The skin creases in areas of greatest use where facial muscles are repeatedly used throughout our life. As we get older the ageing process causes collagen and elastin production in the skin to decrease and become damaged with overuse resulting in the permanent lines.
Injections that relax the muscle (commonly known as Botox) are our most prevalent anti-ageing procedures to minimize the formation of wrinkles and to soften existing lines. The most common areas for treatment are the Glabella (frown lines between the eyes), Peri-Orbital area (crow’s feet) and the forehead.
