Wrinkle Reduction Treatments Smooth out expression lines around the eyes and forehead. The injections are a safe and effective method of temporarily reducing moderate to severe facial lines and wrinkles. They are unrivaled for the treatment of frown lines, forehead lines and crow's feet and can also be used to reduce excessive sweating.
Eliminate facial lines and wrinklingAnti-wrinkle injections use a purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium which reduces the activity of the muscles that cause facial lines and wrinkles. By blocking muscle action, the highly purified preparation minimizes the wrinkles associated with over-active muscles. They do not produce numbness or disturbance of sensation and will not radically change your facial appearance. You can still frown or look surprised, you'll just do it without the wrinkles and creases between your brows.
Treatment is quick and easy, involving a series of tiny injections in the area where lines occur. This usually takes less than 10 minutes and involves only minor discomfort. The full effects of treatment take a few days to reach a maximum and in most cases last from 3-6 months. The treatment is very safe, with no systemic side-effects of note. Temporary side effects may include some tenderness and slight bruising at the site of injection.
Recommended treatment scheduleThe initial effects generally last from 3-6 months. Many patients find that after a few treatments the effects last longer, meaning follow-up treatments may be required less frequently.
