Injectables have revolutionized what’s possible in the world of aesthetics, making treating many of the most common concerns less invasive and more affordable than ever. While many people know BOTOX® and fillers can smooth away lines and wrinkles, there’s much more these innovative injectables can do for your appearance.
And with video calls and selfies now fixtures in society, men and women from all age groups are noticing their outward appearance more and seeking nonsurgical treatment options. In this post, we’ll describe how to treat dark undereye circles, jowls, and more with neuromodulators and dermal fillers.
How To Get Rid of Dark Undereye Circles
Dark undereye circles are typically caused by hollowness under the eyes in the tear troughs. A lack of volume in this area leads to shadows and can make you appear tired or worn out even when you’re completely rested.
Dark circles under the eyes may be an inherited trait or associated with aging. Whatever the cause, injectable fillers such as JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC add volume to this area to create a smoother transition between the upper cheek and lower eyelid, reducing shadows. Treatments take only a few minutes, there is no downtime, and the results can last up to 18 months.
How To Get Rid of Jowls
Jowls develop when the skin, fat, and muscles of the lower face gradually begin to sag, transforming a V-shaped lower face into more of a square shape. While a facelift used to be the only solution for women and men who wanted to minimize jowling, today we can treat mild to moderate jowls with fillers.
Treatments often involve filling the areas around the jowls to smooth out the skin or filling the cheeks and midface to lift the skin from above, creating a smoother, tauter appearance.
How To Create a Slimmer Jawline
An angular, well-defined jawline is a facial feature that’s considered attractive by both men and women. Some people who have overdeveloped masseter muscles in the upper jaw—the muscles used to chew—want to narrow their square-shaped jawlines. BOTOX injections are the injectable solution. Just as BOTOX minimizes crow’s feet, worry lines, and other wrinkles around the eyes by immobilizing specific muscles, it slims the jawline by relaxing the masseter muscle.
How To Minimize Acne Scars
Acne scars and depressions create an uneven skin texture and can make you feel self-conscious. Dermal filler injections effectively minimize their appearance by filling in the depressions. JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA XC is a smooth injectable gel that treats depressed acne scars, with results lasting up to a year. RADIESSE®, formulated with calcium hydroxylapatite, is another filler that effectively treats acne scars.
These are just a few of the conditions we can treat using injectables. (We wrote about lip injections in an earlier blog post.)
