Preventative Anti-Wrinkle Injections: What Are They & When To Start

Just like you wear sunscreen to prevent sun damage, you can now turn to anti-wrinkle injections in hopes to prevent deep fine lines or wrinkles in the future. Preventative anti-wrinkle injections, also known as baby anti-wrinkle injections, are becoming a new beauty routine addition for millennials – and for good reason!

Keep reading to learn more about this treatment, including how it differs from traditional anti-wrinkle injections and when to start.

Preventative Anti-Wrinkle Injections Vs. Traditional Anti-Wrinkle Injections

Preventative anti-wrinkle injections are basically an entry-level treatment for those who are starting to notice fine lines and wrinkles. By administering fewer units of anti-wrinkle injections in more spread out areas, it works to slightly ease movement in problem areas to stop deep fine lines and wrinkles from forming. When kept up with, this treatment can decrease the amount of fine lines and wrinkles that you may develop later in life.

Unlike traditional treatment, baby anti-wrinkles injections don’t completely relax the muscle in problem areas, which keeps your face looking natural. This more delicate approach to anti-wrinkle injections is perfect for those who want to get a head start on anti-ageing treatments or ease lighter fine lines, but won’t work well for those who have fully formed fine lines or wrinkles.

The Perfect Time to Start

While anti-wrinkle injections are approved for anyone over the age of 18, we recommend that at this age, you focus more on proper hydration and skincare to look after your skin. If you start noticing fine lines even with a solid skin routine, this might be the time to turn to anti-wrinkle injections! While there’s no ‘magic number,’ this is more likely to start happening in your late 20’s or early 30’s.

Not Only a Treatment for Women

Aging isn’t something that only women are concerned with. Just like going to the gym or eating healthy, men also look for ways to maintain a more youthful appearance – and more and more are turning to anti-wrinkle injections to do so. If you’re a man looking to reverse wrinkles or prevent them from forming in the first place, Victoria’s is the ideal place for discreet and professional treatment.

The Drawbacks

By now, you know the benefits of preventative anti-wrinkle injections include decreasing the chance of deep fine lines and wrinkles in the future and achieving a more smooth complexion. While this seems like the ultimate solution to one of the main skin concerns clients have, it doesn’t come without a few drawbacks.

Here are a couple honest cons of preventative anti-wrinkle injections to help you decide if they are something you should move forward with:

It requires financial and time commitment

Just like any other beauty treatment – from dying your hair to lash extensions to gel manicures – you have to keep up with anti-wrinkle injections to maintain your results. Since this is not a one-and-done kind of treatment, you’ll have to put aside time and money every 3-6 months for preventative anti-wrinkle injections.

The results aren’t obvious

When people in their 30’s or 40’s come in for anti-wrinkle injections, they’re likely to see big improvements to fine lines and wrinkles a couple weeks after treatments. However, with preventative treatment, you won’t have many fine lines to begin with, so it won’t be as obvious of a result.
