If you’re looking for a way to refresh your face and erase the evidence of aging and stress, injections may be the solution for you. Different from facial fillers, injections relaxes tense muscles that cause wrinkles and defined expression lines. When done by a board-certified dermatologist, injections safely and effectively diminishes wrinkles and lines without leaving you “frozen-faced.”
Patients typically seek injections to eliminate the appearance of forehead lines, crow’s feet, frown lines, neck bands, lines around the corners of the mouth, and under eye wrinkles.
How does it work?
Botulinum Toxin A provides a buffer to neurotransmitters within the injected muscles, lessening the signal to contract. This releases wrinkles and folds around the injection sites.
The full effects of injections can take 2-14 days to fully develop and can last up to 6 months.
Patients may resume all normal activities immediately after treatment. Common side effects, as with all injectable products, include swelling, bruising, bleeding, and itching at the injection site. Most side effects resolve themselves naturally within 24 hours.
