Facial muscles contract thousands of times a day, eventually creating creases in the skin. Repeated facial expressions like squinting, frowning or smiling cause prominent lines and wrinkles to appear and become more noticeable over time.
Anti-wrinkle injections, help to slow down the activity of these muscles and reduce horizontal lines in your forehead, vertical frown lines between the brows, crows feet (wrinkles at the outer corner of the eyes), lip-stick lines (vertical lines above the upper lip), gummy smile (excessive display of gums during smiling), chin dimpling and downturned corners of mouth.
Anti-wrinkle injections work by binding to parts of the muscle that normally receive signals from the nerve endings. This allows the muscle to relax, reducing skin creases and wrinkles that are normally produced by the persistent contraction of these muscles. Helping restore a youthful appearance.
The effect of the treatment is noticeable within a few days and maximum effect of the treatment is seen at 2 weeks. We offer a follow up appointment at 2 weeks, to check that the result is optimal.
