Unconventional Uses for Popular Cosmetic Injectables

Unconventional Uses for Popular Cosmetic InjectablesIf you are familiar with AYA, you’re probably already aware of the effects cosmetic injectables can have on the areas on and around a person’s face. Cosmetic injectables rejuvenate facial skin and fill areas of lost volume by minimizing the effects of aging like wrinkles and lines that appear on the face. What you may not know is that these are versatile treatments that can provide similarly excellent results to other parts of your body as well.

The skin on a person’s body is just as prone to sun damage and wrinkling as the skin on our face, though people rarely take the same measures to reduce wrinkles on their body that they commonly do on their face. Years of sun exposure and natural aging can lead to wrinkles and lax skin on the body. In the last few years, various injectable treatments have been approved by the FDA to treat the skin and other issues on other parts of the body including the chest.

Although they are known primarily as a facial treatment, Sculptra® Aesthetic injections can be used to reduce wrinkles and treat the skin on the chest. Sculptra® Aesthetic Chest Rejuvenation restores skin volume by working within the deep dermis to strengthen the skin’s structure. A series of Sculptra® Aesthetic Chest Rejuvenation treatments can smooth out wrinkles, minimize the appearance of skin laxity and rejuvenate the skin to take years off of the appearance of your aging chest.

For people who suffer from excessive armpit sweating (known commonly as hyperhidrosis), cosmetic injectables can help with that too. Botox® Cosmetic injections have been FDA-approved and proven to help with even the most extreme hyperhidrosis symptoms. Unlike more invasive surgical solutions to prevent excess sweating, Botox® injections to the armpits reduce sweat by simply blocking the nerves from reaching the sweat glands. Patients who received Botox® injections for sweating have reported up to a 75% reduction in armpit perspiration within their first month of treatment.

These are just a couple of examples of how cosmetic injectables can help rejuvenate your skin and provide you with an improved appearance and self-image.
