3 Reasons why cosmetic injectables are better than plastic surgery

Plastic surgery is not the only solution to looking younger. Popularized by celebrities such as Kardashian and Jenner, cosmetic injections gained a lot of popularity between 2000 and 2015. During this time, demands for injections, such as Botox and fillers, have increased by 759 percent. However, despite its growing popularity, a lot of questions on injectables and their existing treatment options remain a mystery.

Injectables are nonsurgical cosmetic alternative procedures. Let’s explore injectables as a treatment option.


Wrinkles are directly addressed by Botox & Dysport injection

Botox has been known to treat fine lines and wrinkles, particularly, frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines. Botox is injected into areas of concern, which temporarily block nerves and muscle activity. Muscle contraction is reduced and resulting, relax the skin and no wrinkling. If you wish to remain wrinkle-free, Botox treatments need to be repeated every 3 to 6 months.


Volumize and bring plumpness to sunken areas on the face

Hyaluronic acid injection (Captique, Esthélis, Elevess, Hylaform, Juvederm, Perlane, Prevelle, Puragen, Restylane) can increase the skin’s volume, which contributes to a youthful appearance. Hyaluronic acid is a substance present in our bodies such as skin tissue, cartilage, joint, and eye fluid. As we age, the levels of hyaluronic acid lower and cause dry, thin skin and wrinkles. A semi-natural substance, Hyaluronic acid injections are accepted by the human body as its own, and slowly absorbed as its own. Results in treatment need to be repeated to regain volumes and plumpness.  The treatment lasts approximately 3 to 6 months.


Simple treatment and convenient recovery

Injectables can be performed in a doctor’s office under local anesthesia. In general, the time allocated for the procedure is from 15 minutes to an hour.  A quick drop-in for treatment during a lunch hour break at work is realistic and obtainable. The recovery time for injectables is fast and usually goes unnoticed by friends and co-workers.  The non-surgical procedure’s results will make you look youthful and well-rested. injectables are lower cost than surgery and produce an incredible return on investment.

Injectables are not substitutes for cosmetic surgery. However, injectables are an excellent alternative that produces impressive anti-aging enhancements with lower risk and cost. It’s no wonder that botox and fillers have gain popularity!
