How to Find the Right Injectable for Your Cosmetic Goals

Cosmetic injectables Beverly Hills

Your face changes with age in numerous ways. The supportive structures in your skin (such as collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid) start to decrease and cause fine lines, deep folds, and volume loss. Cosmetic injectables can counteract these signs of aging by smoothing lines and wrinkles and improving your facial contour. The right injectable for your needs depends on the type and cause of your cosmetic concern. Charles S. Lee, MD, offers several injectables at Enhance® Medical Center and will match you with the right product for your needs. 

Injectables for Dynamic Wrinkles and Static Wrinkles

Lines and wrinkles form in two primary ways: Dynamic wrinkles develop when repeated muscle movements cause the overlying skin to crease. Static wrinkles are superficial wrinkles that develop as the skin loses its youthful texture.

Botox and Dysport are neuromodulator injectables that address dynamic wrinkles. These products use botulinum toxin type A to target and immobilize the muscles responsible for deep forehead furrows, “crow’s feet,” and vertical lines between the eyebrows. Dynamic wrinkles may also form around the nose (bunny lines) and mouth corners.

Static wrinkles respond well to hyaluronic acid fillers, including the Juvéderm product line, Belotero Balance, and Radiesse. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in youthful skin that decreases with age. These dermal fillers use synthetic hyaluronic acid to fill in superficial lines and wrinkles around the nose, mouth, lips, and chin. Radiesse can be used for hand rejuvenation to smooth wrinkles and minimize visible hand veins.

PRP injections using growth factors in your blood can also improve static wrinkles. Radiesse is another type of dermal filler that can smooth moderate to severe wrinkles and folds.

Injectables for Volume Loss and Facial Scarring

There are several injectables that restore lost volume and improve facial scarring. Hyaluronic acid fillers can be effective for depressed scars caused by years of acne or a facial injury. These injectables restore lost volume and provide a youthful facial contour while smoothing lines and wrinkles.

Radiesse offers volume improvement for hollow areas in the lower face as well as wrinkles. The injectable is made with calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) microspheres that plump the skin tissues and stimulate collagen production to replace the microspheres as the body absorbs them.

PRP injections with platelet-rich plasma can improve facial scars, volume loss, and wrinkles. This nutrient-rich part of your blood helps heal the targeted area and pushes the body to send new collagen to the site for facial rejuvenation. PRP facial treatments can improve damaged and aging skin for a healthier, smoother, and younger appearance.

If a double chin is your concern, Kybella can destroy unwanted fat cells with deoxycholic acid for a more defined jawline.
