The fears around cosmetic injections surface from the countless celebrity mishaps and the simply unappealing sound of the word “Botox”, but the more educated you are, the more interested you’ll become.
Here’s everything you need to know, to set the record straight about cosmetic injections;
What are cosmetic injections?
Cosmetic injections are compounds that, when injected, bind themselves to muscle receptors and decrease the nerves’ ability to trigger muscle contractions that cause wrinkles. As a result, the appearance of wrinkles are reduced, through the relaxation of the muscles.
How long does it last?
Over time your muscle receptors regenerate, so the results aren’t permanent. The effects of cosmetic injections last about three to four months, and, on average, cosmetic injections can take one to 10 days to show visible results.
Where can it be used?
Cosmetic injections are largely used on the face, particularly the ‘crow’s feet’ eye area, glabella creases between eyes, eyebrow furrows and forehead wrinkles. But cosmetic injections are not purely used for the purpose of wrinkles. When injected in the jawline, injections can counter bone loss, and correct downturned lips when injected in the lip! Even more surprisingly, injections can interfere and stop sweat and odour too, so another common area is the armpits!
Is it right for me?
Cosmetic injections, despite common belief, aren’t often used to change the appearance of one’s face. Rather, they are used as a maintenance tool, to keep you looking the same and unaffected by age by preventing wrinkles. Most people start cosmetic injections in their late 20s or early 30s, and quality-clinics will often urge clients not to become aggressive and excessive with the number of treatments.
What happens after?
After receiving cosmetic injections, it is safe to go on with your day! It is only recommended to wait 40 minutes before doing activities to avoid bruising. As for down- time, needle marks will usually take only minutes to fade!

Anti-wrinkle treatments, whether used at home or in the clinic, have always been a very popular choice for anyone looking to improve their appearance. Targeting lines and wrinkles that appear with age is an effective way to look younger, fresher and more care-free.
One of the best forms of anti-wrinkle treatments can be achieved through laser resurfacing – an advanced cosmetic procedure used by professional cosmeticians to reveal fresher, younger-looking skin.
If you’re interested in targeting lines and wrinkles, without any plastic surgery or downtime required, you might like to consider the benefits of this non-surgical anti-wrinkle treatment. Read on to find out more.
For Younger, Healthier Looking Skin
Pearl fractional laser resurfacing, using the advanced Fraxel laser, is an extremely effective method of facial rejuvenation.
Laser resurfacing uses a unique wavelength to gently remove old damaged skin and reveal smoother, more even skin. After just one treatment, you’ll see glowing pearly skin that is the trademark of the Pearl Fractional Laser technique.
Also Addresses Skin Tone and Texture
It’s not just lines and wrinkles that contribute to an aged look. Did you know that uneven or dull skin tone can add years to your appearance? Factors such as age spots, pigmentation, sun damage, blotchiness and scars are all culprits of ageing.
Laser resurfacing addresses these skin tone concerns, as well as lines, refreshing and rejuvenating your face and drastically improving your complexion.
What Does a Laser Resurfacing Treatment Entail?
During your laser resurfacing treatment, a fractional laser will be used to emit thousands of microscopic columns of light. This light is able to safely and effectively remove fine portions of damaged skin – the healthy skin around each perforation then heals quickly and spreads over the tiny holes, significantly improving your overall complexion.
The Fraxel laser is ‘fractional’ because it intensively treats tiny areas of the skin without damaging surrounding healthy skin, reducing healing time and stimulating the skin’s natural healing process to create new healthy tissue.
Watch Your Skin Continue to Improve
One of the best things about laser resurfacing is that you’ll see your skin continue to improve over a period of time. With results evident one week after your treatment, you’ll see maximum results around 1-3 months later as your skin becomes even more radiant and healthy.
