What Are Anti Wrinkle Injections?
Botox ® is Allergan's brand name for the protein and neurotoxin Botulinum Toxin, many of Jays clients do not realise that most of the time when clients have a 'Botox' treatment the product used may not actually be the brand Botox.
There are actually a wide range of products available on the market such as Azzulre, Dysport and Boccouture- Jay uses different products for different clients depending on whether they have had a Botox treatment before and how deeply set their lines and wrinkles are.
As we age our skin loses its elasticity (collagen) and dynamic lines/wrinkles begin to appear; these are caused by the movement of the muscles beneath the skin for example when frowning or smiling.
Muscle Relaxing Injections are an incredibly effective method of reducing the appearance of these expression lines by blocking the nerve impulses to the facial muscles and thereby relaxing the muscle and preventing it from moving too much beneath the skin, in turn this reduces the prominence of existing lines whilst inhibiting the formation of new wrinkles.
Another misconception that some of Jays clients have about Anti Wrinkle treatments is that you shouldn't start to have them performed until you have quite deeply set lines/wrinkles, however the correct time to begin to have this treatment is when your first see lines begin to appear- once a line/wrinkle is deeply set it is much more difficult (if not impossible) for the treatment to remove the line which will take more time as well as more money.
There are many different areas of the face and neck where a client can have Anti Wrinkle treatments and Jay will advise you during the consultation process on which areas she feels should be treated.
(Please see the image below which illustrates which areas of the face can be treated.)
