What are Anti-wrinkle injections?
Anti-wrinkle injections are the perfect solution to lines appearing on your face due to ageing, dehydration, sun exposure, or poor nutrition. The whole process is non-invasive, so if the thought of surgery makes you uncomfortable, you should opt for the injections. You don’t have to go under the knife to get a vibrant and refreshed face.
The non-surgical option means that there is no recovery time, the personal risk is reduced, and your money is well spent. Anti-wrinkle injections offer the perfect transitional solution if you are not looking for a full-face lift or you simply don’t require one.
There is no significant discomfort in getting the procedure done. The injections are administered by a professional who does it quickly with great precision. Don’t stress about the needle as it is very fine, so all you really feel is a pinprick. However, if you prefer a pain-free experience then a topical anaesthetic can further reduce the discomfort.
Your face will not be bruised or swollen after the procedure, rather you will notice a transformation in a few days. Your skin will become smooth and youthful just in time for the social event or a holiday.
Anti-wrinkle injections inhibit the formation of inactive wrinkles by obstructing the signal between nerves and muscles. Once the movement in the muscles is reduced, the stress placed on the skin also lessens. This helps you maintain a youthful and pulsating appearance.
The process only takes a few minutes, and with zero downtime, you will be up and running by lunchtime.
Are anti-wrinkle injections permanent?
The procedure is not a permanent fix, although depending on your age, metabolism, and activity level, it should last you anywhere from 3-5 months. The fact that it is temporary makes it safer and more efficient.
However, if you stop using Botox, the muscles will go back to the state they were in before the treatment. Stopping the process is not harmful, but the wrinkles will start reappearing on your face. So, a series of recurring treatments planned every 12-16 weeks is sufficient to maintain the effects of the injections.
How skin ageing can cause wrinkles
As a person ages, their skin loses its elasticity and becomes thin and dry. It is not able to protect itself from damage as it could in its youthful days. As a result, lines, wrinkles, and creases start appearing on the skin.
Once the development of wrinkles begins, other factors such as exposure to UV light, dehydration, and smoking accelerates the process of ageing. For example, direct exposure to the sun breaks down the essential collagen and elastin fibres in the skin. If this layer of connective tissue is damaged, the skin loses its support and becomes weak.
There are many types of wrinkles like forehead creases, droopy eyebrows, frown lines, crow’s feet, under-eye wrinkles, lip lines, and more.
How do I get rid of wrinkles?
You can reduce the look of fine lines on your face by following a regular skin care routine.
- Cleanse your face every day, preferably twice a day. Cleansing is integral as it gets rid of the make-up, dirt, pollution from your skin and reveals a glowing complexion.
- Hydration is very useful, a moisturiser with an SPF can hydrate your face and protect it from UV light.
- A night cream with Retinol will be great for your bedtime skincare. It can help surface skin cell turnover overnight. In the morning, you will notice a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.
- Focus on the skin under your eyes as that area is delicate, so lines are more likely to appear. An eye cream with Retinoid Complex and Vitamin B3 is great for delicate skin and minimising uneven skin tone.
Apart from skincare routines, you can do the following to minimise the appearance of wrinkles on your face.
- Limit your sugar intake
- Increase antioxidants
- Try to quit smoking
- Have a good diet
- Sleep well and hydrate yourself
