OTHER OPTIONS TO SMOOTH YOUR SKIN
TARGETED AND NON-PERMANENTAnti-wrinkle injections are simple, quick, non-surgical procedures that reduce lines and wrinkles in the upper face. The injections can treat crow's feet, forehead lines and the vertical frown ('glabellar') lines between the eyebrows (note that not all brands are indicated in all three areas). Anti-wrinkle injections are different from fillers both in the way they work and in their composition. Most dermal fillers are gels that mimic a naturally occurring sugar compound in our skin that attracts moisture and creates volume. Anti-wrinkle injections, on the other hand, contain a protein that causes the injected facial muscle to relax, smoothing out lines and wrinkles in the area. Dermal fillers will show instant results, while anti-wrinkle injections deliver rapid, noticeable improvements within one to two days. While both products are temporary, dermal fillers can last up to 24 months, while anti-wrinkle injections last between three and four months. Anti-wrinkle injections relax only the muscles beneath the lines where product has been injected and the muscles responsible for other aspects of your facial expression stay active. If you have no further treatments, the muscles return to normal and lines gradually go back to how they looked before treatment.
