Anti-wrinkle injections reduce the wrinkles caused by the continual and repeated contraction of the tiny muscles of the face, which wrinkle up the overlying skin. Anti-wrinkle injections provide a highly effective method of smoothing the skin and are one of the most widely performed cosmetic treatments today.
How do anti-wrinkle injections work?
Anti-wrinkle injections work by blocking signals between the nerves and muscles, preventing muscles from contracting and forming lines on the surface of the skin. The result is fast, effective and impressive control of frown lines, wrinkles and fine lines. Anti-wrinkle injections are not a permanent solution, and further treatments are required periodically to maintain the effect. The visible signs of every stress and ageing can be reduced.
Benefits of anti-wrinkle injections
- Rapid, noticeable results that last up to four months.
- Can help to reduce and soften the wrinkles in the forehead, crow’s feet and frown lines
- Treatments can create a smooth, rejuvenated and youthful appearance in most upper facial lines.
- Help to prevent future lines forming or deepening by relaxing the muscle
- Noticeable improvements in 2-14 days.
- Results that last up to four months.
- Botulinum Toxin Type A is a unique biological pharmaceutical that has been used clinically for over 25 years and has a 20 year safety profile
Anti-wrinkle injections are particularly useful in treating a specific type of wrinkle. If you have deep frown lines or forehead or crow’s feet, anti-wrinkle injections may produce best results for you.
Anti-wrinkle injections are performed with extreme precision by our Cosmetic Nurse. She is comprehensively trained to achieve maximum wrinkle reduction, with minimal effect on your facial expression.
As our faces age, we lose volume in our muscles, fat and tissue, and the overlying skin tends to sag, and wrinkles can form. Dermal fillers can restore some of that youthful, well-rested look to even the most mature face. Dermal fillers are also used to hydrate and restore volume to cheeks, lips, chin, lower face, jaw, hands and around the eyes.
Dermal fillers can restore fullness to lips and cheeks with a natural-looking result and provide volume in the chin, jaw, and hands. Dermal fillers can help to re volumise and hydrate the face and skin.
How to dermal fillers work?
Dermal fillers work by minimising the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by creating volume in the inner layers of skin. Dermal fillers are substances injected into the skin of the face to fill in deep folds and wrinkles.
Dermal fillers are used mainly for “static” facial lines and folds, the ones that do not come and go as you change your expression. That includes the folds between your nose and the outer corners of the mouth (nasolabial folds); the lines that extend from the corners of the mouth to the chin (marionette lines); a semi-circular line that may appear on the chin with age (supramental crease); and the hollow that sometimes occurs between the chin line and a drooping jowl (pre-jowl depression).
Dermal fillers can also restore fullness to lips and cheeks with a natural-looking result and provide volume in the chin, jaw, and hands.
What is dermal filler?
The most widely used dermal fillers are made of Hyaluronic acid (HA). This molecule provides a natural cushion in the skin by attaching itself to water molecules. HA fillers are absorbed slowly and come in a variety of consistencies suited to filling different lines. Dermal fillers are gels with a hyaluronic acid base (like a sugar gel), which can be injected into certain areas of your face to either correct wrinkles, fill in deep scars or non-surgically change the shape of certain parts of your face. Hyaluronic acid is a substance found naturally in the body, and over time the dermal filler breaks down via normal body processes.
The benefits of using dermal fillers include:
- Dermal fillers can reliably treat wrinkles at depths that other methods cannot.
- They are biocompatible and rarely cause reactions.
- The fillers can be dissolved by injection if there are any problems.
- They are non-invasive compared to surgical solutions.
