Which Cosmetic Injectable Is Right for Me?

Which Cosmetic Injectable Is Right for Me?

Are you looking for a quick and easy way to minimize signs of aging and look a little fresher? Cosmetic injectables may be your best bet. Treatment with injectables is fast, convenient and generally well tolerated. (Keep in mind that the results last temporarily.)

With so many products available, it may be difficult to know which product is right for you. Here, the team at Eyesthetica describes the injectables that we offer and the problems that each can correct. Contact our team to schedule an appointment to discuss your options in more detail.

Restylane

Best for: Filling in lower lid hollows, nasolabial folds (lines around the nose and mouth), marionette lines (lines between the corners of the mouth and jawline)

Other uses: Plumping thin lips and other shallow facial contours

Restylane is a gel product designed for moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. It is formulated from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that promotes volume and fullness in the skin. When injected into specific points around the face, Restylane acts as a cushioning agent and also draws water to the area for a hydrated effect. Results with Restylane typically last six to nine months.

Juvederm

Best for: Filling in nasolabial folds, marionette lines, lips, cheeks, and temples

Other uses: Filling in scars or depressions

Juvederm is another popular dermal filler product formulated with hyaluronic acid to improve the appearance of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Juvederm results typically last six to eight months.

Botox

Best for: Smoothing dynamic wrinkles (that result from making repeated facial expressions) around the eyebrows and forehead

Other uses: Relaxing eyelid and facial spasms

Botox is a neuromodulator that functions a little differently than dermal fillers. When injected into certain points of the face, the product paralyzes the muscles that contract and cause wrinkles and lines. It is commonly used to relax wrinkles in the brow region. Results with Botox treatment generally last three to six months.
