There’s a lot of talk about quick “lunchtime procedures” that men and women can fit into their work break. When it comes to creating big results in little time, injectable treatments are at the top of the list. These injectables, including dermal fillers and BOTOX®, are popular med spa treatments among our patients from Pocatello, ID, and beyond. A single 30-minute treatment session can leave your skin smooth and beautiful, making injectables a go-to treatment for cosmetic beginners and veterans alike.
What Are Injectables?
Injectables are cosmetic treatments that deliver a product to your skin through a fine needle. Two of the most popular kinds of injectable treatments include BOTOX and fillers, such as JUVEDÉRM®. BOTOX specializes in smoothing out wrinkles and fine lines, while fillers add youthful volume to the face. Depending on the type and amount of product used, results can last between 4 months to a few years.
There is no downtime required after injectable treatments, so they’re a favorite for busy men and women. Many patients use BOTOX and fillers together to rejuvenate multiple areas of the face and create comprehensive results.
Preventive Injectable Treatments
Injectables can do more than just solve skin problems—they can prevent fine lines from happening in the first place. Many younger patients are now investing in BOTOX and certain fillers to slow the onset of wrinkles. Wrinkles are formed by facial muscles flexing and tugging on the skin. If the muscles don’t pull, the skin remains even, and you can enjoy wrinkle-free skin for much longer.
Fun fact: The American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery reported in 2018 that more than 70% of facial surgeons saw an increase in the use of injectables in patients under the age of 30. By investing in BOTOX at an earlier age, you can enjoy smooth skin for as long as possible.
Trying Out “Tweakments”
One of the biggest perks of injectables is how they can be customized. Depending on your needs, different types and amounts of products can be used in specific locations. Many patients want small, subtle changes that enhance their natural beauty. If you want to rejuvenate your skin without looking like you “had work done,” try this “tweakment” approach.
Tweakment is the term given to nonsurgical procedures that gently tweak certain areas of the face. They create natural-looking results and don’t require much downtime or extended investment. The tweakment route is a great option if you’re new to cosmetic treatments because you can make tiny adjustments to your look over time, feeling more confident and comfortable with your appearance.
Injectables are some of the most popular treatments in the world, and there are several good reasons for it. These products fight wrinkles, plump up the skin, and complement your unique beauty.
