All about injectables
You’ll want to familiarize yourself with the various types of injectables before you decide which one is suitable for your particular needs.
Dermal fillers are ideal if you have started to notice a loss in facial volume, which has led to sagging skin and the development of fine lines or wrinkles. The dermal fillers can effectively restore a more youthful appearance to your face.
Wrinkle relaxers not only smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles but also help prevent new ones from developing by relaxing the facial muscles to minimize repetitive movements, such as frowning or scowling.
BOTOX is an injectable wrinkle relaxer that smoothes fine lines and wrinkles, especially those on the forehead. It also helps prevent new lines from forming.
KYBELLA is an injectable that reduces the appearance of fat in your neck and under your chin to reduce or remove a double chin. The injectable hones your jawline while giving you a slimmer appearance.
Sculptra is an injectable that gives you a quick, nonsurgical butt lift. It restores lost volume in your butt that can occur as a result of dramatic weight loss. The injectable effectively reshapes your butt for a more pleasing, round appearance.
How long does it take to notice the difference from injectables?
Many people believe that you should instantly notice a difference with injectables, but they do take time to start smoothing your skin. Ideally, you should undergo cosmetic injectables at least two weeks before you want to gain the full benefits of the procedure.
Following the administration of injectables, especially dermal fillers, it is common to notice slight swelling or bruising, which can take one to two weeks to resolve.
After administration of injectables, you should refrain from touching or rubbing your face, or you could disperse the solution beneath your skin’s surface. Also, you should avoid exercising, straining, or excessive movements for at least 24 hours following the treatment.
