My ‘Airbrushing’ Technique for Injectable Treatments

blog_2Throughout my years in practice, I have found that dermal fillers and other injectable treatments are not one size fits all. There are a myriad of injectables that have standard concentrations and consistencies, and each of these treatments produce different outcomes depending on the layer or level of skin in which they are injected. As a result, when administering injectables and fillers (such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, JUVÉDERM®, Restylane®, etc.), we can often change the dilution for the makeup of each solution in order to produce a smoother look.

With the airbrush technique I utilize at my practice, injectables are delivered in layers and rolled/smoothed out as opposed to placing threads or beads of filler that come in only one consistency. Additionally, we try to combine the various injectables and concentration of those injectables with the different layers of the skin. In the end, this helps to achieve a younger, more natural and confluent look that doesn’t appear as if the patient has had anything done.
