Anti Wrinkle Injections

What are anti wrinkle injections used for?

The medication botulinum toxin, commonly known as botox, is used as anti-wrinkle injections by carefully targeting specific facial muscle groups with the goal of improving expressions and softening the appearance of lines and wrinkles. 

The treatment works by limiting the contraction of certain muscle groups which in turn limits the strength of wrinkles. This is very beneficial in preventing new lines from forming and reducing the harshness of existing ones. However, due to its beneficial effect on skin pores, patients usually also find their skin looking fresher and rejuvenated. The results are noticeable in one to two weeks and tend to last three to four months. 

Botox can also be used in reducing muscle bulk as commonly used for jawline slimming or target sweat glands and help with excessive sweating.

Chin wrinkles

A “wrinkly chin” is often the result of an overactive chin muscle (mentalis). You can see this overactivity in most people due to the normal ageing process: however, it can also be seen in younger people as well. The muscle causes dimpling and bumps and after years of repetitive movements, the overlying skin becomes wrinkly. The skin’s texture gets worse over time and thin cross-hatched lines develop creating a cobblestone chin or orange peel chin. Fortunately, the mentalis muscle can easily and safely be treated. Two weeks, after the treatment you can see improvements in the wrinkling, creasing and dimpling of the skin.

Sad smile

Sad mouth, also called marionette lines, is the name given to the lines that appear at the corners of your mouth. These lines tend to turn downwards, giving the impression of being sad, cross or tired – even if you’re not! Mild cases can be treated with facial line softening by injecting the DAO Depressor Angluli Oris muscles to relax them and stop the downward pull. Moderate to severe cases are treated with Dermal Fillers

Recovery Time: None
How often: 3-4 months
