We all can use a little help at times to look our best. Fortunately anti-wrinkle injections are a safe and very effective way to take years off the tired appearance of our face.
By using these injections to decrease the facial muscle actions responsible for lines and creases, the skin appears smoother and firmer. This decrease in muscle movement also prevents new lines from forming, provided patients receive ongoing treatments.
The injections work by blocking the nerve impulse signals between facial muscles and their relevant nerves. By softening the appearance of eye and forehead lines, anti-wrinkle injections can reverse a tired, stressed or anxious look, giving you a more relaxed, younger appearance.
Anti-wrinkle injections can also be used to lift and reshape the outer eyebrow and reduce the muscle bands in the neck. They are used to lift the jawline, rejuvenate the jaw, and reduce teeth grinding.
If anti-wrinkle treatment injections are used to treat shallow lines, then these often disappear completely after a few treatments.
Anti-wrinkle injections are not just for those who already have lines and wrinkles. Indeed, by starting treatment early on, anti-wrinkle injections can delay and even prevent lines from setting in. Patients who receive ongoing treatments can maintain a more youthful appearance over the long term.
Treatment involves giving a series of localised injections directly into the muscles beneath the wrinkles. Each injection stings for a few seconds and in rare cases, some bruising and swelling will occur.
At DermaSurg Skin Clinic we decided to introduce Xeomin® which is the most purified form of Botulinum toxin type A with the fewest reported adverse effects. So pure in fact, that even a celebrity like Gwyneth Paltrow chooses it!
