What Areas Can Anti-Wrinkle Injections Treat?

As facial aesthetic experts here in Essex, we offer a range of beautifying cosmetic treatments that can help enhance your natural appearance while boosting your confidence along the way. In this post, our skin doctors focus on anti-wrinkle injections, answering some quick questions about them from how long they last to what they can treat.

What are anti-wrinkle injections?

They’re a simple procedure that involves injecting tiny amounts of wrinkle relaxers into targeted areas of skin. These work to soften the appearance of lines and wrinkles, by reducing the movement of the muscles that cause them. When done expertly – as you can expect with our Essex skin doctors – you’ll still have movement in your face without looking fake, but can expect smoother skin and a more rested appearance.

Why have the procedure?

There are lots of different reasons. It might be that you feel you’ve developed wrinkles before your time, or the lines you have are deepening, or you just want to prevent wrinkles from developing in areas of your face that are particularly expressive. Anti-wrinkle injections can also help elevate results from other procedures, such as dermal fillers.

How does the treatment work?

After a consultation, we’ll work out the best areas to treat to give you the best results. On the day of your appointment, we’ll make you as comfortable as possible – using numbing agents if needed – and give you the relevant aftercare advice. Results from wrinkle relaxers typically last several months, but we’ll guide you on this during your session.

Which areas can you treat?

The most popular areas for wrinkle relaxers are the brows, forehead and around the eyes. Results can make skin appear smoother, softer and more youthful. The treatment also has a few medical applications, too – for instance, treating excessive sweating and migraines.

Can you reverse the effects?

You might have heard of filler dissolvers, but these are for hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers and lip fillers. With anti-wrinkle injections, they’ll need to be broken down by the body, though this usually takes a matter of months.
