Injectables and fillers are the increasingly popular, non-surgical forms of rejuvenation. These types of cosmetic surgery alternatives are prominent forms of cosmetic rejuvenation. Injectables in Tampa and around the world are now more accessible than ever.
What Is a Cosmetic Injectable?
The name says it all. Cosmetic injectables and fillers are compounds that are inserted into the skin in key areas in order to correct undesirable cosmetic concerns. Injectables encompass a large group of cosmetic surgery alternative that are delivered through injections. Not all injectables are created equal and a lot of thought goes into choosing the correct injectable to account for both the specifications of our patients and the correct course of action to take to fulfill those desires.
What Are the Benefits of Injectable Fillers?
- Increased volume and smoothing of wrinkles and creases
- Fuller, symmetrical and more beautiful lips
- Scar removal
- Adding volume and a plump, youthful look to facial features – particularly cheeks
- Forehead Lines – many patients will use injectables to correct acne scars
- Removes deep furrows in the brow
- Correct circles under the eyes known as tear troughs
- Non-surgical nose, cheeks, and jaw line re-contouring
What Are the Different Types of Injectables?
For simplicity, it’s easy to think of fillers as falling into two categories. Fillers are a jelly-like substance that plumps and smooths the skin. BOTOX® Cosmetic, however, is in an injectable category all its own.
 Natural Dermal Fillers – These are often associated with almost instant results. Hyaluronic acid, which makes up a great deal of the natural dermal fillers, is non animal based and so allergic reactions are much less likely to occur.
 Synthetic Dermal Fillers – Synthetics are generally characterized by long term or even permanent results. Although the effects last indefinitely, new wrinkles will appear and so a treatment plan will yield the optimal results.
 BOTOX – BOTOX is not a filler; it is a muscle relaxant. It is still an injectable but it is administered to the forehead and wrinkles around the eyes in order to relax the face and stop muscle movement that causes those wrinkles.
