All About Anti Wrinkle InjectionsSeptember 6, 2014
It is said that wrinkles are proof that we live our life smiling and being happy.
But perhaps you simply want to slow down the ageing process? You wish there was a way to pause the passing of time and stay looking younger and fresher for longer. So if you are considering getting anti-wrinkle injections, read on to find out all about the procedure.
What causes wrinkles?
When you are young, your body produces enough collagen and elastin to keep your skin elastic and supple.
But with age, the amount of collagen and elastin depletes. This, in combination with other factors (smoking, facial expressions, drinking, other lifestyle habits) leads to the creasing of the skin. These creases are called wrinkles.
How do anti wrinkle injections work?
The injections work by introducing a small amount of muscle-relaxing solution underneath the layers of the skin, into individual muscles. The solution prevents the muscles from contracting and making unnecessary facial expressions (the cause of wrinkles).
These repairing injections do not change the way you look and they do not interfere with your facial expressions. They just soften the areas of concern and make you appear younger and more refreshed.
What areas of the body can be treated with anti wrinkle injections?
Usually it is the face that is treated with anti wrinkle injections, as this is the area where wrinkles typically appear. Here are the main areas of the face that can be treated with anti wrinkle injections:
- Frown lines and forehead lines
- Crows feet
- Eyebrow lift
- Puckering lines above and below the lips;
- The ‘bunny smile lines’ at the top of the nose;
- To reduce a ‘gummy smile’;
- To lift sagging at the side of the mouth
- To improve chin creases and dimpling
- To lift and tighten a sagging neck (Platysmal muscle)
- To slim the lower face (Masseter muscles)
Are anti-wrinkle injections safe?
These injections have been used for medical purposes for more than 30 years now. During this time they have become extremely safe, both from the point of view of the anti wrinkle solution that is used and from the point of view of the procedure.
Nonetheless, for anti-wrinkle injections to be a success you have to have the procedure done by a certified doctor or nurse, in a designated environment.
