Anti-Wrinkle Injections

We use the term “injectable” to refer to any type of injection, but here we will specifically be referring to cosmetic injectables.

Cosmetic injectables are non-invasive and are used to help reduce wrinkles and fine lines while boosting collagen production.

There are many types of cosmetic injections but the most popular include fillers and anti-wrinkle injections. Cosmetic injectables or dermal fillers have many uses.

As we age, the skin loses its elasticity and becomes thinner, which can cause it to lose firmness. There are several factors that contribute to this natural ageing process, including:

  • Loss of collagen and elastin
    • Collagen and elastin are proteins that give our skin its strength and elasticity.
    • As we age, our body produces less of these proteins, leading to a loss of firmness and elasticity.
  • Gravity
    • The constant pull of gravity on our skin over time can cause it to sag and droop.
  • Sun damage
    • Exposure to the sun’s UV rays can damage the collagen and elastin in our skin, leading to premature ageing.
  • Genetics
    • Some people may be genetically predisposed to loose skin, due to factors such as a lack of natural skin elasticity.
  • Lifestyle factors
    • Poor diet, smoking, and alcohol consumption can also contribute to skin ageing and loss of firmness.

Not only can injectables help plump up the thinning tissue so that you have a smoother-looking complexion but they can also smooth fine lines are wrinkles helping give your skin a fresher, natural appearance.
