With a quick procedure and natural looking results, anti-wrinkle injections are a safe, non-surgical way of reducing facial lines and wrinkles to restore a smoother, fresher appearance.
Anti-wrinkle injections are used to block the nerve signals that cause muscles to contract. This effect relaxes and smooths the look of lines and wrinkles caused by repetitive movements on the face – most commonly, between the brows, crows-feet around the eyes, and horizontal forehead creases.

Multiple factors affect the longevity of the results including how much was injected and where it was put in the face. As a general guideline, anti-wrinkle injections last around three to six months. If you like the results, be prepared to make this part of your beauty routine that will require some upkeep.
