Non-Surgical Cosmetic Procedures- wrinkle injectionsAs humans, we show our emotions on our faces. When we are happy, we smile. When we are perplexed or upset, we frown. And until recently, those emotions made an indelible and unwanted imprint on our facial skin that we call wrinkles.
You can now enjoy a very effective treatment for the lessening the facial lines we all develop over time. Facial wrinkle treatments can dramatically reduce the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet, laugh lines and forehead wrinkles.
Wrinkle injections can relax facial muscles resulting in noticeably diminished lines , often within days of the first treatment.
This simple, non-surgical, inexpensive procedure takes only about ten minutes. In fact, many patients conveniently fit their treatments in during a lunch hour since the procedure is practically painless and there is no down time needed for recovery. The effects of a single treatment can last up to four months. Repeat treatments may result in effects that last up to six months at a time.
Minor side effects of treatment include a slight, temporary drooping of the eyelid, and some patients may experience tenderness, swelling, redness or bruising in conjunction with the injection. Use of an ice pack should help ease any brief discomfort.
As with most facial rejuvenation treatments, the best results are being enjoyed when treatments are begun before deep furrows have had time to form.
A study conducted by an American Board-Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon - Otolaryngologist Head and Neck Surgeons found that Neuromodulaters can actually prevent the signs of aging when treatments are begun earlier in life. The study followed twin sisters over thirteen years beginning at age 25 when one of them began receiving treatments. It was clear at the end of the study, that the twin who had received regular injections did not have frown lines and her crow’s feet were less visible than the untreated twin’s.

The 5 Questions I Get Asked Most Frequently About Facial Cosmetic wrinkle Injections and How I RespondAt Dr Solomon Facial Cosmetic Surgery Centre Thornhill Ontario Canada
Facial wrinkle injections are an inexpensive and minimally invasive treatment that can help almost anyone look years younger, so it's no wonder its popularity is on the rise.
Although there are many reasons patients consider treatments, there is one compelling motivator.
The treatments are quick, virtually painless and often produce dramatic results.
Here are the top 5 questions I get asked most often by people considering treatments:
1. How Long Does It Take to Start Working?
It takes approximately 5 days for the medicine to cause the treated muscles to relax. The creases should then begin to smooth out in 1 to 2 weeks. If you have deep creases, it may take a bit longer for the skin to "flatten" out.
2. Are treatments painful?
Discomfort is usually minimal and brief.
3. How long does it last?
The effect usually lasts 3 to 5 months when used to correct wrinkles of the face. First time patients may see the effects subside closer to 3 -4 months while repeat users may enjoy the effects for up to 6 months.
4. Will I experience any side effects?
While side effects are uncommon, they can be treated when they do occur. The most common side effect following injection is a temporary change in position of the eyebrow. Temporary eyelid droop can also occur and can be corrected with eye drops until the effect subsides. In some cases, localized pain, infection, inflammation, tenderness, swelling, redness, and/or bleeding/bruising may be associated with the injection.
5. Will my facial expressions continue to look natural?
Although the results are visible, cosmetic injection treatment will not radically change your facial appearance or make you look as if you "had something done."
Although the results are visible due to the muscle activity that causes frown lines between the brows being reduced, you can still frown or look surprised without the wrinkles and creases between your brows.
