3 most popular areas for anti wrinkle injections

Anti wrinkle injections in the form of Botox, Bocoture, Azzalure, and others have been around in the cosmetic industry for many years.

Why you might need it

As we get older, our faces show the effects of time. Simply laughing and frowning, or smoking and sun damage, exposes us to fine lines and wrinkles.

There are treatments aim to smooth these out, helping to turn back the clock a few years.

They are popular choice for those who want to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The benefits some of my patients experience are:

  • Reduction of the visible effects of ageing
  • Feeling you look younger, or closer to your actual age
  • Improved appearance
  • Greater self-esteem and self-confidence.

If you’re considering this type of treatment it’s important to have it done by a qualified medical practitioner.

Types of treatment

The two most common types of treatment are muscle relaxants and dermal fillers:

  • Muscle relaxants – These injections use the botulinum toxin (Botox) to block the nerve impulses that cause muscle contraction, leading to smoother looking skin.
  • Dermal fillers – are used to plump out wrinkles.

Anti-wrinkle injections take about 15 minutes to administer, but this can vary depending on the number of wrinkles treated.

The main areas I treat with anti wrinkle injections are Frown lines, medically known as the glabella complex consists of the medial brow depressors: corrugator supercilii, depressor supercilii, procerus, and the medial fibers of orbicularis oculi muscles; In some cases, nasalis fibers contribute to form the glabella complex.

The orbicularis oculi muscle surrounds the eye and is responsible for the closing of the eye. When this muscle is used, it shrinks around the eye and pulls the skin forward, causing crow’s feet to form.

3. Forehead botox treatments

Forehead wrinkles are caused by the action of the frontalis muscle on the forehead. This muscle contracts when we raise our eyebrows. The raising of this muscle pulls the skin of the forehead up and causes forehead wrinkles which appear as lines across our forehead.
