As you age, your faces begins to show the effects of gravity, smoking, sun exposure and years of facial muscle movement, such as smiling, frowning, chewing and squinting. The underlying tissues that keep our skin looking youthful and plumped up begin to break down, often leaving laugh lines, smile lines, crow’s feet or facial creases over the areas where this muscle movement occurs.
Anti-wrinkle injections relax muscles and can fill in these lines and creases, temporarily restoring a smoother, more youthful-looking appearance. When injected beneath the skin these products smooth the skin and plump up sunken areas of the face. Anti-aging treatments can also add fullness to the lips and cheeks. These products may be used alone or in conjunction with a resurfacing procedure, such as a laser treatment, or a recontouring procedure.
