With so many people interested or catching on to beautifying injectables, we focus so much on the treatment itself and forget about maintenance completely. No one really talks about how to get the most out of your injectables since the injection itself is magic enough, isn’t it? While that may be true, there’s always something extra you can do to enhance these nonsurgical treatments because your skin needs continuous care if you want to keep them guessing. We know you’re willing to put in the work if you’ve come this far to get the injections, so get the most for your money and time with a few of our simple tips:
Wear Your Sunscreen
The Beatles song is all about letting the sun shine all around you and it’s alright, but at Spa in the City we say have your UVA-UVB protection ready at all times. Why do you need sunscreen? UV radiation induces collagenase in fibroblasts, which in time causes degradation of collagen, the thing you need to look fresh and wrinkle-free; this is what leads to lines and wrinkles. You want to make sure injectables have time to regenerate what was previously damaged. The only thing you want working beneath the epidermis are injectables and their repair mechanisms, not harmful levels of heat energy. It’s good to get some sun, but you have to protect yourself from damage you can’t always see.
Use Vitamin C Serum
Serums are the hottest thing in skin care right now. All of the top beauty networks and brands will tell you to wash your face, apply your vitamin-C infused serum, and moisturize as usual. Vitamin-C is like a skin warrior that guards your skin against free-radicals, debris and the elements from weakening your cells. Not only does it protect cells, but vitamin-C aids in the repair of these skin cells and boosts collagen production. Anti-aging injectables work on the supportive network of the skin, so help smooth over the process with added protection and get it from both sides. Your skin will feel powerful and young if you just put a little vitamin- C love into your post-injectable plan.
Don’t Workout the Day of Injections
Don’t do it. Remember that. Seriously. It may not seem relevant at first, but if you understand the way your muscles function during workouts, you’ll know why working out after injections isn’t such a good idea. Injectables like Botox and others that focus on anti-aging, need time to settle into the muscles and matrix of the tissues. If you workout immediately following the injection, all the proteins in your body will degrade the ingredients, so it’s almost like you never got them.
Before you head out to get your injectables, it’s best you find an experienced injector that knows technique and application. Just because a spa offers them, doesn’t mean they’re the best at injection. At Spa in the City, we have years of experience in working with men and women to change their look with natural looking results. We know you don’t want to look over done, which is why a skilled hand will give you the best result. Call our reception desk to schedule your appointment at Spa in the City today at (972)-588-4485.
