Look visibly younger by treating frown lines, smile lines and forehead lines with Anti-Wrinkle Injections. This safe and effective treatment relaxes facial muscles that cause fine lines and wrinkles with no downtime.
Anti-Wrinkle Injections (also known as neuromodulators or neurotoxins) is a popular procedure that can give your face a more youthful and refreshed appearance. If you’re bothered by fine lines and wrinkles in areas such as the frown, forehead and crow’s feet, this treatment can address these concerns with a quick visit to your injector. It can also be used for excessive sweating and to narrow a square or wide jawline.
Neuromodulators work by blocking the impulses between nerve cells so the muscles are not able to contract and make facial expressions. When injected directly into the muscles, the treated areas start to look much smoother, lifted and younger. The medication can also prevent expression lines from forming in the first place. It takes approximately 7-14 days to see the final results which typically last between 3-6 months.
