Some of the most commonly recognized cosmetic treatments are injectables. The term injectables refers to various solutions that are injected under the skin’s surface to provide a rejuvenated look. There are several types of injectables; the most common are BOTOX and JUVÉDERM.
BOTOX stands for botulinum toxin and is the most popular treatment for reducing wrinkles in a safe and effective procedure. Medical practitioners inject this purified protein toxin into problem areas, causing the facial muscles to relax. The procedure takes only minutes, but the effects of BOTOX typically last around three or four months.
JUVÉDERM is a dermal filler that can minimize deep facial wrinkles, creating a softer and more youthful appearance. It’s composed of a high concentration of hyaluronic acid (HA), a natural substance that occurs in the body and attracts moisture. JUVÉDERM is typically used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth (smile lines), revealing immediate results, effectively lasting up to six months before requiring another injection.
JUVÉDERM has several products available — including Ultra, Vollure, Voluma, Volbella — each of which is intended to treat a specific area, line, or wrinkle depth, and all of which last between 6 and 12 months, depending on the exact formula.
