Anti-wrinkle injections, are made of specialized mild neurotoxins that are injected into the muscle so that they can disable contractions fueled by nerves impulses directed to that specific muscle. If the muscle is immobilized in these areas prone to wrinkling or folding, the skin relaxes and these wrinkles are offered time to smooth over. For people that struggle with lines and wrinkles around the forehead and eyes, these muscle relaxants offer the best results.
While these treatments are the original anti-aging injections, they maintain their viability and strength with proven results.
Botox Cosmetic ®
Botox lasts up to four months following treatment and is best known for glabellar injections to decrease frown lines using several injection points. However, Botox can also be used to improve crow’s feet and forehead lines, and to soften pebbling of the chin, sharpen the jaw line, improved down-turned corners of the mouth, and reduce neck bands. Depending on the exact technique your expert Botox injector uses, the injection time for Botox is around 10-15 minutes.
Some patients prefer Dysport because it can provide a more natural result because of its feathering effect. Meaning, the edges of the area treated blend more seamlessly into the surrounding non-treated areas. The injection points using Dysport are the same as with Botox, and the areas that can be treated are the same. After your Dysport injection, results can be seen quicker than with Botox but may still require two to three days to start being seen. It may take two weeks to see full effect that lasts up to four full months (120 days).
This anti-aging injection is said to be lighter than Botox since it contains fewer proteins than Dysport and Botox. We use Xeomin to treat the same areas as the other two, glabellar and forehead lines, crow’s feet and more.
