According to a 2015 survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, among cosmetic procedures, injectable wrinkle relaxers and injectable fillers had the highest satisfaction rating among consumers. The top three reasons consumers turn to these cosmetic procedures are to:
Botox®, Dysport®, and Xeomin®
These injectables are used to soften the appearance of lines and wrinkles that deepen with expression, including the horizontal lines of the forehead, frown lines between brows, and smile lines on the sides of the eyes (crow’s feet). The injectable relaxes the affected muscle by blocking the nerve's signals that tells the muscle to contract. Each treatment typically lasts three to four months.
Note: Botox is also used for controlling excess sweating (hyperhidrosis) of the underarms and palms.
Juvederm® and Restylane®
These non-surgical facial treatments are designed to slow and hide the effects of aging. These hyaluronic acid fillers are specifically formulated to act like your body's own naturally-produced hyaluronic acid, helping to visibly correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds or laugh lines), the corners of the mouth and marionette lines (the area that extends downward from the corners of the mouth to the jawline). These fillers provide immediate results with minimal to no downtime.
Juvederm Voluma® XC
Over time, the cheeks flatten, and the skin may begin to sag because of a natural loss of volume or what the experts call “age-related midface volume loss.” Juvederm Voluma XC is an FDA-approved hyaluronic acid filler, specifically designed to add volume beneath the skin’s surface to lift and contour the cheek area.
This hyaluronic acid injectable filler completely integrates into the skin tissue. While some fillers are designed to rebuild facial volume and structure, Belotero specifically treats moderate-to-severe etched-in lines and wrinkles such as vertical lip lines above and around the lips. Only Belotero is created using the proprietary Cohesive Polydensified Matrix (CPM) process which produces a smooth, flexible gel that blends into the natural structure of the skin, gently filling stubborn lines and wrinkles.
Sculptra is an FDA-approved injectable product that restores and corrects the signs of facial fat loss by replacing lost volume. Also known as “poly-L-lactic acid,” it is synthetic, and biocompatible (does not harm the body) and biodegradable (able to be broken down by the body), and does not require a skin test.
Sculptra may take several treatments, and results happen slowly over several months. But unlike some injectables that are temporary facial fillers, Sculptra helps restore lost collagen—restoring the structure under the skin—for smoother skin and fuller volume that can last for two or more years.
An injectable treatment that is FDA-approved to reduce the appearance of submental fullness or "double chin," Kybella uses an active ingredient called deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring chemical in the human body that is instrumental in breaking down dietary fats. Once injected into fat below the chin, this active ingredient effectively breaks down unwanted fat cells. Over time, the cells are metabolized and filtered out of the body.
