The two main types of injections are dermal fillers and neurotoxins. Botox® is a popular neurotoxin, whereas Juvederm® is an example of a dermal filler. We’ll talk you through how each works and what they are suitable for.
Botox® and Dysport®
Firstly, we have neurotoxins, like Botox® and Dysport®, which are injected into the skin so that the muscles that cause fine lines and wrinkles to form will relax.
The results from neurotoxin injections tend to last between three and four months. They don’t only enhance appearance but can also be used to treat medical issues such as lazy eye and excessive sweating.
Juvederm® and Radiesse®
Next, we have dermal fillers, which include Juvederm® and Radiesse®. Dermal fillers work by plumping up the area of the skin that is experiencing volume loss.
Dermal fillers will fill in the lines or static hollowness present all of the time, i.e., even when those facial muscles are not being used. They boast a gel-like consistency, which consists of hyaluronic acid – a substance that occurs in the body naturally.
Dermal fillers can be used to:
Add volume to your face to fill in fine lines and wrinkles
If you’re unsure whether you should opt for neurotoxins or dermal fillers, why not go for a combination of both? That’s what a liquid facelift provides, delivering a combination of both treatments.
A liquid facelift is customized to the needs of every patient. Some different injectables can be used during this treatment, including the following:
Botox® to reduce the appearance of forehead lines and wrinkles
JUVEDERM® Vollure/JUVEDERM/JUVEDERM® Volbella to augment the lips
JUVEDERM® Vollure/JUVEDERM/JUVEDERM® Volbella to soften lines around the nose and mouth
JUVEDERM® Vollure/JUVEDERM to correct volume loss in the mid-facial region
JUVEDERM® Voluma/Radiesse® for structural support and contouring
Whether this is right for you, though, depends on your individual needs, which you can discuss during your consultation at Juvanew.
Am I a Candidate for Injectables?
A good candidate for injectables includes those who are looking to get rid of unwanted wrinkles or lines to enhance their appearance. It is also vital that patients are in good health, do not have a neuromuscular disorder, and are not nursing or pregnant.
We make sure that all men and women considering these treatments have realistic expectations. This is something we will discuss with you during your consultation to ensure your goals are attainable.
“Amanda and Terry are super skilled at all of their services. I have been so impressed with how well they do injections and highly recommend them. They are up to speed on the latest treatments and excellent at tailoring a treatment specifically for you. The customer service is amazing. Lynda is fantastic and is super helpful with any questions that you might have and is a true asset to Juvanew. I have used many other services in NY and living out of country and it can be difficult to find someone that you can trust to be honest and make sure that you don’t have that overdone look. I am very particular about the placement of Botox and finally have found someone in TX that knows what they are doing. Juvanew is 5 stars plus!” *
