How It Works

The treatment works to paralyze the muscle, relaxing it and effectively smoothing away the surface wrinkles. It does this without invasive treatments. It is simply an injection that works quickly and can give you the results you want!
There are a lot of areas that are generally prone to wrinkles that this treatment can be used on.
A major area for wrinkles to begin forming is on the forehead, due to the facial expressions that we all make on a daily basis. This treatment can effectively smooth away even deeper wrinkles in this area, sometimes taking years off of your appearance. Again, it does all of this without any surgery!
Around the Eyes
Wrinkles that develop around the eyes, sometimes known as “crow’s feet”, can be stubborn and usually don’t fade using creams and serums. This treatment can successfully smooth out those wrinkles, giving you brighter, more youthful eyes!
Around the Mouth
There are a number of areas around the mouth that are prone to wrinkles including the outer corner, sometimes referred to as “marionette lines.” Other wrinkles can form above the upper lip.

Around the Nose
These lines and wrinkles can sometimes be called “bunny lines” and are basically the lines around the lower nasal area. They can also be successfully smoothed away using this treatment option. It can give you cleaner expressions that can also help you look much younger without facelifts or other painful surgeries.
The Neck & Jawline
This area is also prone to wrinkles but those lines and wrinkles are no match for this treatment. It can smooth away the lines and wrinkles along the jawline or on the neck area.
Between the Brows
Wrinkles between the brows sometimes called “frown lines” are another one of the first places that wrinkles seem to form. In this region, those wrinkles can become deep quickly. This treatment can smooth away those lines and wrinkles making you look more rested and youthful.
