Wrinkle relaxing injections are currently the most popular and the commonly performed aesthetic procedure worldwide. The procedure is simple; it takes minutes to do with no down time, very low risk of complications and IT DOES WORK.
Wrinkle relaxers are a highly purified protein that is extracted from bacteria, in a similar way that penicillin comes from a mould.
By injecting the wrinkle relaxing protein into selected wrinkle producing muscles this relaxes the muscle creating a smoother, rejuvenated and more youthful appearance. The muscle relaxant is the most popular treatment for: reducing frown lines, horizontal forehead lines and crow’s feet.
It is also medically approved to treat hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating under the arms) and palms of hands. It can also be used to assist treating habitual clenching of teeth by relaxing the strong muscles at the angle of the jaw.
It takes 2-3 days for the wrinkle relaxant to start taking effect and up to a week to see results and can last up to 6 months.
How to look refreshed and maximize the beauty of your eye area
The upper face is where we look to pick up visual cues about thoughts and feelings but it is also where a lot of repeated muscle movement causes lines and wrinkles as we age. Many of us count our eyes as our best feature, yet it is around the eyes that the first signs of ageing begin to appear as frown lines, forehead lines or crow’s feet.
Are you feeling great but your face is not showing it? Over time dynamic wrinkles caused by muscle movement in the upper face may become static wrinkles. These are wrinkles that remain on our face, even when we’re relaxed. Naturally facial change is expected as we age but we can all still have an open, friendly, approachable look.
Fortunately the upper face is an area full of possibilities.
You can maximise your appearance in a number of ways. When you partner non-surgical treatments with creative make-up techniques it’s possible to not only look refreshed, but maximise the beauty of your eye area.
