologist during your lunch hour and have it done. Add that to the fact that there’s no discomfort after the prodecure.

(Almost) Instant Results – Getting an injection of Botox, or dermal fillers like Juvederm/Restylane or Perlane would help diminish the look of fine lines on your facial area in just a couple of days. It’s good to have them done just in time for an important weekend event where you may have to look your best.

The Risk is Low – The typical side effects of injectables are mild bruising and swelling and just a little bit of redness. Only topical numbing agents are applied to the area for the injection.

The Benefits are Significant – If you want to revitalize your skin’s youthful appearance without getting any surgery done, then injectables are highly recommended for you.

Botox, Xeomin, or Dysport eliminates fine lines and wrinkles by temporarily relaxing your muscles beneath the skin to reduce frequent contraction. The less these muscles contract, the smoother, younger-looking the skin looks.

while Botox is used to treat dynamic wrinkles, fillers are used to treat static ones and to enhance the volume of your facial skin. Static wrinkles are those that can be visibly seen at all times, like those on the sides of the mouth.

To see which treatment or product is the best for you, visit your dermatologist for a consultation.
