What are Anti-Wrinkle Injections?
Wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. It’s not just about cellular changes, collagen depletion, or damage caused by free radicals. When you frown or concentrate, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. And when you squint, the muscles around your eyes contract and cause crow’s feet.
Anti- Wrinkle Injection works beneath the skin’s surface and targets the underlying muscle activity that causes frown lines and crow’s feet to form over time.
Your doctor will inject the botulinum toxin into the muscles that cause frown lines and crow’s feet lines, temporarily reducing the activity of those muscles. The result is a reduction in the appearance of those lines.
At Good Place Clinic & Spa, we aim to achieve natural-looking results, avoiding the ‘frozen’ look that gains so much media coverage these days – sometimes for the wrong reasons. Our aesthetic practitioners can help you treat wrinkles naturally and in a non-invasive way.
