Our clinics can provide a variety of non-surgical injections that temporarily reduce or eliminate frown lines, forehead creases, crows feet near the eyes and thick bands in the neck. The agents blocks the nerve impulses, temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause wrinkles while giving the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance.
1 Anti-aging injections are also used to help excessive sweating of the hands and armpit areas. Studies indicate the agents may also be helpful with migraines, neck spasms, and masseter muscle hypertrophy.
How long does the procedure take?
Following the cosmetic surgery consultation, the actual procedure takes less than 15 minutes. With the use of cold compresses, the procedure is very well-tolerated. You should be able to go back to your normal routine activity right after the procedure.
How does Anti-aging work?
Anti-aging agents are injected into a targeted facial expression muscle, blocking impulses from the nerve to the muscle, thereby relaxing the muscle so it does not contract. This causes the overlying skin to become smoother, with fewer lines and wrinkles. After treatment, the skin remains smooth and unwrinkled, while the untreated facial muscles contract in a normal fashion, allowing normal facial expression and feeling to be unaffected.
How quickly will I see results?
Anti-aging agents usually start relaxing the treated area within several days, but the full effect may not be realized for two weeks.
How long will treatment last?
The effects last between 3-6 months on average but everyone is different.
