The Truth About Facial Injectables

Facial Injectables Require Less Commitment Than Traditional Plastic Surgery, Is It Right For You?

Facial injectables include an array of procedures. From lip injections, to Botox and more, they are the temporary fix that can transform a patient’s faces almost instantly. Injectables demand less commitment than a facelift or a mini facelift, and will not cost you a fortune.

The Deterrent

Many patients are afraid the results just may end up being too extreme. Celebrities such as Pamela Anderson have received poorly executed lip injections, producing a mouth that came out looking overdone and unnatural. Around the same time, television sitcoms such as Step-By-Step, showed girls who tried lip injections, but ended up with duck lips. This was an exaggeration, but sometimes people demand surgical procedures that result in a negative product that can’t be blamed on the surgeon.

Facial injectables are temporary, meaning you will have to go to your cosmetic surgeon for numerous doses. The plus side is that if the results were too harsh last time and/or you were dissatisfied with the procedure, the affects will wear off. Also, you can have your doctor increase or decrease the dosage during your next visit, since you will have more of an idea of what you are looking to achieve.

Many people hold the belief that Botox will freeze their face. In the past, some people have been unhappy with their Botox procedures, but times change. Botox will not keep your eyebrows raised or force you to always look surprised, which are common misconceptions. A knowledgeable cosmetic surgeon will be mindful enough to analyze where you truly need facial injections, and will administer minor quantities to those targeted areas.


Facial injectables are great for beginners. As previously stated, they are also a cheaper method when it comes to plastic surgery. Injectables are known to take years off of your face, and can benefit fine lines, wrinkles, crow’s feet, dark circles under eyes and more.
