Anti wrinkle injections
Imagine your skin as a wrinkled shirt, if you keep scrunching it up, the wrinkles will just get worse, if you hang it up the creases will fall out.
Botulinum toxin A is a muscle relaxing agent which lasts about 3-4 months. By relaxing the muscles involved in repetitive movements of the face such as frowning, the overlying skin has a chance to repair itself and over time existing wrinkles will soften and new ones won't have a chance to form. This can be achieved without that 'frozen look' and can be so subtle no one even needs to know!
In the right hands anti wrinkle injections can also be used to lift the face and brows and give you a non-surgical face lift.
The picture illustrates the facial lines that can be treated.
Some lines needs a little more oomph, that's where dermal fillers come in. They fill in lines and can be used on their own or in tandem with anti wrinkle injections.
Dermal fillers come in all sorts of flavours, I use Restylane, which lasts about 9-12 months and has some local anaesthetic built in making it almost painless.
The picture demonstrates some common sites where dermal fillers can give great results. They can also be used for superficial lines, frown lines, chin dimples and to plump up whole areas such as the lips.
