Our society sometimes treats injectables and other cosmetic procedures as hush-hush, but they’re a very common procedure. In 2020 alone, 13.2 million people in the United States received minimally invasive aesthetic procedures, like injections.
Is it any wonder why injectables are estimated to grow by over 9% every year from 2022 to 2030?
Whether you want to add more volume to your face or you want to tame the crow’s feet around your eyes, injectables can give you natural-looking results without going under the knife. While the results are amazing, it’s important to go to a reputable provider with experienced medical staff who can boost your appearance — safely.
Ideal Image is North America’s #1 personal aesthetics brand and its medical team specializes in injectables. Learn how the brand’s FDA-approved injectables can enhance your appearance — and check out a few Ideal Image reviews to see what you can expect for your experience.
How can injectables improve my appearance?
Fine lines and other signs of aging start to appear in your late 20s and early 30s. Everyone ages, but factors like:
- Sun exposure
… can speed up the aging process. But with injectable fillers, you can replenish your skin’s appearance by targeting specific problem areas, turning back the clock in as little as a few hours.
While creams and gels can improve the appearance of fine lines, they only go so deep — and you have to apply them daily for the long term. Fortunately, injectables give you lasting results without the daily hassle of applying a cream.
Plenty of Ideal Image reviews show that fillers are an effective, minimally invasive, non-surgical option to get your youthful glow back. You do need regular treatments to keep up your new look, which means getting treatments every 3 – 12 months, but it ultimately depends on the treatment you choose. If your medical staff deems it appropriate, you can also use a combination of different fillers for a more youthful overall appearance.
If you want to:
- Plump up your lips
- Increase the volume in your cheeks or face
- Minimize wrinkles
- Contour your face
… you may want to consider injectable fillers.
The only opinion about your appearance that truly matters is your opinion. If you want injectables to get back a certain look, go for it! Sometimes feeling more confident about your looks can help with your overall confidence.
That was the experience of Sarah T., who left an Ideal Image review that said, “Ideal Images services are life-changing. My skin is so youthful now and it GLOWS; so worth every penny!!! The girls are also amazing with Botox and filler, so much more gentle than my plastic surgeon and the price was way more reasonable. Can’t say enough positive things!”
Four Injectables From Ideal Image
You might have heard of Botox before, but there are plenty of injectable aesthetic treatments on the market. Ideal Image offers several options depending on your personal aesthetic goals.
In 2020, Botox was one of the most common minimally-invasive aesthetic procedures in the United States: over 4.4 million people got Botox injections that year.
Botox is made of a neurotoxin that freezes muscles and relaxes wrinkles. Because it’s a neurotoxin, you’ll get the best results from your Botox treatments by going to a provider like Ideal Image and working with trained medical professionals.
Botox is ideal for treating:
- Forehead wrinkles
- Crow’s feet
- Lines between the eyes
If you want to smooth out the signs of aging, Botox can turn back the clock and reverse frown lines. Plus, there’s no downtime! Many people get Botox injections during their lunch break. You can expect to see results in as little as two hours, while most Botox injections last 3 – 6 months.
In her Ideal Image review, Amy S. said, “My first time to ever have botox and filler in my lips, and all I can say about my results is “WOW”!!! They made sure I understood exactly what was being done each step of the way so there was no anxiety and it was painless!”
Juvéderm is a filler made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance in the human body. Ideal Image injects Juvéderm in strategic places around the mouth and nose to minimize the appearance of wrinkles, but it can also be used to plump up lips and cheeks.
If you want to get the volume back in your face, Juvéderm is an FDA-approved filler that takes less than an hour to inject. You should see immediate results, but it can take up to 2 weeks for your youthful glow to return.
“I am so extremely happy with my experience here! I had been researching lip injections for weeks,” Makena M. writes in an Ideal Image review, “I chatted with a girl online through their website and they were able to fit me in that same day for the consultation and procedure! All of the ladies at their office were so welcoming and really made me feel relaxed. Thank you ladies so much for my beautiful lips!!”
Like Juvéderm, Restylane is also made from hyaluronic acid. Since you lose hyaluronic acid in your skin naturally as you age, this injection is used to restore youthful plumpness to your face.
Many men and women choose Restylane to:
- Instantly smooth smile lines
- Plump up lips
- Restore lost volume to the face
So, how is Restylane different from Juvéderm? Restylane is a slightly thicker gel that’s used for a deeper injection. If you have more stubborn wrinkles that don’t respond to other treatments, your Ideal Image team might recommend Restylane instead of Juvéderm.
Restylane injections take less than an hour and you’ll receive a topical anesthetic to make the procedure more comfortable. Most patients see almost immediate results, but it can take up to two weeks for the skin to completely heal. It’s normal for healing to happen unevenly, so don’t panic! It can take some time for the skin to heal, but afterward, you’ll be left with natural-looking results.
Keep in mind that you can’t receive Restylane if you’ve ever had a surgical facelift. Your medical team will consult with you to determine if Restylane is the right injection for your goals. You can expect it to last 9 – 12 months before disappearing from the body naturally — that’s the big plus of going with a hyaluronic acid filler!
In her Ideal Image review, Corinne G. said, “I have been self-conscious about my lips for a while because I have a very defined cupid’s bow but otherwise thinner lips. My experience at Ideal Image was amazing. Their team made me feel completely at ease before, during, and after the procedure. I love my new smile and am so glad I went with Ideal Image. I will be going back!”
4. Juvéderm Voluma® XC
As we age, our cheeks can sink in. This naturally happens when there are lower levels of hyaluronic acid in the body. With less hyaluronic acid in the skin, the face can look sunken and thin.
Some patients go for surgical solutions like facial fat injections or fat transplantation. That’s expensive and risky, and there’s a chance it won’t work. Injectables like Voluma are minimally-invasive and can give you better results in the long run.
If you want to get a little fullness back to your face without surgery, try an injection like Voluma to restore your cheek volume in minutes. Voluma is a Juvéderm product that’s specifically designed to bring back the youthful plumpness of the face with a series of strategically-placed injections. It’s used to create more definition in the cheeks, adding gorgeous contours to the face that are lost as we age.
During the procedure, Ideal Image uses a fine needle to target specific areas in your cheeks that need a little plumping up. Voluma contains lidocaine, which will make treatment more comfortable, but your team can do a topical anesthetic to ease the pinch, too. There’s no downtime with this procedure, so you’re free to continue with your day after getting a Voluma injection.
With optimal treatment, you can expect your Voluma results to last up to two years.
“My eyes look less sunken in and my skin already feels healthier, and I think it’s even still in recovery for another 24 hours! Thank you so much to the staff at this location for consulting me in using this for my rosacea, scarring, and uneven skin tone. My technician Marissa had a great bedside manner and knew exactly what she was doing. Thank you, thank you, thank you again!” says patient Darylynn W. about her Ideal Image experience.
