Anti-wrinkle treatment

Wrinkles are created for a number of reasons. First of all, as our skin ages, it gets thinner and drier. We keep losing elastin with each passing year, and the abilities of our skin to protect itself diminishes with age. All this leads to the creation of wrinkles, creases and lines on our skin.

Another factor for the creation of wrinkles is the continuous muscle contraction, especially so around the facial area. This is the reason for the creation of dynamic wrinkles, only present when we use our muscles. However, if left without treatment, these will become static wrinkles, or in other words, permanent wrinkles.

Where can Wrinkle Reduction treatments be performed?

Frown Lines

Vertical lines between the eyes, also called “glabella lines”. Static wrinkles are created in this region due to constant muscle movement and contraction.

Jaw Re-Shaping

This cosmetic treatment is used on the lower face muscle, called the “masseter” or the muscle of the jaw. This muscle is responsible for chewing, and when overactive, leads to the problem with teeth grinding. The masseter is also responsible for the square look of the jaw, and while men may enjoy such a look, it’s not so in the case of women, who would prefer a softer look. Anti-wrinkle treatments are performed to reduce the size of masseter, and as a result, to provide the face with an oval, softer appearance. Furthermore, Anti-wrinkle treatments applied on the masseter can reduce the problem with teeth grinding.

Chin

With age, it is common for the chin muscle to start pulling upwards, which results with a line formed between the bottom lip and chin. Anti-wrinkle injections are used to take the pressure of the chin, which can recess and soften that line.

Vertical Lip Lines

Vertical lies between the eyes, also called “glabella lines”. Static wrinkles are created in this region due to constant muscle movement and contraction.

These lines form on the bottom and top lip. They are most defined during the movement of the mouth. Anti-wrinkle injections are used to make them less distinct and visible.

Treatment options

Anti-wrinkle injections can be used as a form of prevention before static wrinkles are created. That’s because they stop the signal between the nerve and muscles, prohibiting a certain line from creating.

With the decreased movement in the muscle places, the skin gets stressed less, which helps in maintaining a youthful, radiant appearance. Again, Anti-wrinkle Injections yield the best results when used as a preventative measure, not after the damage is done.

Anti-wrinkle Injections consist of purified protein. These cause the facial muscles to temporarily relax, softening and reducing the severity of the wrinkles.

FAQs

Are there people who shouldn’t have Anti-wrinkle treatments?

People with a known hypersensitivity to any ingredient of the Anti-wrinkle injection should avoid this treatment. Furthermore, any neuromuscular disorders, the state of pregnancy or breastfeeding are all conditions under which undergoing Anti-wrinkle injections is discouraged and not recommended.
Your medical history and skin suitability will be assessed by a medical professional during your consultation.

What to expect after the Anti-wrinkle treatment?

There is no downtime needed for recovery after undergoing an Anti-wrinkle injection. It is possible to return to work or ordinary activity right after the treatment, which makes this treatment one of the least problematic of all cosmetic treatments. The effects of the Anti-wrinkle injection become noticeable as soon as 3 days after the procedure. Effects then last for up to four months after the injection.
One of the most important parts of the Anti-wrinkle treatment is the optimal dosing, which guarantees the best possible results and effects that are going to last. Dosing is individualised for each patient by the medical professional during and after your consultation when it is adjusted to match your needs and situation.
It is best to avoid massaging or applying other kinds of pressure to the area which has been treated. Such procedures are discouraged for a few days after the Anti-wrinkle injection. Mineral makeup should also be worn for optimal results.
