Wrinkle treatment may be used to prevent frowning i.e. to stop the “corrugator” muscles from drawing the eyebrows together. It can also be used to reduce other overactive facial expressions such as excessive brow-raising or scrunching up of the crows’ feet. As the muscles are selectively targeted, there is no danger of being expressionless.
This type of treatment can be used to treat a wide variety of health problems and is also used to treat hemifacial spasms also known as facial spasms. Its cosmetic applications are more recent.

Do not rub or massage the treated area for at least 4 hours. It is recommended that you avoiding having any facials, acupuncture, massages or other treatments over the treated area for one week.
