Cosmetic injectables have been popular for many years, but there has been a recent increase in the number of men and women opting for anti wrinkle injections and dermal fillers to freshen their appearance, get the signs of ageing under control or to get a more chiselled jawline or fuller lips. So if you are curious about cosmetic injectables, here are the things you need to know.
Anti Wrinkle Injections
Anti-wrinkle injections are used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles formed by repeated contractions from facial expressions which form crow’s feet and frown lines. It requires no down time and patients can see results within 7-10 days. Men often need more units than woman as their muscular structure tends to be strong than women, requiring greater dosage to relax muscles.
So whether you are back on the dating scene after a long time or competing with younger candidates for a job, anti-wrinkle injections are a stress-free and cost-effective answer to looking your very best. This treatment is essentially a confidence booster that can result in many benefits.
Dermal fillers are also common cosmetic treatment among males, especially those who have experienced a loss of facial volume. However, this treatment should be used sparingly among males, as too much volume on the face may make men look more feminine. Again, the procedure requires no down time and results can be seen within 10-14 days.
However, do not confuse dermal fillers with anti-wrinkle injections. While both procedures involve injections, anti-wrinkle injections around the forehead and the corner of your eyes are used to stop muscle movement that is responsible for forming wrinkles. Dermal fillers have a volumising, smoothing effect. Combining anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers can produce a youthful appearance.
