[2 min read] What are micro-injectables?

Have you heard of “micro-injectables” – the latest trend in aesthetics?

For many doctors practising cosmetic medicine, the focus has always been on achieving a natural look for their patients. So when it comes to anti-wrinkle injections, the so-called micro-injectables method has actually been the norm for a while.

What are micro-injectables?

Instead of injecting large amounts of neurotoxin (such as Botulinum toxin) into the face so the muscles won’t move at all, micro-injectables use a smaller amount of neurotoxin to achieve muscle relaxation.

What are the benefits of micro-injectables?

The micro-injectable method avoids the “frozen” look, maintains movement in the face, and allows patients to still be expressive. This is the goal for many patients, especially those seeking cosmetic injectables for the first time.

A barrier for many patients is the fear of looking fake or plastic, or having an obviously over-filled face. Micro-injectables offer a much more subtle enhancement that avoids drastic facial changes for the patient.

Why use micro-injectables?

A good injector will study patients’ facial movements and expressions before deciding how much neurotoxin is needed and administering the injections. This is because everyone is different, so every injectables procedure should be customised according to the patient’s specific needs, goals and face structure.

The goal with micro-injectables is to use the smallest amount of neurotoxin possible to create the desired effect, which is ideal for treating wrinkles, lines, sagging skin, and contouring facial shape.
