What Injectables Are Best for the Fall Season?
There’s no right or wrong time to get cosmetic injections, but if you have a special occasion – like the holidays – coming up, then it can be beneficial to plan your injectable schedule strategically. As summer comes to a close and we head into fall, many of us are beginning to think about returning to school and preparing for the holidays. At Beautiful Skin Denver, our knowledgeable team of aesthetic experts can help you choose a customized combination of injectables to keep your look fresh every season. In this blog, we’ll discuss which injectables may be right for you and how to time your appointments so that you get the most out of your cosmetic injections this fall or winter.
Am I a candidate for cosmetic injections?
Patients who are in good health and are frustrated by the visible signs of facial aging – including lines, wrinkles, and lost volume – are often fantastic candidates for cosmetic injections. Additionally, patients hoping to enhance flat features or improve facial symmetry and harmony may benefit from using cosmetic injectables.
Do I need BOTOX® or fillers?
Before deciding when to get your cosmetic injections, it’s important to know which injectables may be most appropriate for you. Don’t worry – we’re here to help! During your initial consultation for facial injections in Denver, CO, one of our experienced injectors will thoroughly evaluate your features, discuss your specific concerns, answer all of your questions, and help determine which products may be most appropriate for you.
The majority of cosmetic injections fall under two classifications, neurotoxins and fillers, each of which has its own unique set of properties and applications. Injectable neurotoxins (also called wrinkle relaxers) are designed to smooth out expressive lines and wrinkles, like Crow’s feet and forehead lines. Injectable dermal fillers, on the other hand, help to minimize deep facial wrinkles, restore lost volume, and plump up thin features – like the lips. Some of the most popular and widely used injectables include:
Injectable wrinkle relaxers
Injectable dermal fillers
- JUVÉDERM® Ultra XC
- JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA™
- JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC
Consider getting injectables this fall
Because injectables provide temporary results – and because certain injectables last longer than others – it is important to plan the timing of cosmetic injections accordingly, particularly if you are preparing for a special event. Leading up to the holidays, autumn can be a perfect time to schedule your cosmetic injections, as the fillers and neurotoxins will have time to settle and take effect, giving you a stunning look that lasts well into the new year.
On average, injectable wrinkle relaxers last for about 3 – 4 months, while dermal fillers can last anywhere from 9 – 18 months, depending on the specific product being used. Patients should also keep in mind that wrinkle relaxers take about a week to become effective. Fillers can provide instant enhancements, though it often takes up to 1 – 2 weeks for post-treatment swelling to subside and for the fillers to soften and settle.
