Wrinkle reduction and dermal fillers

Wrinkle reduction and dermal fillers

Anti-wrinkle injections are made up of a purified protein. When injected into specific muscles, it causes them to temporarily relax which softens lines and wrinkles. Anti-wrinkle injections will start working within 2-3 days, with full effect normally at 2 weeks. Results last 3-6 months in most cases however, in many cases the primary 2-3 treatments may only last 3 months. Many studies have indicated that treatments become more practical and longer-lasting when given every 3-4 months. If a patient makes the choice to prevent anti-wrinkle treatments, their wrinkles will return once the strength returns to their muscles.

The Dermal Filler instantly fills out the injection area and because the product draws in moisture, the results gradually improve over the 1-2 weeks following treatment. The Dermal Filler also can stimulate collagen production.
