Wrinkle Reduction is done via a prescription Neurotoxin medicine that is injected into muscles to reduce and help smooth out forehead lines, frown lines, crow’s feet and wrinkles on the face.
Laboratory synthesised neurotoxins are used in wrinkle reduction treatment. Neurotoxins work by blocking the release of a chemical neurotransmitter called Acetylcholine from nerve endings.
The muscles into which wrinkle reduction treatment are injected become "relaxed", thereby reducing the appearance of wrinkles. This treatment works for Dynamic wrinkles which appear only when there is muscle action. It will not work with Static wrinkles, which are lines that are already etched into the skin, even without any muscle action. Treatment options for static wrinkles include Dermal Fillers together with neurotoxins.
Unlike 'conventional' therapy that goes slightly deeper, the Micro-B Lift involves multiple tiny superficial injections that target the fine muscles controlling pore size at the jawline. The aim of this technique is to deliver smaller pores and hence the skin surface area is stretched out over the face, providing in a 'lift' effect. The injections over the jaw area also lower the effect of the downward pull of the platysmus muscle, giving the cheek and jowls a 'lift'.
