Look Your Best With Injectables This Holiday Season

December 11, 2020 Under Skin Treatments

For many, the holiday season can be a time of mingled angst and cheer. Although you might be excited to spend time with those you love, you may be less than eager to reveal the significant changes in your skin that recent months have wrought.

Dynamic and static wrinkles have a way of sneaking up on people throughout the year. The good news is that there are many easy ways to quickly reverse facial aging during the holiday season. With the right injectables, you can restore lost volume, incite rapid regeneration of collagen, and eliminate movement-related creases like frown lines and crow’s feet.

Understanding Different Cosmetic Injectables and How They Work

While there’s currently an endless array of fast-acting and FDA-approved injectables on the market, these products largely fall into one of two categories: neuromodulators and injectable fillers.


Neuromodulators are used to temporarily dampen nerve signals to select facial muscles. Products like Botox and Dysport fall into this class. These injectables release the tension that’s responsible for movement-related creasing or dynamic wrinkles.

Accumulated tension from using the expressive muscles eventually leads to cracking down at the collagen layer. Once targeted muscles are relaxed, smooth collagen is again able to lie flat.

Following Botox injections, patients are able to laugh, frown, smile, furrow their brows, and make other expressive facial movements without revealing the tell-tale signs of facial aging.

Injectable Dermal Fillers

Injectable fillers are designed to address the slightly more advanced signs of static facial aging that typically occur at the mid-face. As people grow older, decreases in collagen production and other forms of facial volume loss can cause the skin at the mid-face to both crease and sag. This results in hollows just at or below the cheeks, creases along the nasolabial folds, and even sagging skin at the jawline.

Often comprised of the naturally occurring substance known as hyaluronic acid (HA), dermal fillers can both replace lost volume and hydrate the skin at every level. Treatments with Restylane, Juvederm, Radiesse, or Volbella can be excellent alternatives to invasive skin-tightening procedures.

Moreover, while surgeries like facelifts and mini facelifts are known for their ability to pull loose skin taut, dermal fillers actually address facial aging at its underlying cause. As such, the results tend to be more natural-seeming and leave people looking like their younger selves. Better still, injections of dermal fillers as well as neuromodulators require no downtime and virtually no risk of scarring.

Finding The Right Injectable For Your Needs

In addition to HA-based dermal fillers, there are also a number of high-quality injectable fillers that are specially designed to support long-term gains in collagen. When necessary, it’s even possible to have neuromodulators and dermal fillers combined in a single appointment to safely address both static and dynamic wrinkling all at once.
