You are starting to notice them more and more — those creases that line your skin. They usually appear anytime you smile or squint but recently, they seem to be entrenched within your skin. They are wrinkles and they are making you look and feel older.
Treating the natural signs of ageing has come a long way. Plenty of treatment options are available that can produce smoother skin and youthful qualities overall. While some patients may desire surgery to eliminate fine lines, you may want a minimally invasive option, which is usually achieved through anti-wrinkle injections.
What Do Anti-Wrinkle Injections Do?
You have likely heard of some of the more popular anti-wrinkle injections on the market. When injected in small and controlled amounts, the toxin prevents your muscles from moving by blocking the neurotransmitters that would normally signal them. Because the muscle is unable to contract, wrinkles cannot form.
Anti-wrinkle injections are designed specifically for muscles that, over time, have contracted too frequently but your ageing features may be occurring for reasons beyond muscle movement. At Bayside Cosmetic Medicine Clinic, your practitioner may utilise other treatment options to provide you with the best possible result.
Other treatment modalities include dermal fillers which replace and restore the hyaluronic acid that naturally occurs in your skin. Fillers are also capable of stimulating collagen and elastin, which rejuvenates damaged skin cells so that you achieve a smooth and healthy complexion. Together, anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers can reverse the hands of time.
Are You A Candidate for Injectable Treatment?
Whether or not you receive treatment with anti-wrinkle injections depends on the particular wrinkles you exhibit. Anti-wrinkle injections target the muscles which means that other fine lines that occur as a result of volume loss will require a different treatment method.
Your practitioner can examine the quality of your skin during a consultation. Your time together is a way for you to learn more about the injectable options available along with other methods that you may not have considered. Based on the severity of your wrinkles as well as your cosmetic goals, your practitioner may prescribe a certain number of units to help treat your wrinkles.
A consultation is of particular importance due to the unique nature of every injectable case. The number of units and the frequency of which you receive treatment all depends on your individual characteristics. Because the injections are temporary, you will need to receive re-treatment every few months and through a consultation, your practitioner can advise you on the amount of sessions that will benefit you the most.
Anti-wrinkle injections are a minimally invasive and highly effective way to treat the wrinkles making you appear older and you can find out whether they are right for you by contacting Bayside Cosmetic Medicine Clinic on (07) 3073 9240 and scheduling a consultation.Share on:
