Cosmetic Injections - Botox®, Juvederm®, & More
Cosmetic injections, sometimes called cosmetic fillers, are dermatological treatments for aging skin.
Cosmetic injections are used by dermatologists to help patients achieve a more youthful appearance. As skin ages, it begins to show signs of aging like wrinkles and sagging.
Cosmetic injections plump up the skin so wrinkles disappear and sagging diminishes or becomes less noticeable. These injections do not lead to permanent results but repeat treatments are safe. This way, anyone can achieve the more youthful appearance that they desire.
What are Cosmetic Injections Used For?
The primary purpose of cosmetic injections is to enhance the appearance of older skin. For this reason, cosmetic injections are most often done on the face; however, they can also be done on other areas of the body, including the hands. In fact, Botox is a cosmetic injection that is also used to combat excessively sweaty palms.
Most often, though, cosmetic injections are used to:
- Soften facial creases
- Erase fine lines and wrinkles
- Plump up thinning skin
- Improve the appearance of facial scars
- Plump lips
- Enhance facial contours
Types of Cosmetic Injections
Cosmetic injections are frequently referred to by their brand name. For instance, many of the types of cosmetic injections listed here are actually brand names that contain very similar ingredients. They include:
Cosmetic injections are FDA-approved and considered safe for most individuals; however, certain side effects may occur with some cosmetic injection formulations.
If you have side effects with one type of cosmetic injection, it doesn’t mean you and your dermatologist can’t use another type of cosmetic injection. Talk to your dermatologist at Dermatology Associates of Uptown to determine if one type of filler may be more suitable for your needs than another.
