It’s not about getting rid of every miniscule line. It’s about the prevention of those deeper lines that might bother you. Over time, your skin’s natural ability to protect itself reduces. Muscle contractions and movement leave their mark. Anti-wrinkle injections are a non-invasive, quick, affordable and effective way to help reduce and prevent wrinkle formation.
5 Benefits to getting rid of wrinkles
1. Anti-wrinkle Injections are Preventative
You don’t have to have wrinkles to know you don’t want them in your future. While their main purpose is to improve or temporarily remove existing lines, anti-wrinkle injections can be used as a preventative measure to help soften the expression lines that form when your face moves and put the formation of future lines on pause. Some of us have faces that are naturally very expressive and over time, this can lead to the appearance of wrinkles when your face is at rest. If that’s you, anti-wrinkle treatments can be an effective preventative treatment to consider.
2. Your Resting Face Will Look More Rested
With both age and repetitive muscle movement, lines settle into the face and are visible even at rest. It’s these static, 24/7 lines that can make your face look tired and fatigued. By softening those lines and wrinkles in the skin, your face looks instantly fresher, more youthful, and relaxed. Cue compliments.
3. Shape and Symmetry
Anti-wrinkle injections can do more than just reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles; they can also be used to lift certain parts of the face and balance asymmetrical features. Some of the more common treatment techniques include lifting heavy brows that can make the eyes appear smaller, softening a pronounced jawline, slimming the face, and correcting a gummy smile. Thin lips can also be treated to give the illusion of more volume.
4. Results are Not Permanent
As the effects of this treatment aren’t permanent, we find that many of our first-time clients feel less intimidated by anti-wrinkle injections, compared to other more permanent cosmetic procedures. At Laser Clinics Australia, we take a customised approach for each client and we’re able to easily customise and adapt your treatment plan over time by increasing or decreasing dosage and tweaking treatment areas.
5. A Confidence Boost
An important side effect worth mentioning: confidence. After anti-wrinkle treatments, we’ve found that both men and women report feeling more positive and less self-conscious, more confident in their appearance. Some added benefits of treating targeted muscles can include a reduction in excessive sweating (in areas such as the underarms) and a reduction in habitual teeth grinding when treating the jaw muscles.
How it Works
Our face uses over 40 different muscles and it’s the repeated movement and contraction of those facial muscles when we smile, laugh, squint, and frown that, over time, results in visible—and often unwanted— lines, folds, and wrinkles in the skin.
Anti-wrinkle injections are one of the most popular anti-ageing treatments we offer at Laser Clinics Australia. As far as anti-ageing treatments go, they’re targeted and effective—with minimal downtime.
Anti-wrinkle injections employ a purified protein to relax specific muscles so they’re unable to contract, preventing them from creasing the skin. When injected into targeted areas in small doses, this purified protein has a signal-blocking effect which stops the nerves from communicating with the muscle, pausing that repetitive movement, relaxing that muscle, and in turn, softening those visible lines on the face.
Not only can they significantly improve the signs of premature ageing but anti-wrinkle injections also play an important preventative role. If a muscle can’t contract then it can’t make an expression, like a frown or an eye squint, stalling future lines from forming earlier than they might naturally.
Anti-wrinkle injections are a particularly targeted treatment; the protein we use can only influence the movement of the muscles beneath the lines where it’s been injected so the surrounding muscles of the face move naturally as normal.
The overall effect: fresh and natural, smooth-looking skin.
As some faces are more expressive than others, lines aren’t purely a sign of biological ageing, nor are they exclusive to certain age groups. However, at Laser Clinics Australia we don’t treat anyone under 18, women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, or those suffering from certain autoimmune illnesses.
It’s important to note that not all lines can be improved with anti-wrinkle injections, particularly those caused by reduced skin elasticity, and tissue volume loss. It’s for these reasons that we recommend an in-clinic consultation with one of our highly skilled doctors or registered nurses to ensure we can prescribe the most satisfactory and effective treatment for you.
