Anti-Wrinkle injections are the most commonly requested cosmetic procedure in both Men and women. They provide a safe, quick, reliable solution for fine lines and wrinkles with virtually no downtime, creating a youthful, relaxed appearance.
Whenever you laugh, frown, concentrate or squint your facial muscles contract and your skin creases. As you get older your skin loses its elasticity due to numerous factors and those creases deepen. Frown lines between your eyes can make you look angry or worried even when you’re not.
By temporarily relaxing the muscles you use to frown, wrinkle relaxing injections can smooth out those lines, restoring a more youthful, less stressed expression to your face – you may even lose the urge to frown.
What are anti-wrinkle injections commonly used for?
The most commonly treated areas with wrinkle relaxing injections include
- The vertical lines between the eyebrows
- Horizontal forehead lines
- Crow’s feet
More and more research being done shows that keeping wrinkles away is possible and in some cases they can be completely eliminated but must be done at the earliest sign of them appearing. By being proactive and managing your skin properly, it will look and feel healthier as we go through the later years of our lives.
Why have forehead anti-wrinkle treatment?
Raising your eyebrows, concentrating, squinting or frowning – whenever you move your face your forehead muscles contract. After years of frequent contraction, combined with environmental and lifestyle factors – such as exposure to sunlight, smoking and pollution – lines and wrinkles begin to form. No longer just signs of old age, our clients report forehead furrows appearing as early as their 20s, giving them a stressed or worried look.
The main cause of forehead lines is a decrease in the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. These proteins are responsible for our skin’s elasticity, but production drops as we age. Good preventative action includes minimising stress, using an SPF to protect your skin from harmful UV rays all year round, avoiding smoking, drinking plenty of water and following a good skincare routine, especially ensuring the use of a good moisturiser.
We get horizontal forehead lines primarily from our forehead muscles contracting when we raise our eyebrows. This movement is often created by contraction of the frontalis muscle and in some people can create a tired or stressed appearance. As with frown lines, Anti-Wrinkle injections are the best treatment and often gives excellent results, especially when combined with the frown area creating a natural unopposed effect.
Why have Frown Line Anti-Wrinkle Treatment?
Frown lines are vertical lines between and above your eye brow that are the result from frowning, excessive expressions and ageing skin. Similar to forehead lines, as we age these frown lines become more prominent often creating an angry, stressed or tired appearance.
These lines are caused by contraction of the glabellar muscles- namely the procerus, corrugators and depressor supercilli which work to bring the eyes ‘down and in’. Elimination of frown lines leads to a more rested, approachable and fresh appearance.
Why have Crows Feet Anti-Wrinkle Treatment?
These lines and wrinkles are formed by contraction of the orbicularis oculi muscle around the eyes, and occur on smiling, laughing or squinting. In some people they are present at rest and can deepen with time to extend into the cheek areas creating a ‘tired or stressed’ appearance.
The lines can be worsened by sunlight or smoking, and completely eradicated by using simple Anti-Wrinkle injections around the contours of the eyes.
