Have you started to notice fine lines and wrinkles? Each year, with every scowl or smile, the marks deepen. Those unwanted lines can begin showing up as early as your mid-20s. While a few lines give your face personality, if you’re not careful, it can start looking like a road map. If you want to smooth out your face and eliminate wrinkles before they go too far, wrinkle-relaxing cosmetic injections could be for you.
What Do Anti-Wrinkle Injections Do?
Millions of people around the world are undergoing anti-wrinkle injections and getting amazing results. In fact, they’ve been the most performed and talked-about cosmetic procedure for the last several years. These targeted injections temporarily paralyze small facial muscles and smooth furrows in the skin’s surface. The muscles used in smiling, laughing, and frowning are the main culprits; causing folds in the skin that deepen year after year. After receiving anti-wrinkle injections, the creases and furrows soften and you immediately look younger.
Every time you smile, laugh at a funny joke or frown, your skin is creasing.
Are Dermal Fillers For Mature Skin Only?
Dermal Fillers for Prevention
If you’re in your 20s or early 30s, you may not have many wrinkles yet. If that’s the case, you can consider using anti-wrinkle injections to prevent the wrinkles from developing in the first place. Even though you’re young and wrinkle-free today, every time you smile, laugh at a funny joke or frown, your skin is creasing. Over time, those creases stop flattening out and you start looking old. Relaxing the muscles in your face before those creases become permanent can prevent wrinkles later in life.
What to Expect Before Your Anti-Wrinkle Injection
It’s normal to be nervous if this is your first time getting anti-wrinkle injections. If you’re wondering whether it’s going to hurt, we promise the needles used are tiny. You might feel a small prick, or you could feel nothing at all. Often a numbing cream or an ice pack is used to make the entire treatment pain-free and comfortable.
How Do Injectables Work?
The Science Behind Injectibles and Dermal Fillers
The physician injects the product right into the small facial muscles that are causing the wrinkles. The chemical stops the nerve impulses from reaching the muscle and telling it to contract. If the muscle doesn’t tighten, the skin will stay flat and smooth and you’ll stay wrinkle-free.

Good News! You can stop worrying about having to hide after your treatment. There is typically no bruising or visible signs you’ve had anything done. On rare occasions, there may be slight swelling.

How Long do the Anti-Wrinkle Treatments Take?
Your treatment session itself typically takes only 30 minutes to complete and you’ll immediately notice subtle changes. Over the next several days you’ll see an increasing reduction in the wrinkles targeted. And within 10 to 14 days you’ll be happy with your appearance as the full effects take over.
How Long Does the Wrinkle Relaxing Effect Last?
This is one of the first questions our clients often ask. The great news is your face will stay smooth and more relaxed for at least three to four months before you might need the treatment redone. The injections’ effect slowly wears off and your muscles will start to contract along the same old lines and grooves. This will cause the wrinkles and lines to reappear as before. If your goal is to maintain your younger, relaxed appearance, you need to repeat your anti-wrinkle treatments every few months.
What’s The Bottom Line?
Prices vary based on the unit and how many areas you want to be treated. Forehead, crow’s feet or brow scowl? Or your jowls and the lines around your mouth? Everyone’s different and has different needs. You might even want a whole face treatment that smooths all existing and potential future wrinkles. Regardless, our skilled and certified cosmetic surgeons, who by the way are the ONLY people doing your treatments, can discuss your desired outcome with you and give you an accurate quote before your first treatment.
