You may have noticed that when you look into the mirror, your face doesn’t appear as youthful as it once did. Crow’s feet have likely started to form around your eyes, you can’t smooth out your deep brow wrinkles, and those lines around your mouth appeared out of nowhere. You have to face the facts: you’ve begun to age, and nothing you do seems to slow it down.
You may have considered a facelift, but you probably don’t want to be put out for the long recovery time. The wrinkles you have can’t be camouflaged with makeup. Should you simply resign yourself to the fact that aging skin is just another part of getting older? No, you shouldn’t, and you don’t have to.
Anti-wrinkle injections are a non-surgical solution for people looking to erase years from their face who don’t want the hassle of facelift surgery. A typical procedure only takes between 20 and 45 minutes, and side effects are minimal, if any. Common side effects are mild bruising and redness that subsides within a few hours. In comparison, facelift surgery results in moderate bruising, swelling, redness, and discomfort that can last between 10 and 14 days.
Anti-wrinkle injections are a fast-acting treatment that blocks the neurotransmitter Acetylcholine from taking effect in the nerve endings of muscles. This paralyzes the muscles and prevents them from contracting, which causes them to relax and allows for the appearance of wrinkles to diminish. Noticeable results become visible only a few hours after treatment.
Areas of Correction
Anti-wrinkle injections can be used to specifically target the aging of various facial areas. Ideal areas of correction include:
- Crow’s feet
- Frown lines
- Brow lines
- Nasal lines
There is nothing keeping you from looking as good as you feel. Non-surgical anti-wrinkle injectables are the quick and painless way to restore a smooth, youthful face. For patients with extensive facial sagging, surgical facelifts are available to provide you with the extensive correction you desire.
