    Cosmetic Injectables

    Cosmetic injectables is an umbrella term that refers to any cosmetic medical procedure that is performed with injections. Cosmetic injectables (or cosmetic injections) include treatments such as anti-wrinkle injections, dermal fillers, collagen stimulating injections and fat dissolving injections.

    Cosmetic injectables such as anti-wrinkle injections, dermal fillers and collagen stimulating injections are a popular treatment option for reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the face. These injectables are typically made from substances that are similar to those naturally found in the body and the environment, such as hyaluronic acid or botulinum toxin. They can be injected into specific areas of the face to smooth out wrinkles and give the skin a more youthful appearance.

    The best option for you will depend on your individual needs and goals, something that we will discuss with you during your comprehensive consultation at Cosmetic Connection.

    Anti-wrinkle injections

    Anti-wrinkle injections, also known as neuromodulators or wrinkle injections, are a popular non-surgical treatment option for reducing the appearance of wrinkles on the face. These injections work by temporarily relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles, allowing the skin to smooth out and appear more youthful. Common areas for treatment include the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes. The effects of anti-wrinkle injections typically last for several months, after which time the injections can be repeated to maintain the desired results.

    Anti-wrinkle injections can be used to both improve the appearance of visible wrinkles and to prevent the development of new ones. Treatment is quick, low-risk, almost pain free, and can be completed on your lunch break. Results are natural looking, and the treatment is a great investment if you want to look fresh now and age gracefully.

    Dermal filler for wrinkles

    Dermal fillers are injectable products that are used to add volume and fullness to the skin, making them a popular treatment option for reducing the appearance of deeper wrinkles and skin folds. There are many different types of dermal fillers available, each made from a unique substance and designed to treat specific areas of the face. The most common type of dermal filler used to treat wrinkles is made of a compound based on a substance that can be found naturally in the body known as hyaluronic acid.

    Dermal fillers can be injected into the skin to smooth out wrinkles and restore volume to areas of the face that have lost fullness due to ageing. The effects of dermal fillers typically require maintenance every 6-24 months, depending on the specific product used and the individual’s skin type, age and metabolism.

    Natural treatments to reduce fine lines and wrinkles

    If you’re not ready to have cosmetic injectables for wrinkles, or are looking for a natural way to improve wrinkles that can complement you anti-wrinkle injections or wrinkle dermal fillers, there are a number of easy, affordable and natural solutions.

    • Sleep position: Avoid sleeping on your face. Sleeping on your stomach or side will apply pressure to your skin, leading to skin bunching and creasing. Over time, this can cause sleep lines to become etched into the skin, most commonly on the forehead.
    • Sun protection: Protecting your skin from harmful UV rays will slow down collagen loss and preserve the structural strength of your skin, delaying the development of wrinkles.
    • Avoid cigarette smoke: Cigarette smoke is one of the most common causes of premature skin ageing. Avoid smoking, and avoid being around others who are smoking to prevent skin damage.
    • Moisturiser: Ensuring that your skin is well hydrated is a great way to keep it plump and radiant. Dry skin is more prone to wrinkling because it is thinner.
    • Healthy lifestyle: A healthy lifestyle means healthy skin. Healthy skin ages slower and is more resilient.

    Eventually wrinkles will develop no matter what you do. The key takeaway is that preventing wrinkles is more effective than treating them, and consistent treatments will slow down the development of wrinkles. So, if you want to be proactive and age gracefully, book in for treatment with the experts at Cosmetic Connection today.
