The Basics of Cosmetic Injectables

The Basics of Cosmetic Injectables

When it comes to facial rejuvenation, there are several options other than surgery. Each of them can effectively target mild-to-moderate signs of facial aging like wrinkles, fine lines, and facial sagging due to volume loss. One of the best options for non-surgical rejuvenation is cosmetic injectables. 

At Turquoise Springs Medical Spa, we use cosmetic injectables to provide beautiful & natural-looking results to our clients in San Antonio, TX. If you are interested in non-surgical facial rejuvenation using cosmetic injectables, here is what you should know about the basics of cosmetic injectables

Types of Injectables

Cosmetic injectables treat different aesthetic concerns. All of these products can provide amazing results when injected by an experienced aesthetic practitioner. The key is to figure out which product is appropriate for addressing your concerns or achieving your desired beauty goals.


Neuromodulators are a type of cosmetic injectable that are perfect for treating fine lines and wrinkles like crow’s feet. They work by targeting the facial muscles. By temporarily paralyzing these muscles, they can prevent the skin from wrinkling. The neuromodulators we offer include:

  • Botox
  • Dysport
  • Jeuveau
  • Xeomin

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are well-suited for treating aesthetic issues caused by a lack of volume like mild facial sagging, sunken cheeks, hollowed under eyes, thin lips, and facial folds. Dermal fillers typically come in the form of a thicker gel. They also contain ingredients like hyaluronic acid that help the skin retain moisture. When injected into the face, dermal fillers instantly add volume to lift and smooth the skin. The dermal fillers we offer include:

  • Juvederm
  • Restylane
  • Radiesse


Biostimulators are a type of cosmetic injectable that can smooth, tighten, and strengthen the skin. They help stimulate the production of structural proteins like collagen and elastin. Biostimulators are directed deeper into the dermal layers where they can help enhance the underlying structure of the skin. The biostimulators we offer include:

  • Sculptra
  • Radiesse


PDO Threads are a special type of dissolvable suture that is inserted into the dermal layers of the skin. The threads also act as a biostimulator that helps to stimulate the production of elastin and collagen while also providing the skin with structure. There are a variety of threads, including smooth, barbed, and twisted. Our medical team will use a thread type depending on how thin or thick your skin is. 

The PDO threads we carry include:

  • Euro Threads
  • Nova Threads
