What are anti-wrinkle injections?
Anti-wrinkle injections are composed of a natural, purified protein which when injected into facial muscles, weaken and lessen the lines associated with facial expression by relaxing the underlying muscles and allowing the skin to flatten out. By preventing the skin from contracting this decreases unwanted fine lines and wrinkles from forming, softening areas of concern whilst still maintaining expression.
Suitable areas for anti-wrinkle treatment:
Frown Lines / Forehead Lines / Crows Feet / Eyebrow Lift / Marionette Lines / Vertical Lip Lines / Upper lip volume 'lip flip'/ Gummy Smile / Teeth Grinding (Bruxism) / Facial Slimming / Chin Dimpling
How long will anti-wrinkle treatments last:
Depending on the dose and area injected, anti wrinkle treatments last approximately 3-4 months. This treatment is not permanent and requires regular treatment to maintain optimal results.
