Millions of rhinoplasty and other invasive cosmetic surgical procedures performed every year, we know that the less invasive a treatment is, the more accessible it becomes. Nonsurgical cosmetic treatments tend to pose fewer risks and complications and are less expensive. As a result, they generally draw more interest than surgical procedures.
One type of minimally invasive cosmetic procedure is injectables. Injectables refer to any type of cosmetic treatment that involves an injection to administer a product that helps reduce or eliminate an aesthetic problem. The top 5 injectable products according to the ASPS are the following:
Sister of Restylane, Perlane is a hyaluronic acid based injectable filler that “fills” out wrinkles and facial contours. The product is injected at a specific depth in the skin to achieve the desired result. It’s great for deep lines around the mouth, lip augmentation and to plump up the cheeks.
Another hyaluronic acid based product, this injectable filler is popular around the world for its longer lasting effects. Compared to Perlane®, Restylane® is better suited to banish finer facial lines.
Again, another hyaluronic acid based product that is designed to eliminate or reduce the appearance of wrinkles by filling them out. Its smoother formula allows a more natural result. Juvederm® is commonly used for lip augmentation..
And the most popular injectable?
You saw this one coming, didn’t you? BOTOX® is a whole other type of injectable. It acts differently from the other products, designed to target the muscle that creates the offending wrinkles rather than the actual tarnished skin itself. Therefore, although it is considered an injectable, it is not considered an injectable filler.
