Frequently Asked Questions
Anti-wrinkle treatment is one of the most popular and sought-after cosmetic treatments. Here are some of the more frequently asked questions we get at Ashbury Cosmetics in Brisbane and on the Gold Coast:
How are wrinkles formed?
Wrinkles appear on our face for two reasons: age and facial expressions. Wrinkles that have formed due to facial expressions are called dynamic lines. When we are young our skin springs back to its original position. As we get older dynamic lines remain and become static lines. Static lines are those that are visible when you aren’t making a facial expression.
This happens because the elasticity of our skin decreases with age. Read our Anti-Wrinkle 101 blog.
How to get rid of wrinkles?
Anti wrinkle treatment relaxes specific muscles that cause dynamic lines, once relaxed you cannot contract the muscles and continue to make the undesirable facial expression. This way the lines will—over time—smooth and new lines are prevented from forming.
Best treatment for wrinkles on face
Ever thought about getting anti wrinkle fillers but have been put off by the thought of that frozen look?
Anti wrinkle fillers work specifically on the treated muscles meaning any muscle left untreated shouldn’t be affected by anti-wrinkle treatment. Your Ashbury Cosmetics doctor will discuss with you your desired outcome and determine which the best dose is for you.
Anti wrinkle injections side effects?
Occasionally you may develop a small temporary bruise at some injection sites. A mild headache may also occur for 1 to 2 days. A transient eyelid droop may develop but this is an uncommon event. Skin rashes including rashes at the site of injection are rare. So too is itching.
Can anti wrinkle treatments be used in combination with our cosmetic treatments?
Depending on what your desired outcome is we may combine other cosmetic procedures with anti-wrinkle treatments. It is also best to talk with your Ashbury Cosmetics doctor to ascertain the best way to proceed with treatment.
How long do anti wrinkle injections last?
After anti-wrinkle treatment the frown lines are relaxed. The skin around the treated area will look smooth and less wrinkled. After anti-wrinkle treatment you will still be able to smile, frown and laugh as normal just without as much wrinkling of the skin in treated areas.
