Anti-Wrinkle Treatment Quick Summary
What is the anti-wrinkle treatment?
Anti-wrinkle treatment is based around injections that relax the muscles preventing the skin from creasing and causing wrinkles. They are used most effectively to prevent the occurrence or to treat existing “expression lines” such as frown lines between the brows, surprise lines in the forehead and crows feet around the eyes and cheeks and lines around the lips and jawline. This is a non-surgical treatment.
Where is it done?: Dr. Verma provides anti-wrinkle treatment services in Finesse Cosmetic Surgery’s consulting rooms located in Honeysuckle Day Hospital.
Approximate cost: Costs will vary depending upon the number of injections required for the areas requiring treatment and how active your muscles are. Your initial consultation is complimentary if you proceed with your treatment plan on the day of the consultation, otherwise, there is a fee of $150 which is redeemable if you return at a later time for your treatment.
