Anti Wrinkle Injections Dr Kates Aesthetics

You’ve just had your injectables done and you’re loving the results. Your skin looks smoother, plumper, and more youthful. But you’re also wondering how you can make the results last as long as possible.

Here are three tips that can help you extend the life of your injectables:

1. Introduce medical-grade skincare

Just like you know you shouldn’t eat highly processed junk foods (we can sometimes be guilty), you shouldn’t put cheap or ineffective and sometimes harmful skincare products on your face. Medical-grade skincare products are formulated with higher concentrations of active ingredients than over-the-counter products, making them more effective in addressing a variety of skin concerns. Healthy skin responds very differently to aesthetic treatments. The recovery and downtime is much less and the end results are much better and longer lasting.  

When choosing medical-grade skincare products, look for products that are:

  • Free of harsh chemicals and fragrances
  • Formulated with ingredients that are scientifically proven to be effective
  • Appropriate for your skin type

One of the best ways to choose medical-grade skincare products is to consult with your aesthetic practitioner. They can help you identify products that are right for your skin and your individual needs.

2. Have a maintenance plan

The key to making your injectables last longer is to have a regular maintenance plan. This means scheduling follow-up appointments with your aesthetic practitioner every few months.

During your follow-up appointments, your practitioner will assess the results of your injectables and determine if you need any additional treatment. They may also recommend other treatments to help you maintain your results, such as medical-grade skincare or facials.

Sticking to a regular maintenance plan will help you get the most out of your injectables and keep your skin looking its best and ultimately protecting your investment.

3. Protect your skin from things that are known to age you

There are a number of things you can do to protect your skin from things that are known to age you, such as:

  • Sun exposure: Sun exposure is one of the leading causes of premature ageing. Be sure to wear sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher every day, even on cloudy days.
  • Smoking: Smoking damages the skin’s collagen and elastin, leading to wrinkles and loss of elasticity. If you smoke, try reducing this habit and even better, cutting it completely.
  • Stress: Stress can contribute to premature ageing. Find healthy ways to manage stress, such as yoga or meditation.

Bonus tip: Stay hydrated

Drinking plenty of water is essential for overall health and well-being, and it can also help your injectables last longer. When you’re dehydrated, your skin becomes dry and brittle, which can make your injectables break down more quickly. Aim to drink eight glasses of water per day.

By following these tips, you can help make your injectables last longer and keep your skin looking youthful and radiant.
