What are Injectables?

At Allure Aesthetics, we know laughter is good medicine, but wreaks havoc on our facial lines! As we age we have many signs of the expressions we use every day. Whether it’s scrunching our eyebrows together, raising them regularly, or those sweet crows feet from a big ole smile! When you can see these lines without even making an expression, it may be time to consider an injectable!

  

There are many different forms and brands of injectables to choose from and they have come a long way over the past three decades. We’re going to talk about two forms today. First, we’ll consider Botulinum Toxin. Better known as Botox. This toxin has been used for many years in the medical field to treat things such as a lazy eye, muscle spams or even an overactive bladder. Don’t let the word toxin scare you.  When given in small doses, it does miraculous things to your face! This type of injectable can treat your forehead lines, your frown lines (between the brows), crows feet, bunny lines, lip lines and more! It takes 2-7 days to start seeing the results, but it lasts up to six months! 

     Not only can Botox relax those wrinkles and lines but it can actually PREVENT them from becoming deeper and more pronounced as you age. How? Simply because it prohibits you from making those facial gestures that caused the wrinkles in the first place. It’s a common misconception to think that if you get Botox you will not be able to make any facial gestures at all, giving you that “frozen face” look. Don’t get me wrong, this does happen, but only when they’ve had “bad work” from someone who doesn’t know what they’re doing. It is of utmost importance that you only go to an experienced, Licensed Professional.  The key is to look naturally beautiful, to look like you, only fresher. An experienced injector will know how much you need and where it’s needed to give you the best results possible. 

We also offer wrinkle release with 

For many individuals, selecting one brand over the other depends on personal preference and cost.

Botox Brand Cosmetics is used when you want to erase those wrinkles, but what if you want to fill in where aging has thinned you out? That’s where another form of injectables comes in to play. 

JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA®XC

JUVÉDERM®  provides a collection of filler that is made up of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring sugar found in the body. There’s VERY little risk of any reaction to this product! Unlike Botox, fillers work INSTANTLY and you’ll notice a difference as soon as you can look in the mirror! This facial filler will plump up your skin to fill in places that have thinned out over time. It can be used to add volume to your cheeks, to soften nasolabial folds, to smooth vertical lip lines and to plump up those lips! An injector will consult with you before ever beginning treatment. Together you can decide what would best suit your face. Bigger isn’t always better.  Some may just need a small amount to fill in where some volume has been lost, others may want to have a fuller pout. An experienced injector will know how to give you the results you are looking for. JUVÉDERM®   products have lidocaine in the syringe to help make the injection less painful. So don’t let the needle scare you! JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA XC®  is one of the best products on the market for the treatment of lip lines and fuller lips!
