Dr Tiina Meder in Dazed Digital explains the benefits of no-needle skincare compared to Botox and the like:
The first pro of no-needle skincare solutions is the absence of a needle: no fear, no potential side effects, and no contraindications for pregnant and breastfeeding women, as well as those with chronic health conditions. The second pro is that no-needle solutions provide a great alternative for those wanting soft and natural looking results. Injectables are great at eliminating wrinkles but no-needle solutions act more globally, treating wrinkles, as well as dehydration, pigmentation, and acne.
People are looking for solutions that give them more control over the change in their appearance. Non-surgical skincare solutions provide a more natural look compared to their poker-face-inducing counterparts. Non-invasive treatments don’t eliminate all signs of ageing but reduce them significantly, making you look like ‘you’ve aged well’.
Dr. Meder also explains that while injectables act faster, their results last less than topical solutions.
Botox will provide results in a couple of days and those results will last for four months, five if you’re one of the lucky ones. Whereas a no-needle anti-wrinkle treatment will take around five weeks to show results, but those results will last six months or more. Injectables provide an immediate result, whereas topical solutions will interact with your skin day by day, week by week, changing patterns of age.
