As we age, our faces are shaped in part by the movement of our facial muscles, resulting in the formation of permanent lines on the forehead, between the eyebrows, along the sides of the eyes, around the smile. However, facial expressions with repetitive movements such as frowning or eye crinkling while smiling, can cause these lines to form at any stage of life. Shereen Timani, M.D., the board-certified dermatologist at Johns Creek Dermatology,employs wrinkle inhibitor injectables for her patients desiring a rejuvenated appearance.
These injectables, including Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin, are frequently used to reduce the look of lines in these areas by inhibiting muscle contraction, the underlying cause of the lines. If reduction in frown lines or other expression lines is an aesthetic goal, Dr, Timani may recommend a non-surgical wrinkle inhibitor injectable because it relaxes the muscles underlying expression lines, while preserving your natural facial expressions..
Wrinkle Inhibitor Injectables: About the Procedure
The treatment procedure generally takes about 15-20 minutes. Specific muscle groups are targeted based on characteristics of the lines, location of the problem area, strength of the underlying muscles, and your desired outcome. Results may be managed to create a completely smooth aesthetic, or varied levels of mobility may be retained. The injections will slowly reduce muscle activity and prevent muscle contractions, thus softening the expression lines. Treatment is temporary and will last approximately 3 months.
