Which Injectable Treatment is Right for You?
Injectable cosmetic treatments are all the rage today, with a wide range of formulas to choose from. Whether you are in search of a neuromodulator to relax away facial wrinkles or a soft tissue filler to smooth skin from the inside out, there is an injectable treatment perfect for you. How do you know which one to choose? That depends in part on the specific wrinkles you want to treat and the results you hope to achieve.
Neuromodulators are injectable treatments that contain the active ingredient botulinum type A, which relaxes facial muscles that lead to the formation of some types of facial wrinkles. The treatment is designed for “dynamic” wrinkles that are formed during certain facial expressions. These might include:
- Horizontal creases across the forehead
- Vertical lines that appear between the eyebrows
- Fine lines that form in the outer corners of the eyes
Dr. Madnani offers a variety of neuromodulator treatments at his New York office, including Botox, Dysport and Xeomin. Providing a choice ensures patients will be able to find a formula that works effectively for them nearly 100 percent of the time.
Soft Tissue Fillers
Soft tissue fillers work differently than neuromodulators. Instead of focusing on facial muscles, these injectable treatments restore volume and support to the underlying skin structure, smoothing away wrinkles from the inside out. Soft tissue fillers are typically recommended for “static” wrinkles that are visible all the time. These might include:
- Deep creases running from the nose to the corners of the mouth
- Lines extending from the mouth to the jawline
- Wrinkles that run around the corners of the mouth
- Vertical lines extending from the upper lip
In addition, some soft tissue fillers can be used to restore volume to areas like the cheeks and jawline for a more youthful facial profile. These injectable treatments may also be recommended to plump up lips that have lost shape and definition through the aging process. To ensure he has a soft tissue filler to meet nearly every patient need, Dr. Madnani offers Juvederm, Belotero, Radiesse and Juvederm Voluma.
No matter which injectable treatment you choose, proper placement of the injection will make all the difference in the success of the treatment. It is important to choose a plastic surgeon that is experienced in a wide range of injectable treatments, like Dr. Madnani, to ensure the best possible results from your procedure.
