Anti wrinkle treatment is not similar to Dermal fillers, it works in a different way by relaxing the muscles that surround wrinkles. It may be used in conjunction with dermal fillers to improve results.
Anti wrinkle treatment can help perform a non-surgical brow lift by relaxing the muscles responsible for causing heaviness of the eyebrows. This gives a well-rested and more alert appearance to the eyes.
Smiling and squinting will eventually leave lines. Placed in the crow’s feet area allows you to smile without causing these lines to worsen. It can also improve the appearance of already existing lines.
Botox For Bunny lines.
Repeated squinting can cause fine lines to show up on either side of the nasal bridge. A small amount of Botox on either side of the nasal bridge will allow these muscles to relax during squinting, preventing these lines from getting deeper and even improving the already existing lines.
Forehead Horizontal Lines.
Horizontal lines, which gives an aged or stressed appearance. The treatment can relax the forehead muscles in order to decrease the appearance of these lines and keep them from worsening.
Frown lines and “Worry Lines”.
Frown lines and “worry lines” are by far the most common site for treatment. It can be used to relax muscles, allowing for a more relaxed and good-natured appearance.
Upper & Lower Lip Lines.
Pursing the lip while talking, whistling, smoking or drinking from a straw can contribute to the formation of vertical lip lines. The treatment for the muscle of the upper or lower lip can reduce the appearance of these lines.
Droopy Lip Corners.
Downward turned corners of the mouth can give us an angry or sad appearance. The muscles that pull down on the corners of our mouths with certain expressions can be minimised by the treatment giving us a more pleasant shape to the corners of our mouths.
How does it work to reduce facial lines?
Facial lines are caused by repeated use of the facial muscles of expression e.g. squinting and frowning. By reducing the amount of facial muscle movement the lines can be softened. Injections are given into the muscles, temporarily putting them to sleep for a period of three to six months.
The freezing of the muscle is always temporary and is sometimes called ‘The Hibernation Period’ as the muscle ‘hibernates’ for a short time. The aim of the treatment is to break the habit of frowning or squinting and so reduce the appearance of the lines and also reduce the development of further facial lines.
After your treatment it will take 2-3 days for the effects to start to be seen reaching its maximum effect at 7-10 days. The treatment may last from to 3-6 months, on average 4 months. With ongoing treatment the effects may last longer. Occasionally you may require a top-up injection at two weeks if the muscle is not fully asleep.
It is always better to use a conservative amount of the treatment and add more if required. It will make it a little more difficult to frown and squint and therefore reduce facial lines. However if you try very hard you will be able to move the muscles a little. This does not mean the treatment has not worked.
Are there any side effects?
The side effects are minimal and all are temporary. The injections may sting very slightly but they are not painful. Other side effects are minimal redness/bruising and swelling at the sites that usually disappears after an hour or so. You may experience transient headache and numbness at the treatment sites. There is a very small risk of eyelid drooping (ptosis) and slight puffiness following treatment.
In the unlikely event that this occurs, it is always temporary and usually settles after 2-3 weeks. The incidence of ptosis is about 2% but always ask your practitioner what problems they have had with treatments as this will differ between practitioners. After several treatments, very rarely some patients become resistant to the drug and it no longer works effectively.
