Aging is a natural process, but many side effects that come along with aging that many consider less-than-ideal. One aspect of aging that concerns many people is the formation and appearance of wrinkles. If you’re looking for ways to treat frown lines, the wrinkles that appear between the eyebrows, then anti-wrinkle injections are a fantastic option. The experts at My Cosmetic Clinic in Sydney, New South Wales have the skills needed to ensure that you look and feel your best.
What Is the Best Treatment for Frown Lines?
How Anti-Wrinkle Injections Can Help
It’s normal as time goes on for skin to begin to show signs of aging. Dark spots, dull skin, and, yes, wrinkles. One of the most common areas where wrinkles will appear is on the forehead. These wrinkles can be difficult to get rid of, but it is possible to lessen their appearance.
One of the best ways to do that is through anti-wrinkle injections. These injections are a great way to naturally smooth out any wrinkles. When performed by a highly trained technician, anti-wrinkle injections can provide a very natural, subtle-looking treatment.
What Causes Frown Lines?
Many factors can contribute to the appearance of wrinkles. One is the levels of collagen present in your skin. Collagen is a protein that gives tissues in your body like your skin and your muscle its structure. However, as you get older, the amount of collagen present begins to lessen. This, in turn, will affect the structure of your skin which leads to wrinkles and sagging of the skin.
The loss of collagen can be exacerbated by things like the sun, which emits UV rays that penetrate the skin and affect its structure. Repeated facial expressions can also encourage the formation of frown lines.
How Do Anti-Wrinkle Injections Work?
The anti-wrinkle injections that we use are made with naturally occurring proteins that have been purified. A needle is used to deliver the injection to the desired area, offering a non-surgical solution to lessen the appearance of your frown lines.
The injections will help to smooth out and relax the skin, which provides you with a softer, younger appearance. They will also stop the neurotransmitters travelling between your nerve and your muscle from telling the muscles in this area to contract. This means that your frown lines will no longer be exacerbated by any repeated facial movements.
What Happens During the Treatment?
When you come to us for your anti-wrinkle injections, you can trust our highly-trained technicians to offer you this treatment in a clean, welcoming environment. We will first sit down for a consultation, where you can point out the areas where you’d like to treat and detail your desired results.
Once the consultation process is done, you will be given an ice pack to apply to the area receiving the treatment. This ice pack will help to numb the area slightly, as well as to prevent bruising. The area that is receiving the treatment will be carefully cleaned, and then a very fine needle will be used to apply the injections.
How Long Does the Treatment Take?
One of the best parts of getting anti-wrinkle injections is that the treatment process itself is very quick. The longest part of the process will be the consultation, as this is where we will discuss what your expectations are for the treatment, and point out the specific areas you would like to receive it.
The actual injections will only take a few minutes to apply. If you are only looking to treat your frown lines, then the treatment will just take a couple of minutes. But if you are looking to treat other areas of your face as well, then the process will take slightly longer. In total, appointments for these injections last around 20 minutes.
When Will I See Results?
It generally takes a few days for the anti-wrinkle injections to show results. You should find that within 2 to 3 days you begin to notice a difference. However, it can take 5 to 8 days for the full results to become apparent.
These injections will typically last for around 16 weeks. If you want to maintain the appearance that these injections have provided, then you should aim to receive the treatment every four months or so.
What Other Areas Can Anti-Wrinkle Injections Treat?
Frown lines are just one of many areas of your face that anti-wrinkle injections can help. Essentially, these injections can treat any area of the face that receives wrinkles. This includes crow’s feet, smile lines, and wrinkles in the nose area.
Anti-wrinkle injections can also be useful if you are experiencing any sagging in the neck area. They can offer a slimming effect to the lower face area and can offer an effective eyebrow lift.
