3 things you need to know about anti-wrinkle injections
Fine lines and wrinkles are a concern of millions of women and men. Today, anti-wrinkle injections are an effective treatment to reduce the signs of ageing. These lines can typically be seen between the eyebrows (frown lines) on the forehead, and around the eyes (crow’s feet). Lines on the upper lip, bunny lines on the nose, cobblestoning of the chin, and bands in the neck can also be treated.

Relaxing facial muscles can reduce and limit the size and depth of facial wrinkles for a more youthful look. Small amounts of anti-wrinkle injections over time provide great benefit to subtly freshen the appearance. With less movement, the skin surface gradually smooths out and the lines begin to fade.

Here are three things you may not know about Anti-wrinkle Injections:

1. There has been much debate as to when anti-wrinkle injections should be administered. Typically, they are given once the lines and wrinkles in your face are apparent enough that they are compromising your desired appearance. Preventative anti-wrinkle use is becoming more and more popular, aiming to stop wrinkles from forming before they even begin. At the Institute, we are led by our individual patients on when it is the right time to explore anti-wrinkle injections. Objectively, the best time to consider small, regular treatments is your early to mid thirties as it’s an excellent preventative ageing strategy.
2. There has been more than a 300% increase in the use of anti-wrinkle injections for men in the past decade. There are many reasons for this increased demand. Men want to look and feel younger, more attractive and more confident and report wanting to feel more competitive in the workforce by looking more youthful and rested.
3. As with Dermal Fillers, it is important to find an experienced specialist who will take the time to understand your treatment goals and develop a treatment plan that is right for you. A good result should be subtle but leave you looking fresher and more relaxed. You should not lose the ability to make normal facial expressions and should never look ‘frozen.’ 
Make sure you consult with a Consultant Dermatologist or Plastic surgeon, who is conservative in their approach, an expert in facial anatomy and who individualises your treatment.
