One of the first and most noticeable signs of ageing is the wrinkles that form between the brows; those around the eyes and on our foreheads.

Women are particularly attuned to these changes as we have to put on makeup, so are used to closely examining our skin on an almost daily basis. Frown lines, ‘crow’s feet’ around the eyes and horizontal lines on the forehead can appear as early as our 20s but are certainly very evident in our 30s and beyond.

Solution to Wrinkles at Cosmetic Doctor

Botox Treatment Areas

Cosmetic Doctor provide a range of solutions for temporary wrinkle reduction in the brow, eye and forehead area, and it can make a huge difference to the way you look. Results are subtle and natural, but patients invariably look fresher, younger, well-rested and in many cases, more cheerful once frown lines have softened.

Anti-wrinkle injectables such as botox are used in a very specific way to soften lines, and Dr. Fay is a skilled practitioner who can use the appropriate measure in just the right place to make sure her patients look great; not frozen or overdone.

How Botox Works to soften facial wrinkles

Lines and wrinkles on the face are caused by years of repeated muscle movements as we make facial expressions. When we smile, laugh, frown, and furrow our brows, our facial muscles are gently pulling on our skin. Over time, the constant repetition of the muscles contracting cause a fold to appear in the overlying skin. In order to reduce these wrinkles, we need to go to the source – the facial muscles.

The purified protein in substances like botox blocks the nerve signals to the facial muscles, so the muscles relax somewhat. This, in turn, allows the skin that overlies the muscle to also relax, releasing the line or wrinkle so the skin lies smooth.

Frowning Wrinkles

Most of us tend to frown as we concentrate, causing a matched pair of wrinkles lying vertically in the middle of the brows. They’re often referred to as ‘number 11s’, although the medical term for these vertical lines is ‘glabellar lines’.

Over the years they become more set into the face and can make people look angry, as even when they consciously stop frowning, the lines remain. Dr. Fay uses anti-wrinkle injectables to stop the three strong muscles in the area from causing these lines.

Forehead Wrinkles

Horizontal forehead lines or furrows can become deeply etched, and contribute to an aged appearance. They are caused when you raise your eyebrows, and after years of doing so the skin gets constantly, folded so lines set in.

Dr Fay can use a conservative approach in treating forehead wrinkles, and it needs a skilled hand as a too-aggressive use of an anti-wrinkle injectable here could cause drooping eyebrows. This is just one of the reasons why it is vital to see a medical doctor with clinical experience of anti-wrinkle injectable use.

Brow Lift

One of the great effects of botox is to elevate the brows, creating the effect of a subtle brow lift. As a highly skilled injector, Dr. Fay can use botox to disable the brow depressor muscles, letting the brow elevator muscles naturally elevate the brow. This opens up the eye area, and creates a more youthful appearance.

Each Patient Different

While anti-wrinkle injectables like botox are popular, it is not a ‘cure all’ for facial lines and wrinkles. Sometimes, depending on the patient and their concerns, Dr. Fay may combine its use with dermal fillers. She will discuss the features and benefits of each product with you in detail for the very best results.
