How Anti-Wrinkle Treatment Helps Get Rid of Wrinkles
Wrinkle relaxing injections using filler toxins are one of the most popular and effective treatments for the reduction of facial lines as they can be performed quickly, are non-invasive, and most importantly, safe. Our wrinkle reduction treatment consists of a series of fine injections into the targeted areas to smooth out facial lines and give the appearance of a more youthful and rejuvenated look.
Anti-wrinkle injection fillers contain a toxin which is a purified protein that temporarily disrupts the communication pathway between nerve endings and muscle fibres, it stops muscle contraction and reduces the appearance of wrinkles. The effect is reversible and a wrinkle relaxing injection can last up to 4 months.
The most popular facial areas for injections are:
- Forehead lines
- Frown lines (between eyebrows)
- Crows feet (corners of the eyes)
There is a new trend towards a more natural look and using facial fillers as a prophylactic way of preventing deep wrinkle formation. This treatment provides a simple and quick procedure to achieve a very subtly enhanced look whilst maintaining all the existing facial expressions. It involves very small amounts of the wrinkle reduction substance to be injected over a larger area and has virtually no downtime.
In the hands of an advanced injector, it can be used to treat far more than the 3 conventional facial areas mentioned above. At Harley Street Medical Doctors, we offer advanced anti-wrinkle treatment for:
- Wrinkles under the eyes
- Lack of eyebrow arches
- Bunny lines around the nose
- Gummy smile
- Cobblestone/ dimpled/ golf ball chin
- Downward mouth corners
- Smoker’s line/ top lip lines
- Prominent neck bands
Botulinum Toxins can also be used as a facial slimming procedure. It is particularly popular with the Asian where masseter (one of the muscles responsible for chewing) hypertrophy is fairly common. By treating these areas, one’s face will look slimmer and sharper. Furthermore, it has the added benefit to treating individuals who grind their teeth at night as well.
