Treatment for Wrinkles
Injected using a super-fine needle directly into the desired muscle. Ice is used to temporarily numb the area prior to injection. During injection a mild pressure sensation may be felt which stops immediately after injection. No long-term discomfort is felt. The entire procedure takes less than 5 minutes, although Drs. Horton and McCaskill will spend more time with you discussing goals and desired effects prior to the procedure. Occasionally, patients will report a mild headache for a few days after an initial Treatment for wrinkles, which is easily treated with Tylenol. Although VERY rare, occasionally pinpoint bruising may occur. The chance of bruising can be reduced by avoiding products like Advil/Aleve, fish oil, Ginko, vitamin E and red wine for several days prior to your treatment.
