Injectable skincare has become very popular in recent years, thanks to influencers, aesthetic practitioners and doctors alike who took Instagram & TikTok by storm with up close and personal stories of their treatments and more importantly, their results!
Excited to know more about injectable skincare? Here’s a quick explanation to give you a taste of what’s to come:
injectable skincare put simply is various nourishing, smoothing and hydrating ingredients being injected directly into the skin rather than being applied on the skin’s surface as one would with traditional skincare. It’s a new wave, next-generation, game changer.
Why inject skincare?
If we want to really transform the skin, products need to be injected past the thick protective layer where they can actually reach the skin’s dermis to do their work and bring improvements on a cellular level.
Collagen is the skin’s protein, making up 75-80% of the skin and is responsible for its suppleness and firmness. As we age, the production of collagen slows down and this depletion of collagen (together with elastin) is what causes fine lines and wrinkles.
This applies to an array of active ingredients - from hyaluronic acid and vitamins to amino acids and antioxidants. These ingredients must reach below the skin barrier to have any effect on the skin. Cellular renewal starts in the under layers of the skin, as well as collagen and elastin production, hence why we use all kinds of peels and scrubs to shed our top layer of skin and see the new fresh skin beneath.
The more elastin and collagen our body produces, the slower the ageing process will be and the younger our skin will look. This is why injecting skincare is the only way to see any transformative results.
