What do Anti-wrinkle injections do?
The repeated movements of smiling and frowning in daily life cause creases in the skin over time, these are wrinkles. The anti-wrinkle injections inhibit the muscle movement that causes these fine lines and wrinkles, reducing existing wrinkles, and helping prevent new ones from forming.
Which areas are suitable?
Anti-wrinkle injections are most commonly used for the following areas:
- Vertical lines between the brows (frown lines)
- Crow’s feet
- Squint lines
- Horizontal forehead lines
- Lines on the bridge of the nose (bunny lines)
What is involved?
During the appointment, our qualified Dentist will ask you to move your face by frowning or smiling, this is to assess the way your muscles move, to make sure they place the product in the most suitable place under the skin for the best possible results. They will mark these places with a make-up pencil, and then will place several small injections under the skin, which feels like a tiny pinch. The make-up pencil markings are removed before you leave.
Why get anti-wrinkle injections?
Anti-wrinkle treatments are popular for removing or reducing wrinkles and to prevent lines from appearing. Fine lines appear from repetitive muscle movements such as smiling and frowning, due to the skin losing elasticity and collagen as you get older. Anti-wrinkle injections can be used as a preventive which means the lines will not appear in the first place or will be greatly lessened. This can be a great confidence booster!
How long do the injections last?
You will begin to see the effects after just a few days, however it can take up to 10 days after the treatment for the maximum effect to be seen. The effect usually lasts 3 to 4 months, however it can last longer with regular treatments, due to gradual weakening of the muscle. After your appointment, we encourage you to book in again to maintain the effect.
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are a soft injectable gel-like substance which is used to enhance, restore or add volume to different structures of the face. The filler consists of sugar-based molecules called hylauronuic acid. Hylauronuic acid structure closely resembles the sugar that exists naturally in the skin, and this is why dermal fillers are safe and long-lasting (but not permanent). Dermal fillers can be used to minimise wrinkles, plump the lips, reshape the nose or chin, or recontour face shape.
How long do dermal fillers last?
Dermal fillers can stay in the skin from 3 months up to 18 months depending on the type of filler and your age, skin and lifestyle. They provide long-lasting results with little maintenance and visible but subtle results. Results will be seen immediately, and as such, they are a very popular cosmetic treatment around the world.
Which areas are suitable for treatment with dermal fillers?
Lips – to add volume, reshape or reduce lines
Under eyes — to volume lost over time
Nose – to reshare to even the profile
To fill out deep wrinkles such as crow’s feet, frown lines and forehead lines
