The term “injectables” is a collective term for botox and fillers, as they are both treatments in which a special liquid is inserted with an injection needle. These small and virtually painless procedures can help you to address small imperfections in your face, for example, so that you can shine again and look satisfied in the mirror. The effect of injectables is temporary and usually remains visible for about 6 to 12 months, but the treatments can be repeated as desired.
So an injectable can be either botox or a filler, but there is an important difference between the two. Botox is a temporary muscle relaxant that is used to make wrinkles less visible, while fillers aim to give volume to the lips, for example. Depending on your goals and wishes, together we discuss which treatment best suits your situation and how we can achieve the best results. Sometimes this is best achieved with botox, sometimes with fillers, and sometimes with a combination of both treatments.
Because treatments with injectables have become very popular in a short period of time, there are also many different applications possible. Botox you undoubtedly know from treatments against wrinkles, crow’s feet and hanging mouth corners, but did you know that botox can also be great for migraines, excessive sweating or a gummy smile? Fillers, on the other hand, can plump up your lips, but also can add volume to your cheeks or temples, under your eyes, or to your cheekbones, for example.
