Anti-Wrinkle injections can very effectively relax muscles to remove wrinkles and lines and is the most popular cosmetic procedure performed world wide. They are most commonly used between the eyes (frown lines) around the eyes (crows feet) and across the forehead (worry lines) to give a less tired, worried and stressed appearance. Anti-Wrinkle injections are not painful and will usually begin working in 3-5 days.
Anti-Wrinkle injections are Schedule 4 medications and legally must be prescribed by a medical practitioner. If you’re looking for a safe and effective non surgical method of facial rejuvenation that takes only a few minutes and lasts for many months, anti-wrinkle injections are the perfect choice.
Wrinkles and lines are a natural part of ageing. As you get older your skin becomes thinner, drier and less elastic. We all adopt individual repetitive facial expressions and as a result wrinkles, lines and creases form in your skin. Although genetics are the most important determinant of skin texture, sun exposure and smoking also contribute to the development of wrinkles.
Many facial wrinkles occur when we use our muscles to form facial expressions. The wrinkles formed during facial expression are called “dynamic wrinkles”. When we are young our skin springs back to its initial position at rest but as we get older these wrinkles remain on the skin. The wrinkles and folds present at rest are called “static wrinkles”. This process occurs because natural substances such as collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid that provide the skin with structure and volume decrease with age. This, together with environmental factors such as exposure to sunlight, smoking and stress contribute to the creation of wrinkles and folds.
Otherwise known as “glabellar lines”, these are the lines between your eyebrows. They are the commonest wrinkle area that people want treated as they create a “cross” or worried appearance.
Refers to the lines around the sides of the eyes. Years of smiling will result in the development of these lines. This often results in a tired or aged expression.
Horizontal lines or wrinkles that occur across the forehead below the hairline. They are brought about by the combined effects of gravity and loss of elasticity.
These are the vertical lines that develop over the upper lip over the years and which may be made worse by smoking.
