Some facial muscles over time become stronger with use and may cause you to look wrinklier, tired, anxious or upset - even when you are not actually experiencing these emotions. When small doses of the anti-wrinkle injection are targeted into specific facial muscles, they relax and leave you with a softer, more youthful and pleasing facial expression. Eventually, the effects of the anti-wrinkle injection wear off and doses must be repeated in order to maintain the positive results. The most common uses for anti-wrinkle injections are the angry or frown lines (between the eyes or glabella region), the worry lines (forehead), the crows feet (around the eyes), and for brow lifting.
Over time, facial skin often loses its natural elasticity and volume. A dermal filler is an injectable gel with smooth consistency that helps to instantly restore the skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds. Eventually, the effects of the filler wear off with time as the substance is metabolised and doses must be repeated in order to maintain the positive results. The most common uses for fillers are the smile lines (nasolabial folds or the creases that run from the nose to the corner of the mouth), the lips (to create a fuller luscious appearance), the jowls (marionette lines), brow and cheek augmentation.
