  • Dynamic wrinkles (cosmetic use)
  • Chronic migraines

It works!

Of course, the main reason anti-wrinkle injections are so popular is that it works. Dynamic wrinkles are caused by repetitive facial movements, resulting in permanent creases. Anti wrinkle injections work by gently relaxing the facial muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles. Once the injections have had time to work, the creases relax and smooth out the face. Patients are usually thrilled with the results, which last for about 3-4 months. Many people love it so much, they always have their next appointment scheduled. Others use it for special occasions, like birthdays or weddings. Frown lines and crows’ feet wrinkles affect everyone. For that reason, anti-wrinkle injections are for everyone!
