Preventing ageing with toxins?

by Dental Design, on 2nd April 2014 | 0 comments

Many patients ask me about the preventative use of anti wrinkle injections.

The best way to reduce the ageing process will always be to reduce environmental risk factors , the two greatest being sun damage and smoking.

At The Skin Clinic we recommended that you wear a daily five star UVA and UVB sun protection.Therefore not only reducing the risk of skin cancers but creased skin caused by loss of elasticity and collagen.

Patients are often surprised that they can suffer sun damage whilst driving ,through their car windows too !

We offer a range of skin care and sunscreens and can advise you accordingly.

As well as loss of elasticity and sallow skin caused by smoking, excess alcohol,and stress contribute to ageing.Unfortunately ‘good’ skin is inherited too!

The prevention I can carry out using wrinkle relaxing toxin works best on patients who are aware of the other factors too.

I use a small amount of toxin around the eyes, brow, frown ,mouth, cheeks and jaw to stop deep static lines forming.

In between the brows the muscles that allow us to frown become bulky and the fibres shorten over time (this can look heavy and masculine). After I reduce movement here the muscle shrinks in size, a bit like having your arm in a cast for a while. This gives the area a lovely smooth appearance making the face look more relaxed.

Light preventative treatment before static deep wrinkles form on the face  in my opinion definitely reduces the appearance of ageing, my patients would also definitely agree!
