What are anti-wrinkle injections?
Anti-Wrinkle Injections are the UK's number one method for treating fine lines and facial wrinkles. Wrinkles are caused by repeated facial muscle contraction. Anti-Wrinkle Injections work by temporarily relaxing the muscles responsible for causing lines and wrinkles, by preventing the nerve signaling the muscle cells to contract. Anti-Wrinkle Injections work well in reducing the appearance of dynamic wrinkles (lines which appear when smiling or frowning) and softening static wrinkles (which remain regardless of facial expression).
Which areas can be treated?
Frown lines, forehead lines, lines around the eyes (crow's feet), lines at the sides of the nose (bunny lines), and lines around the lips are the mostly commonly treated areas. However, in recent years more clients are choosing this treatment to lift and reshape the brow, slim the jawline (Masseter), and to reduce the appearance of a gummy smile. Also, anti-wrinkle injections can be used to lift a droopy smile (DAO) and reduce dimpling of the chin.
