The Synergistic Power of Skincare and Injectables

Skincare and injectables, when combined, create a synergistic effect that amplifies the benefits of each treatment.

This is good news for practitioners and great news for their patients. Here’s why…

  1. Skincare treatments can enhance the outcomes of injectables:
    Injectable treatments can address specific concerns, such as wrinkles and lines, but skincare treatments can improve the overall health and appearance of the skin.
    Combining the two approaches can help to maximise the results of injectables and create a more natural-looking appearance.
    By addressing the underlying causes of skin aging, such as sun damage, pollution, and dehydration, skincare treatments can prepare the skin for optimal results from injectables. For example:

    • Well-hydrated skin better retains the effects of hyaluronic acid fillers
    • A healthy skin barrier allows for smoother application of Botox
    • Skin that looks healthy as well as plump/reduced lines means a more natural-looking result
  2. Skincare can prolong the effects of injectables:
    By maintaining the skin’s overall health and vitality, skincare treatments can slow down the breakdown of collagen and elastin, the proteins that give skin its structure. This, in turn, helps prolong the results of injectables and keeps your skin looking its best for longer.

  3. Skincare provides additional benefits:
    Skincare goes beyond simply complementing injectables; it offers a range of additional benefits, including:

    • Hydration: Replenishes moisture, leaving skin supple and plump.
    • Protection from sun damage: Shields skin from harmful UV rays, preventing premature aging and wrinkles.
    • Relief from skin conditions: Addresses issues like acne, rosacea, and eczema, promoting a clear and healthy complexion.
    • Improved overall skin health: Enhances skin texture, elasticity, and overall radiance.
  4. More comprehensive service:
    Offering skincare treatments means that you have a fuller service for your clients. This can help to attract new patients, to retain existing ones and to increase the amount of treatments your patients are able to purchase by providing them with a complete skincare solution.
    Patients are increasingly looking for providers who offer a comprehensive approach to skincare. By offering both injectables and skincare treatments, providers can attract new patients who are looking for a one-stop shop for their cosmetic needs.

Embrace a Holistic Approach to Beauty

The combination of injectable treatments and skincare is a powerful approach to achieving and maintaining a youthful appearance. By offering your clients options for addressing both the signs of aging and the underlying causes of skin aging, practitioners can enable them to maximise the results of their injectable treatments and enjoy long-lasting, natural-looking results.

This is good news for clients and great news for your business.

Skincare training courses

SkinViva Training Academy now offers skincare courses alongside its well-known medical injectable treatment training.

The company first added skincare courses in 2021 after seeing feedback from delegates who were struggling to find high quality skincare training elsewhere.

Unlike many skincare training courses, ours are aimed at more qualified or experienced practitioners. In the case of skincare courses, this means either having a medical background or else NVQ Level 3 beauty therapy or equivalent qualification.

SkinViva Training Academy’s skincare offering is based on treatments that offer noticeable results and work fabulously well alongside injectable treatments. There is a range of 6 half day courses to choose from:
