Advanced Botulinum Toxin (Botox)
Anti Wrinkle injections relax the muscles in your face to smooth out lines and wrinkles, such as crow's feet and frown lines. Your face will be cleaned and botulinum toxin will be injected into muscles in your face using a very fine needle. Anti Wrinkle injections prevent the release of acetylcholine, which stops the muscle cells from contracting. In this way, the toxin helps the muscles to become less stiff.
You'll need injections in different places, depending on the area being treated. You'll be asked to move the muscles in your face to help find the best place for the injections.

Do I need to be over 40? What is the appropriate age?
It's not your age that determines when Anti Wrinkle injections is right for you, it's the severity of your lines. In fact, 64% of plastic surgeons report seeing a rise in cosmetic surgery or injectable treatments for patients in their early 30’s.
The truth is, everyone's lines form differently. The timing can be influenced by a combination of factors, from cellular changes that may occur over time, to reduction of collagen, to genetic factors, or damage caused by free radicals from the sun and the environment. Whenever your lines start to bother you, go speak with your doctor. They can help you determine if treatment is right for you.
How long is the treatment? Will it hurt?
The actual injection process takes a quick 10 minutes. I will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatment areas for you. Then, some patients report that being injected with Anti Wrinkle feels like a pinch. I may use ice to numb the treatment area. Or, if you are concerned about discomfort, I may apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment.
Treatment requires minimal downtime. So you can return to your daily routine immediately after you leave your specialist’s office.
You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours, with results lasting up to four months for moderate to severe frown lines. Remember that results vary from patient to patient though, so your physician will plan your next appointment based on your results and aesthetic goals.

Any side effects?
Side effects will not effect everyone... Everyone is different and no results will ever be the same across multiple people as everyones skin is different.
Three percent of patients experienced eyelid drooping in the frown lines studies, one percent of patients experienced eyelid swelling in the crow's feet studies, and one percent of patients experienced brow drooping in the forehead lines studies. Other possible side effects include: dry mouth; discomfort or pain at the injection site; tiredness; headache; neck pain; eye problems: double vision, blurred vision, decreased eyesight and dry eyes; and allergic reactions.
