The benefits of anti-wrinkle injections

25th May 2018

Even if you are extremely vigilant with your skin care routine, the signs of ageing will come to all of us. Some may see them earlier than others, but none of us are naturally immune to fine lines and wrinkles. Thanks to the advances in cosmetic treatments, those of us who want to preserve our young looks can do so with ease. Anti-wrinkle injections are a great alternative to going under the knife! They work by blocking the signals between your nerves and muscles, meaning they keep wrinkles at bay. This non-surgical treatment is proven to be safe, virtually painless and incredibly popular! To sum up why anti-wrinkle injections are becoming more popular, here are some of the big benefits to the treatment.

  1. Non-surgical 

One of the biggest benefits to anti-wrinkle injections is that it’s a non-invasive treatment which requires no surgery. This is not only minimising risks from having the treatment, it drastically lowers the amount of recovery time, the amount of possible side effects and the actual cost of the treatment. You can resume your everyday activities rather quickly, with the treatment having a minimal effect on your lifestyle other than your new boost of confidence. The results do not take long to appear, either. Most clients see results 3-4 days post-treatment.

  1. No need to say goodbye to your makeup

Most cosmetic surgery procedures ask you to avoid wearing makeup post-treatment for a set amount of time. At R3 Aesthetics, Milton Keynes, we completely understand that for many modern, working women, this is a rather impractical task. A great thing about anti-wrinkle injections is the non-invasive nature to the treatment. The skin undertakes rather low trauma, meaning you can apply your makeup relatively quickly post-treatment. Of course, we ask that you apply minimal pressure to the treated areas. This guarantees a quicker recovery from the treatment and you’ll see your results much sooner. Also, the low trauma to your skin means the risk of bruising and swelling is very unlikely. Your skin will look plumper and younger in a matter of days.

  1. The results aren’t permanent

It may sound odd to class this as a benefit, but for some people, the fact that anti-wrinkle injections aren’t a permanent change to your face means they retain a lot of control over their appearance. A daunting aspect to surgery for a lot of people is the permanent aspect of the procedure. What the surgeon does, on that day, is what you’re stuck with. And if you wish to correct anything, it’ll involve more painful procedures and money spent. A brilliant thing about non-surgical treatments is that not only are the results not permanent, but the results are extremely easy to correct if you’re not happy for whatever reason.

  1. Quick recovery time

As mentioned in the first point, anti-wrinkle injections are a non-invasive treatment, meaning that the recovery time is drastically less than that of a surgical procedure. It involves so little downtime, that it is sometimes referred to as a “lunchtime” procedure, as in you can have it done on your lunch break and resume to your working day straight after!
