Smooth Your Frown Lines
How does the Lutétia Clinic smooth out wrinkles and frown lines? By reversing the process, those repetitive muscles contractions, that created the lines in the first place. Botulinum Toxin is the natural protein in Lutétia’s anti-wrinkle injections that relaxes the contracted muscles that cause fine lines and wrinkles on the outer corner of the eyes (crow’s feet), nose and chin as well as smile lines, laugh lines and horizontal lines on the forehead and neck. This protein can also block the activation of the sweat glands that cause excessive sweating in the hands, feet, or underarms. (It’s also used to treat migraines.)
Because this technique is as much an art as it is a science, the Lutétia Clinic doctors use cutting edge technology and an adept hand to put just the right amount in the right places to avoid the typical “frozen look” and achieve natural-looking results.
Can Anti-Wrinkle Injections/Botox prevent wrinkles?
Botox can also be used to prevent the wrinkles caused by repeated muscle contractions, they can be prevented by Botox injections. In a person’s twenties, their skin is thick enough and resilient enough to not crease as the facial muscles responsible for smiling, squinting or frowning contract. Starting at age 30 the skin begins to thin and becomes more susceptible to creasing do to these repeated expressions. It’s then that a patient can use anti-wrinkle injections to relax the muscles and prevent wrinkles from forming or deepening.
