WHAT IS WRINKLE REDUCTION?

deep-skin-lines

Wrinkle reduction can be achieved by treatments using botulinum toxin A (commonly referred to as ‘botox’). This is a medicine which acts to weaken the muscles that cause facial expressions, such as forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet (fine lines around the eyes) and frown lines. Wrinkle reduction treatments are all about prevention. It’s a common misconception that people think you should get these treatments when you have wrinkles but the whole point of ‘botox’ is to prevent wrinkles from forming in the first place! Here’s some more information on wrinkle reduction treatments:

  • The treatment is measured in ‘units’ rather than mls (which is what dermal filler treatments are measured in)
  • Treatments can also be used to reduce the appearance of gums when smiling (also known as the gummy smile) as well dimpling around the chin and nasal lines when you smile (called bunny lines)
  • Botulinum toxin A can also be applied to the masseter muscle in the jaw to reduce tooth grinding (bruxism) but also to achieve a slimmer jaw look
  • Botulinum toxin A can be used to treat excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) in the armpit area (really useful around summer!)
  • Treatments usually last around 4-6 months
  • Some swelling is common and this usually takes only a few hours to settle
  • There is usually no downtime and most people can carry on their day as usual after the treatment
