What are cosmetic injectables?
Sometimes called aesthetic injectables, cosmetic injections refer to a range of products that can be injected into certain areas of the face and body to make temporary enhancements to a person’s appearance. There are a variety of injectable categories and classifications, including:
- Injectable dermal fillers
- Wrinkle-relaxing injections
- Fat-reducing injections
With cosmetic injections, patients can recontour the nose, achieve fuller lips, bring harmony to the face, and more. Additionally, some injectables can be used for certain functional or medical purposes, like reducing the symptoms of hyperhidrosis with BOTOX®.
What’s the difference between fillers vs. BOTOX?
Injectable fillers — like JUVÉDERM® — and injectable wrinkle relaxers — like BOTOX — are among the most commonly used cosmetic injections today, leaving many patients asking which one is right for them. It is important for patients considering BOTOX and fillers to understand that each is designed for a different purpose. Injectable wrinkle relaxers, including BOTOX, DAXXIFY®, and others, are typically used to smooth out dynamic (expressive) lines on the face and neck. When injected into the muscle, wrinkle relaxers temporarily paralyze the muscle, which causes the surface lines associated with certain expressions and muscle movements to relax as well.
Dermal fillers, on the other hand, are used to add volume to certain areas of the face and/or body in order to restore a more youthful look, smooth out deep lines and facial folds, or plump up naturally thin features, like the lips.
