Anti-wrinkle injections first made an appearance in the late 1990s and are still one of the most effective ways to treat fine lines and wrinkles across areas such as the forehead, eyes and mouth.
The lower half of the face can be particularly prone to noticeable signs of ageing but anti-wrinkle injections can be used to create a slimmer, more defined appearance in no time at all.
The 5 Main Causes of Wrinkles
Wrinkles are a natural part of the ageing process but there are a few additional factors that can add extra lines and wrinkles to the mix.
Facial expressions. We use our facial muscles more than we realise and as we age, the more we will have used the muscles that help us to express ourselves. Expression lines can become more prominent the older we get.
UV exposure. Exposure to EVA and UVB radiation can drastically thin the skin and break down the collagen that’s responsible for a youthful appearance.
Sleeping. Believe it or not, sleep also plays a role in the number of wrinkles you have. When your face is continuously pressed into a pillow every night for a decade or two, it will start to create additional lines on your face.
Gravity. Drooping cheeks and jowls as well as the formation of eyelid wrinkles are the result of gravity.
Loss of facial volume. As we age, we gradually start to lose volume in areas such as the cheeks, forehead and eyes, which can make us appear much older.
How Anti-Wrinkle Injections Can Rejuvenate the Lower Face
Here are just a few of the ways that London Cosmetic Clinic Southport & Gold Coast can use anti-wrinkle injections to revive and tighten the lower half of your face.
Reduction of Gummy Smiles. If you happen to have a high lip that shows off more gum than you would like when you smile, anti-wrinkle injections can be used to soften the muscles that cause a gummy smile.
Remove upper lip wrinkles. Also referred to as smoker’s lines, wrinkles on the upper lip can drastically alter your appearance, making you look much older than you are. Anti-wrinkle injections are able to soften the pucker of your lips and smooth out the wrinkles on your upper lip.
Reduce a dimpled chin. As we age, the chin can start to dimple and fold, which creates an almost orange peel-type effect. Anti-wrinkle injections can be used to target the mentalis muscle, which will soften the chin and open up the lower half of your face.
Slim the jawline. A square jaw might look great on a man but on a woman, it’s not always ideal. If you clench your jaw or grind your teeth in your sleep, your jaw can start to take on a more square appearance. Anti-wrinkle injections are able to soften the muscles that are responsible for this grinding and clenching, will soften the jaw and the shape of your face.
