Cosmetic injections can help you address aesthetic features that you'd like to change. Injections are less invasive than many other cosmetic procedures, and most are temporary or reversible, which means you can try them without fear. Here are some of the effects that you can achieve with cosmetic injections:
1. Elevated Brows
Your eyebrows are the most expressive part of your face. Their position can help communicate your emotional state to others. Some people's brows are naturally lower due to the distribution of fat around their eyes. Lowered brows and hooded eyes can make you look like you're scowling. In severe cases, they can even impede your vision. Fortunately, cosmetic injections can be used to elevate your brows without the need for a surgical brow lift. Botox injections can soften the muscles below your eyebrows, allowing the muscles above your eyebrows to provide a natural lift.
2. Smooth, Taut Skin
Smooth, firm skin is a sign of youth. Fortunately, you can keep your skin smooth and taut, even as you age. Botox can be used to prevent creases formed by expression lines. People with deeper wrinkles can make use of dermal fillers. Your dentist can inject dermal fillers anywhere you are experiencing a loss of facial volume, such as the folds of wrinkles or the hollows beneath your eyes. Increased facial volume can help you look more youthful and radiant at any age.
3. Trim Jawline
A slender, trim jawline is an attractive feature for both men and women. Unfortunately, many people develop jowls as they age, as a result of fat gain and their skin losing elasticity. Deoxycholic acid can be injected into areas of unwanted fat in order to remove it. When injected into jowls, deoxycholic acid breaks down fat cells so the body can metabolize them. Over a period of several weeks, patients who receive this type of injection will notice their jawline becoming trimmer. If further jaw slimming is desired, Botox injections can be used to shrink the masseter muscles, as well.
4. Refined Nose
Many people feel self-conscious about their noses, but they may not be willing to commit to a full rhinoplasty. Fortunately, dermal fillers can be used to refine your nose in a number of ways. Dermal fillers can be injected into the bridge of your nose to create a longer, more elegant side profile. Dermal fillers can also be injected into the tip of your nose to give your nose a cuter, more refined look.
