FROWN LINE ANTI-WRINKLE INJECTIONS
The Glabella is the area between your eyebrows, just above your nose. Over time, with repeated frowning movements, deep creases can form in this area. Frown lines in this area can result in an angry and less youthful appearance. Relaxing this muscle can soften these lines and prevent any more from forming.
The upper face is the most common area treated with Anti-Wrinkle Injections. We show most expression with our muscles up here (eeeekkkk). Small injections are made directly into the muscles to relax them and therefore smooth out those unwanted fine lines.
Australian Cosmetic Institute focuses on non-surgical cosmetic options. We pride ourselves on using the latest innovations and techniques to offer an extensive selection of cosmetic services that deliver results.
How anti-wrinkle injections work
As your skin ages, it loses its elasticity. Constant movement of the brow muscles or repeated frowning and squinting can create lines and wrinkles.
Wrinkle-reducing injections work by preventing muscles from contracting. It prevents the release of a chemical, acetylcholine, which is necessary to allow nerve impulses to send messages to muscles.
A muscle relaxant is a solution that relaxes the overactive facial muscles that create crows feet, frown lines, forehead lines and other wrinkles, in order to leave your skin looking smooth and supple whilst helping fine lines to fade and disappear.
Patients with ‘Dynamic Wrinkles’ (fine lines formed from the use and movement of muscles) show most improvement with anti-wrinkle injections.
