Wrinkle Reduction

Various Wrinkle reduction medicines can be used to administer treatments to prevent or smooth out facial wrinkles.

Wrinkle reduction agents are medicines that are meant to relax your muscle motion by 50% or more. By relaxing these muscles, the medicine helps to improve frown lines, crow's feet wrinkles, and horizontal forehead wrinkles, by making these lines less deep and less noticeable. You will look refreshed and relaxed, and you will still have your natural facial expressions, if applied properly in the right doses.

You have indeed earned your experiences in life. Some lines on your face can help to express your character and uniqueness. Other wrinkles, however, like the vertical lines between your eyebrows (frown lines), can make you look angry or stressed, when you really are happy and relaxed. Other lines, like the crows feet wrinkles, can make you look tired, even though you are well rested. You know that looking great also makes you feel great. You may have heard about wrinkle reduction medicines. Wrinkle reduction treatments are a simple, non-surgical, effective way to help smooth out some wrinkles to help you to look more refreshed and relaxed in a natural way. Rest assured that after your wrinkle reduction treatment, you will still be able to have natural expressions, and you will be able to smile, and have normal facial movements without causing the wrinkles and facial lines that are associated with these expressions.

Wrinkle Reduction Medicines are Reliable.

Wrinkle Reduction medicines have been used for the treatment of eye disorders associated with muscle hyperactivity such as crossed eyes and twitching of the eyelids. Since then, they have also been used to help a variety of conditions involving hyperactive muscles, including cerebral palsy in children. They are very effective to help these patients to resume a normal life and everyday activity, and when administered properly by a trained doctor, there are minimal side effects, all of which are temporary and reversible.

Wrinkle reduction medicine is a reliable treatment. You should not have wrinkle reduction injection treatments if you are pregnant, a nursing mother, or if you have muscle diseases such as myasthenia gravis.

Relaxing the Wrinkle-Causing Muscles.

Repeated muscular contractions such as frowning and squinting cause wrinkles in your skin known as dynamic wrinkles. Over time, these dynamic wrinkles become permanent, and you develop deep wrinkles called static wrinkles. Wrinkle Reduction Medicines work by relaxing the muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles, giving the face a more relaxed and refreshed appearance and in doing so, prevents the permanent static wrinkles from developing.

The procedure is so simple and quick and you will start to notice an improvement within days, but it can take up to 2 weeks to see the final result. The result usually can last for 3.5 to 4 months, and you will need to maintain your result approximately 3 to 4 times a year.

Wrinkle Treatments

Prescription Injections come as a powder and are mixed with liquid to make a liquid solution. This solution is then administered with a very small needle. Doses vary depending on the medical indication for its use. Doses are usually described as units.

Usually a doctor will administer your treatments, although some other clinics allow a nurse injector to administer your treatment. The doctor who injects the treatment will determine the appropriate dose for you.

Cost varies depending on the clinic, doctor or pharmacy.

For more information and education about the benefits, risks, side effects of injectable wrinkle treatments, please contact your doctor's office.

I’ve always been very self-conscious of my forehead wrinkles and I wanted to get rid of them. Dr Zakhary was very open and friendly as first impressions go and recommended her wrinkle reduction treatment and medication such as muscle relaxing agents which stop the skin from folding. It’s been 2 weeks now and the wrinkles are almost entirely gone, I’ll be coming back for more!

Kelly Haworth
I started getting a lot of wrinkles on my face and slowly my confidence was getting low. A very dear friend of mine suggested a facelift from Dr. Kristina Zakhary. I didn’t have any idea how I will look after the facelift still; I went to the clinic for consultation. Dr. Kristina Zakhary explained nicely about the facelift. I got it done and I have regained my confidence as there are barely any wrinkles left on my face. Thank you, Dr. Kristina Zakhary!

I honestly could not be any happier with the results Dr. Zakhary has given me. There is so much fear and uncertainty that comes with making this decision. From the moment I met her it's like all my fears were calmed and I was given this confidence that I was certain I had met the right person. She made the whole process so comfortabe and completely eased my nerves. The results are better than I could have ever imagined! Dr. Zakhary is an absolute expert in her field, and I am beyond happy with my decision.
