Anti-Wrinkle Injections


Anti-wrinkle injections for the face

Anti-wrinkle injections have become an increasingly popular non-surgical way to combat the permanent creases around the mouth, eyes and forehead which can develop over time as a result of smiling, laughing and frowning. These injections are used to relax the facial muscles, which in turn leads to a decrease of tension, smoothing the face and stopping existing lines being exacerbated. The effects last for between three to six months.

Choosing the right anti-wrinkle injection

To treat your skin concern, make yourself familiar with the types of injection available, checking the active ingredients and benefits that come with each treatment. Desired effects, benefits, recovery times and potential side effects should all be balanced when making a decision. It is essential for you, as the patient, to research and gather pertinent information with which to hold a discussion with your technician.

Dermal fillers

Dermal fillers are often used on deeper laughter and frown lines to plump the skin. Juvederm, manufactured from hyaluronic acid, is one of the better known brands. Effects may last up to a year.
