Introduction to Cosmetic Injections

Cosmetic injections are a non-surgical procedure that enhances your natural beauty. Injections can balance and harmonize facial features, giving you a more youthful and refreshed appearance. With minimal discomfort and downtime, it’s a popular choice for anyone who wants to reclaim their confidence and look their best.

Types of Injectables Used in Esthetics

There are a variety of injectables used in esthetics, including Botox, dermal fillers, and Kybella. Botox is used to relax muscles that cause wrinkles, while dermal fillers add volume and provide youthful fullness. Kybella targets fat under the chin to give you a more contoured jawline.
