Will lines completely disappear after treatment with anti-wrinkle injections?

At 30 years old I got my first treatment with anti-wrinkle injections between brows on Wed. I can see a small change in lines but I am hoping they will become less indented. When I frown it’s slightly restricted but the current results aren’t what I was expecting. I know full results take up to 14 days, but I was hoping for them to (if not) completely disappear – be very faint. Will they become fainter in the next few days since it’s only been 3 days since I got the treatment? Will they ever completely disappear?

Typically, anti-wrinkle injections begin to have an effect 48 hours post-injection, and the effect continues to increase to a maximum at anywhere from 7 to 14 days post-injection. So, it is still early days for you! Of course, the maximum effect also depends on the dose that you were given. I like to see my clients after two weeks for a quick review appointment, as sometimes people will need a “touch-up”.

If your lines are “static-lines” (lines which do not disappear even when there is no muscle movement), you may find that they become less visible with every subsequent treatment.
