Injectable treatments have become very popular in recent years, as these formulas have been designed to achieve superb results nearly instantly. With many injectable options on the market today, it can be difficult to know which formula will serve your specific needs best. To help you make the right choice in procedures, check out the basic differences between wrinkle relaxers
What are Wrinkle Relaxers?
Wrinkle relaxers work by relaxing facial muscles that lead to the formation of some types of wrinkles. Known as “dynamic” wrinkles, these lines commonly appear on the forehead, between the eyebrows and in the outer corners of the eyes. In most cases, the wrinkles are only seen when certain facial expressions are made. However, over time, these lines can become more deeply etched in the skin so they are visible most or all of the time.
Wrinkle relaxers are injected directly into the facial muscles, rather than the wrinkles themselves. As the muscles relax, fine lines and facial creases are effectively smoothed away. At Allure Clinic, we use only the most purified formulas of wrinkle relaxers, ensuring your results are safe, effective and natural.
What about Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers provide support to the underlying skin structure, smoothing away lines and restoring youthful volume from the inside out. At Allure, we use hyaluronic acid-based fillers for our treatments. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance produced by the body, although amounts tend to diminish as we age. By restoring hyaluronic acid to the underlying skin layers, we can
effectively turn back the clock and restore volume for natural, beautiful results. Dermal fillers can be used for “static” wrinkles, those lines that are present all the time. Static wrinkle usually appear in the lower half of the face, around the nose, mouth and chin. In addition, dermal fillers can plump and add definition to the lips or create more prominent cheekbones. Small amounts can even be used in the delicate skin under the eyes to reduce a hollowed look and produce a refreshed appearance.
Both dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxers can be administered in just a few minutes and require no downtime afterward. Because dermal fillers tend to be injected more deeply, local anesthetic is provided prior to the procedure to ensure patient comfort. Results of both treatments are usually seen within a day or two and may last many months before a touch-up treatment is needed. Injectable treatments are a relatively quick, minimally-invasive way to enhance your appearance in many ways. To learn more about these procedures, contact Allure Clinic on 1300 662 960.
