Thanks to their accessibility and versatility, injectable treatments are introducing more people than ever to the power of cosmetic enhancements. These quick “lunchtime procedures” require little to no downtime, but offer major improvements, making BOTOX® and injectable fillers at our Atlanta practice rapidly growing favorites among multiple age groups.
In this post, we’ll look at a few reasons why injectables have become so popular. We’ll also discuss the exciting ways people are taking advantage of these helpful treatments.
Prevention vs. Correction
While injectables are known for their ability to reverse signs of aging, men and women are now using injectable treatments as a form of prevention rather than correction. They’re starting at a younger age, hoping to preserve their youthful looks and slow the onset of aging concerns. Rather than offering a one-time transformation, injections are now becoming part of a regular cosmetic upkeep routine for many. Learn more about this trend in this blog post.
As an example, people now commonly start BOTOX Cosmetic in their 20s or 30s to prevent repeated contractions that may lead to wrinkles down the road. Using these treatments as a form of maintenance can even prevent (or at least postpone) the need for extensive surgical corrections.
The Power of Subtlety
The trend of subtle and natural-looking enhancements is also growing in popularity, eclipsing the once-desired dramatic outcome. Injectables are often a more sensible choice for this goal than surgical procedures. Fillers especially allow for small, easily customizable tweaks for various concerns, including:
- Insufficient cheek volume
- Thin lips due to genetics or aging
- Certain nose contouring issues such as nasal humps
This method is easier to incorporate into daily life than surgery because it doesn’t involve major prep or commitment. Results are also temporary and some are reversible, which makes this approach alluring to first-time cosmetic patients who may be nervous about diving into the world of medical aesthetics.
A Safe Approach
With the increase in accessibility, it’s now all too easy to find practices offering these services that aren’t actually qualified to deliver safe, high-quality treatments. It is important for anyone seeking treatment to remember that not all injectors are equal in knowledge and skill. While injections may seem like quick fixes, they still need to be treated like the medical procedures they are. To make sure your experience is safe and effective, we recommend:
- Checking that your potential injector has been properly trained.
- Looking for a practice overseen by a board-certified plastic surgeon.
- Browsing through before-and-after photos of actual patients to check for a proven track record of great results.
