You may think of cosmetic injectables as a fix to your frown lines, and a means to a fuller looking pout. Well, we’re here to tell you that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Here are 9 places we bet you didn’t know could be treated with cosmetic injectables.
And when we are talking about cosmetic injectables we mean either fillers (hyaluronic acid) or Anti-Wrinkle Treatments (botulinum toxin)
Gummy smile (For those of you with a beautiful smile, but a slightly over active top lip).
Placing a small amount of botulinum toxin in just the right spot will prevent the upper lip retracting and revealing as much gum, giving you the confidence to smile again.
Noses (we’re not talking about rhinoplasty)
Dermal fillers can be used in small a
mounts to correct minor asymmetry of the nose or to blend and contour the bridge of the nose (as can the botulinum toxin).
Purified proteins can be used in the armpits to reduce excessive sweating. This treatment is called Hyperhydrosis and works by blocking the neurotransmitters that stimulate the production of perspiration.
If you’re a known ‘clencher’ or wake up with headaches from grinding in your sleep, then perhaps this treatment is for you. Botulinum toxin can be injected into the Masseters (one of the muscles near your jaw) which reduces your ability to clench.
Bunny Scrunch (Nasalis)
These are the scrunch lines that appear at the top of the nose when laughing or frowning. Whilst it may be cute on bunnies, on us these ‘scrunch’ lines can be ageing, and give the appearance of anger or worry (even if you’re not). These are treated with a small amount of anti-wrinkle injections in the area.
Anti-wrinkle injectables administered in small amounts over the upper face has been known to reduce the effects of migraines and headaches. So if you’re a chronic sufferer, it may be worth looking into.
With the right injector, dermal fillers can be used to shape and enhance the jawline, giving you definition and a more aesthetically pleasing look.
Yes you heard right, your chin. For those of you suffering from a dimply chin (orange peel like wrinkles), a treatment of anti-wrinkle injections in the area will help to smooth things out.
Platysmal Bands (Neck)
So, these are those bands that pop out of your neck when you clench (and can make you look really scary when you’re angry). For some, these bands are more prominent than for others, and are treated with botulinum toxin so they soften and better blend into the neck.
