Anti-Wrinkle injections are an extremely popular anti-ageing treatment for both men and
women. Anti-Wrinkle injections are used to address wrinkles that are obtained over the years by the repeated use of, or tension in the facial muscles. Such as when we smile, frown, and squint, creating lines on our foreheads, around our mouths, and next to our eyes. These are known
as dynamic wrinkles, wrinkles caused by motion in the face. Anti-wrinkle injections smooth away the appearance of wrinkles by targeting and relaxing the muscle holding the wrinkle in place. This treatment erases the appearance of these wrinkles by blocking the nerve signal telling the muscle to work.
Anti-wrinkle injections are a highly effective solution to furrow lines on the forehead, vertical lines between the eyebrows, crow’s feet, vertical lip lines, and neck bands.
Anti-wrinkle injections can also prevent the formation of new wrinkles. This is because as the treated area remains relaxed, new dynamic wrinkles and creases are not formed.
Anti-Wrinkle injections also have non-cosmetic benefits and can be used to treat migraines and excessive sweating, known as hyperhidrosis. Clients often combine their Botox with a treatment of Dermal Fillers to rejuvenate their appearance and reduce facial ageing.
