As we age, fine lines and wrinkles begin to settle in on the forehead, around the eyes and around the mouth. Constant facial movements only make the matter worse, leaving us looking older and more tired than we really are. Luckily, there are non-surgical solutions, such as anti-wrinkle injections, available to rejuvenate an aged appearance. If you are considering anti-wrinkle injections, take a look at Dr Laniewski’s before and after photos to see if his work appeals to you.
What are anti-wrinkle injections?
Anti-wrinkle injections are the ideal non-surgical treatment for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Made up of neurotoxins, when injected into selected muscles, chemical messages from the nerve are blocked, which limits the movements of that muscle. This limits the ability for wrinkles to appear on your skin.
Anti-wrinkle injection treatments are quick and easy, taking only 15 to 20 minutes, after which you can resume your regular activities per usual. Your muscles will start to relax within two to three days and final results will appear by day 10. These results will last for around three to four months, however top-up treatments can help maintain a wrinkle-free appearance and prevent new lines from forming.
