Why do wrinkles occur?

Wrinkles are caused by repeated muscle contractions of the muscles in the face over time. An anti wrinkle treatment can help to temporarily reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

Anti wrinkle injections can be used to temporarily reduce the movement of the muscles in certain areas of the face. This in turn reduces the appearance of expression lines and wrinkles providing a smoother and softer looking face. The results of this treatment take 2 weeks to take effect and can last up to 3 months. The benefits of anti-wrinkle injectables is they temporarily remove existing lines, and can be a great way to achieve a natural, more youthful appearance.

Forehead & Frown lines

Cosmetic injectable treatments in this area will reduce those forehead and frown lines that are generally one of the first signs of ageing in the face. This is one of the most commonly treated areas of the face resulting in a noticeable anti-aging effect. Both the forehead and frown lines are generally treated together in order preserve a uniform appearance across the brow. This is often paired with a crows feet treatment bringing you one step closer to flawless skin.

Crows feet

Crows feet refer to fine lines which are located to the side of the eyes. They are generated over the years as a result of lots of smiling and laughter, hence their common name being ‘laugh lines’ or ‘smile lines’. Over time these lines can start to age the face. Anti-wrinkle injections in this area soften these lines enhance a patient’s natural beauty. This treatment, in combination with cheek and/or tear trough filler to restore lost volume will result in anti-aging and a fresher and brighter look.

Jaw line - maseter ’slimming’

Not your typical ‘anti wrinkle’ however this treatment is particularly targeted to the muscles located at each side of the jaw. The reduction in these muscles causes the strong jaw muscles to slim down and soften giving a ‘heart’ shaped appearance to your face. This type of treatment is commonly referred to as ‘feminisation’ of the face.

Anti-sweat treatment - Armpits

Again, not for wrinkles, however anti wrinkle treatments are very commonly used to treat a condition called hyperhydrosis. This condition refers to excessive sweating some people experience in their armpits. The injections ‘turn off’ the nerves which activate the sweat glands. These injections reduce and aim to eliminate the excessive sweat secreted throughout the day.
