What are injectables and fillers?

The visible signs of aging affect us all eventually. Injectables and fillers can address a few of the primary causes for visible aging on our face, neck and other areas. As we age it’s common for facial tissue to thin slightly, causing visible wrinkles around the nose and mouth. Cheeks, lips and the area under the eye can look slightly hollow, and less plump and supple as we age. This is why so many people are turning to both injectables and fillers to reverse the signs of aging and to restore their youthful appearance.

There are two main categories of injectables and fillers that are often used in combination to reverse the signs of aging. The first consists of neuromodulators. These are used to weaken or even temporarily paralyze muscles in the face or neck. The most common product in this category is Botox, but other options include Xeomin, Dysport, and the newest to the market, Jeuveau, also called NEWTOX. Neuromodulators are most commonly used to smooth wrinkles on the forehead and around Board certified plastic surgeon Dr Alan N Larsen at Buckhead Plastic Surgerythe eyes. There are even non-cosmetic uses for neuromodulators such as migraine relief and jaw clenching.

The second category is dermal fillers. This is an injectable product that sits under the skin, with the purpose of providing volume to multiple areas around the face like under the eyes or the lips. The most common products used are based on hyaluronic acid (a common ingredient you might notice in hydrating serums).

Despite the growing sensation of injections, these services aren’t new to the beauty scene and have actually been practiced safely for several years, with an estimated 11 million people worldwide who have received injectables. Social media platforms are bringing light to these injections and showing the ways they can transform a patient’s appearance. Patients love these services because they are quick, relatively pain-free and you see the results almost immediately.
