Anti-Aging Injection Therapy
Anti-wrinkle injection therapy is one of the most popular services we provide—and it’s not hard to understand why!
After all, what’s the first thing people see when they look at you? Your face—wrinkles, fine lines, and all. If you want to look as youthful and energetic as possible, your face is almost always going to be your top priority.
And if you want to eliminate those wrinkles and fine lines and improve your facial features, injection therapy is an easy, convenient, and minimally invasive solution that can provide months of great-looking results with almost no downtime!
How Do Anti-Aging Injections Work?
This anti-aging therapy works by injecting a neuromodulator, botulinum toxin, into selected regions of the face using a thin needle.
The neuromodulator temporarily blocks the release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that controls small muscle movements. This causes creases to soften and wrinkles and fine lines to smooth themselves out, giving your face a more youthful appearance!
Results are typically noticeable after just 2-3 days, with full results reached after about one week. Please contact us if it’s been 7 days and you still haven’t noticed any improvement.
What Are the Risks?
There’s a harmful stereotype that anti-aging injections using neuromodulators will leave your face looking plastic and fake, or leave your face too stiff to show expression. But that just couldn’t be further from the truth!
When administered by a trained professional like Dr. Lisa Learn, botulinum toxin injections are incredibly safe, and major complications are extremely rare. Botulinum toxin injections as a category are the most widely performed cosmetic procedures in the world, and have been used successfully and safely for more than 30 years.
Minor side effects such as light bruising or temporary numbness are not uncommon, but tend to be minimal and subside very quickly.
These injections should not be taken if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, and if you are taking blood thinners you may need to pause use for a few days prior to your procedure. There are a few other medical contraindications as well, including botulism and certain conditions affecting the throat, breathing, voice, or lungs. Please check with us or your primary care physician to determine whether you are a good candidate.
What Are the Main Benefits?
Anti-aging injections can be used to deal with a number of specific problem areas you’d like to address, including:
- Preventing and smoothing established wrinkles
- Removing crow’s feet around the corners of the eyes
- Enhancing facial features
- Softening wrinkles and lines without creating an overdone blank or “mask-like” look
- Improving brow positioning
Moreover, injection therapy using the neuromodulator provides lasting results with minimal downtime, making it a highly convenient and minimally invasive alternative to facelift surgery.
Results tend to last 3-6 months on average, although the more injections you’ve had, the longer each injection tends to last. While you may require 3-4 injections your first year, most people only need about two per year afterward.
There are some secondary benefits to the therapy as well. In fact, anti-aging neuromodulator injections have been cleared to treat conditions such as chronic migraines, excessive sweating, involuntary muscle contractions, and eye twitching!
