Pulling faces with Holly Copping

Pulling facesEvery time you smile, frown, raise an eyebrow or pull a face, chances are you’re creating wrinkles. Frown lines, crow’s feet and worry lines are all the result of our everyday facial expressions. When the muscles in your face contract, they make your skin crease and contort, and eventually lines and wrinkles will start to appear.

The ageing process and sun exposure are also particularly unkind to our skin, breaking down collagen and elastin and resulting in a loss of our skin’s natural elasticity.

If you’re worried about fine lines and wrinkles, there are treatments available – including as anti-wrinkle injections – to help give you crease-free, supple looking skin.

How can I get rid of my wrinkles?

Anti-wrinkle injections can be used to help soften wrinkles, and can even be used as a preventative measure.

These injections are the only treatment that specifically targets the muscle actions that cause wrinkles.

How does it work?

The active ingredient in these injections causes temporary muscle weakening.

When it is injected directly into the muscles that contract to cause wrinkles, it relaxes the muscles, to give you smoother looking skin.

What are the results like?

For many people, anti-wrinkle injections are a perfect solution to combat wrinkles, particularly on the upper face for crow’s feet and frown lines.

Well-administered anti-wrinkle injections will not leave you expressionless as only tiny amounts are injected into very specific areas, leaving the majority of the facial muscles unaffected.

Maximum effects can be seen in around 10-14 days and the treatment usually lasts for 3-5 months.

Are there any risks?

Like any procedure, there are some risks involved in anti-wrinkle injections.

Some people experience drooping eyebrows or eyelids, or dry or excessively teary eyes – but thankfully these are only temporary.

More serious side effects may include muscle weakness in areas of the body that have not been treated, and flu-like symptoms.

Make sure you consult with your GP before you go ahead with your treatment, and do your research to choose a reputable practitioner.
