Following on from my instagram stories last week, I thought it would be a good time to shed light on some of the advanced injectable treatments available.
You are certainly not alone if you believe Cosmetic Injectables are just for the ‘extra’ women who want abnormally large lips, cheeks and an expressionless face, however this stigma needs to go. Cosmetic Medicine can be used to enhance natural beauty, improved impaired skin integrity, correct facial asymmetries and defects and restore one's self confidence.
One of my favourite ways to utilize cosmetic medicine is to help externally improve the skins integrity. As you will know by now, having read my blog, my soul focus is ensuring people understand the internal/external holistic approach to treating their skin. I may rave on more so regarding internal health and just how important it is, however I feel cosmetic medicine (when utilised appropriately) will always play a part in our external beauty routines.
So sit back, pop on a face mask and grab yourself a glass of kombucha, whilst I open your eyes to the incredible world of cosmetic injectable treatments.
Beauty Boosters! (This is the name allocated to the drug by the cosmetic clinic, as we are unable to advertise drug names in Australia). Beauty Boosters are basically the equivalent to having an extremely high end moisturizer injected into the skin. With these types of treatment we inject Hyaluronic acid (HA), amino acids, antioxidants and minerals, into the papillary dermis of the skin.
HA is naturally present in your body & is what keeps your skin plump, healthy & hydrated. We all go crazy over babies beautiful soft skin, this is because they are born with lots of hyaluronic acid in their skin! But as we age we can lose up to two-thirds of our skin’s HA . As a result, our skin becomes less resilient, thin and those fine lines and wrinkles can begin to show.
Alot of skincare products contain Hyaluronic Acid in them, however topical products aren’t able to penetrate deep enough for HA to give its full benefits. This is where HA injections come in! Unlike traditional dermal fillers, HA fillers are not injected beneath the skin to volumise or shape the face. Instead, they are very fine dermal fillers that are injected into the skin to hydrate and improve skin quality without distorting/altering the shape of the face. The treatment itself is mildly invasive and involves topical numbing to ensure the treatment is as comfortable as possible.The machine used to inject the product utilises a 9 point needle system to deliver a specific amount of hyaluronic acid to a specific depth. The machine sucks up the skin and then injects the needles to provide even distribution of the hyaluronic acid up to 1mm into the skin.
Why is this treatment so amazing? Well the multiple injections activate the fibroblasts promoting new collagen and elastin formation in the skin. This in combination with the delivery of hyaluronic acid injections is the ultimate boost in hydration and glow to the skin! No fake and unnatural appearance, just healthier, glowing skin!
