    Wrinkle reduction and prevention

    It is not about removing all the tiny lines. It's about preventing those deeper lines that might bother you. Over time, your skin's natural ability to protect itself decreases. Muscle contractions and movements leave their mark. Anti-wrinkle injections are a fast, affordable and effective wrinkle treatment that helps reduce and prevent these.

    What is a wrinkle and how does it form?

    Wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process. As with age, our skin becomes thinner, drier and loses elastin. The ability of our skin to protect itself reduces as we get older so that wrinkles, folds and lines appear on our skin.

    Continuous muscle contractions also contribute to the formation of facial wrinkles by causing expression wrinkles or "dynamic wrinkles" that only appear when the muscle is involved. However, over time, if left untreated, these wrinkles can become age wrinkles or "static wrinkles" which then permanently etch themselves in the skin.

    Wrinkle Treatment Areas
    • + Brow Lift orEyebrow lift

      Your eyebrows can sometimes look uneven or asymmetrical. Muscle-relaxing anti-wrinkle injections can increase facial symmetry and, in some cases, provide an eyebrow lift.

    • + Forehead wrinkles

      Frontal wrinkles are horizontal lines that form when you use your eyebrows repeatedly. Over time, these dynamic wrinkles form permanent lines.

    • + Wrinkles of the lion or frown of the eyebrows wrinkles

      These frown lines are the vertical lines between your eyes and are also called "glabellous lines". Repeated muscle movements and contractions result in permanent static wrinkles

    • + Crow's feet or around the eyes

      Also called "smile lines" or "lines of characters". These lines appear at the outer corners of the eyes.

    • + Rabbit wrinkles

      Also known as nasal line, they can appear during constant narrowing of the muscle of the nose. They appear as horizontal wrinkles that form on the crest of the nose.

    • + Vertical lip lines

      Vertical lines appear on the upper and lower lips. They can become definite lines that become apparent with any movement of the mouth.

    • Remodeling of the jaw

      Facial remodeling is a treatment used on the lower muscle of the face, called the "masseter", or jaw muscle. The masseter muscle is used for chewing and, in case of hyperactivity, can cause grinding of the teeth. This muscle can make the jaw appear square, and while it may appeal to the male face, many women are looking for a softer, more feminine look. By using anti-wrinkle treatments, we can reduce the mass of this muscle, reducing the appearance of a square jaw, giving the face a more oval appearance. This treatment can also reduce the severity of teeth grinding.

    • + Chin

      As we get older, our chin muscle pulls upward, forming a line between the lower lip and the chin in an arch. This muscle can be softened by anti-wrinkle injections that lessen the pressure on the chin and soften the line.
