There are a number of signs you start to notice as you age – loss of volume, dull and discoloured tone, sagging skin – but usually the first and most unwelcome change are the wrinkles that form, particularly around the eyes and between the brows. These wrinkles are called dynamic wrinkles because they are formed by the constant contraction and relaxation of the muscles that lie just underneath the skin. Many patients complain to Mr Tariq Ahmad that these lines make them look tired, old and even angry, which is not a true reflection of how they feel inside. Anti-wrinkle injections work by temporarily paralysing the nerves that tell those muscles to move. The skin overlying the muscles is thereby smoothed and those tell-tale lines are reduced. Anti-wrinkle injections contains a prescription-only drug so can only be administered by appropriate medical practitioners. Experience also counts to ensure that you have a pleasing result and Mr Ahmad has many years’ experience in offering aesthetic treatments.
