What Are Cosmetic Injectables and How Are They Used?

Cosmetic injectables, one of our most popular procedures, are an extremely versatile treatment able to solve different problem areas. But what exactly is meant by cosmetic injectables, and how can they benefit you?

What Are Cosmetic Injectables?

Cosmetic injectables is an umbrella term referring to a couple of different needle-based treatments. One of the more common injectables that you are most likely to be familiar with is botox, which is used to stop muscle contractions.

Dermal fillers are also increasingly popular and work by plumping the targeted area. There are different brands and types of dermal fillers, and they can be used in different ways depending on the desired result. Dermal fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the body. This is what gives these injectables their hydrating and volumising properties.

How Are Cosmetic Injectables Used?

Injectables are most commonly used in the face as tiny amounts can be applied. Thanks to its muscle-relaxing properties, botox has been used to treat several conditions, including migraines and excessive sweating.

Cosmetically, botox and dermal fillers are used to make small enhancements to the face and other areas. Some of the most common uses for cosmetic injectables are as below.

Combatting the Signs of Ageing

Most people associate injectables with anti-ageing, and certainly, both botox and dermal fillers can be used in this way. Botox is used to prevent muscle contraction, stopping actions like a scowl and furrowed brow that result in wrinkles. Botox is, therefore, a preventative measure against ageing.

Dermal fillers can be used to address the existing signs of ageing, filling out lines to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. This is a popular treatment of crow’s feet and smile lines and restores volume under the skin’s surface. By plumping out sunken areas of the face, derma fillers can give you a more youthful appearance.

Shaping Your Features with Injectables

Dermal fillers are most commonly used as an augmentation divide to enhance or alter features on the face. Lip enhancements using these kinds of cosmetic injectables are extremely popular to give a plumper lip. Dermal fillers can also be used to balance irregularities, for example, to even out a bump in the nose.

Injections for Facial Sculpting

Our dermal fillers also provide an opportunity to make changes to the overall appearance of the face. Injecting a small amount of filler can address asymmetry in the face, for example, the jawline or cheek area. They can also be used to alter the shape, be it rounding the jawline or reshaping the chin.

These kinds of cosmetic changes are highly customisable and can give significant results with just a few tweaks. Our expert team will establish exactly the result you hope to achieve and make recommendations for how we can use derma fillers to make those adjustments.

The Benefits of Cosmetic Injectables

Cosmetic injectables are increasingly popular because they are non-invasive treatments that yield significant results. Few other treatments can provide such noticeable change with virtually no downtime after the procedure.

They are one of the most effective yet affordable cosmetic solutions, and as a treatment, are hugely versatile. Dermal fillers are also reversible, so if the results aren’t to your liking, you can undo the adjustments made. Both botox and derma fillers are very low risk, and a combination of injections can make for a highly customisable treatment.
