Some new studies have suggested that cosmetic injections can actually lead to muscle wastage in the long term, which could in turn lead to (you guessed it) sunken and sagging skin – basically the opposite effect you had in mind when popping into your trusty injector’s office.
The jury’s still out on whether or not this is true as there are conflicting opinions flying about in the debate BUT it has got some thinking twice about cosmetic injectables.
And if you’re now in that latter category of weary skeptics, then this new product might just fill that new void.
It’s called Wrinkle Block and it has been developed by Australian clinical skin care brand freezeframe. In a nutshell, instead of paralysing muscles, the balm uses peptides to ‘block’ wrinkles from forming.
Best of all, it claims to reduce 78 per cent of expression line wrinkles in just 30 minutes and lasts for 48 hours.
Interesting! Sounds like it could be worth a shot if you’re looking for a non-invasive way to get rid of wrinkles.
