Cosmetic injectables are some of the most popular enhancement treatments available, and The Layt Clinic offers effective options with results that are long-lasting. Plus, our injectable wrinkle reduction treatments are quick procedures with little to no downtime – most patients can resume normal daily routines immediately after treatment.

What is injectable wrinkle reduction treatment?
Injectable wrinkle reduction is a way to reduce signs of facial ageing and give you a more youthful and refreshed appearance. Wrinkles and creases are typically caused by the contraction of muscles in the affected areas. The solution used in injectable wrinkle reduction contains a highly-diluted form of botulinum toxin type A, which temporarily stops the muscles from contracting and results in a smoother appearance to the skin. Injectable wrinkle reduction is performed with an ultra-thin needle, and a numbing agent can be applied to the target areas to make you feel as comfortable as possible. The entire procedure usually takes about 15 to 30 minutes to complete.
Who is a candidate?
Injectable wrinkle reduction can help patients who have subtle facial lines that appear only when they frown or squint, or it can be used to smooth out more prominent lines and wrinkles along the face. These can include crow’s feet, frown lines, creases along the forehead, and wrinkles in other facial areas.
In some instances, patients with severe skin laxity in the face may find surgical enhancement options more beneficial to their ultimate goals. Our Nurse Aestheticians and Doctors will be happy to meet with you and discuss all aspects of injectable wrinkle reduction. There are a variety of options available, and they can help you determine which treatment will be best for your needs.
What can you expect after the treatment?
After injectable wrinkle reduction treatment, you can expect results between 3-14 days. While there may be some mild bruising or redness at the injection sites, this should fade within the next few days. The effects of injectable wrinkle reduction can last three months or more, and you can keep the results going with follow-up treatments.
In addition to these injectable wrinkle reduction treatments, our practice offers a full range of other cosmetic injectables that can enhance the lips and rejuvenate other areas of the face.
