Facial wrinkles are the most recognizable and often the most frustrating signs of aging. However, with tried and true wrinkle reduction techniques, they’re easy to address. Dr. Schmidt uses injectable medications at key wrinkle sites to rejuvenate skin and achieve a smooth, natural appearance in the face.

    Who is a candidate for wrinkle reduction?

    Wrinkle reduction injectables can treat a number of different problem areas. Patients who are experiencing any of the following could be strong candidates for the procedure:

    • Horizontal wrinkles/lines of the forehead
    • Vertical lines between the eyebrows
    • Wrinkles toward the sides of the eyes (“crow’s feet”)
    • Horizontal wrinkles of the nose (“bunny lines”)
    • Wrinkles around the lips
    • Excessively mobile upper lip during smile (“gummy smile”)
    • Cobblestoned or dimpled chin
    • Prominent neck bands (“lizard neck”)

    How does wrinkle reduction work?

    Wrinkle reduction is a non-surgical technique that works by calming the muscles under facial and neck skin.

    Wrinkle-reducing injectables such as BOTOX® and Xeomin® block signals to specific muscle fibers around the area of injection. This prevents the contractions and spasms that lead to wrinkles in the skin overlaying those muscles.

    BOTOX® and Xeomin® are well established, effective medications, but are not used by all plastic surgeons. Dr. Schmidt is experienced with both and works personally with each patient to determine what specific types of injections will produce the most balanced and attractive results.

    Results and recovery

    Wrinkle reduction results are immediate—no recovery down-time is necessary.

    While results vary by individual, patients typically enjoy peak results for three to six months after wrinkle reduction injection.
