Why Injectables Should Be Part Of Your Anti-Aging Routine

With A Warm, Caring Staff and Stunningly Natural Results,
Our Approach to Surgery is Anything but Plastic

If you’re wanting to slow down or reverse the signs of aging, you probably already have a skincare routine, know to stay away from the sun, drink plenty of water, and stick to an overall healthy lifestyle. But one thing that may not be part of your routine might be injectables. They are a great solution to slowing the aging process before it starts.

Why are injectables so important to the anti-aging routine? Let’s take a look at what they can do.

Botox Smooths and Prevents Deep Wrinkles

Botox is an FDA-approved neuromodulator that relaxes the muscle to prevent wrinkling on the skin. Botox is great for addressing dynamic, or moving, wrinkles. With regular treatments, the muscles become weaker and weaker over time. This allows less surface wrinkling of the skin, making it a great anti-aging tool because it prevents static wrinkling from forming.

For those who have yet to see signs of wrinkles or signs of aging, Botox is a great option because it will still relax the muscles that can eventually cause wrinkles to form over time. This is why it is best considered as a preventative treatment. Because the muscles are already relaxed, when Patients who start Botox at a younger age can “get ahead of the curve” and prevent early wrinkling from forming and leading to fine lines and wrinkles in the skin. While it can slightly vary patient to patient, many providers recommend patients start Botox treatments in their 20s and 30s.

Dermal Fillers Help Delay Aging

Fillers can help to turn back the clock on your skin. They work to effectively restore volume loss and smooth existing wrinkles. Fillers also boost collagen production, resulting in a more youthful, restored appearance. On top of restoring volume loss, fillers can also be used to help younger patients better balance their facial features and improve asymmetries. Fillers can be used to contour the jawline, add volume to the cheeks, and plump thin or dehydrated-looking lips.

The type of fillers you might find include:

  • Hyaluronic Acid (HA)
  • Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA)
  • Poly-L-lactic Acid
  • Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA)
  • Autologous fat injections

Injectable Treatments Can be Combined with Other Treatments to Help Stop the Aging Clock

While injectables alone can help prevent and address the signs of aging, they tend to work more effectively when they’re combined with other anti-aging treatments.

Whether you’re looking at laser therapy treatments or chemical peels to refresh and renew skin quality, hydrating facials, or other rejuvenating procedures, all of treatments can be combined with injectables to achieve even better results. Together, they work synergistically to boost collagen production and slow the signs of aging. The key to success in addressing facial aging is to take a comprehensive approach.
