What are Anti-Wrinkle injections?
Wrinkles are a natural part of the ageing process. Early wrinkles may be caused by exposure to Ultraviolet Light (UV), which breaks down collagen and elastin. Over time, skin becomes thinner, drier and less elastic. This makes it less able to protect itself from harmful factors and leads to wrinkles on the skin.
Anti-wrinkle injections are made up with natural, purified proteins. They work by inhibiting the signal between nerves and muscles. The facial muscles targeted will relax, which softens wrinkles and lines reducing their visibility. They can also be used to prevent lines from forming. There are many areas of the face where anti-wrinkle injections can be used. Examples include; forehead lines, frown lines, crows’ feet, lip lines and chin lines. They can also be used to shape the jaw and slim the face by relaxing the muscles, tightening the skin
