Anti-Wrinkle Injections

Anti WrinkleAnti-wrinkle injections can be used to change the balance of your facial muscles to give a brow lift, correct a gummy smile, narrow your lower face and enhance your look.

  • Frown and Glabellar lines
  • Crows Feet
  • Nasal/Bunny Lines
  • Brow Lift
  • Lip vertical lines
  • Masseter muscle (to reduce size of lower face)
  • To correct a gummy smile

How Anti-Wrinkle Injections Work:

Anti-wrinkle injections prevent the release of the neurotransmitter Acetyl Choline in the synapse of nerve endings in proximity to muscle motor end plates.

Most wrinkles are formed by the underlying movement of facial muscles, by preventing the contraction of the muscle through anti-wrinkle injections the muscle cannot contract and no wrinkle formation is the desired result.

The muscles around the face act in concert and opposition, to the functions of the underlying structures of the eye, nose and mouth.  Together with expression of emotion such as fear, anger and happiness the facial muscles contract in unique ways. An understanding of the structures of the face and this muscle structure and function is important when using anti-wrinkle injections to achieve balance in injecting, not freezing a face but minimising wrinkles, opening up the eyelids with a brow lift and giving a overall freshness to your face. As a specialist Plastic Surgeon Dr Jack Zoumaras will ensure that your anti-wrinkle injections are not just anti-wrinkle but take advantage of the unique muscle harmony that only a Plastic Surgeon would know.
