One of the most popular and effective procedures that can help to reduce the signs of ageing, and transform your skin, are anti-wrinkle injections. These are specifically formulated to replenish and hydrate your skin, while also fighting the common signs of ageing. Anti-wrinkle injections can be applied to a range of problem areas on the face, tackling fine lines and wrinkles, helping to maintain a more youthful appearance. But where are these injections most effective? Well, here at The Skin and Wellbeing Clinic, here in Preston, we are leading experts when it comes to a wide range of anti-aging and skin care treatments, including dermal fillers and chemical peels. Anti-wrinkle injections are one of our most popular treatment options, because of the quality of the results. As a result, we have produced this guide to the key areas to target with anti-wrinkle injections.
How do anti-wrinkle injections work?
Anti-wrinkle injections reduce the appearance of wrinkles, expression lines, and fine lines, by relaxing the underlying muscles, so that your facial muscles will stay in a more natural position. By relaxing the muscles, the overlying skin can also relax, and will gradually move back its original position, smoothing out any lines or wrinkles.
Anti-wrinkle injections can be applied to a range of areas around the face, especially those that often cause the most problems in terms of wrinkles and expression lines. These areas include:
- The forehead – One of the first places to develop visible lines and wrinkles is, for many people, the forehead. If you are an animated talker that uses lots of expressive facial movements, or you are in contact with increased UV, you could notice forehead wrinkles earlier than other people do. Natural ageing will also cause these wrinkles to appear. Expressions like confusion or surprise, can cause muscles in the forehead to move, and as collagen and elastin break down as we age, this causes wrinkles to appear. Anti-wrinkle injections that temporarily relax the forehead muscles can allow time for your skin to smooth out, and return to its original position.
- Crow’s Feet – Another area where wrinkles and lines can age your appearance is the skin next to your eyes. These are often caused by smiling and laughter, which work the muscles in this part of your face. Anti-wrinkle injections to this area can have a significant impact on the appearance of these wrinkles, even helping them to disappear completely. This will leave you with younger looking, more radiant skin.
- Glabella – The space between your eyes, at the base of your forehead, is known as your Glabella. This space is often a serious problem area for wrinkles, because this is a region where multiple muscles are used to create facial expressions. As a result, these lines have become known as frown lines. And for some people, these occur as early as the mid twenties. Anti-wrinkle injections can help reduce the appearance of these wrinkles, so that you look younger.
All of these key areas can also be treated with anti-wrinkle injections, as a preventative measure, before wrinkles are formed.
