Enhancing Your Natural Features with Cosmetic Injectables

October 31, 2018
It wasn’t long ago when silicone and bovine-based injectable fillers dominated the cosmetic scene. The most advanced options of their time, these unnatural substances often led to overly exaggerated results. They made lips look waxy and abnormally large, and they made cheekbones appear unusually plump and much too pronounced. The results of these injectables changed the way many people viewed the cosmetic industry. Thankfully, cosmetic injectables have had many advances over the past few decades, and modern formulations are created to not only enhance facial features and compliment natural contours, but also highlight a patient’s innate beauty.

Using Natural Substances to Promote Improved Results

Cosmetic injectables accomplish this, in part, by exploiting substances that occur naturally within the human body. One example of these substances is hyaluronic acid, which acts as the foundation for many of the most recognized and highest-trusted injectables on the market, including Aqua Gold, Juvéderm XC, and Restylane. As hyaluronic acid promotes collagen synthesis and retains healthy moisture levels, the results of its influence on skin and facial tissue mimics the look of a young, healthy body. Other popular injectables, such as Volbella and Sculptra Aesthetic, have been specifically formulated with lesser concentrations of active ingredients to create subtle changes. These injectable fillers are perfect for patients in their 40s, 30s, and even 20s who may be experiencing early signs of aging and collagen degradation in the skin, and who want to take preventative measures in reducing wrinkling and skin laxity.

Enhancing the Body’s Natural Processes

Another way modern injectables have been able to one-up their predecessors is by triggering processes throughout the body. Silicone and bovine-based dermal fillers were designed to introduce foreign substances into healthy tissue. Today’s injectables, on the other hand, use natural substances to encourage skin health and the development of key proteins responsible for keeping skin beautiful. Kybella is an example of one of the most modern advances in cosmetics, as it is the first and only FDA-approved injectable proven to eliminate facial fat and reduce submental fullness by targeting fat cells to be naturally absorbed by the body. This triggering of inherent processes – like the promotion of new collagen production through hyaluronic acid – is ideal for patients seeking results that are both compelling and subtle in their approach.
