Wrinkle relaxing treatments using filler a range of products are one of the most popular and effective treatments for the reduction of facial lines as they can be performed quickly, are non-invasive, and most importantly, safe. The wrinkle reduction treatment consists of a series of fine injections into the targeted areas to smooth out facial lines and give the appearance of a more youthful and rejuvenated look.
Wrinkle fillers contain a chemical which is a purified protein that temporarily disrupts the communication pathway between nerve endings and muscle fibres, it stops muscle contraction and reduces the appearance of wrinkles. The effect is reversible and a wrinkle relaxing injection can last up to 4 months.
In the hands of an advanced injector, it can be used to treat far more than the 3 conventional facial areas mentioned above. At Harley Street Medical Doctors, we offer an advanced wrinkle treatment for:
