If you’re like many patients, the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of how to address fine lines and wrinkles is BOTOX. While this popular injection originally was used for medical purposes, like treating eye spasms, it’s now widely known for its cosmetic benefits. If you’re considering it for yourself, here are five of the latest injectable trends!

#1. BOTOX Before 30

Each year, more and more patients are seeking what’s commonly referred to as “preventive BOTOX.” In fact, according to the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, in one year 64% of plastic surgeons noticed an increase in young people seeking injectables like BOTOX. In short, people in their mid and late 20’s are now interested in smoothing existing fine lines while preventing new wrinkles from forming.

#2. Fillers for Acne Scars

Whether you struggled with mild, moderate, or severe acne, the scars left behind can make you feel insecure about your skin. Luckily, certain fillers can fill in the pits, evening the texture of your skin. That way, you can restore your plump, youthful appearance once more.

#3. Jawline Contouring

Between social media and a high-quality camera within arm’s reach at all times, it’s not surprising that many patients are more and more aware of their appearance. While contouring with makeup can help create the appearance of a structured jawline, there is a more effective solution: fillers. Without surgery, this treatment can help both men and women achieve the contoured jaw they desire.

#4. Lip Injections to Increase Hydration

Do you struggle with dry or chapped lips, especially during the winter months? While lip fillers can no doubt increase the volume of your lips, they can also enhance hydration. So, this cosmetic treatment can benefit the appearance of yours in more ways than one.

#5. Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

Your nose is one of your most prominent features. If you want to straighten the bridge or lift a sagging tip, you don’t have to turn to surgery! Dermal fillers can fix imperfections, giving you a nose you’re confident in.

With so many uses, reliable results, and no need for surgery, it’s not surprising that so many patients are turning to injectables to achieve their aesthetic goals. If you’re interested in doing the same, then schedule your initial consultation today!
