Most of the time, our wrinkles result from muscles of the face contracting forcefully and for a long time. Eventually, the muscles begin to stay contracted and the skin wrinkles deepen. Some people call the wrinkles “worry lines” but most people prefer to call them “gone”!
We treat wrinkles around the eyes, including “Crow’s Feet” and the line between the eyes, the wrinkles of the forehead. We can also treat gummy smiles and some other wrinkles.
There are many products that can be used for this, including the brand names, Xeomin®, Dysport® and Botox®.
We only use hyaluronic acid-based fillers. These attract water and plump out deep lines, the lips, and cheeks. Other fillers – not using hyaluronic acid – have a place and function but we prefer the HA products. You can expect these to last six to nine months but may last somewhat longer.
We prefer to numb the area to be treated to reduce the pain, but not everyone wants or needs that.
We always take pictures before treatment, then again a few weeks later – just so you can see the difference.
