Injectables include a broad range of substances which are administered by injection. Their main usage is for the treatment of lines, wrinkles and folds, as well as hollowing and volume loss. Three of the most common injectables are described below. Selection and results depend on age, category, and on the substance being injected. Neurotoxins Botulinum toxin is used to weaken muscles and minimize dynamic lines. It is injected directly into the muscle. Only lines caused by muscle contractions will be affected by botulinum toxin injections. The most common locations for treatment are in the upper third of the face – on the frown line, crows’ feet, and on the forehead lines. Traditional Fillers These are soft substances, liquids or gels, which can be injected into the skin to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, plump lips, fill out cheek hollows, and repair other facial imperfections. They work by filling out the space below the wrinkles, replacing lost fat. They can be injected into the dermis or subcutaneous layer if the skin, depending on the filler and treatment goal. Collagen Stimulators As you age it is important to replace the collagen your body loses. Collagen stimulators are injected into the dermis or subcutaneous layer, filling the spaces where collagen has been lost. The newly-produced collagen provides provides a structural framework to hold hyaluronic acid and elastin and helps restore the dermis. Hyaluronic acid attracts water molecules to the dermis and restores skin moisture. Elastin provides elasticity and helps the skin stretch.
