Injectables, and not just botox, are becoming part of men and women’s self-care routine.
Marble countertops, velvet chairs, edgy artwork and custom welcome mats etched with the company logo greet you as you walk through the doors of Skinlab Injectables. This cutting edge injectable beauty bar has locations in Norman and Nichols Hills; both are designed with an aesthetic that is far from your typical medical office.
“Almost every adult of a certain adult age can benefit from and afford injectables,” said
Rebekah Voda, Manager of Skinlab.
When it comes to aging, a focus on preventative measures by society has contributed to the
popularity of injectable procedures. “Correcting already settled fine lines is harder and more costly than preventing the lines from forming in the first place. Preventative Botox is key,” Voda said.
The hashtags #findthefountain and #loseyourlines can often be seen in educational posts on Skinlab Injectables social media. They aim to educate their followers on the many different uses of injectables, both medical and cosmetic, while also informing them of the array of services they offer. Their fast-growing Instagram account @skinlab_injectables is nearing 10,000 followers.
Skinlab recommends first time Botox treatments begin between the ages of 24 and 30. The prevention of aging proves long term maintenance to be more manageable. Botox, for the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles, is recommended every 90 days.
“We take pride in our reputation of providing clients with a “natural look,” Voda said. “The compliment many of our clients say they get the most is that their skin looks amazing. People have a hard time pin-pointing
exactly what has changed, they just know it’s obvious their friend or loved one looks younger, refreshed, and rejuvenated.”
Injectables are on the rise not only in Oklahoma, but nationwide. In 2018, injections of Botox — the No. 1 aesthetic procedure since 1999, according to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery — were up 16.3 percent from the year before. Fillers showed a significant increase in 2018 as well.
Botox is being used for more than just cosmetic justice. Skinlab has seen a significant increase of clients treating an array of non-cosmetic ailments such as migraine headaches, teeth clenching, hyperhidrosis (excessive underarm sweating), and several others.
According to The American Society of Plastic Surgeons, there has been over a 300 percent increase over the last decade of men who received “Brotox.” Botox and PRP Therapy (Hair Restoration) are the top two services for male clientele at Skinlab. The summer months usually see an increase in both female and male clients. .
In addition to injectable services, Skinlab clients are also incorporating IV Drip Therapy and PRP Therapy into their self-care routines. Drip Therapy, also known as Hydration Therapy, consists of a custom blend of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants delivered intraveneously (IV). With Drip
Therapy, hydration and nourishments occur at the cellular level (hydration from the inside out.)
While IV Drip therapy is used to heal the body, injections of the body’s own PRP is used to stimulate hair growth, increase collagen production, and improve the healing of joints and ligaments. PRP is an all-natural
