Which Cosmetic Injectable is Right for Me?
In recent years, fillers and injectables have gained popularity as a powerful rejuvenative solution to reduce facial aging without surgery. With the wide spectrum of injectable treatments available, board-certified facial plastic surgeon Scott Shadfar, MD understands that selecting the most beneficial product for your needs and goals can be confusing. In general, the best injectable for you depends on which concerns you seek to improve:
- Wrinkles: If you have fine lines that appear when your face is at rest or forming expressions (frowning, smiling, etc.), neuromodulators like BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport®, or Xeomin® are likely the best choices to restore a smoother skin tone. These treatments temporarily inhibit overactive facial muscles to reduce frown lines, crow’s feet, and other expression lines.
- Nasolabial folds (smile lines), marionette lines, and flat contours: Deep creases or flat facial features can be corrected with volume-enhancing dermal fillers. With a variety of options available in the JUVÉDERM® and Restylane® product lines, patients can plump the lips or hands, enhance the cheeks, reduce creases, and restore more youthful facial angles according to their goals.
A consultation with Dr. Shadfar can help you determine the most ideal filler or injectable to refresh your facial appearance. At our Oklahoma City practice, patients interested in injectables can enjoy the benefit of having their treatment performed by a dual board-certified facial plastic surgeon rather than an aesthetic injector. We believe this allows individuals to receive the highest standards of safety and expertise in their injections, as Dr. Shadfar has extensive knowledge in the anatomy of the face as well as the aesthetic principles of facial balance and beauty.
