The Benefits of Anti-Wrinkle Injections

Anti-wrinkle injections are an increasingly popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment. As the name suggests, their aim is to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. The procedure involves injecting a purified botulinum toxin into specific facial muscles. Dr Tass Cosmetic & Skin Clinics invites you to learn a little bit more about making your wrinkles disappear and other benefits you might find.

Reduce Fine Lines

The first pro most of us think of when speaking of anti-wrinkle injections is their ability to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. They can target specific facial muscles that cause fine lines. Therefore, these injections are great for targetting crow’s feet, forehead lines and frown lines. The skin in these areas is smoothed out as the muscles are relaxed, resulting in a rejuvenated appearance.


Minimise Muscle Movement and Prevent Future Wrinkles

Anti-wrinkle injections can also prevent the formation of deeper wrinkles. By temporarily paralysing the targeted muscles, the injections discourage repetitive facial movements that contribute to the development of wrinkles over time. This preventive effect can help people maintain a smoother complexion and delay the signs of aging.


Minimise the Appearance of a “Gummy Smile”

A “gummy smile” is when excessive gum tissue is visible above the upper teeth, making the teeth look shorter and the smile less balanced. Some people suffer from self-confidence issues as a result. This can be addressed with anti-wrinkle injections strategically administered into the muscles that elevate the upper lip. By precisely injecting tiny volumes of the botulinum toxin into these muscles, their activity is temporarily reduced, resulting in a subtle downward movement of the upper lip when smiling.


Change the Appearance of Your Jaw With Masseter Botox

Masseter Botox injections can change the appearance of your jaw. By targeting the masseter muscles (the muscles that help you chew), these injections help to slim down a square-shaped jawline, resulting in a more defined and aesthetically pleasing facial contour. Lots of people book this procedure to help manage tension associated with stress.
