Which Injectables are Right for You?
Aging is a fact of life. Everyone has gray hair and wrinkles at some point in his or her life; but some individuals might encounter these signs of aging earlier than others. When those lines start to show your age too quick, injectables can help smooth them back and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
If you research cosmetic surgery in Toronto, you might notice that there are multiple types of injectables. Therefore, to choose the right one, you need to know about the various types and how they work.
Examining the Types of Injectables and How They Work
Injectables all share a similar purpose. They do not reverse the signs of aging; instead, they smooth out wrinkles and creases so that you look younger. An injectable is administered by a surgeon, but it is a non-surgical solution and not permanent.
You can also use these injectables to plump areas where you lose volume, like cheeks and lips.
If injectables sound like the route you want to take, here are the various types and what they do:
- Wrinkle Reducing Injectables – Reduce the signs of fine lines and deep wrinkles using this category of injectables. Botox and injectables with botulinum toxins restrict facial muscle movements. As a result, those deeply etched wrinkle lines smooth out, giving you a youthful, relaxed facial expression. Men and women with noticeable wrinkles can get these injectables for areas where they hold the most tension, such as frown lines.
- Volume Fillers – As you age, you lose volume in your face. Volume injectables are not designed to freeze the muscles. Instead, they use hyaluronic acid to fill in wrinkles and plump the skin. They also keep your skin hydrated, which reduces dry skin. Fillers last anywhere from 6 to 12 months, and are ideal for anyone who wants to increase volume. Ideally, volume injectables should be placed in the lips, under eyes, cheeks, and smile lines.
