Wrinkle often appear in our forehead and around our eyes when we smile or frown. These lines appear because our muscles contract to form different facial expressions.
Over time, these expression lines begin to linger a little longer or become a little deeper, even when the face is at rest.
How Anti Wrinkle treatment works
Anti wrinkle treatment works by relaxing facial muscles that cause wrinkles and lines when you smile or frown.
The treatment relaxes only the muscles beneath the lines where product has been injected, and the muscles responsible for other aspects of your facial expression stay active. If you have no further treatments, the muscles return to normal and lines gradually go back to how they looked before treatment.
What do treatments involve and when will I see results?
Anti Wrinkle treatments are quick and simple. A small amount of anti wrinkle in injected into specific facial muscle with a very fine needle. Treatments generally take around ten minutes.
Typically, any pain is minimal and brief and no anaesthetic is required. You can resume normal activities immediately and it’s important to follow any post- treatment instructions your clinician gives you.
You’ll generally start to see results in 1-2 days of treatment and it can take from 10-14 days for full results to be seen.
How long will anti wrinkle treatment results last and how do I maintain them?
The effects of treatments usually last up to 3 months and gradually decrease over time.
• Stop smoking: Smoking is known to age the skin, which can increase wrinkles and increase the chances of them coming back after anti-wrinkle injections. Stop if you can, or cut down
• Hydrate your body: Drinking at least eight glasses of water a day will help keep your skin healthy. Well hydrated bodies have good circulation and cell function
• Eat well: A healthy diet can help keep your skin healthy too. Foods like fatty fish, nuts and seeds can all increase how long your anti-wrinkle injections last
• Cleanse and moisturise: Gentle cleansers will help keep dead cells away, and a rich moisturising cream will help keep your skin plump and wrinkle free
