The battle against ageing is one many of us will experience during our lives. In fact, after an initial period of trying to look older as teens, the rest of our lives are likely to be spent stopping ageing in its tracks. Fortunately, the anti-ageing market is a competitive one, with plenty of lotions, potions and treatments available to help you look younger for longer.
Anti-wrinkle injections, alongside facelifts and neck lifts, are among some of the most popular cosmetic treatments, but are they the best solution for halting the ageing process?
When skincare is no longer enough
During your 20s and 30s, taking good care of your skin is the best defence against the signs of ageing. Some of the most effective anti-ageing ingredients include retinol, glycolic acids and vitamin C, but these ingredients can come at a price when it comes to effective skincare. While cosmetic treatments require a larger upfront investment, they could prove to be better value for money than regular purchases of your favourite serums and creams.
Fast solutions for long-term problems
While good skincare can help with the signs of ageing, it’s not always a solution for stubborn areas or for those deep lines that need filling. While they can take a few days to settle in, anti-wrinkle injections offer a semi-permanent fast solution that can easily turn back the clock.
See the results for yourself
Having anti-wrinkle injections is a much subtler treatment than you realise; just take a look at the many celebrities who’ve had cosmetic treatments. It’s even becoming more popular amongst your own networks, with the affordability and availability of treatments improving in recent years. Results are much better than they used to be, with options for more subtle treatments to ease you into things, helping you to ‘grow old gracefully’.
Even if you’re on the fence, it’s worth getting a consultation and finding out more about the procedure to help you decide if it’s the right move for you. You could also combine anti-wrinkle injections with other treatments such as a neck lift for an even more effective anti-ageing treatment. The good news about this treatment is that results aren’t permanent, so if you decide that it’s not for you, it will wear off in time.
In the fight against ageing, it’s good to know there are several weapons you can have up your sleeve. From fixing minor imperfections to making long-lasting changes, it seems as though it really could be possible to stop ageing in its tracks.
