How to Start an Injectable Routine in 2023 – A Lasting Impression Guide


Nowadays, it seems like a needle can fix practically anything. For smile lines, crow’s feet, and nasolabial folds (marionette lines), injectable treatments are widely available in the cosmetic and aesthetics industry. While some treatments can reduce fat or promote a youthful tone, others work to stop wrinkles before they start. However, beginning an injectable program isn’t automatic for millions of Americans. You need to do your homework and find a reliable service before incorporating the newest beauty trend into your self-care routine.

Nearly every cosmetic injectable now available has been tried and used at Lasting Impression in Bergen County, New Jersey, and we are very particular about which procedure is best for our patients. Our expertise in the area is extensive, which is why we are providing this brief introduction to the confusing world of injectable therapies.

Which Injectables Are Available?

In this article, we’ll focus just on the two most popular injectable treatments: neurotoxins (also known as neuromodulators) and dermal fillers.

Almost everyone is familiar with Botox®. Millions of people are happy because of the straightforward name. But botulinum toxin is also the main component of several name-brand goods with focused, targeted uses. 

The second most prevalent injectable therapy is dermal fillers. Dermal fillers replace volume lost as we age by employing a synthetic version of your own hyaluronic acid (HA), which supports your skin. Dermal fillers are available in a variety of sizes, forms, and uses, and they can be used to fill lips, accentuate cheekbones, get rid of under-eye bags, and even change the way our hands seem skeletal.

How Do Dermal Fillers & Neurotoxins Work?

Neurotoxins that cause fine lines and wrinkles, such as Botox (and its numerous specialized versions), function by weakening the facial muscles that cause these imperfections. While some people may claim that this procedure “paralyzes” the muscle, the objective goal of the procedure is to reduce the activity of overactive muscles, including the forehead muscle that causes horizontal creases. We can reduce wrinkles by relaxing the muscles, giving the skin a natural, youthful appearance.

On the other hand, dermal fillers actually increase volume in the face, neck, and yes, even the hands. Our bodies manufacture large amounts of hyaluronic acid when we are young. This HA resides beneath the skin, promoting health and moisture and maintaining firm, supple skin. But as we get older, our HA reserves naturally diminish. Instead, gel-like dermal fillers perform the operation, adding volume and tightening the skin to lessen the appearance of wrinkles

Which injectable is the best choice for me?

It all depends on the situation and distinctive features of your face when deciding between neurotoxins and dermal fillers. Of course, there isn’t always an either/or choice. Both injectables are beneficial for some patients. But if you had to pick just one, which one would you pick?

In the world of cosmetics, it is believed that:

  • Neurotoxins work well for wrinkles associated with or visible during particular facial expressions.
  • Dermal fillers work better for wrinkles on your face when you’re not moving them.

The bathroom mirror is perhaps the best tool for making this choice. Neurotoxins are the best option if you’re troubled by the small lines and wrinkles that appear when you smile, frown, or squint. Dermal fillers may be more helpful for you if the wrinkles that you notice when not moving your face at all irritate you more.

What are the Names of the Most Common Injectables?

At Lasting Impression, we stay current on the most recent advancements in injectable technology and specific applications. Depending on the patient’s preferences, we provide the following injectables.
