Smoothing out mimic wrinkles with injections

Injections to treat expression wrinkles have in the past decade become a widespread and popular trend with both women and men who are interested in improving their look by softening and eliminating expression wrinkles.

The treatment material is based on a natural toxin, and was approved for use to treat wrinkles by the FDA to in

How does the smoothing out expression wrinkles injection treatment work?

The injected material is used for flattening and filling wrinkles in the upper part of the face (the forehead and the eye areas (a location that tends to develop most expression wrinkles). Flattening the wrinkles is achieved by injecting the material between the muscle and the nerve, which forces muscle relaxation – it weakens the expression muscles causing the wrinkles.

There are many advantages to injections when it comes to flattening and blurring multiple expression wrinkles, first and foremost – immediate return to your routine. There is no recovery time and you can resume your routine immediately (however, it is still recommended to avoid physical activity for three days after the injection treatments).

In addition, the patients who choose to have these treatments, mostly achieve satisfactory and fast results immediately after the first session, which means smoothing out the wrinkles and even making them disappear completely, with very few adverse effects.

There is an option of combining the injection of toxin used for relaxing the expression muscles with various viscos filling materials for providing additional volume and blur out fine lines.

This treatment does not require any special preparation, and the results achieved last for several months. After you receive a number of injections, the period of time between injections lengthens and the results last for longer.

As far as the disadvantages of the treatment, some patients may testify to mild adverse effects such as light swelling in the treated area, redness or a mild hematoma. However, these are rare occurrences, and for the most part do not constitute a nuisance or cause pain, and they heal quickly.
