The Latest Treatment in Fighting the Signs of Aging
If you’re concerned about the signs of aging, then you’ll be glad to know that there is a new injectable treatment that may help. Unfortunately, due to government regulations we cannot give its name, therefore, for the purpose of this blog we are going to call it Liquid Honey. What we can tell you is; who it’s for, how it works, the benefits, patient suitability, areas that we can use it on, the results you can achieve, and the cost. Read on to learn more.
Liquid honey works similarly to a hydrating bio remodeling treatment. This new injectable treatment is made from hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance our bodies produce. Hyaluronic Acid can help improve collagen production, increase skin elasticity, reduce wrinkles, and give your skin a plumper appearance.
This treatment is ideal for our Australian skin because it has the ability to help repair skin that has been damaged by our harsh sun. Sun damage contributes to poorer skin quality, resulting in crepey neck and facial skin.
This treatment is the first of its kind, providing distinct levels of hybrid ingredients to hydrate from within. It bio-stimulates collagen, elastin, and fat cells, actively treating both skin laxity and skin tone loss. It aids in the preservation of soft tissue plumpness. Overall, the skin appears more luminous.
What is this new ‘Liquid Honey’ treatment?
It’s a new injectable treatment that is made from hyaluronic acid. It has been specifically designed to treat signs of ageing such as wrinkles and skin laxity by deeply hydrating the skin. Unlike other injectable treatments, this does not require an anaesthetic as it is injected into very superficial layers of skin.
Who is it for?
This treatment is suitable for both men and women who have concerns about the signs of ageing. It can help fight wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin on both the face and neck.
How does it work?
This treatment works by injecting small amounts of hyaluronic acid into the skin. This helps to boost collagen production which in turn increases skin elasticity. The hyaluronic acid also attracts water to the injection area, which helps to hydrate the skin and give it a plumper appearance.
There are many benefits associated with these injections, including:
- Reduction in visible wrinkles and fine lines
- Tighter, firmer skin
- An Increase in collagen production
- Improvement to skin elasticity
- Hydrated, plumper skin
Who is liquid honey suitable for?
Anyone that wants their skin to look more luminous, hydrated and elastic following the loss of collagen. Although we find that is it typically those 30+, that seek this treatment. However, it may not be suitable if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. You should also avoid treatment if you have an active infection or inflammation in or around the injection site.
Areas that can undergo treatment
There are several common injection sites for liquid honey, many are on the face including; the cheeks, forehead, jawline and neck.
How many treatments do you need?
The number of treatments a patient requires will depend on individual goals and concerns. However, most people require 2-3 treatments. With approximately 4-6 weeks between treatments for optimal results.
Is there any downtime?
There is minimal to no downtime for this treatment. This is due to the fact that the treatment injections only penetrate into superficial layers of skin. However, you may experience some redness and swelling at the injection site immediately after treatment, but this should resolve within a few hours.
When can I see the results?
Most people notice an improvement in their skin quality after just one treatment. However, optimal results are typically achieved after 2-3 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
Cost of treatment
The cost of liquid honey will depend on your individual goals and concerns as well as how many treatments a patient requires. We usually recommend around 2-3 treatments for optimal results. At Coco Ruby Skin and Anti Ageing, one treatment costs $800. So, if you’re concerned about the signs of aging such as wrinkles, skin laxity and texture then you may want to consider this new treatment.
