Despite their name, anti-wrinkle injections have a multitude of uses outside of wrinkle reduction. From contouring your face to lifting and accentuating your best features, here are our top four ways we can use anti-wrinkle injections to transform your face:
1. LIFT YOUR BROWS
Anti-wrinkle injections can have a ‘lifting’ effect on the eyebrows when injected into particular areas of the forehead to prevent brows from pulling downward. This creates a beautiful arch that can help to accentuate your facial features. Likewise, anti-wrinkle injections can also be used in reverse by being administered into the depressor of the brow to reduce overarching caused by ageing.
2. REDUCE A ‘GUMMY’ SMILE
Does your top gum line show too much when you smile? You could be suffering from a gummy smile, medically defined as an excessive gingival display. If this sounds like you then anti-wrinkle injections, combined with dermal filler injections can help enhance your lips and reduce the appearance of too much gum above your top teeth when you smile. Anti-wrinkle injections can be administered to the area above your top lip and underneath your nose, relaxing the muscles there and preventing overuse, while dermal filler can be injected into your lips to plump and add volume.
3. DEFINE YOUR JAW
Anti-wrinkle injections in Perth are an effective treatment for slimming your jawline, as well as treating an overactive and prominent masseter (chewing muscles) that can cause teeth grinding and clenching and lead to enlarged side cheeks. When injected into the masseter, anti-wrinkle injections can relax the muscle, resulting in a slimmer, more defined jawline. As an added bonus, the injections can also prevent teeth grinding and clenching.
4. SMOOTH WRINKLES AND FINE LINES
Finally, the main use of anti-wrinkle injections – reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Whether it’s pesky crow’s feet, bunny lines from scrunching your nose too much or forehead wrinkles and frown lines, anti-wrinkle injections are an ideal treatment for preventing and reducing unwanted wrinkles and fine lines.
