Plastic Surgeon Discusses Top Benefits of Injectable Treatments 

Injectable skin treatments have become increasingly popular in the last two decades among women and men. One of the most well-known injectable treatments is Botox®. Other brand-name treatments include KYBELLATM, Juvéderm®, CosmoplastTM, and Sculptura® among others. Their ability to get rid of lines and wrinkles as well as adding volume to the face, makes injectable treatments an extremely versatile, safe, and effective way to combat the signs of aging.

Are you considering joining the millions of Americans who have successfully used dermal fillers to improve their appearance? Below are some of the major benefits of using injectable treatments.

  1. Safer than Surgery

Although experiencing a major complication with facial surgery is rare, any surgical procedure comes with certain risks, such as bleeding, blood clots, and adverse reactions to anesthesia. Injectable treatments require no knives, and no anesthesia, so those surgical risks are completely eliminated.

  1. Reduced Recovery Time

Surgical cosmetic procedures like facelifts involve weeks of recovery time, which can really impact your life. Injectable treatments require no recovery time and you can usually return to work and regular activities the very next day.

  1. Few Side Effects

The side effects associated with injectable treatments typically include swelling, tenderness, and mild bruising around the injection site. These side effects are usually mild, subside quickly, and can be concealed with makeup in most cases. Some patients report getting a slight headache after treatment. It’s perfectly safe to take an over-the-counter pain reliever to alleviate any discomfort.

  1. Convenience

Dermal filler treatments are same-day, outpatient procedures that take 20 to 30 minutes to administer. You can show up, have your treatment, and be on your way, which makes the whole procedure very convenient, especially for busy people. Keep in mind that we do advise against scheduling your treatment on the same day that you have other appointments or obligations.

  1. Cost

The cost of dermal fillers varies depending on the brand used and amount of filler needed, but is generally between $1,500 to $2,500, which is a fraction of the cost of facelifts, necklifts, and other cosmetic surgeries.

  1. Targeted Results

Injectable treatments are great for targeting very specific areas of the face. If you simply want to reduce forehead wrinkles, but not touch any other parts of your face, you can. Or, you can plump up your lips and reduce chin fat on the same day. You have greater control over what parts of your face are, and are not, treated.

  1. Subtle Changes

Depending on the patients’ goals, a facelift, necklift, or other cosmetic surgery can result in significant changes in appearance. But sometimes, patients prefer not to look dramatically different. They just want a youthful, more alert look. Injectable treatments are perfect for enhancing your looks without significantly altering your appearance.

Please note that you should postpone your dermal filler treatment if you have inflamed or infected skin, acne, cysts, rashes, or hives, until the condition subsides. And injectable skin treatments should be completely avoided if you have a bleeding disorder, are prone to excessive scarring, or a have a history of severe allergies.
