Wrinkles are a natural part of ageing, however they are one that we work hard to avoid. Deep lines and fine wrinkles generally form on the face. The most common wrinkles are laugh lines, forehead wrinkles and crows feet. But what are wrinkles? How can an anti-wrinkle treatment help to minimise their appearance?
A wrinkle forms due to the repetitive use of a particular muscle over time. This is why they’re commonly seen around the eyes and mouth, as we use these muscles daily. Wrinkles can also be encouraged by external factors such as smoking, skin dehydration and sun damage. Left untreated, a wrinkle will become dep set into the skin and can make you look older, more tired or angry. Once a wrinkle is visible on the skin even when you’re not using the muscle, that’s the perfect time for an anti-wrinkle injection.
The aim of an anti-wrinkle injection is to reduce the target muscle’s ability to activate. This reduces the appearance of the existing wrinkle and stops new lines from developing. To achieve this, small amounts of anti-wrinkle product, made from a bacterial protein, are injected into the target muscle in equal incriments. This evenly relaxes the muscle. The result is a smoother, more youthful complexion with minimal fine lines.
WHEN SHOULD I HAVE THIS TREATMENT?
Anti wrinkle injections are perfect for those who are either looking to reduce the already visible signs of ageing, or for those who are looking at prematurely slowing the internal ageing process in their muscles.
Skin that has also exposed to external factors such as alcohol, lack of sleep, high stress levels and smoking will also benefit from this treatment
