Anti-Wrinkle Injections For the Upper Face

The signs of ageing are often the result of changes well beneath the skin. Anti-wrinkle injections can tackle fine lines and deep furrows in the upper facial area by relaxing the muscles underneath.

CREATING A RELAXED LOOK

Lines on the forehead, crow's feet and those deep furrows between the eyes ('glabellar' lines) are the result of repeated muscle contractions from our facial expressions. When our skin loses elasticity as well, these lines stay put, even when our face is at rest.

Naturally enough, these are areas many women would like to do something positive about, but in a way that doesn't look 'frozen' and with natural-looking results.

Anti-wrinkle injections are a quick, non-surgical option for smoothing out the upper face area. Minute injections into the muscles underneath ease them into a state of relaxation. This effectively softens the appearance of lines and creates smoother looking skin.

Dermal fillers can also be used in this area, to restore the volume and moisture loss that also accompanies the passage of time. They can add volume above your eyes to achieve a less tired look and, when combined with anti-wrinkle injections, contribute to an overall rejuvenation of the upper face.

Simple and in most cases painless, anti-wrinkle injections usually show initial effects after a couple of days with full impact visible at between 7 and 14 days. Effects last between three to four months and gradually wear off over time. If you have regular anti-wrinkle injections, the effects may last a little longer.
