Anti-Wrinkle Injections

Anti-Wrinkle Injections


How anti-wrinkle injections work?

Anti-wrinkle injections block the chemical signal that the brain send to the muscle telling the muscle to contract.

What areas can be treated with anti-wrinkle injections?

The most common treatment areas for wrinkle reduction are crow's feet, glabella, frown lines, bunny lines and forehead. The doctor is an experienced practitioner who treats even the most complex areas. Injections can even be used to treat excessive sweating and jaw grinding,

How long do anti-wrinkle injections last?

Anti-wrinkle injections usually last up to 3 to 4 months depending on the individual. If done regularly then they last longer as the muscles progressively respond to treatment. If you stop the injections then your wrinkles and muscles will return to normal.

How long do anti-wrinkle injections take to work?

Anti-wrinkle injections start to work 2 to 3 days after the injection and reach their full effect within 7 to 14 days.
