Millions of people around the world are undergoing anti-wrinkle injections and getting amazing results. In fact, they’ve been the most performed and talked-about cosmetic procedure for the last several years. These targeted injections temporarily paralyze small facial muscles and smooth furrows in the skin’s surface. The muscles used in smiling, laughing, and frowning are the main culprits; causing folds in the skin that deepen year after year. After receiving anti-wrinkle injections, the creases and furrows soften and you immediately look younger.
If you’re in your 20s or early 30s, you may not have many wrinkles yet. If that’s the case, you can consider using anti-wrinkle injections to prevent the wrinkles from developing in the first place. Even though you’re young and wrinkle-free today, every time you smile, laugh at a funny joke or frown, your skin is creasing. Over time, those creases stop flattening out and you start looking old. Relaxing the muscles in your face before those creases become permanent can prevent wrinkles later in life
What to Expect
It’s normal to be nervous if this is your first time getting anti-wrinkle injections. If you’re wondering whether it’s going to hurt, we promise the needles used are tiny. You might feel a small prick, or you could feel nothing at all. Often a numbing cream or an ice pack is used to make the entire treatment pain-free and comfortable.
Every time you smile, laugh at a funny joke or frown, your skin is creasing.
How Does It Work?
The physician injects the product right into the small facial muscles that are causing the wrinkles. The chemical stops the nerve impulses from reaching the muscle and telling it to contract. If the muscle doesn’t tighten, the skin will stay flat and smooth and you’ll stay wrinkle-free
You can even get your anti-wrinkle injections on your lunch hour.
- Stay in a vertical, upright position for a minimum of four (4) hours
- Refrain from any facial massage for a minimum of two (2) weeks
- Results in as little as twenty (20) minutes
Your treatment session itself typically takes only 30 minutes to complete and you’ll immediately notice subtle changes. Over the next several days you’ll see increasing reduction in the wrinkles targeted. And within 10 to 14 days you’ll be happy with your appearance as the full effects take over.
This is one of the first questions our clients often ask. The great news is your face will stay smooth and more relaxed for at least three to four months before you might need the
treatment redone. The injections’ effect slowly wears off and your muscles will start to contract along the same old lines and grooves. This will cause the wrinkles and lines to reappear as before. If your goal is to maintain your younger, relaxed appearance, you need to repeat your anti-wrinkle treatments every few months.
