A combination of factors can cause facial lines. It’s not just about the cellular changes that may occur, or reduction of collagen, or damage caused by free radicals from the sun and the environment.
Repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows cause skin to furrow and fold, gradually resulting in the formation of facial lines. Having anti-wrinkle injections is a quick treatment that works beneath the surface and temporarily reduces the underlying muscle activity that causes moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines in adults – to help them look better.
Areas that can be treated with muscle relaxing injections:
- Frown lines
- Forehead lines
- Crows feet
- Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating)
- Bunny lines (nose lines)
- Gummy smile
- Eyebrow lift
Prior to your anti-wrinkle treatment you will need an extensive consultation with Dr Stolte to keep within the HEE guidelines. Your prescription will be valid for 6 months so you can have the treatment anytime when it suits you.
