Anti-Wrinkle

Also known as injectable inhibitors, these treatments are used to smooth away wrinkles and restore a more youthful appearance. Anti-wrinkle treatments target the muscles that create the facial expressions leading to the formation of wrinkles. By relaxing those muscles, lines and facial creases are effectively diminished as well. Injectable treatments are a relatively quick, easy way to produce a younger, refreshed appearance that will last for many months after the procedure.

Dr Thomas also routinely uses these muscle relaxing injections for migraines.

Candidates for Anti-Wrinkle Injectables

Injectable inhibitors tend to work best on “dynamic” wrinkles, or wrinkles that form when certain facial expressions are made. Those creases might include:

  • Horizontal lines across the forehead
  • Vertical lines between the eyebrows (frown lines)
  • Fine lines in the outer corners of the eyes (crow’s feet)
  • Horizontal bands that appear around the neck

What to Expect after Treatment
After treatment, patients may experience some mild swelling around the injection sites. This side effect will likely subside within a few hours after the procedure. There is no downtime after the procedure; most patients return to work and other activities right away. Anti-wrinkle injections are a temporary treatment that must be repeated every 3-6 months to maintain positive results.

Anti-wrinkle injections are one of the most popular cosmetic treatments performed today, due to their ease of use and their effective results.
