If you want to smooth lines and wrinkles with zero downtime, cosmetic injectables can help. As more products hit the market and popular aesthetic preferences change, new facial injectable trends to treat adult facial wrinkles have emerged. At SkinSmart Dermatology®, Medical Director Elizabeth F. Callahan, MD loves using injectables in these innovative ways.
“Baby Botox” for Subtle Wrinkle Reduction
While some of our patients can’t stop raving to friends about their injector, others prefer that no one knows they had a treatment. If you’re in the latter camp and want to subtly reduce wrinkles, the “baby Botox” trend could be the answer. This treatment uses smaller doses of BOTOX® Cosmetic spread over more injection points. “Baby Botox” minimizes adult facial wrinkles while preserving a little more facial movement. BOTOX Cosmetic competitors like Dysport® or Xeomin® can also be used in smaller doses for a similar effect.
“Baby Botox” doesn’t last quite as long as larger dose treatments, with some patients reporting benefits for about two to three months versus three to four months with traditional techniques. However, new neuromodulators like the longer-lasting alternative DAXXIFY® could be a promising solution since it has staying power for six to nine months.
Sculptra® Aesthetic for Long-Term Smoothing
Dermal fillers have always been a popular way to add volume to the face, which can, in turn, smooth fine lines and wrinkles. However, Sculptra® Aesthetic works a little differently than hyaluronic acid fillers. This poly-L-lactic acid injectable adds volume while significantly boosting collagen production.
This means you’ll see some results after about two weeks, but the full results will build for about four to nine months. You’ll notice a firmer, smoother complexion with fewer lines and wrinkles as you produce more collagen. The poly-L-lactic acid formula is also longer-lasting, with visible results for two to five years.
