Wrinkle reduction has been a key cosmetic treatment for decades. Though it’s mainly used as a beauty treatment for women, it’s also a procedure that men can benefit from. In more recent times, botox is often referred to as anti-wrinkle injections.
What is wrinkle reduction?
Wrinkle reduction treatments are used to reduce lines and wrinkles found in areas such as the eyes and forehead. It can also help you feel more refreshed and revitalised after treatment, helping improve your skin for tighter, smoother appearance. Finally, the treatment can stop some wrinkles from deepening further.
How does it work?
Simply put, wrinkle reduction treatments help relax the muscles that cause lines to appear. This is because the more you use certain muscles, the more those fine lines develop.
How long does it last?
Wrinkle reduction treatments can be done in minutes, with results developing over the first couple of weeks following the procedure. Most patients enjoy the results for several months. Wrinkle relaxers are renowned for being a safe, minimally invasive procedure with no downtime. If you want to maintain the results, you’ll need top-up appointments.
Are there side-effects?
Some people experience bruising and swelling after wrinkle relaxers, but these are usually mild and it’s rare to experience any serious side-effects.
Are there any alternatives?
If wrinkle relaxers aren’t for you, there are still ways you can help reduce lines and wrinkles, such as chemical peels. However, wrinkle reduction treatments are a good choice for those who want clear results, but prefer a minimally-invasive treatment. If you’re undecided about the treatment, it’s worth remembering that the results aren’t permanent, and your face will return to its natural state.
What else can wrinkle relaxers be used for?
As well as its uses as an anti-ageing treatment, wrinkle relaxers can also help combat muscle spasms, excessive sweating and headaches. It can also help subtly enhance the shape of the face by raising the tip of the nose or lip.
