Turning Back the Clock with Non-Invasive Cosmetic Procedures
Not ready to go under the knife? You’re not alone! While we all want to look younger, the idea of plastic surgery can be scary. It could also be unnecessary for achieving your dream look. While face lifts used to the be the standard one-size-fits-all solution for anti-ageing, there are now an incredible range of non-invasive cosmetic procedures that can transform you.
You’ve probably heard of the ultra popular anti-wrinkle injections. It is one of the most widely researched medicines in the world and it’s one of the most popular injectables in Sydney and around the world. Dermal fillers are another popular option and a great anti-ageing fix.
While people often confuse dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections, they serve two distinctly different purposes. Here’s a quick and easy guide to our two favourite non-invasive anti-ageing procedures.
Best Non-Invasive Cosmetic Procedure: Dermal fillers
As you age, your face slow starts to lose collagen. A round, youthful face gradually begins to look sallow and sunken – but that doesn’t have to be the case! Dermal fillers, also known as facial fillers, can erase fine lines and wrinkles by plumping up your face. These incredible injectables replace lost collagen for a revitalised look. Best of all, by filling hallow areas with collagen, you stimulate your body’s natural collagen production.
Best Non-Invasive Cosmetic Procedure: Anti-Wrinkle Injections
Anti-wrinkle injections is the most commonly performed non-surgical treatment worldwide and it’s quickly become the gold standard in anti-ageing. Since being approved by the US government way back in 2002, its use has soared across Australia. While it was first used to treat fine lines around the eyebrows, it’s become to the go-to fix for a range of issues including ageing prevention.
Since anti-wrinkles injections can both treat and prevent facial wrinkles, they are a popular choice with men and women of all ages. This powerful procedure works by targeting muscles, which are then relaxed by the injection.
Which Is Best for Me?
To determine which type of non-invasion anti-ageing procedure is best you, it’s important to understand what type of wrinkles you are dealing with. In the world of cosmetic surgery, we often talk about static wrinkles and dynamic wrinkles.
Static wrinkles are the type of wrinkles that you can still see in your face when you aren’t making a facial expression whereas dynamic wrinkles are only visible when you are making a facial expression. For example, you may see wrinkles around your mouth when you smile. If you see these wrinkles after you stop smiling, they are static wrinkles. If they disappear when you make a neutral expression, these are called dynamic wrinkles.
Dermal fillers are the best option for static wrinkles. The fillers can replenish the sunken area of your face and gloss over wrinkles. On the other hand, if you have dynamic wrinkles or are looking to prevent ageing before it happens, anti-wrinkles injections are a great choice.
Of course, many men and women opt to get both dermal fillers and anti-wrinkles injections. Using them in conjunction is a great, multi-pronged approach that can prevent and eliminate wrinkles so that you look amazing today and ten years from now.
