Skin ageing is one of the most common skin problems faced by many. It’s a natural process as you grow older. Yet, the visible fine lines and dry texture can cause distress for some people.
There are many other factors that contribute to skin-ageing aside from your age. It can be caused by unhealthy lifestyle choices, which you need to avoid starting now. Some factors are more manageable, nothing that a proper skincare routine can’t fix. However, when it comes to many cases of skin ageing, it needs solutions that are more skin deep.
As a result, injectable skincare has seen a surge in popularity. You may also have heard it referred to as “dermal fillers” or “facial fillers”. Injectable skincare effectively rejuvenates the skin’s youthful appearance by restoring volume and hydration lost caused by ageing or other factors. It helps minimize issues such as skin folds, lines, wrinkles, and dry skin.
If you are exhausted with your fight with skin ageing, injectable skincare might be the perfect solution for you. But before you go on any further, it helps to know how dermal fillers first started. This way, you keep up-to-date on the latest innovations about this skin solution.
Injectable Skincare: THEN
The earliest form of injectable fillers are said to be used as early as the 1800s. At that time, it wasn’t used as a skincare solution. Instead, medical professionals discover that taking fatty tissue from one area of the body, and injecting it to another area, helps restore volume of the skin. As a result, it was used as treatment for facial defects and scars.
Jump forward to the 1970s, researchers had been done regarding the use of animal collagen in humans. Collagen injections and implants were then introduced. In 1981, purified Bovine collagen became the very first FDA-approved filler for cosmetic injection in the face. Various injectable skincare fillers were developed for the face in the years following, including silicone fillers.
Injectable Skincare: NOW
The beginning of a new century ushered in more modern types of injectable fillers. Contemporary injectable skincare treatments usually use Hyaluronic Acid-based fillers. Hyaluronic Acid occurs naturally in the skin. It is responsible for regulating and retaining water in the skin, keeping it hydrated. Hyaluronic Acid helps nourish the skin and maintain flexibility and elasticity, reducing signs of skin ageing. These were studied and compared to second generation non-bovine collagen to find which was more effective and safer.
The duration of injectable skincare treatment depends on the filler used. Also, various fillers have different effects for different areas, depending on the patient’s condition. It is best to consult with a board certified cosmetic surgeon to know which filler can help you achieve your desired results. One option you can choose from is Sunekos®.
Sunekos® for Injectable Skincare
Sunekos® is an injectable skincare treatment that can stimulate collagen regeneration, which can decrease wrinkle formation and lessen skin ageing. Unlike other filler treatments, Sunekos® uses a combination of six essential Amino Acids with Hyaluronic Acid (HY6AA). This patented formula is unique to Sunekos® , and any slight change can give a different effect or outcome.
During skin ageing, the number of fibroblasts and metabolic activities in your skin reduces, resulting in a lower fibroblast activity in Extracellular Matrix (ECM). The HY6AA patented formula of Sunekos® regenerates the ECM of your skin, stimulating the reproduction of collagen and elastin, the two main structural elements of the tissue. More specifically, it stimulates the production of hyaluronic acid, collagen fibers, and elastic fibers, including Type IV collagen, which is the hardest to produce.
Furthermore, Sunekos® injectable skincare is versatile. It can be applied to different problem areas in the body, such as the face, neck, hands, arms, and under eye area. Sunekos® also addresses various skin problems, including:
- Lack of Collagen and Elastin
- Sagging and severe wrinkles
- Loss of hydration
- Acne scarring
- Dark circles & bags under eyes
- Fine expression lines and wrinkles
Sunekos® has two variants to choose for your skin treatment, Sunekos® 200 and Sunekos® 1200. Discuss with your doctor which treatment option best fits your expectations and goals for your procedure.
