Finding the Perfect Combination of Cosmetic Injectables

Cosmetic injectables are a great option for early to moderate signs of aging, as they can be used to target both wrinkles and volume loss in the face. 

As you age, your skin becomes less elastic due to a decrease in sebum production and collagen production. Eating a diet high in refined sugar, smoking cigarettes, and drinking alcohol can all lead to premature signs of aging.

Bone loss in the face can also change the shape of your facial contours. As your bones recede and become thinner, the muscle and fat sitting on top of the bones shift as well.

Our expert at Medical Aesthetics & Laser, Dr. Safoora Zaka, uses injectables to treat both wrinkles and loss of volume in the face. Read on to learn how these injectables work, and find out if you’re a good candidate for them. 

Treating the eye area

Dr. Zaka uses Botox® to decrease the lines around the eyes. Botox contains a purified neurotoxin that paralyzes muscle movements, softening fine lines and wrinkles. 

If you also suffer from hollowness underneath the eyes, you may benefit from combining Botox with a dermal filler such as Juvéderm®. These fillers add volume in areas where fat tissues are lost with aging. 

Adding volume to the cheeks and lips 

If you have larger cheeks that have lost volume over time, the buildup of excess skin can add decades to your face. With the help of dermal fillers, you can add volume to your cheeks without going under the knife. Dermal fillers can also be used to fill in lips and fight lip deflation. 

Erasing forehead wrinkles and marionette lines 

Forehead wrinkles are caused by motion, while marionette lines (the lines around the nose) appear as a consequence of volume loss in the cheeks. Dr. Zaka can treat forehead lines with the help of Botox and marionette lines with the help of Juvederm. 

Combining various types of injectables

Combining various types of injectables is safe. In certain cases, it’s recommended for optimal results. Good candidates for injectables don’t have allergic reactions to any of the ingredients used in injectables, and they have realistic expectations for the treatments. 

Depending on the injectable type, you can expect results to last anywhere from 6-24 months. Contact us to schedule an appointment and get expert advice on how to achieve your cosmetic goals. In addition to injectables, Dr. Zaka also offers chemical peels, microneedling, and Ultherapy
