Quick fix injectables: Getting ready for the holiday season
19 Dec 2020
The end of the year is finally here! Now’s the time to pull on your party shoes and shake your tailfeather. Or not. You might just want to kick back and relax with your nearest and dearest. Either way, the holiday season is a social one and you’ll want to look and feel good, regardless of how you spend your break. Thing is, if you’ve had a wild year filled with unprecedented stress, it takes a toll on your face. All you’d have to do is sit in an endless Zoom meeting in unflattering lighting to suddenly notice how lines have turned into wrinkles. Or how a once plump face has become a little gaunt.
Happily, if you’re feeling like you need a little refresh, there are lots of no downtime, “quick fix” injectables treatments that can help you get your glow back!
Wrinkles be gone!
We’re all going to get wrinkles but we don’t have to live with them. If you’ve lines on your face that are caused by a repetitive muscle movement – think frown lines and crow’s feet – you’ll be a great candidate for wrinkle-relaxing injections. These quick fix injectables will relax the muscles that are responsible for the movement causing the wrinkle to dramatically soften if not disappear!
What’s great about wrinkle-relaxing injections is that they work fast. The treatment itself can literally be done in less than five minutes. You can then go back to work with nobody ever being the wiser that you’d had it. Then, over the course of a few days, you’ll see the effects as the targeted muscle gets weaker and weaker. Eventually, after about ten days, it’ll be at its peak effect and you’ll feel like a new, refreshed-looking version of you. Aside from looking great for the holidays, you’ll get to enjoy your new, smoother-look for around three to four months, maybe even a bit longer.
Volume in a flash
Another type of artfully-placed injectable that can help you freshen up in a flash is dermal filler. These are gel-like liquids that are injected just beneath the surface of your skin to restore or increase volume. The most popular kind all contain hyaluronic acid, a mega-moisturising cushiony gel-like substance that occurs naturally in your skin.
As we age, our natural hyaluronic acid supply starts to diminish. This results in a loss of volume and an increase in wrinkling. However, if we replace it using dermal fillers, you can plump up your skin within minutes. Think more pronounced cheeks, fuller-looking lips and a softening of lines around the mouth. In fact, adding a little volume to the upper half of your face can create a little lift in the lower half. It’s a great way to soften nasolabial lines – those folds that run from the sides of your nose down towards your chin.
Unlike wrinkle-relaxing injections, the results you’ll get from dermal filler are instant. The moment you walk out your aesthetic doctor’s office, you’ll look and feel like the very best version of you! Better yet, depending on the type of dermal filler used, the results can last for up to a year.

They take mere minutes to administer yet can deliver dramatic results. So, what are you waiting for?
