If you’ve been contemplating booking a consultation for aesthetic injectables for a while, perhaps you’ve decided to finally follow through in the new year. (After all, there’s no better incentive than an entirely new decade to try something new.) If you’re still on the fence, though, read on: Ahead, five women share why 2020 is the year they intend to try injectables for the first time. Perhaps their stories will inspire you to make that appointment, too.
Injectable wrinkle reducers are used to temporarily smooth the look of moderate to severe wrinkles in certain areas of the face such as the forehead, frown lines, and crow’s feet. They should not be used more frequently than every three months. Like any medical treatment, they have potential risks and side effects. Be sure to talk to a licensed provider to see if they’re right for you.

Why 2020 is her year: “I’ve been putting off injectables for a while now, mainly because of the extra expense it will add to my budget. I am trying to save up to buy a home with my fiancé, but I also feel like 2020 is the year I deserve to treat myself a little. I have been so diligent saving; I’ve resisted so many Zara® purchases and meals out! So, I plan on scheduling my first [consultation] in the first half of next year, ideally before summer.”

Why 2020 is her year: “I was pregnant plus breastfeeding for two years total, and I swear mom life has taken its toll! I’ve been counting down the days until I can transition our babe to solid foods — then I can finally get injectable wrinkle reducers! [A consultation for] injectable wrinkle reducers [is] going to be my holiday gift to myself when I get back from a New Year’s trip to my parents’ place.”
Location: Dallas, Texas
Why 2020 is her year: “I’m a mom of three, 57 years young, and just divorced my husband of 35 years. Our kids are all out of college now, and we’d both been unhappy for a long time. We figured we’d separate and find new paths that bring joy to our lives. For me, that meant moving back home to Texas after living in California for 37 years! 2020 is all about me; as I start this new chapter, I’m thinking I’ll [try something new]!”

Why 2020 is her year: “Honestly, it’s just time! I’ve been waiting to get injectables for a few years now, and my lines aren’t getting any less prominent. I actually already had a consultation a few weeks ago to understand what the cost would be, and I am definitely going to make an injectable wrinkle reducer appointment for the beginning of next year.”
Occupation: Social Media Manager
Location: Manhattan, New York
Why 2020 is her year: “My older sister has been raving about injectables for years. I remember being in high school when I first heard her talk about them, and I remember seeing her awesome results. About two years ago, I started noticing our family’s Irish genes saying hello in the form of deep forehead wrinkles. At the time, I put off injectables because of the cost. However, I might finally try injectable wrinkle reducers in 2020. I have my 10-year high school reunion, and I haven’t seen many of my high school acquaintances since moving to NYC years ago. I also have my sister’s wedding next year; obviously, we’ll take a million forever photos! I might finally try injectable wrinkle reducers in 2020.”
