How Can You Eliminate Forehead Lines?
What Are Anti-Wrinkle Injections?
The substance used in anti-wrinkle injections is a protein that can be injected into certain muscles. These are the muscles that can cause wrinkles, and the injection causes the muscles to relax. Skin becomes softer and smoother.
How Does it Work?
The injection works by causing the nerves in the muscles to stop sending signals to the muscle to contract. When the muscle does not get a signal from the neurotransmitters in the nerves, it does not contract and wrinkles are not formed.
How Are Injections Given?
The first step in the process is to have a consultation where we discuss your specific needs and expectations for the treatment. This way we can determine if this is the right approach for you. In preparation for the injection, we apply an ice pack to the area being treated. This helps to numb the skin and also helps prevent any bruising. Then we use a very small needle to inject the product directly into the facial muscles.
The whole appointment only takes about 20 minutes, and the injections themselves only take a few minutes to complete.
What Are the Results?
Using anti-wrinkle injections is a simple way to give you a look that is both natural and youthful. Our skilled professionals know how to provide anti-wrinkle injection services in a way that does not cause a dramatic change but instead with results that look like you only with fewer wrinkles. You should see some results within a few days and full results in about 5 to 8 days.
What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are an injectable substance that helps to plump and smooth the skin on your face. This approach is meant to plump out wrinkles and also restore youthful contours to the skin of the face.
How Are Dermal Fillers Administered?
Dermal fillers are given by injections to the area needing treatment. The injections are given with tiny needles directly under the skin. The treatment is very quick, and you can go back to your normal activities afterwards.
What Are the Results?
The results of dermal filler treatment are facial skin that looks renewed and revitalized as well as fewer wrinkles. Shallow areas of the face are also contoured and plumped for a more youthful appearance. The facial structure looks younger as well. There is no time spent waiting for results. They are visible instantly.
Once the treatment is completed, there is no downtime. You will be able to go right back to your regular activities. Some people have the treatment done during a lunch break and go right back to work. The results of your dermal filler will last from about 6 months to 2 years. Most people come back after a year or 2 to have the treatment repeated so that results will not fade.
You can combine dermal filler treatments with anti-wrinkle injections. We will talk to you about this option during your consultation to discover if that is the best way of giving you the natural youthful skin you desire. Many patients like this combination for the treatment of more than one area or cause of wrinkles.
What Causes Wrinkles in the Forehead?
As your skin ages, you naturally lose substances that help keep it full and supple. This includes collagen, which your skin uses for healing and for remaining plump. Another substance your skin loses over time is hyaluronic acid, which also helps to keep skin youthful and wrinkle-free.
The contraction of muscles in your face when you make certain expressions can lead to wrinkles in your skin. These muscles contract in the same way over time, and this repetition can lead to lines being formed.
Exposure to the sun dries your skin, creating lines and wrinkles. When you go out in the sun be sure to wear protection for your face in the form of a hat and sunscreen to minimize this damage. This remains true after your treatments and will allow your results to last longer.
Genetics also plays a role in wrinkles. You may have inherited skin from a parent or another family member that is naturally prone to wrinkles.
