Four Ways to Rejuvenate Your Face with Injectables

By: Dr. Hyemin Pomerantz


When most people think of cosmetic injectables, the first thing that comes to mind is erasing lines or plumping up the lips. While these are certainly popular and exciting benefits of using cosmetic injectables, they’re not the only ones! At VivaSkin Dermatology and Aesthetics in Wellesley, MA, Dr. Hyemin Pomerantz offers a wide range of injectable dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxers to help patients take their look to the next level in more ways than one. Let’s take a closer look at four of the most compelling enhancements that can be made with facial injectables here.

What are injectables?

The term "cosmetic injectables" refers to a collection of products that can be injected into certain features in order to make temporary aesthetic improvements to a person’s face – and, in some scenarios, other parts of their body. The two most popular types of cosmetic facial injections are dermal fillers, like JUVÉDERM®, and wrinkle relaxers, like BOTOX®.

How can injectables enhance my face?

For patients hoping for a more convenient, more affordable, less invasive alternative to plastic surgery, cosmetic injectables can be a fantastic solution. Even patients who are simply looking to “get ahead” of the aging process can benefit greatly from the use of cosmetic injections. If you’re wondering if injectables may be right for you, consider the following four ways in which your face can be rejuvenated with injectable dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxers:

1. Smooth out lines and wrinkles

Both static lines and dynamic lines can be dramatically improved with the use of dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxers, respectively. These include:

  • Forehead lines
  • Brow lines
  • Glabellar lines
  • Frown lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Lip lines
  • Smoker’s lines

2. Restore lost facial volume

As we age, many of us experience a loss in facial volume, which can lead to:

  • Sunken circles under the eyes
  • Hollowed cheeks
  • Thin lips

With dermal filler injections, lost volume can almost instantly be restored, giving patients a softer, fresher, more youthful appearance once again.

3. Plump up flat features

Some patients have naturally thin or flat features, like the lips, which can be enhanced with dermal filler injections.

4. Create facial harmony

For many people, cosmetic injections can help to balance out facial features for better proportions, symmetry, and overall harmony across the entire face. For example, fillers can be used to strengthen a weak chin or jawline, as well as to create a more pleasing, symmetric nose shape.

How long do injectables last?

The longevity of your injectable results will depend on a variety of factors, including which type of injectable was used, which specific product was used, how much of the product was administered, and individual factors, like how quickly your body breaks down or metabolizes the injectable. Generally speaking, fillers can be expected to last for about 12 months, while wrinkle relaxers typically provide effects lasting up to 3 – 4 months.

During your initial consultation for injectable fillers and wrinkle relaxers in the Dover, MA area, Dr. Pomerantz can recommend an injectable treatment schedule that will help keep you consistently looking and feeling your best.
