Injectable treatments have progressively become a convenient alternative to more traditional cosmetic surgical procedures, especially for those seeking the perfect anti-ageing solution. The ability to restore a youthful complexion or revitalise ageing skin using relatively non-invasive treatments with little downtime is appealing to many.
Here we will cover many of your burning injectables questions including the different types, indications, regulations, as well as some of the benefits.
Types of injectable treatments and how they work
Injectable treatments for facial lines and wrinkles
Facial lines and wrinkles form following natural, age-related volume loss in the dermis along with repetitive contraction and relaxation of muscles in the face. Anti-wrinkle injections can help reduce the extent of facial wrinkles by either replacing the lost volume or by inhibiting the contraction of overactive facial muscles.
- Dermal fillers are an ideal solution to replacing the lost volume, moisture and elasticity in ageing skin. Hyaluronic acid, the main component of dermal filler, is a naturally occurring resident of the skin that binds tightly to water molecules to keep the skin hydrated, plump and looking vibrant.
- Anti-wrinkle injections that temporarily relax facial muscles are used to eradicate fine lines and reduce deep-set wrinkles in many problem areas of the face including laughter lines, forehead lines, crows-feet and bunny lines.
Dermal fillers can also be used to alter and enhance the shape and fullness of the lips. Whether you are looking to make subtle enhancements to thinning lips and smoothen lip lines or make more significant adjustments to the contours of the lips, the DestinationSkin experts are on hand to tailor your lip filler treatments to compliment your desires. You can read more about the range of popular shapes and styles that are achievable with lip fillers in our dedicated blog here.

Which areas can I get injectables?
Anti-ageing injectable treatments are remarkably versatile and can be used to combat a range of concerns. Some commonly treated areas include:
- Crow’s feet
- Marionette lines
- Nasolabial folds
- Lip lines
- Bunny lines
Who can get injectable treatments?
The adaptability of injectable treatments mean that they are suitable for a wide range of people to achieve a variety of results.
There are however some important age-related restrictions. Recent changes made to legislation in England now make it illegal to administer any cosmetic filler treatments to anybody under the age of 18. This legislation applies to any treatment intended to alter the appearance of the recipient but does not affect any treatment required for a medical need that is performed under the direction of a doctor.
