Have you started to develop facial wrinkles?
As we begin to age, our skin begins to loosen, and wrinkles start to form across our upper, mid and lower face. Deep lines begin to appear in our skin due to years of our muscles contracting and tightening across our mouth, eyebrows, forehead and eyes.
How do anti-wrinkle injections work?
Anti-wrinkle injections use a toxin that works to temporarily stop muscle movement. By preventing contractions, anti-wrinkle injections can improve the appearance of:
• Vertical frown lines/glabella lines (lines between the eyebrows)
• Horizontal forehead lines
• Crow's feet (lines radiating from the corners of the eyes)
• Nasolabial folds
• Upper lip wrinkles
• Marionette lines
Anti-wrinkle injections can also offer relief from:
• Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating)
How long do anti-wrinkle injections last?
After your treatment, changes will start to become noticeable from about day 4, with the full effect kicking in around day 14.
Following the treatment, your muscle contractions should be eased for between 3-4 months. We recommended maintenance sessions every 4 to 6 months, although this may vary between individuals.
