Antiwrinkle Injections

Antiwrinkle injections are popular for those looking for minimally invasive procedures with little to no downtime, and with fast and visible results. Injections are extremely effective at easing the over-contracted muscles that cause surface skin to look old or stressed. Placed strategically by an experienced dermatology nurse, injections can also gently lift the lower third of the face, the usual target of the surgical facelift.

Injectable treatments typically consists of several small injections. It works by temporarily weakening the treated muscles so that the skin relaxes and facial wrinkles and lines become less noticeable. Results can be seen in 4-10 days and can last 3 to 4 months, sometimes longer.
