NineMSN Health’s recent anti-ageing article hones in on the issue of ‘how soon is too soon to starting anti wrinkle injections’, and features expert comment by Dr Geoff Lyons, president of the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons, and VCI cosmetic physician Dr. Sara Mullen.
Recently named the ‘Filler Queen’ by Sunday Style magazine, Dr. Sara’s anti-ageing plans in clinic combine both anti-wrinkle and dermal filler treatment, carefully placed and measured to achieve natural looking results for her patients whose core desire is to look ‘like themselves, just younger’.
In this particular article, Dr. Sara speaks of the benefits using anti-wrinkle injections to address dynamic wrinkles, such as frown lines, as soon as they start to appear. Frown lines are often the first to appear and, if left long enough, they can develop into static wrinkles which are wrinkles visible on the face even when no expression is being made.
When it comes to anti-wrinkle treatment, it is indeed true that ‘sooner, rather than later’ is best!
