Aging lines and wrinkles on the upper face are the result of a multitude of aging factors. Loss of volume & repetitive muscle movements that occur with facial expressions such as frowning and squinting, are two common causes of line and wrinkle development.
Lines at the eye corner are often referred to as crow’s feet. Crows feet wrinkles can be softened by injecting anti-wrinkle medicine into the muscle that surrounds the eye. This treatment often lasts 3-4 months and is relatively painless. Extremely fine needles are used to directly treat the crows feet, and the procedure takes on average 20 minutes. The result is a relaxation of the muscle, so its contraction is much more relaxed and therefore a softening of the crow’s lines occurs.
Frown lines are also often called “11’s”, because often many people develop double lines. This is not true for all people and often it can just be one wrinkle between the brows that causes you concern. This line formation is secondary to the group of muscles within the frown area (also known as Glabella). If anti-wrinkle treatment is performed then the medication once injected works directly on the appropriate muscle that is responsible for the frown. Therefore, the site of needle injection is into the frown and bilaterally to brows. Usually five antiwrinkle injection treatments are administered and this procedure takes approximately 20 mins. The results should be a relaxation of the muscle and softening of the frown wrinkles.
Forehead lines which are usually horizontal can be a result of the active frontalis muscle which is pulling vertically from the brows up to the skull region. Wrinkles to the upper part of the face can often be hidden with a fringe. However, in some instances this is not the preferred option for the individual and the forehead wrinkles are extremely bothersome. This problem area is also suitable for anti-wrinkle treatment and as already mentioned this involves a number of fine needles to inject the medication to relax the muscle and softening the lines. This also takes approximately 20 mins and will last approximately 3-4 months.
There are several medications that can be used as an anti-wrinkle treatment. They work by severing the nerve connection to the muscle, providing reduction in muscle movement and subsequently a softening of the lines.
