Wrinkle Reduction

The many muscles that lie just underneath the skin of the face are referred to as the muscles of facial expression. As they contract, they allow us to communicate our expressions.  We show our surprise when we raise our eyebrows, our displeasure or confusion when we frown and our happiness when we smile. 

As a result of their complex contractions the overlying skin moves causing temporary wrinkles.  As we age these wrinkles can become permanently etched on our faces and we call these lines static lines. 

The age when someone develops static lines (lines that are present whether the muscle is contracting or not) is dependent on your overall skin health, how much sun exposure you have had over your lifetime and your genetics.  Anti-wrinkle injections are a quick, simple solution to relax the muscles and significantly improve your overall look.

 

Anti-wrinkle injections work by temporarily paralysing the facial muscles that cause wrinkles.  It is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments as it is an easy and effective way to reduce fine lines and wrinkles without surgery.  
  • Frown lines otherwise known as Glabella lines
  • Forehead lines
  • Crows feet
  • Bunny lines
  • Platysmal bands which are the vertical lines on our neck
  • Gummy Smile which is showing too much gum when we smile widely
  • Upper lip lines otherwise known as smokers lines
  • Downturn of the corners of the mouth
  • Can be used to slim the face if there is too much bulk on the cheeks causing a square face
  • Bruxism or teeth grinding that can cause tension and headaches
  • Excessive sweating known as hyperhidrosis

At Papillon we use very fine needles, and make up the  product using preserved saline which means that the discomfort is kept at a minimum.  

Immediately after the injections you will notice tiny red swellings at the injection site which will usually disappear after a few minutes.  Bruising rarely occurs.  Occasionally you may experience a mild headache for a short time after the injections particularly if its your first time.  

It is recommended to  avoid strenuous exercise for 24-48 hrs.  It is also advisable to avoid swimming pools for 24 hrs and saunas and spas.  You should aslo avoid applying makeup to the area injected for at least 4 hrs. 

To maintain the result we would recommend treatments every 3-5 months for most clients 

In most cases you can expect to see changes in 1-3 days with the maximal effect at 2 weeks.  We endeavour to review all patients at 2 weeks to check the results particularly if this is the first time you have had this treatment.   

Immediately after the injections you will notice tiny red swellings at the injection sites which will usually settle after a few minutes.  Bruising rarely occurs. Occasionally you may experience a mild headache or a feeling of heaviness across the forehead, after the injections particularly if its your first time.
