Anti-wrinkle injections are a quick, affordable and effective way to help prevent the formation of wrinkles.
Whilst the face is in motion the lines that appear are known as dynamic wrinkles, however, repeated movement over time forms deeper lines and folds known as static wrinkles.
Anti-wrinkle injections work to prevent the formation of static wrinkles by stopping the signal between the nerve and muscle.
The decreased movement in the muscle places less stress on the skin helping you maintain a fresh and youthful appearance. This treatment is most effective when used as a preventative measure.
Anti-wrinkle injections are made from a purified protein that temporarily causes facial muscles to relax, instantly softening lines and wrinkles and reducing the severity of visible wrinkles.
Forehead lines are horizontal lines that form through the repetitive use of your eyebrows. Over time these dynamic wrinkles form permanent lines.
Your brows can sometimes appear uneven or asymmetrical. Muscle relaxing anti-wrinkle injections can increase facial symmetry and in certain cases provide a brow lift.
Frown lines are the vertical lines between your eyes and are also known as your ‘glabella lines’. Repeated muscle movement and contraction leads to permanent static wrinkles.
Also referred to as ‘smile lines’ or ‘character lines’. These lines appear on the outside corners of the eyes.
Also known as nose lines, can appear from the constant scrunching of the nose muscle. They appear as horizontal wrinkles which form across the ridge of the nose.
Vertical lip lines appear on the top and bottom lip. They can be defined lines that become apparent with any movement of the mouth.
As we age our chin muscle pulls upward forming a line between the bottom lip and chin in an arch.
This muscle can be relaxed using anti-wrinkle injections taking pressure off the chin and causing the line to soften.
Facial re-shaping is a treatment used on the lower face muscle known as the ‘masseter’, or the muscle of the jaw.
The masseter muscle is used for chewing and if overactive can cause teeth grinding.
This muscle can cause the appearance of a square jaw, and whilst this may be appealing to the male face, many women are seeking a softer more feminine look.
With the use of anti-wrinkle treatments, we can reduce the bulk of this muscle and in turn reduce the appearance of the square jaw, giving the face a more oval appearance.
This treatment may also reduce the severity of teeth grinding.
Depending on the severity of wrinkles, treatments may vary and need to be used in combination with other products.
The leading treatment for wrinkle formation is an anti-wrinkle muscle relaxant that is injected into a targeted area where wrinkles form.
By relaxing the targeted muscle dynamic wrinkles are considerably reduced, and when used as a preventative measure will slow the development of static lines.
At the aesthetic laser centre, we use the leading brands of muscle relaxants which have a wealth of safety data to support them.
The best results are achieved when anti-wrinkle injections are used in combination with dermal fillers in a comprehensive and personalised treatment plan.
