Why Winter Is The Best Time For Anti-Wrinkle Injections
A recent study has revealed that those living in colder climates need a significantly lower quantity of Anti-wrinkle Injections to achieve effective paralysis of the facial muscles. Senior author, Raina Rodrigues, examined two groups of female patients after they had received Anti-wrinkle Injections to soften their vertical frown lines. The difference between the two groups: one was treated during winter in the UK, one during the summer months in Malta. Even when correcting for age, the UK-based group required a much smaller dosage of injectable solution to achieve effective results.
This is fantastic news for those of us living in the UK and on a quest for youthful-looking skin. Not only have Anti-wrinkle Injections been proven to minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, a reduced quantity of these during the winter months makes treatment even more affordable.
Take a look at the most popular facial areas that we treat with Anti-wrinkle Injections at North West Aesthetics below.
Anti-Wrinkle Injections: Forehead Creases
The horizontal lines that appear when we raise our eyebrows begin to establish their permanency when we reach our thirties. Most commonly the result of expressing emotion, sun damage and improper skincare, these lines only worsen over time.
Small amounts of solution injected into the forehead inhibit the frontalis muscle from elevating the eyebrows, smoothing away existing wrinkles and preventing new ones from forming. Our Anti-wrinkle Injections for forehead creases start at £115.
The dreaded 11s. As the skin in between the eyebrows thins with age, two vertical lines caused by recurrent squinting begin to form. Commonly known as frown lines, or 11 lines due to their resemblance to the number, these wrinkles indicate a loss of elasticity in the skin tissue.
Anti-wrinkle Injections block signals from the nerves to the glabellar muscles, causing localised muscle relaxation that smooths the overlying skin and reduces the appearance of these vertical lines. Our Anti-wrinkle Injections for frown lines start at £115.
These are fine lines that creep out from the corners of the eyes and create indentations similar in shape to the claws of a crow, hence their name. The skin around the eyes is thinner and more delicate than the rest of the face, making it more prone to the development of wrinkles. For this reason, crow’s feet, or laughter lines, are often one of the earliest signs of facial ageing.
In as little as two weeks, Anti-wrinkle Injections can reduce the appearance of fine lines that spread from the eye, in some cases eliminating them entirely. Once injected, the solution prevents the occurrence of these dynamic creases when we laugh or smile, prohibiting the development of new wrinkles. Prices start at £115.
Smoker’s lines do not only affect smokers, however, the repeated act of drawing in cigarette smoke is thought to intensify the depth of the lines etched onto the lips. A loss of volume in the lips and repeated muscular activity around the mouth contribute to their development.
Anti-wrinkle Injections have been found to be effective in minimising smoker’s lines by blocking nerve signals to the orbicularis oris muscle. Use of this injectable still allows for facial movement and does not impact on the functionality of the mouth or lips. We offer prices on request as the severity of an individual’s lip wrinkles varies person to person.
Lower Face Laxity
Skin laxity is caused by a loss of collagen and elastin, the proteins responsible for giving the skin its elasticity. Sagging skin pulls the face downwards and congregates around the jawline. Some people mistake this sign of ageing as weight gain.
Anti-wrinkle Injections effectively reduce lower face wrinkles and sagging skin by relaxing the muscles that pull down the jawline. The neck and lower face appear lifted, creating a more youthful appearance. Prices for this treatment are offered on request.
