When it comes to rejuvenating the face, plastic surgery is not the only answer. In fact, people are 12 times more likely to start their facial rejuvenation procedures with cosmetic injections (dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle solutions) than they are to begin Facelift or Necklift Surgery.

For individuals with mild skin sagging and superficial lines and wrinkles, cosmetic injections can go a long way to restore a more youthful appearance.

But this can vary from mid-20 to the seventies and beyond, especially for dermal fillers, lip filler injections, chin augmentation treatments and dermal fillers to the cheek area (cheek fillers).

Where can cosmetic injections be used?

Cosmetic Injections can be used over many areas of the face; although there are some danger zones to avoid.  Every person’s anatomy is also slightly different (to significantly different), meaning only someone extremely knowledgeable in facial anatomy can assess where these danger zones might exist from one patient to another.

That’s one key reason people recommend having a skilled Cosmetic Injector who is also a talented Specialist Plastic Surgeon – because knowing where to inject is crucial to your success and safety.

Types of Cosmetic Injections: Anti-Wrinkle Solutions, Dermal Fillers and Adipose-Tissue-Reduction Solutions

Cosmetic Injections fall into THREE key categories; although, within those categories, there are many different options.

Type 1: Muscle Relaxing Solutions / Facial Injections and additional medical purposes

The first category of Cosmetic Injections is the most popular of all non-surgical cosmetic treatments – anti-wrinkle solutions.

  • These muscle-relaxing injections have been used for decades for a variety of medical and cosmetic purposes.
  • They also seem to have growing applications to treat a variety of ageing-related skin concerns and other distressing conditions such as migraines, excessive sweating (hyperhydrosis) or an over-active bladder.
  • They are said to involve a slight stinging sensation, not dissimilar to a mosquito bite, which passes quickly for most patients.
  • Side effects often pass quickly but risks and side effects can vary from patient to patient, and may include temporary redness, skin drooping, swelling or infection risks (do NOT go into heated areas or do strenuous exercises for at least 2 days before and after your treatment).
  • Ask Dr Sackelariou for a full list of potential complications before you proceed with any cosmetic injection treatments.

Type 2: Dermal Fillers or Facial Volumisation including Lip Filler Injections, Chin Augmentation and Cheek Filler

The second category of Cosmetic Injections is the second most popular non-surgical cosmetic facial treatments – dermal fillers.

  • Today’s best Dermal Fillers are also temporary in nature (warning: never resort to permanent fillers).
  • They involve a substance that has many similarities to a naturally occurring substance in your body and skin, and they also draw moisture and volume to the treated areas.
  • They can help stimulate cellular renewal, nutrient circulation and support structures (ask about a Skin Booster injecting session if you have dull, lifeless-looking skin).
  • Dermal Fillers can be used to help reduce some of the lines and wrinkles across different areas of the face, such as reducing crow’s feet or marionette lines.
  • They can sometimes be used under the eyes in the tear trough area, to reduce under-eye shadowing effects.
  • They are popular for temple-area restoration or brow area volume replacement, along with cheek augmentation and jawline strengthening, where hallowing has occurred due to skeletal atrophy and skin sagging.
  • Dermal Fillers come in many forms or types of consistencies and we insist on using top quality brands that feel and look natural when artfully applied.
  • Dermal filler injections are also best employed using a holistic ‘liquid facelift’ approach that involves strategic placement of dermal fillers along with line-targeting anti-wrinkle injections and skin smoothing solutions.

Dermal fillers can also be used to aesthetically enhance, augment (volumise) or balance out certain facial features.

Different Cosmetic injection Treatments that employ dermal fillers include:

  • cheek augmentation or volumisation of the cheek area using dermal fillers
  • lip filler/lip augmentation (lip shaping, cupid’s bow shaping, balancing out an asymmetrical smile, reducing an overly gummy-looking smile, non-surgical lip lift or lip enlargement)
  • nose reshaping (non-surgical/liquid rhinoplasty) for minor concerns about nose shapes – suitable candidates only and there are serious risks you need to take into consideration
  • jawline strengthening when the jawline is weak looking or mildly lacking in definition
  • slightly recessed chins can be augmented with dermal filler OR with a combined non-surgical and surgical chin augmentation
  • chin augmentation can be further enhanced by jawline or chin filler or under-chin ‘double chin fat reducing’ injections
  • other alternatives to facial implants or facial plastic surgery such as a Facelift

Type 3: Fat Reducing Injections such as the “Double Chin Reduction Injections Treatment”

The third category of Cosmetic Injections is the newly approved version of fat-dissolving solutions for under-chin fat, known as submental fullness.

This is the typical fat cell distribution that leads to the appearance of a double chin, a fatty neckline or under-chin fat rolls.

  • Under chin fat becomes more prominent as we age, partially due to having a higher percentage of body fat and partially due to the fact the skin around our neckline has started to sag.
  • The injections specifically target the sub-mental-area fat cells, not the skin, so if your skin is also loose, you may require a surgical neck lift and/or facelift with a neck lift.
  • At least 3 treatments are required (about 4 weeks apart but this can vary) and results can take several months to see the full effects.

In other words, although these double-chin/under-chin injections have some skin tightening effects, they do not compensate for sagging, loose skin and sometimes can make your sagging skin condition more noticeable.
