Wrinkle reduction

Injectable line and wrinkle treatments are used to treat both fine lines and deeper wrinkles, most commonly on the face.  They work by relaxing the facial muscles, causing the lines and wrinkles to smooth out.  The areas most frequently treated are the forehead, frown lines between the eyes (glabella), and crow’s feet lines which occur at the outer corner of the eyes.  The treatment can make a dramatic difference to the appearance of the face, giving a more youthful, refreshed look.
