When you look in the mirror, what stares back at you? Are lines and facial creases getting in the way of your youthful, vibrant appearance? Are you beginning to look chronically tired, worried or even angry? If your forehead is making you look older or wearier than you feel, there are ways to reverse signs of ageing in this area. One of the most effective treatments currently available at My Cosmetic Clinic is a non-surgical approach involving anti-wrinkle injections.
What Happened to My Forehead?
You may not expect the forehead to be an area where time takes its toll, but the upper portion of the face is often one of the first places to show signs of ageing. Some of the early lines to appear are often between the eyebrows. Parallel vertical creases, referred to as frown lines or the 11s, occur because of regular squinting or other expressions that cause the brow line to pinch together. Over time, the lines become a permanent fixture on the face.
Horizontal lines may also appear across the forehead, further exacerbating the aged look. In addition, subtle lines may start to feather out from the outer corners of the eyes. Known as crow’s feet, these lines result from many of the same expressions that cause the other creases in the upper face, so you may see a convergence of ageing symptoms at one time that makes you realise you need a treatment to turn back the clock and refresh your appearance.
Understanding Active Wrinkles
The ageing signs that typically appear on the upper face are caused by active or dynamic wrinkles. These wrinkles are not due to sun exposure or collagen loss; the primary reasons that lines in the mid and lower face occur. Active wrinkles form as a result of making the same facial expression – smiling, frowning, squinting – over and over, which leads to the development of lines that can become permanent fixtures on the face years later.
Introducing the Solution
Finding a treatment for dynamic wrinkles needs to go beyond addressing the immediate problem. A more effective approach is to target the muscles that cause the wrinkles since by relaxing them, you can also ease the lines and create a smoother appearance to the face. Anti-wrinkle injections do just that with a certain protein in the mix that serves to ease the muscle contractions that lead to the formation of some types of facial lines.
Quick Procedure, Quick Results
Anti-wrinkle injections are performed right in our office at My Cosmetic Clinic and rarely cause any significant discomfort during or after treatment. Procedures take about 20 minutes, which includes a brief consultation and assessment of your concerns, as well as the injections themselves. Time will vary slightly, based on the number of treatment areas to be addressed. You will be able to return to your daily life immediately, as no downtime is required after this treatment.
Results are apparent within the next three to five days following your treatment and will continue to improve for a few days afterward. Those results are only temporary, but you should be able to enjoy your wrinkle-free upper face for up to four months before a touch-up procedure needs to be scheduled.
