Though aging is a natural process that everybody goes through, it’s never too late to soften fine lines and wrinkles to restore the youthful energy you once had back into your face. Thanks to today’s advanced technologies, we are excited to offer our patients the best injectables in Vancouver to help them achieve their beauty goals.
Injectable treatments and results are highly dependent on the individual injector - their expertise, technique, and aesthetic.
What Are Injectables?
Injectables are a variety of products used to relax facial wrinkles, folds, and fine lines on the face. In addition, injectables can also be used to contour the body and face, creating a sharper, more structured face shape and profile. Injectables can also be used to restore or add volume to areas of the face such as the cheeks, lips, or jaw area.
Depending on your facial aesthetic goals, injectables can be applied almost anywhere on the face or body to target loss of volume, wrinkles, and signs of aging. The use of injectables is one of the most common anti-aging skin treatments in the country, and it can help patients feel younger, look more radiant, and be more confident in their skin.
What Do Injectables Treat?
Injectables can be used to restore or add volume, and contour areas of the face and body. The most common areas injectables are applied to are:
- Lower Face
What Are the Different Types of Injectables?
At CüR Laser and Skin, we are excited to offer our patients the following types of injectable treatments:
- Neuromodulator: This type of injectable is one of the most popular types used to reduce signs of aging on the face. These injectables target muscles in the face, promoting muscle relaxation of the skin to soften wrinkles and prevent them. Results from neuromodulators often result in a smoother, supple appearance, contributing to a more youthful look. Treatments usually take effect in a few days and typically last about 3 months.
- BOTOXⓇ & DYSPORT®: Botox & Dysport are two brands of Neuromodulator injectables that target muscle movement to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the face, but can also be used to treat neck spasms, sweating, lazy eye, and more. These injections are one of the most popular anti-aging treatments.
- Dermal fillers: Fillers are made of a softer substance, typically hyaluronic acid (HA), injected into the skin and are used most commonly to add volume to areas of the face that appear sunken in or lacking proportion. Many patients use this kind of filler to even out, plump up, or add volume to their lips. Effects are seen immediately and most clients occasionally return over months and years to gradually build or maintain, depending on their goals.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Injectables?
The ideal candidates for injectables are patients who don’t smoke and are in overall good health. While we are committed to helping you reach your aesthetic goals, it’s also important to have realistic expectations regarding the results of your injectables.
What Are the Risks With Injectables?
Though injectables are FDA and Health Canada-approved for specific uses, these types of procedures can still come with risks and side effects. Some of these risks include skin folds, bruising, swelling, pain, migration of filler in the face, tenderness, lumpiness, slight pain at the injection site, vascular compromise, and infection.
However, with the right kind of care and guidance from our team, these risks can be avoided and most post-treatment side effects can wear off on patients in a couple of days.
What Are the Benefits of Injectables?
Injectables not only bring back a vibrant, more youthful look to the face but they can also restore self-confidence in many patients. Injectables in the face can result in less tired-looking eyes, plumper lips, more youthful cheeks, a stronger jawline, more defined cheekbones, and an increased production of collagen in the skin. To achieve a more youthful look, patients often feel their best after their injectable treatment.
