More and More People Are Getting Injections– We Briefly Explain Why
1. Truth: Injectables can have an anti-aging effect.
Contrary to popular belief among disbelievers, injections do actually work. Botulinum Toxin (Botox, Dysport, Xeomin) paralyzes the muscle to prevent dynamic wrinkles while making sure that existing lines don’t get any deeper. Hyaluronic Acid Fillers (such as Restylane and Juvederm) stimulate collagen production.
2. Myth: “Getting injected will make you look like you’ve had work done”.
This is a common misconception among many people. Like a lot of things which require professional handling, injecting Botox, Fillers and anything else similar requires you to be injected by experts to get the best results. Think of it this way: It should always come down to how it’s done, not what’s done. You wouldn’t want a car salesman fixing or maintaining your engine, right? You’d want the experienced certified professional mechanic doing that.
Furthermore, getting injected should be about maintaining and rejuvenating your natural appearance– not about making yourself look like a completely different person.
3. Truth: These products are safe!
Fun fact: Botulinum toxin was approved by the FDA back in 1989 and has been used in the cosmetic industry for almost 3 decades! Additionally, allergic reactions to neurotoxins are super rare (but of course, always tell your injector if you have extensive drug allergies!). Fillers such as Restylane, Juvederm and others use sugar molecules (a stabilized form of Hyaluronic acid). To make sure you get the safest experience though, ALWAYS go to reputable practices that use REAL FDA-approved products.
Still not sure? Let the numbers speak!
There have been over 7 million+ injectable procedures performed in 2016, alone! And if you’re still not convinced about their effectiveness and safeness, you can always set up a consultation today to learn more about these injectables!
