Should I Consider Wrinkle Reducing Injections?
Added on 30th September 2020 in Blog
As we get older, naturally our skin increases the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the skin. This is due to several factors including decreased production of collagen in the skin, dehydration in the skin and ageing. To stop the inevitable appearance of wrinkles in the skin, we look to several solutions to restore our youthful skin and have it glowing once again.
One of those solutions may be the use of wrinkle reducing injections. They have been a revolutionary procedure in cosmetic surgery which has increased in popularity since its birth within the industry. This begs the question of whether you should consider them and the reasons why.
What are wrinkle reducing injections?
Wrinkle reducing injections are more commonly known in the industry as Botox, which is the branded name for botulinum toxin. When the substance is injected into the skin, they help to prevent the production of acetylcholine temporarily. This is a chemical substance found in the body that helps our muscles to contract.
By blocking this substance, the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles are reduced as the muscles relax. How much of the substance requires to be injected depends on the area that you’re looking to have them injected.
When is the right time to get the treatment?
Our fine lines and wrinkles naturally become defined in our skin as we age because it begins to lose elasticity over time. It’s considered that the best time to receive wrinkle reducing injections is when these lines still appear even when your skin is static.
When this occurs can be different for each person but a common age this happens tends to be around the 30’s. Of course, how you live your lifestyle can also affect this. If you smoke regularly, have increased stress levels or regularly exposed to the sun, these can also impact how early your fine lines occur.
How long do the results tend to last?
Once you’ve had your wrinkle reducing injections, you should expect to see the full effect of your treatment around 2 weeks after. However, you will start to see the results of the treatment soon after your treatment.
How long the results last tend to be different with each individual. Depending on how quickly your body processes the chemical, you can see results that last between 3-6 months.
