Is 'cleanse, tone, moisturise' enough?
You’ve had the same routine for years:
But those pesky wrinkles aren’t moving and continue to gain ground across your forehead and around your eyes. It seems a new wrinkle pops up each week, and nothing is helping to keep them in control – which is when you might decide to turn to the professionals for help.
Anti-wrinkle injections are becoming one of Australia’s most popular treatments, with more than 33,000 injections administered each year.
According to the Informed Beauty report, 80 per cent of anti-wrinkle injection users believe that anti-wrinkle injections are better value for money than anti-ageing creams and moisturisers. In addition, close to half (46 per cent) think they have spent more on anti-ageing creams and moisturisers than they have on anti-wrinkle injections over the course of a year.
The Informed Beauty report also found that after an anti-wrinkle injection, the majority of users agree they look younger (87 per cent) and feel more confident (87 per cent).
That said, beauty treatments like this require a certain amount of pre-treatment research and preparation to ensure that you’re properly informed.
