Injectables, including the well-known Botox, have been the most popular non-cosmetic surgical procedure in the United States for several years. They offer impressive results with little to no downtime.
Injectables Such as Botox Take Lines, Wrinkles and Years off the Face
While there may be no true fountain of youth, if you are seeking to both look and feel a little younger in just a few minutes, injectables such as Botox might be the perfect cosmetic procedure for you.
In 2009 alone, almost 3 million Botox procedures were performed in the United States – the most popular overall non-surgical cosmetic procedure and the top service for both women and men, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS). Rounding out the top five list of the most common non-surgical cosmetic procedures were laser hair removal, hyaluronic acid injections, microdermabrasion and laser skin resurfacing.
Botox is much less expensive than a face lift, only takes about 15 minutes, requires little if any downtime post-procedure and can last four months and sometimes even longer. Just three treatments a year can make an incredible difference in a person’s appearance.
Injectables are popular services for both men and women getting ready for a wedding, reunion or other important gathering as well as those simply looking to take a few years and worry lines off of their face. In addition, injectable treatments are safe and can be performed in the office of a professional cosmetic surgeon.
Injectable treatments can reduce everything from wrinkles to frown lines to crow’s feet on all areas of the face, and are often used in combination with fillers. Further, injectables can also be provided along with surgical procedures, including eyelid surgery or a brow lift, for example. It all depends on the individual’s specific needs.
Other common injectables include Dysport, hyaluronic acid injections, Sculptra, collagen injections, fat injections or transfers, and more, which can also be used depending on your overall goals and needs.
If you have been thinking about an injectable procedure, you should schedule a free consultation with a board-certified cosmetic surgeon who has a wealth of experience performing injectable services. You can ask the cosmetic surgeon questions about costs, benefits, risks and anything else you might be curious about; it is always a good idea to view before-and-after photos from previous clients as well. Good candidates for injectable procedures are generally men and women ages 18 to 65 who have reasonable expectations about this or any other cosmetic procedure.
An injectable service is one of the fastest ways to change your face and complexion, to smooth wrinkles and create the beautiful skin of your dreams. Botox and other injectables truly provide the opportunity to turn back time.
Be sure to consult a board certified plastic surgeon like Dallas Plastic Surgeon – Dr. Hobar of the Dallas Plastic Surgery Institute.
