New injectable products are making Botox a thing of the past.

There is a new generation of injectable products in the market that stretch, lift and contour our facial features with an added benefit: a quick and easy recovery.
According to expert dermatologists, sagging skin is the most revealing sign of aging. The majority of women lose about 20% of facial muscle when they are in their fifties and early sixties. Researches are increasingly recommending a new procedure just arrived from England. Reflation is an injection of hyaluronic acid applied to flaccid muscles, usually under the eyes, cheeks and forehead.
A complete procedure requires two to three visits to your dermatologist, with a total cost of around $ 4.000. The results can last up to six months, and for better results, doctors recommend periodical skin maintenance to reduce the need for more injections.
The nose suffers the effects of aging as much as the rest of our facial features. Over the years the nose increases in size and looses its firmness, which betrays the imperfections of the bones that hold the nasal cavity.
New fillers can help patients recover their youthful appearance, provided the person who performs this procedure has the skills of a sculptor, and understands that one millimeter can considerably alter the look of the face. The liquid nose job can be done in half an hour and costs $700, a huge difference, considering that a two hour nose surgery can cost upwards of $8,000.
As we age, our facial expressions can leave indiscreet vertical lines around the lips. To mitigate the odious marks, which are in fact wrinkles on the lips, nothing beats the Belotero Balance dermal fillers for natural and remarkable results. A session costs between $ 650 and $ 750 and the results last between 6 and 9 months.
One of the most successful cosmetic procedures is the removal of excess fat from places where it is harmful to inject it in the places where it is needed. Accordingly, fat can be extracted from thighs, knees or abdomen and used to increase and shape the breasts. This procedure takes about two hours and costs around $ 10,000. ■
