For many patients, their first foray into injectables is usually via anti wrinkle treatments, and with good reason!
A drug that was, for decades used to treat medical conditions in the 1970s such as strabismus (cross eye) the rejuvenating cosmetic properties of the botulinum toxin was almost a fluke when scientists noticed it smoothed the frown lines in injected monkeys.
The face is one of the most mobile parts of our bodies. Humans are perhaps the only species that can engage in body language and related to that, have such variable emotions on our faces. So it makes sense that over time, the same muscles that enable us to indicate if we are happy, sad, angry and so on, will also, like grooves left by tyre tracks on a smooth surface, leave marks on our faces, in the form of wrinkles.
Having wrinkles when we express joy, sadness and anger is not unusual, babies and children do this too, it is only when these wrinkles and lines become imprinted into the skin, that they bother us. At Skin Essentials, we encourage softening movement, rather than freezing entire groups of muscles, which can lead to an odd looking face.
Over time, for those of us with very active, mobile faces, and with age, these repetitive movements leave their mark on our faces, initially mainly when animated and eventually, even at rest.
By the time I see someone, unless they are looking for preventive care, they come in because they get unsolicited comments on their appearance:
At Skin Essentials we stock all 3 popular brands available in Australia but principally use one that we believe yields the least stiff, most natural appearing results and which also has less evidence to suggest building eventual immunity to the drug, with decreased efficacy.
Prices are slightly variable, and as a general rule, they’re based on $15/unit.
