Wrinkle Reduction Without Downtime Or Surgery

Reduce wrinkles and look years younger. There are over 50 muscles in the face and we use them to create different facial expressions. Over time wrinkles form as collagen breaks down in these areas of facial expression. One way to reduce wrinkles and stop this collagen break-down is to inject Botox.

Wrinkle reduction can make your face look years younger. The use of Botox will diminish wrinkles in the brow, forehead and around the eyes (crow's feet). It can also be safely used in other areas of the face depending on a patient's unique facial movements and in the neck to reduce banding that comes with getting older.

Botox is injected into the muscles identified as responsible for the wrinkles in question and is used in very small quantities. It works by blocking the receptors on the muscle responsible for initiating movement when signals are sent from the brain. Once injected, the muscles will relax resulting in the improved look of your wrinkles. A temporary block of that muscles ability to function occurs keeping lines from forming and allowing new collagen to build, further improving the overall appearance of that area.

Results from generally take 5 to fourteen days to be seen. You will see your skin smoothing and wrinkles reducing and improvements can occur for up to a month. Over time your body creates new receptors on the muscle allowing return of movement. Therefore, to maintain wrinkle reduction, you will need to repeat the procedure every three to six months.
