Want to Look Rejuvenated? Injectables Can Help is written in partnership with The Center for Dermatology, Cosmetic and Laser Surgery
Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve been warned about how the sun’s harsh UV rays can damage your skin. However, when you’re young, wrinkles, sun spots, and other future imperfections don’t really cross your mind. But I’ll be the first one to tell you that prevention is KEY to healthy, youthful-looking skin—so don’t forget the sunscreen in the morning, take your makeup off before you go to bed, and lather on the night cream.
However, regardless of how well we take care of our face and neck, we can still develop pesky fine lines and chin fat. Sometimes things other than lifestyle (like genetics) can make us look older than we feel, and, unfortunately, these things aren’t always in our control. Plastic surgery is an option for dealing with aging issues, but I know surgery isn’t for everyone. The good news is that injectable treatments can help solve common issues like crow’s feet, double chin, forehead lines, lip lines, and volume loss.What’s great is that these minimally invasive injectables can be your less committal, yet still effective alternative.

You Can Fit Injectables Into Your Busy Life
For busy moms, “me-time” is often out of the question. However, injectable treatments are quick, so you can get them on your lunch break or in between errands. And better yet, these treatments are minimally invasive and typically produce only mild side effects, which means little to no downtime is necessary.
In our local area, the Center for Dermatology, Cosmetic & Laser Surgery offers many different treatments to help you look your best, even when you’re running on empty between chauffeuring your kids, meal prepping, or working full-time. This team of aesthetic professionals offers solutions like BOTOX, KYBELLA, and dermal fillers, at its Westchester, NY,practice. Let’s look at what each of the treatments can offer:

BOTOX is made from a purified toxin that temporarily inhibits the small muscles you activate when you squint or frown. Repeated use of these muscles causes dynamic wrinkles. When the BOTOX relaxes these muscles, the wrinkles are softened or eliminated. Good candidates for BOTOX are people concerned with:
- Crow’s feet
- Frown lines
- Horizontal forehead lines
KYBELLA is the first non-surgical, FDA-approved treatment to reduce your double chin, also known as submental fat. KYBELLA is made from a chemical that the body naturally produces to help absorb fats. When injected, KYBELLA destroys fat cells, which leaves you with a more defined chin and jawline.
As many women know, chin fat can happen despite a healthy diet and regular exercise. Somepeople are simply more prone to fat in the chin area, and age can make a double chin more pronounced.
Good candidates for KYBELLA are concerned with submental fat but are not interested in liposuction or other surgical methods. You will probably need 2 to 4 treatments to achieve your desired results.
Dermal fillers add volume and can smooth out fine lines to restore youthful contours on your face. Unlike BOTOX, fillers typically provide instant results. Depending on which type of filler you choose, results can last up to a year. Some of the most popular dermal fillers include JUVÉDERM® and Restylane®, which are made from hyaluronic acid (HA), another naturally occurring substance in the body.
Dermal fillers have been approved to treat many different skin concerns including:
- Smile lines
- Laugh lines
- Frown lines
- Tear troughs
- Crow’s feet
- Loss of facial volume in the cheeks
- Vertical lip lines
- Smoker’s lines
Just because these treatments can erase wrinkles and other signs of aging, be sure to continue taking care of your skin! And if you decide to get injectables, maximize your results by avoiding the sun, getting enough sleep, finding ways to de-stress, cutting back on sugar, and keeping your skin moisturized. You’ll be happy you did!
