Injectables help to reduce wrinkles, restore volume and enhance the overall texture of the skin.
Cosmetic injectables, such as anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers, are becoming increasingly popular for their ability to reduce some of the signs of ageing and restore volume to the skin. They are a particularly appealing option for individuals who would like to achieve a more youthful appearance without undergoing surgery because they are minimally invasive and require very little downtime.
Some of our favourite celebrities are open about their use of injectables — read on to find out who can’t resist a little cosmetic help when it comes to maintaining flawless skin…
Actress and TV presenter Kelly Ripa is perhaps best known for her role on the soap opera All My Children and more recently for her work as co-host on the morning talk show Live! with Kelly and Ryan. The TV personality is honest about the fact that she goes for regular anti-wrinkle injections to keep her skin looking youthful and fresh. In an interview with In Touch magazine, Ripa admitted that she likes to have anti-wrinkle injections in her forehead to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines.
Star of the TV show House of Cards Robin Wright openly admitted that she has cosmetic injectables to thank for her flawless skin. 53-year-old Wright is reported as opting for both fillers and anti-wrinkle injections, treatments that she says have improved the overall quality and appearance of her skin as she has gotten older.
Model Cindy Crawford is famous for her good looks, and while good genes and a healthy lifestyle play an important role, the beauty is open about the fact that she uses cosmetic treatments to keep her skin free from wrinkles. Crawford opts for treatments that ensure her results look natural and subtle while achieving a youthful and healthy-looking appearance.
Singer John Mayor also revealed that he went for a series of injectable treatments, although he opted for the procedure for health rather than aesthetic reasons. Mayor was diagnosed with a condition known as granuloma, which causes inflammation of the vocal chords, and injectables were used to help address the issue. The injections worked by freezing the vocal chords, allowing them to heal over time.
What are cosmetic injectables?
There are two main types of cosmetic injectables: anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers. While anti-wrinkle injections cause the muscles in the area of treatment to relax, reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles, dermal fillers restore volume and improve the texture of the skin. The type of injectable that you choose will depend on your particular needs and aesthetic goals. Sometimes a combination of treatments is recommended.
