Wrinkle relaxing injection
Deep wrinkles such as crows feet and frown lines are caused by overactive muscle movement which gradually wear away the collagen in the skin, causing the skin to sink and wrinkles to appear.
The Treatment Botulinium toxin, is used to reduce muscle contraction by injecting it directly into the wrinkle. It temporarily relaxes the muscles thus softening existing lines. The result is a more youthful look. This treatment has been used to treat over 1 million patients worldwide for more than 11 years.
How Long Will It Last?
The treatment generally takes 5-8 days to work and lasts between 3-4 months. However to prolong the benefits an extended course of treatments is recommended.
Dermal fillers are injected treatments to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. These can be used on ‘resting’ lines in the face like deep smile lines, smoker’s lines and worry lines. They are injected into the wrinkle to eliminate or soften it, they can also be used for a certain amount of re-modeling such as enhancing the lips. It is effective and safe, it contains no animal products.
Juvéderm® ULTRA is a new generation of dermal fillers from ALLERGAN, a world leader in surgical and non-surgical aesthetic products. It’s a natural, biodegradable gel that flows easily into your skin, instantly filling out those troublesome lines leaving a smooth and natural look and feel. So, you’ll notice an immediate difference after just one treatment.
Possibly the biggest difference is that ALLERGAN have asked patients what they want, the most common request is that the injection experience is more comfortable. ALLERGAN listened to this feedback and have added lidocaine, an anaesthetic commonly used by dentists and doctors for local numbing to Juvéderm® ULTRA in order to improve the experience, and results seen. The Juvéderm® family of products last longer than other formulas—at least 12 months due to the unique way they are made.
Juvéderm® ULTRA comes in three formulations for more natural-looking, customisable results.
