All About Anti-Wrinkle Treatments
Anti-wrinkle treatments can help reduce the signs of aging that are associated with the lines produced by our facial expressions. Anger, sadness, surprise, happiness, laughter – these emotions all contribute to different lines forming on your face over time, including crow’s feet and laugh lines.
Anti-wrinkle treatments help to smooth these lines for a smooth lines for a period of up 3-4 months, assisting the skin to become visibly smoother.
The procedure involves injecting muscle relaxing substances into the muscles that control facial expressions with an extremely fine syringe. These substances keep the muscles from contracting forcefully, helping to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and giving the skin an opportunity to rest and repair itself. This, in turn, helps wrinkles to disappear entirely, or become less noticeable.
The targeted muscles begin to relax immediately, with effects being seen after two to three days, with the peak effect being realised within a fortnight and results lasting three to four months in most cases. Further treatment is recommended as more movement begins to return to the targeted muscles.
What are the risks?
