Incorporating Injectables into Your Normal Beauty Routine

You know the drill: foundation, concealer, blush, bronzer, highlighter, brows, shadow, liner, mascara, lips. You’re so accustomed to the routine, you could do it in your sleep. But there may be an essential part of your beauty ritual that you’ve overlooked. It’s one that could make your morning go faster and your face look better all day, even if you skipped the makeup — injectables.

If you’re using cosmetics to cover up facial flaws like crepey skin, thin lips, frown lines, and shadows, our Dr. Sharon Gertzman at Serenity Medical Spa can solve all those complaints with injectables that cut down the time you spend in front of the mirror each day and give your skin a youthful, smooth appearance. Here’s why you should consider making injectables a regular part of your routine.

Choices allow customization

In the world of aesthetics, injectables fall into two main categories: neurotoxins (like Botox® and Dysport®) and dermal fillers (like Restylane® and Juvéderm®). These are just a few of the many products and product lines available, and they all do slightly different things.

You may choose a neurotoxin to shore up deep lines between your brows or on your forehead, or you might opt for a hyaluronic acid filler to plump up your lips and add volume to your cheeks. Or you could go with a combination to address multiple issues. Dr. Gertzman specializes in guiding you through the process and helping you choose the right treatment for you.

Makes your makeup look better

Have you ever noticed that your makeup sometimes looks cakey or it sinks into the lines on your face and seems to make them look more pronounced? That’s because your skin has natural wrinkles and crevices that no amount of amount of makeup can hide. 

If you want your makeup to go on smoothly and flawlessly, you’ll need a smooth canvas — your face. Injectables can give you a better foundation for your foundation. 

Makes you look better without makeup

If you’re like most women, there are days when you’re running late and just can’t do your makeup the way you want to, or worse, you miss the chance altogether. You run out the door feeling panicked and naked. 

While makeup is a fun and creative way to enhance your look, there are times when you can’t (or simply don’t want to) deal with it. That’s where injectables save you.

By adding volume where there once were sags, and smoothing areas where your skin was getting crinkly, injectables effectively turn back the clock and give you the confidence to walk out the door without an ounce of makeup if you choose.

Touch-ups are a couple times a year, not daily

When you think of your beauty routine, you think of the daily list of products you use and the order of application. But with injectables, you only have to think about it once or twice a year, depending on the type and your individual response to it. 

The reason the results are ongoing is that dermal fillers trigger a response in your skin that increases your production of collagen and elastin — the two proteins responsible for plump, pliable, pretty skin. As long as those proteins are being manufactured, your skin will keep its smooth structure and texture.

Not only do the effects last anywhere from six months to a year, the results of dermal fillers are almost immediate. You’ll see improvement after a neurotoxin injection in a couple of days, and treatments can be touched up several times a year.
