As more people than ever are seeking to enhance their beauty cosmetically, there is an emphasis on visible improvement without scarring. As a result, many are considering cosmetic injectables in Houston as a non-invasive solution to the visible effects of aging and other facial imperfections.

Age, genetics, and lifestyle choices can cause facial tissues to sag, resulting in wrinkles, thin lips, and cheeks that appear a little hollow. All of these could make you feel a little less confident. A skilled aesthetician uses safe, efficient cosmetic injectables that could restore your youthful appearance, giving you back your confidence. At Deigni Plastic Surgery, we can talk with you about which treatment will work the best for your specific concerns.

What Are Cosmetic Injectables?

Cosmetic injectables are gel-like substances injected beneath the skin to enhance facial contours, restore lost volume, and reduce lines and creases. Nearly a million people a year, including many in the Houston area, choose injectable treatments to rejuvenate their face and enhance their appearance. Injectables are a cost-effective, less invasive solution to reverse the signs of aging and improve other facial imperfections. Results are almost instant and typically require no recovery downtime.

People often refer to injectables as wrinkle fillers but they could do so much more. Dermal fillers and injectables could solve the following cosmetic imperfections:

  • Smile lines, marionette lines, and wrinkles around the mouth and nose
  • Hollow cheeks and temples
  • Vertical lip lines
  • Thin lips
  • Undefined chin crease
  • Poor facial symmetry

Cosmetic injections can be a potential solution to any of these common skin concerns.

Types of Injectables Available in Houston

Injectables come in three main categories: neuromodulators, dermal fillers, and Kybella.

Neuromodulators

Neuromodulators paralyze and weaken facial muscles. The most popular is Botox, but there are alternatives, including:

Neuromodulators are still the most popular injectable, as they are easy to use with pronounced cosmetic effects. Many patients use them to reduce wrinkles on the forehead or around the eyes, but they could also be used to treat frown lines.

Dermal Fillers

You can inject dermal fillers beneath the skin to add volume to facial features like the lips. Non-hyaluronic fillers often last longer; however, many people opt for these hyaluronic acid-based fillers:

  • Restylane
  • Refyne
  • Defyne
  • Juvederm
  • Vollure
  • Volbella
  • Belotero
  • RHA

Kybella

Kybella is a less-common treatment that uses deoxycholic acid to dissolve small amounts of fat. It currently has government approval for use underneath the chin.

The Composition of Dermal Fillers

There are several dermal fillers with different compositions. Discussing your medical history with Dr. Deigni, including any medication you take, will enable him to determine which filler would suit you. Common dermal fillers include:

Collagen

Fillers made with collagen effectively treat deep wrinkles and some scars. The effects last for around four to six months.

Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid is ideal for fine surface wrinkles on the forehead or around the mouth, and the effects could last for a year. Hyaluronan, a hyaluronic acid, is effective for treating acne scars and deep wrinkles. This product is suitable for those allergic to collagen, and its effects could last up to six months.

Polylactic Acid

This treatment works well on deep wrinkles and depressions in the skin. It stimulates the skin to create polyacrylamide collagen, which is good for deep wrinkles. Its effects are long-lasting and the treated skin remains soft.

Fat Injections

An aesthetician can use a fine needle to remove fat tissue from other parts of your body. They then sterilize the fat and inject it into your unwanted creases or lines to eliminates the creases. Effects could last a long time but you may require follow-up injections in some circumstances.

Injectables and dermal fillers could be the best way for individuals in Houston to improve their self-esteem. If you decide that this option is for you, Deigni Plastic Surgery has you covered.
