Perhaps you’ve noticed a few more wrinkles than you used to have, and you want to do something about it, but you’re not ready for surgery. Injectables are a minimally invasive, nonsurgical way to reduce wrinkles and give your face a more toned and youthful appearance. If you are looking for a way to fight wrinkles, an injectable from Amara Medical Aesthetics may be the answer!
What are injectables?
There are three main categories of injectables: neuromuscular toxins, tissue fillers, and skin enhancers.
Neuromuscular toxins, such as Botox, contain botulinum toxin type A. It sounds a bit dangerous, but it is safe to use in cosmetic procedures. It works by paralyzing the muscle that is causing the wrinkles, and it is used for frown lines, lines in between the eyes, and for crow’s feet.
Soft tissue fillers, which are made up of ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and collagen, help to replace lost volume to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Juvederm, Radiesse, and Sculptra are tissue fillers that help to add volume while helping the skin to retain moisture and stay soft.
Skin enhancers are made up of multivitamins, hyaluronic acid, and antioxidants. They work by improving skin tone and stimulating collagen production.
What is the procedure for getting an injectable?
Getting an injectable is a quick process. The skin is cleaned and disinfected, and the doctor or injector may give you a local anesthetic if you request one. The skin is marked so that the injectables are strategically placed for best results. The injection is given, and the skin is cleaned again.
What are the benefits of injectables?
Perhaps the greatest benefit is that injectables rate very highly in patient satisfaction, yet it is a quick procedure that can be done in-office, is minimally invasive, and has very little down-time. The results are also long-lasting.
