Anti Wrinkle Injections
Here in Cleveland, Wynyard Dental as been providing anti-wrinkle injectables and injections to our clients.
Ageing is an inevitable part of life due to environmental factors, lifestyle, acne, poor skin health, etc. Over time, as the sun damages your skin, the temporary wrinkles that form on your face when you move your facial muscles may become permanent. This can unfortunately cause you to look stern, tired or angry even when the underlying muscles are still. This happens because the sun degrades your skin so much that it loses it’s natural elasticity
