Is there an alternative to injectables?

-Mar 5, Rachel Richards, Beauty -

If you're squeamish about facial injections and fillers there are many alternatives out there to help you keep your skin looking and feeling its best.

When it comes to tackling the niggly signs of skin ageing, like frown lines, wrinkles and dull-looking skin, injections and cosmetic procedures are often the first place people turn to reverse the visible effects of time.

Whilst there is absolutely nothing wrong with this, some people may feel squeamish about procedures that involve facial injections. There’s nothing wrong with this either! There are actually many alternatives out there to help you keep your skin looking and feeling its best.

  1. CACI treatments – this non-surgical wrinkle-busting option is perfect for those who are looking for an instant boost. CACI treatments work by transmitting tiny electrical currents through muscles and bones in the target areas, helping to lift them to their original position. These treatments work with your body’s natural bioelectrical system to lift the skin and rejuvenate the complexion.
  2. Retinol products – whilst these might not be the best for everyone’s skin (sensitive skin sufferers should stay well away), retinol products can be great for instant illumination. Working to smooth out the skin’s surface and promote skin’s natural collagen production, retinol is a popular choice to add in to your nightly skincare regime.
  3. Chemical peels – chemical peels are another popular option when it comes to rejuvenating the skin’s appearance. Whilst it might take slightly longer to see the results post-treatment, you’ll soon notice smoother and brighter-looking skin.
  4. Eat for your skin – beauty comes from the inside too, and the nutrients you eat can have a big impact on your skin’s appearance. Colourful fruit and veg and plenty of protein should ensure your skin stays plump and young-looking.
