As skin ages over time, skin naturally thins and loses volume as collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastin gradually diminish. This process leads to wrinkling, a prominent feature of aging. Injections of a medication in to the muscles that create the wrinkles can assist in decreasing the formation of wrinkles and reverse the signs of aging. This will provide softening of fine lines and wrinkles for a natural, refreshed, and youthful appearance.
What do wrinkle injections consist of?
This medication consists of a purified protein derived from Clostridium botulinum bacterium. It is FDA approved to temporarily reduce muscle contractions and smooths wrinkles in many areas of the face for cosmetic enhancements. It can also be used medically to alleviate migraines, bruxism, and excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis).
How is the medication injected?
One of our medical practitioners will take appropriate quantities of the medication and inject the appropriate number of units to the targeted muscle. A fine needle is used to inject, which is safe, effective, and can be given within a short treatment time. Receiving this treatment has minimal to no pain (during and after the treatment).
How long will it take to see results?
It takes as early as 3 days from your treatment date up to a maximum of 2 weeks to start seeing results.
How long will results last?
The effects from neuromodulator treatment usually lasts anywhere from 3-4 months. Particularly related to bruxism, with the appropriate dosing, the slimming effect of the jawline can last up to 6 months.
