4 Minute Read: 

If you are new to cosmetic procedures and looking for the best way to rejuvenate your facial appearance, then you may find yourself overwhelmed with the number of options. Though each cosmetic procedure and treatment is effective, you may be looking for a specific improvement to your facial aesthetic, and what’s more, you may not want to undergo an invasive procedure like a faceliftMiddle-aged woman having a BOTOX® Cosmetic injection in her upper faceFor many women and men, injectable treatments are the way to go. Injectables help to minimize (and even erase) signs of aging on the face, including the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and mild skin laxity. 

While you may have heard of cosmetic injectables as well as some of the brand names, you may be confused as to what they really are. 

Below, you’ll find some information to help you better understand the ins and outs of injectables.

How Can Injectables Benefit You?

Women and men of all ages find themselves frustrated with age- and lifestyle-related concerns. These skin creases around the mouth, nose, eyes, and on the upper face can make you look much older than you’d like to look. However, injectables offer a simple, minimally invasive solution to these aesthetic concerns. 

After your treatment, you can look forward to smoother facial skin that helps you look younger and feel more confident than you have in years. What makes injectable treatments even better is that they take less than an hour to be injected, and since there’s no downtime or recovery time, you can get right back to your daily routine immediately.

How Do Injectables Work?

It is important to understand that there is no one-injectable-fits-all. Each injectable targets a different area of the face, offers different kinds of correction, and is made with different ingredients and thicknesses. 

Because of this, a consultation is necessary so that a trained professional can evaluate your condition and decide which injectable is right for you.

At Aspire MediSpa, we are proud to offer various types of injectables to help our patients achieve their aesthetic goals, no matter what their cosmetic frustrations are. 

Dermal Fillers

As the name suggests, injectable fillers literally fill the injected area with a synthetic solution that helps to add volume to the skin. Fillers are most effective for patients who suffer from wrinkles, lines, skin laxity, and volume loss in the face. 

JUVÉDERM® is one of the most trusted names in fillers. JUVÉDERM® consists of hyaluronic acid (HA), which attracts and retains moisture to help tighten the skin and fill in areas that have become gaunt and thinned out over time. 

Depending on the specific results you are looking for, JUVÉDERM® or JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC can be injected. 

While JUVÉDERM® helps to fill in lines in the skin, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC helps to restore lost volume in the cheeks. Whichever option you have injected, the JUVÉDERM® brand of fillers can help you rejuvenate your facial appearance so that you look and feel younger and more confident. 


Though not technically a dermal filler, KYBELLA® is an injectable treatment that addresses submental fullness and other concerns in the area below the chin. This fat-reducing injectable uses deoxycholic acid to break down subcutaneous fat in the injected area to leave you with a more defined and sculpted neck. 

After KYBELLA®, you can find yourself relaxing and not worrying about the presence of a double chin.


BOTOX® Cosmetic has become synonymous with cosmetic improvements, and that is due to the stunning results that women and men can achieve with this injectable. In fact, BOTOX® Cosmetic and other neuromodulator injectables were the most performed nonsurgical treatments in 2020

BOTOX® Cosmetic helps to correct the appearance of dynamic wrinkles, which are creases in the skin caused by repetitive muscle contractions in the upper face from smiling, frowning, and/or squinting. 

These injectables are made of botulinum toxin-A, which temporarily blocks the muscles from sending signals to the brain. Without these signals, your muscles cannot contract, meaning that the bothersome wrinkles cannot form. 

After your BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment, you can look forward to smoother skin and a more youthful appearance to the areas around your eyes, on your forehead, and between your eyebrows.

Where to Go for Treatments?

When you have cosmetic procedures and treatments performed, you are trusting your results to your injector, so it is important that you have complete trust in that person. 

The professionals at Aspire MediSpa are all trained and knowledgeable professionals who keep their patients’ health and results at the forefront of everything they do. Not only can you rely on Dr. Chin and his excellent staff, but you can trust that they will help you choose the right treatment to help you achieve your desired results.
