Anti-wrinkle injections at Western Dermatology is a non-surgical procedure that is safe and effective to temporarily smooth moderate to severe lines and wrinkles. When injected into targeted facial muscles, wrinkle-causing muscles are relaxed to reduce visible lines to create a younger, softer, and natural-looking appearance.

What are Anti-Wrinkle Injections?
Botulinum toxin injection is the only treatment of its type approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). It has been safely used for the past twenty years to treat a number of disorders that effect muscle movement or spasms. It has been used to treat migraines, muscle spasms, excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis).

As a cosmetic procedure, anti-wrinkle injections has, for many years, been used to treat fine lines and wrinkles.

  • Frown lines or number 11 lines
  • Forehead lines
  • Smile lines or crow’s feet
  • Bunny lines or smile lines
  • Platysmal bands (Neck bands)
  • Jaw line slimming

If at any time, you decide to stop the Anti-wrinkle injection, the muscles will return to normal.

The appearance of the wrinkle returns to its previous state, and does not become worse.
