Today I wanted to talk to you about a topic we get asked about all the time. Anti-wrinkle injections. But what are they and what is the right treatment for you?
To put it simply anti-wrinkle injections are a quick and affordable way of erasing frown lines, smile lines around the eyes, lines around the jaw, forehead, lift the chin, soften the jaw line and lift or drop the eyebrows.
It’s important to know that there are 2 main types of anti-wrinkle injections available in Australia.
These are Botulinum toxin and dermal fillers. Botulinum Toxin is commonly known as Botox.
It is also important to know that Botox is actually a brand and is JUST ONE OF THE main brands in Australia that use Botulinum Toxin, the other is Dysport. But stay tuned for a new brand releasing later in the year. There are only small differences between Botox and Dysport.
Botox or Dysport work to completely relax targeted muscles. This means that part of the body doesn’t usually move too much. Like when you cant see the lines in someone’s forehead when they frown.
Now there are other anti-wrinkle injections know as dermal fillers. These are gels with hyaluronic acid base that are injected into certain areas of the face to fill in wrinkles or correct deep scars.
Dermal fillers can also be used to enhance lips, reconstructing noses, chins, jawline sculpting and non-surgical rhinoplasty.
Did you know that Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is naturally found in the body?
