Looking natural, not frozen with injectables is possible!

Aesthetic medicine is enjoying its golden era, and the range of products available now-a-days, to fight ageing and enhance beauty, are quite impressive, allowing smart options for the beauty enthusiasts to deliver beautiful as well as NATURAL results.

The aesthetic trends and choices have been unfortunately affected by the previous generation when people were looking for an overdone and over stretched results. The concerns and misunderstanding since then, created a rejection of aesthetic injections from women and men for many years.

In the past 10 years, the beauty industry and aesthetic doctors have been working very hard to clear those concerns and encourage a NATURAL look. To succeed in this direction, consumers, doctors and the aesthetic industry should all follow the saying “Less Is More” and “Natural Is The New Gold Standard In Aesthetics”.

Everyone knows that using toxins such as Botulinum Toxin freeze the wrinkles, or using hyaluronic acid fillers help to refresh, renew and rejuvenate signs of ageing; the result of these injections can still look unnoticeable if done properly by an aesthetic doctor. Here is what you need to know about those two injections.

Botulinum toxin

Botulinum toxin is a natural, purified protein that is used to temporarily relax facial muscles that cause expression lines and wrinkles. It is the result of many decades of studies and has been used extensively in medicine. It is the safest product, and it is certified in the medical and cosmetic field.

It is important to clarify that there is no downtime associated to the treatment as well as no long-term side effects of having wrinkle injections, meaning patients can resume their usual activities straight away. Patients will be able to see the results of the injection after 4 to 7 days and will last between 4 to 6 months upon individuals.


We have naturally plentiful amounts of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) in our body. As we age, the quantities we store diminish which cause the skin to become dryer, thinner and result in the apparition of lines and wrinkles.

The treatment of wrinkles with dermal filler will usually involve injecting Hyaluronic Acid through a tiny needle. The discomfort is minimal, as the treatment does not take long to perform. However, each aesthetic doctor has their own technique and it is important to see before and after images of the professional, to make sure this is the type of result you are looking for. Most of the practitioner’s offer a natural result, however, the only drawback to this treatment is that most of them offer the same look instead of considering the facial morphology of their patient.

The results are seen immediately after the treatment. With this treatment, patients might experience slight bruising or swelling. This should not persist much longer than a day or two, but is easily coverable with makeup. The effects last around 18 months.

Other options

Skinbooster, mesotherapy or PRP facial are other options which deliver some incredible and NATURAL results while restoring a youthful skin and facial contour. These are great options when you are reaching thirty to keep your skin hydrated and fresh, and to delay the use of botulinum toxin or filler.

The Skinbooster™ treatment involves microinjections of concentrated Hyaluronic Acid (HA) which give a long-lasting moisture into the deep layers of the skin. Those tiny injections improve the skin quality and elasticity and puts back structure and firmness into the skin for natural luminosity, as well as smoothing and nourishing tired, deflated, or dry skin.

Mesotherapy injections deliver nourishing components of 100% Hyaluronic Acid (HA), the same substance as Skinbooster but less concentrated. Most mesotherapy treatments on the market offer the combination of Vitamins within their treatment, however, at Epilium & skin, we believe using pure hyaluronic acid reduces the risk of allergy to vitamins and gives a quicker result with long-term rejuvenating effects. The mesotherapy is injected to a deep layer of the skin, where cell repair and growth happens. This is ideal for pre- or post any anti-ageing injections.

Finally, to rejuvenate and stimulate the cell production turn over, there is the PRP facial, (AKA Vampire facelift). The treatment involves drawing blood from your arm, centrifuging the blood to separate the platelets in, and then injecting them into your skin with a fine needle to the deep layers of the skin. This facial helps to improve the appearance of wrinkles, scars, sun damage and even dark circles under their eyes.

Nowadays, there are vast options available to men and women who are looking to stop the ageing process in a non-invasive way. People tend to be more and more conscious with the products they inject into their body and trends show that more natural the products are, safer the clients feel. Fat transfer injections in the face have made incredible improvements and developments in the past decade, offering natural and permanent results to patients.

Maybe this is the way non-invasive treatments should aim to within the next decade ?
