How Do Anti-Wrinkle Injections Work? 

Anti-wrinkle injections temporarily block the signals your brain sends to your facial muscles telling them to contract (which causes wrinkles). They do this by injecting small amounts of muscle relaxing agent into targeted muscles to decrease their ability to contact. This results in less facial movement so wrinkles can’t form, while also softening existing wrinkles. 

How long does it last? 

Anti-wrinkle injections generally last around 4-6 months, but varies depending on the treatment area and the dosage used. Regular treatment is recommended for optimal result and smiles.
