Facial Contouring with Injectables
Cosmetic surgery has come a long way from the days of invasive procedures, long recovery periods, and subsequent scarring. New technologies have made cosmetic treatments less invasive and in some instances completely nonsurgical, with patients experiencing shorter recovery periods and minimal discomfort. Dermal fillers and injectable cosmetics are just a few of the nonsurgical cosmetic treatments available that can dramatically transform a persona’s appearance. Facial contouring with injectables offers the ability to undergo a nonsurgical facial contouring procedure without the associated risks of more invasive plastic surgery procedures.
The traditional facelift is an invasive procedure which requires significant downtime. For patients who desire a nonsurgical means of facial rejuvenation, facial contouring with injectables can achieve immediate results that are natural-looking and long-lasting in a comparatively less invasive manner than the traditional facelift.
An Alternative to Surgery
Juvéderm®, Voluma™, Belotero Balance®, and Botox® are all injectable cosmetics that can be used to correct a variety of cosmetic facial concerns, including fine lines and wrinkles and contour irregularities. All of these products provide an effective means of obtaining a radiant, more youthful appearance without the associated risks of surgery. Many patients who’ve searched for nonsurgical facial rejuvenation options in their quest for a more youthful appearance have found their ideal solution for reversing signs of aging in one of the latest cosmetic procedures – facial contouring with injectables.
Facial Contouring with Injectables
Sagging facial skin is perhaps the most obvious signal for a person’s true age. As we get older, collagen and elastin production slows, giving way to droopy facial skin. Collagen and elastin, also known as the “youth proteins”, are responsible for the smooth texture and firm resilience of youthful skin. When these youth proteins begin to decrease, the skin loses its firmness and elasticity, and the lack of support in the connective tissues of the facial skin allows fine lines, wrinkles, and skin folds to form.
FDA-approved dermal fillers and Botox can also smooth out facial folds and wrinkles without completely altering the face, as is done during a traditional facelift.
In addition to being nonsurgical, injectable facelifts provide a variety of benefits, including:
- Dramatic and instant improvement in smile lines around the mouth
- A more youthful and radiant appearance
- Natural-looking rejuvenation of the facial structure
- Specific targeting of facial features for improvement
- A combination of all the above benefits with little to no recovery time
How Facial Contouring with Injectables Works
Injectable facelifts utilize a combination of Botox® and an advanced, second-generation dermal filler to remove fine lines and wrinkles from the face, while providing longer lasting results. At Atlanta Surgical Arts, we primarily use dermal fillers such as Juvéderm®, Voluma™, and Belotero Balance® for their ability to subtly and naturally add volume and firmness to the face. Each product functions differently and serves a specific purpose, but when administered with precision and attention to detail, they can contour and enhance practically any facial feature that needs improvement. We specialize in developing unique combinations of dermal fillers to deliver the desired aesthetic outcome of each patient.
For patients who want to erase fine lines and wrinkles without surgery, facial contouring with injectables is a wonderful option, but it’s not the ideal solution for everyone. Patients who desire a level of facial rejuvenation that’s beyond the capabilities of dermal fillers may be better suited for surgical facial rejuvenation. Dermal fillers are ideal for subtly reversing early signs of aging, and they may fail to provide drastic improvements for patients who exhibit more advanced signs of aging. Depending on how well your face maintains its newly rejuvenated appearance, you may have to undergo maintenance or touch-up treatments to prolong the results of your initial injectable facelift. However, with the appropriate aftercare regimen, you can greatly reduce the interval of time between touch up treatments.
While an injectable facelift isn’t ideal for every patient’s condition and desired outcome, it is nonetheless a breakthrough in cosmetic medicine for transforming the face without surgery. Several patients have found themselves completely shocked upon learning that a growing number of surgeons who once relied exclusively on cosmetic surgery procedures are now incorporating injectable facelifts into their aftercare treatments to enhance the results of surgical procedures. Injectable facelifts also give patients the option and freedom to see how they might look before committing themselves to invasive cosmetic surgical procedures or obtain their desired results without actually going under the knife.
Using Kybella™ as a Complement to Facial Contouring with Injectables
Kybella™ is another injectable cosmetic that contains a specially formulized substance that dissolves body fat. This product was specifically developed to eliminate excess fat from the chin area to reshape and enhance its appearance. Kybella™ dissolves fat cells at the site of injection, making it a fast, surgery-free alternative to liposuction in treating fat deposits around the chin area. When used in conjunction with an injectable facelift, Kybella™ can dramatically improve a person’s facial profile and overall appearance. The injectable facelift is ideal for improving the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and gently restructuring the face, but Kybella™ can streamline the chin and jawline to accentuate and complement the results of the injectable facelift.
