Ageing can occur in different forms on our face, in the form of expression lines, loss of bone structure and even sun damage.
According to some dermatologists, about 75% of the damage you see in the mirror is the result of the sun. However, one should bear in mind that there isn’t a single wonder treatment that works for all including acne facial.
Every type of ageing needs different treatments. For example, muscle relaxers are used to get rid of forehead lines, and dermal fillers are used for nasolabial folds and so on.
You need to know there isn’t anything that’s called a non-surgical facelift. Yes, there are volume replacements, wrinkle reduction, and skin smoothing, but nothing can replace the look you get after surgery.
These results are only temporary, so regular sessions are required, and hence, the cost is slightly higher than just surgical face lifting.
So, what is ageing?
As our body grows, subcutaneous fat becomes less, and this causes wrinkles and fine lines.
To slow down the ageing process, eat healthily and drink lots of water. But just that isn’t enough.
Some people think that receiving regular facial treatments are enough to reduce premature ageing. However, you still need to use anti-ageing creams and if possible, find a non-surgical treatment.
Some common anti-ageing treatments that do not include surgery are;
- Hyaluronic acid
- Fat reduction
- Chemical peel
- Botulinum toxin
In this article, here are 4 injectable forms of anti-ageing treatments:
1. Dermal fillers
Dermal fillers are an effective way to get rid of fine lines and wrinkles quickly.
These fillers fill the deep folds that are found under the skin. The results are fuller cheeks and lips.
Initially, collagen was used for this process. However, due to longer lasting results through the increase in the natural growth of collagen, Hyaluronic acid has replaced it.
2. Muscle relaxers
Botox is a temporary paralysis of the muscles. The result is smooth fine lines and wrinkles. However, if you opt for muscle relaxers, you won’t obtain smooth or an improved texture of the skin.
For best results, only use it on the upper 3rd portion of the face.
3. Liquid facelifts
Liquid facelifts are a combination of muscle relaxers and dermal fillers.
The result? Smoother looking skin, with the elimination of fine lines and wrinkles.
4. Fat melting
This procedure breaks down the accumulation of fat from the body. The chemicals used are Kybella and Deoxycholic acid. These chemicals then absorb the fat back into the body.
So, where can it be used? To remove the sagging fat under the chin, also known as a double chin.
Ageing is a natural process, and though we cannot stop from ageing, we surely can prevent premature ageing and slow down the effects of ageing on our face.
Maintain a beauty routine to take care of your skin. Stay hydrated, eat healthy, manage your stress well, and go for regular facial treatments.
