Anti-Wrinkle Treatments

SMOOTHS OUT FINE LINES & WRINKLES

Wrinkle Reduction Treatments  are a nonsurgical, anti-aging procedure that can assist in reducing the appearance of moderate to severe lines and wrinkles. Anti-Wrinkle Treatments can assist both men and women with the following: fine lines and wrinkles, forehead creases, crow’s feet, bunny lines and hyperhidrosis to the underarms (excessive sweating).

Anti-Wrinkle Treatments have minimal downtime, with results being seen as early as 2 weeks post-treatment.

Note: All cosmetic aesthetic consultations are conducted by a qualified medical professional who will recommend suitable treatments to each client which may or may not include an S4 medication. 

How Do These Anti-wrinkle Treatments Work?

Anti-Wrinkle treatments are primarily used for lines and wrinkles that appear when we use our muscles repeatedly to make facial expressions. They’re used to relax specific facial muscles that cause expression lines. Because the muscles are relaxed their movement is restricted, preventing future facial expressions which lead to lines and wrinkles. Consequently, the lines and wrinkles gradually smooth and new ones are prevented from forming. Treatments are delivered where desired most. Anti wrinkle treatments can work to either weaken and relax – not paralyse – the muscles that cause wrinkles to appear, or boost collagen to create volume improving skin elasticity, texture, and firmness, resulting in a natural and youthful appearance.

Benefits of Anti-wrinkle Treatments

Anti-wrinkle treatments offer a range of benefits beyond just targeting muscle movement. While they effectively relax facial muscles to diminish expression lines, there are also treatments designed to boost collagen production, which plays a crucial role in maintaining skin elasticity and firmness.

By emphasising both aspects of anti-wrinkle treatments, we can highlight their comprehensive approach to combating signs of aging. Relaxing muscles helps smooth existing lines and prevents the formation of new ones by limiting repetitive facial expressions. Meanwhile, treatments that stimulate collagen production contribute to the skin’s overall health and resilience, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and promoting a more youthful complexion.

By combining these approaches, individuals can achieve not only a reduction in wrinkles but also improved skin texture and tone. This dual-action approach addresses both the cause and the effect of aging, providing a more holistic solution for maintaining youthful-looking skin.

Pre + Post Treatment Care

Pre Treatment

  • The most important rule when doing a course of laser hair removal sessions is to avoid any kind of sun exposure, use of self-tanners (including spray tans), and solariums. These can all greatly affect laser treatment, as laser is attracted to dark pigment and is unable to decipher between the pigment in dark hair and tanned/darker skin. To reduce any risk of skin burning or pigmenting due to incorrect preparation, your clinician must be aware if you have had recent UV exposure or are wearing fake tan. An SPF30 or greater sunscreen must be used daily and frequently to protect the treated area throughout the course of treatments.
  • As waxing, plucking and threading temporarily remove the hair from the follicle before it grows back, it is imperative to not pursue such methods for a minimum of 4 weeks prior to laser hair removal in the treatment area. If there is no hair in the follicle at the time of treatment, then the laser is unable to successfully target and destroy growth. The use of shaving or depilatory creams on the treatment area is not a problem, as they do not remove the hair from the follicle.
  • It is recommended only to remove surface hair by shaving, depilatory creams, or clippering the treated areas during the course of treatment.
  • Shave the area to be treated 24 hours prior to your treatment; this will promote a stronger current in the laser which will mean better results.
  • Avoid partaking in any activities prior to coming in for treatment that will make you hot and sweaty, such as exercising or going to spas and saunas.
