Safe, affordable and proven to work, treatments such as anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers are now considered your first line of defence when it comes to anti-ageing – a prevention rather than a cure.
There comes a time in life when we start making small adjustments in the name of living (and looking) well for longer. Sunbeds become a no-no; staying hydrated and eating healthily, no-brainers. And we start investing in our skin, too, with a slew of preventive measures – sunscreen and SPF makeup; active-ingredient serums and moisturisers; sonic face massagers; hi-tech facials. If you’ve begun incorporating any of these into your beauty regime, you’re already clued up about the benefits of preventive anti-ageing.
The fact is, no matter what your age, the sooner you take action to prevent the kind of accelerated damage caused by stress, sun exposure and pollution, the longer you will enjoy a youthful-looking complexion – and facial aesthetics are no exception.
Anti-wrinkle injections (like ‘Botox’ and ‘Bocouture’) and dermal fillers now have decades of scientific backing – and because they are safely administered, non-surgical and proven to work, they arguably offer more bang for your buck than luxurious skincare alone. While over-the-counter products lay claim to a host of anti-ageing benefits, the concentrations of ingredients that actually penetrate the skin are minute. Injectable facial treatments, on the other hand, can target specific areas of the face – and because they’re only available on prescription, you can be confident that they will deliver on their smoothing, plumping promises.
Just like good dental care can transform your smile and prevent stained teeth and receding gums, so facial aesthetics can give you a refreshed look while preventing new lines and wrinkles from forming. But which treatment is best for you? At Refresh My Smile, our exclusively-cosmetic sister company, we offer free, no-obligation consultations – so there’s never been a better time to take action on ageing.
