Get rid of deep forehead wrinkles in Birmingham
There are 2 types of wrinkles that appear on our foreheads.
- Horizontal lines you get when you’re surprised, stressed or simply looking up. They run across your forehead, tend to deepen with age and can even be visible when your face is relaxed.
- Vertical lines you get when you are under pressure, or frowning. They resemble number 11 and appear between your eyebrows. They could make you look tired or grumpy.
The muscles responsible for these movements can be temporarily relaxed with a Botulinum toxin injection. This in turn reduces and can even eliminate these wrinkles.
Soften wrinkles around your eyes ( Crow’s Feet )
These lines appear at the corner of your eyes either while smiling, or laughing. They expand over time due to sun exposure, smoking and the aging process. They are sometimes referred to as Crow’s Feet (they resemble a bird’s toes).
At Skin IQ we can relax the muscle around your eye (Obicularis Oculi) with precise injections and tighten the skin of your eyelid, lifting your eyebrows slightly.
Soften wrinkles on your nose ( Bunny Lines )
These lines are visible on the ridge of your nose and they become more apparent as you age, due to constant facial expressions (smiling, frowning). We might find it cute when a rabbit twitches and wrinkles it’s nose, but we’re probably less keen to see the deep wrinkles on our noses.
Botulinum toxin can help relax the Nasalis muscle and effectively soften these lines for a more youthful look.
Erase the unflattering lip lines ( Smoker’s Lines)
They normally form on top of your lips and even around them. Lip lines are not as deep as forehead wrinkles, but over time a lot of them can form in one area and are very hard to conceal.
The most obvious cause is smoking, due to the toxins that accelerate the breakdown of elastin and collagen, but also repeated actions such tightening your lips around the cigarette/vape.
Never smoked, but still have smoker’s lines? Well, that could be due to a similar (repeated) movement of your lips. Think drinking from a straw, taking duck-face selfies many times a day, or perhaps just a habit of sucking your lips. Oh, and let’s not forget UV rays, which are responsible for most of our skin aging process.
If you wish to soften the lip lines, we can help.
