The Difference Between Facial Injectables
If you’ve looked in the mirror lately and have been startled to see a face with thinner lips and a few wrinkles, you’re not alone. Millions of other men and women are going through the same thing, and many of them have found a solution in facial injectables. Board-certified plastic surgeon Humberto Palladino uses facial injectables and fillers to fill in lines, wrinkles, and volume loss, effectively rejuvenating the face to impede the aging process. Each facial injectable has a unique purpose and can enhance the face in a distinct way so that each patient can receive a completely customized treatment. Here are some of the treatments that Dr. Palladino recommends for patients like you. Each of these facial injectables is FDA approved, requires no surgery and little to no downtime, and has been shown to elicit satisfying results in patients of nearly all ages.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is one of the most popular methods for improving the appearance of lines and wrinkles, particularly around the eyes, brows, and forehead. Experts have been using this tried-and-true method for cosmetic enhancement since 1997 with excellent results for millions of patients. When injected into specific facial muscles, BOTOX® Cosmetic temporarily paralyzes the muscles to prevent them from contracting and creating facial lines. Dr. Palladino injects small amounts of BOTOX® Cosmetic into the forehead, brow line, laugh lines, crow’s feet, or around the eyes to minimize the appearance of wrinkles. The results do not last forever but provide long-lasting solutions that can be touched up with a return treatment.
JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC
JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC is a facial filler that Dr. Palladino uses to treat marionette lines or laugh lines around the mouth, nose, or eyes. It’s a thin filler that can provide subtle yet profound results for those who need only a little “plumping.” The results can last a year or longer and can easily be re-touched after that point.
JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC
The next step up from JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC, JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC is just a little thicker and more concentrated to provide more dramatic results. That is why Dr. Palladino recommends JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC for patients who have more persistent facial lines or wrinkles. The treatment is slightly more expensive than JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC, but the results last longer and are even more profound.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC
For patients who are looking to correct areas of volume loss, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is an excellent choice. This facial filler was designed to add volume to the cheeks and areas around the mouth. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is the longest lasting of any dermal filler, and it can significantly minimize the appearance of aging in the face.
