‘Crows feet’, forehead lines or wrinkles caused by laughing, frowning, smoking or worrying can be softened with fine injections to weaken the muscles that cause the lines. By understanding the complex interaction of the many facial muscles, certain muscle fibres can be specifically targeted to achieve specific outcomes such as eyebrow elevation, correction of down-turning at the corners of the mouth and correction of certain facial asymmetries.
Dr. Quinn offers a personalized treatment program for the temporary relief of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in people between the ages of 18 to 65 years. With one simple ten-minute treatment, results can be seen within a couple of days and can last for up to four months.

Anti-Wrinkle Treatments: What does the procedure involve?
Dr. Quinn will determine where to administer the injections by examining your ability to move certain muscles in your eye and brow area. The location, size, and use of the muscles that create ‘crows feet’ or a furrowed brow vary markedly among individuals.
No anesthetic is required, but it is possible to numb the area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream if preferred. A series of fine injections will be administered while you relax in a reclining chair. Most patients compare the sensation to a pin-prick.
Treatment for severe underarm sweating
Severe underarm sweating that is not adequately managed with deodorants may be controlled by a series of tiny injections administered to the entire underarm area.
By temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands, the severe sweating stops.
Treatment for eyebrow shaping
A welcome side effect of our anti-wrinkle treatment is the ability to improve the shape of eyebrows. Careful placement of the tiny injections above and below the brows enables the surgeon to create a rounded, arched or flared brow shape.
Anti-Wrinkle Treatments: Duration
The procedure takes approximately ten minutes. There’s no recovery time needed, and normal activities can be resumed immediately.
Within days, you may notice an improvement in the frown lines that can last up to four months. We recommend a treatment every four to five months to help maintain the results. If treatment is discontinued, the frown lines will gradually look like they did before treatment.
