|What are dynamic wrinkles?
are wrinkles that are the result of repetitive muscular

Are the treatments safe?
Yes! Muscle relaxant treatments have been used safely for 30 years for medical
conditions such as cerebral palsy. These treatments have been used for cosmetic
purposes safely in millions of patients.
What can I expect during the treatment?
After the consultation the procedure only takes about 10-15 minutes. The medication
is injected with a very tiny needle and the discomfort is minimal. You can immediately
return to your daily activity with no downtime.
Does it work right away? Is it permanent?
No. The onset of the effect is gradual. The full effect is seen in 7-10 days. The effect
is not permanent. It lasts between 3-5 months.
Will I look stone faced with no expression? Will I lose sensation?
Proper treatment with muscle relaxant injections by a qualified, experienced physician softens
your appearance and reduces dynamic wrinkles while allowing good facial expression. We customize
the treatment for each patient to get the desired result. There is NO effect on sensation.
How much do the treatments cost?
It depends on the areas treated and the
amount of product used. A proper consultation in our clinic is needed in order to determine what
is best for you. The full cost of treatment will be discussed before treatment is begun. If a minor
touch up is required [usually at 2 weeks after treatment] this is included in the price.
There are no surprises!
