We stress. We squint. We concentrate.
Combined with our normal ageing process, the facial expressions we use every day can also leave their mark. Even on days we feel full of life, our wrinkles can tell a different story and make us seem sad, tired – even angry.
A series of anti-wrinkle injections can erase and soften frown lines, crow’s feet around the eyes, soften chin creases and smooth out neck banding. This can provide a very natural, rejuvenated appearance that still allows you to smile and express yourself very naturally.
The anti-wrinkle serum works by temporarily blocking the signal impulse between the nerve endings and the muscle and weakening the muscle that produces the facial lines.
Initially, treatments will be needed every four to six months, but fewer treatments are required as time passes and in some cases frowning habits are erased completely. This treatment is also often used with other products like dermal fillers to rejuvenate and re-shape the face (see Total Face Enhancement).
If you’re contemplating an anti-wrinkle treatment for the first time, you can relax in the care of our Shape cosmetic nurse specialists who have the experience and aesthetic skills to ensure you’re never over treated – an approach which can result in the all too common ‘frozen’ face appearance.
The most common treatment areas for anti-wrinkle treatments are:
