Surprising Uses for Injectable Treatments

Injectable treatments have become the go-to anti-aging option for many men and women today.

In addition to smoothing away fine lines and wrinkles, these formulations have found their way

into other treatments, offering benefits not often associated with Botox and dermal fillers. At

Madnani Facial Plastics, we have some surprising uses for injectable treatments you may not

have heard of.

Jaw Shaping

Your jawline often sets the tone for the rest of your facial profile. If the jaw is weak or

asymmetrical, it can throw off the rest of the facial features as well. Today, jaw reshaping can be

performed without surgery, using injectable fillers to add volume, create a new contour and

restore a youthful profile to the lower face. In addition to dermal fillers, neuromodulators like

Botox can be used to relax the muscles of the lower jaw and add definition to the contour of the

lower face.

Volume Restoration

The aging process does more than produce fine lines and wrinkles in the skin. Loss of collagen in

the underlying skin structure over time leads to hollowing and volume loss in key areas like

under the eyes, around the cheeks and along the jawline. Dermal fillers like Voluma can restore

that facial volume, creating a more youthful appearance overall. Voluma is the only dermal filler

specifically approved by the FDA for restoring volume to different areas of the face, with results

that last up to two years.

Forehead Lift

In the past, forehead lifts involved a surgical procedure, anesthesia and a recovery period after to

restore the position and the appearance of the forehead. Today, mild to moderate signs of aging

in the upper face can be effectively addressed with a non-surgical facelift using injections of

Botox or another neuromodulator. When strategically placed in areas of the forehead, Botox can

successfully raise the lateral brow, minimizing “hooding” above the eyes and giving the eyes a

refreshed, awake appearance.

Eye Rejuvenation

The eyes are often one of the first facial features to show the signs of age, from hollowing and

dark circles under the eye to fine lines in the outer corners of the eye, known as crow’s feet.

While eyelid surgery can address many of these concerns, newer formulations of dermal fillers,

as well as tried-and-true neuromodulators, can also have a profound effect on signs of aging

around the eyes without incisions, anesthesia or downtime.

Dr. Madnani often uses Belotero, a relatively new dermal filler with a softer, smoother texture

that lends itself well to the delicate skin around the eye. This injectable can be placed under the

eyes to eliminate hollows around the tear trough and restore youthful volume. At the same time,

Botox injections can be placed in the outer corners of the eyes to relax those fine lines and create

a smoother, more youthful appearance.

Sweat Treatment

A final treatment offered by neuromodulators like Botox is not injected to the face at all, but

instead can be administered to the underarm area. This procedure effectively treats a medical

condition known as hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating. The Botox medication is used to block

the production of the chemical in the body that “turns on” the sweat glands, leading to

significantly less sweating in the armpits. The procedure has been shown to be up to 87 percent

effective in reducing sweat, leading to drier days and less embarrassment for patients.

Injectable treatments have proven their worth in both the cosmetic and medical arenas, offers a

multitude of benefits. To learn more about these procedures, contact Madnani Facial Plastics at
