A few years back, getting poked in the face with needles was unheard of. But now, in their quest for youth and beauty, thousands of people stand in line outside beauty clinics waiting for their turn. Cosmetic injection procedures have become the quick fix solution to some of the common dermatological issues that come with age. From facial lines or wrinkles to folds under the neck to eye bags, there’s an endless list of problems that can be eliminated using cosmetic injections.
Want to know more about these procedures? Here are 4 cosmetic injection procedures expected to soar in 2020.
Scientifically known as Botulinum toxin (Type A), Botox is the most common type of injection that many people prefer—probably owing to its instant results and minimal side effects. Botox is used mainly to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and other fine lines on the face.
Save for a few pink dots around the problematic areas, no one can tell that you’ve just received Botox injections. It may take a few days for the dots to fade away but if yours was a fairly average case, a day is enough to see the marks fade away completely.
This is another type of cosmetic injection often confused with Botox. Collagen injections are used mainly to fill a specific area with collagen in a bid to trigger your own body to produce its own collagen. In turn, the collagen helps plump up the face and lift any saggy skin on the neck and face areas. Botox is then injected under your skin to reduce frown lines and bring a smoother appearance.
- Lip Fillers
There are types of fillers that are designed to sit under your skin to give it volume or make it look fuller. One such example includes hyaluronic acid used mainly as lip filler. It can also be used on other parts of your face to produce the same effects. The fillers can be used to raise the cheekbones, smoothen the lip surface, reduce the appearance of eye bags/hollows and folds located on the forehead among other parts of the face and neck.
Kybella is a deoxycholic acid that’s injected below the surface of the skin in a bid to help dissolve bits of fat. Mainly used to dissolve stubborn fat under the chin and neck areas, this cosmetic injection procedure is favored for its long-lasting effects.
However, this procedure also requires a longer recovery time compared to other procedures. The average recovery time is reported to be around 21 days, during which the patient may experience extensive swelling and difficulty swallowing. This is essentially a small price to pay considering its permanent results.
Cosmetic injection procedures have proven worthwhile among people aged between 20 years and 40 years old. Their popularity has even earned approval from government institutions. Wondering which procedure to opt for next? Choose from the 4 procedures listed above and say hello to a smooth, flawless face. To avoid disappointment, it is advisable to have all your cosmetic injection procedures done by a qualified professional from a certified clinic.
