The Entre Nous Guide to Injectable Wrinkle Treatments in the Bay Area

Wrinkles are one of the biggest tell-tale signs of aging—visible aging, that is. The age we feel on the inside is often much younger than the age we look. If only our skin could naturally reflect the age we are at heart, but most of us aren’t that lucky. 

Looking older than you feel can be a major blow to your self-esteem, but when it comes to skin aging, you have more options than simply accepting the hand you’ve been dealt. Luckily, there are now more safe and effective injectable treatments for wrinkles than ever before.

At Entre Nous Aesthetics, we offer injectable wrinkle treatments in the Bay Area for transforming fine lines and wrinkles and rejuvenating your overall appearance. 

Let’s take a closer look at facial wrinkles and the cosmetic injectables used to treat them!

What causes wrinkles?

Multiple factors contribute to the formation of facial wrinkles, but the main cause is facial expressions. Your face has 43 muscles, and these muscles are responsible for controlling your facial expressions. As time goes on, your smiles, frowns, and everything in between begin to leave their mark on your skin. 

But why do fine lines and wrinkles get worse over time? You can thank collagen loss and gravity for that. As we get older, collagen starts to break down, and our bodies stop producing the amount of new collagen needed to maintain smooth, wrinkle-free skin. As a result, our skin tends to become looser, thinner, and more prone to wrinkling.

Dynamic wrinkles in particular (the wrinkles caused by facial expressions) become more severe the longer they’re left untreated. So, it’s important to talk to your injector about treatment options as soon as possible. The earlier you seek treatment, the more preventative options you’ll have for reducing fine lines and preventing wrinkles from worsening over time. 

Types of Wrinkles

Here’s a look at some of the most common kinds of dynamic wrinkles we treat with injectable wrinkle treatments in the Bay Area:

Frown lines

Frown lines, also known as glabellar lines or “elevens,” are the dynamic lines and wrinkles that form between your eyebrows and above your nose.

Forehead lines

Forehead lines are simply the lines and wrinkles that form across the forehead, often as the result of expressions of surprise, frustration, or deep concentration. 

Crow’s Feet

Crow’s feet refers to the diffuse lines that branch away from the corners of the eyes. Picturing the shape of a crow’s foot in these lines can take some imagination and a bit of squinting. But don’t squint too hard, as this can make these lines worse. 

Bunny Lines

Bunny lines are the wrinkles that form on and around either side of the bridge of your nose. These lines aren’t always visible when your face is at rest, but they can often appear when smiling, laughing, or making other facial expressions that involve “scrunching” your face and nose.

Neurotoxins, also known as neuromodulators, are a category of injectable wrinkle treatments that use derivatives of botulinum toxin A (and other similar active ingredients) to relax muscles. Now that you know a bit more about how dynamic wrinkles form, it’s probably no surprise that treating them takes more than a skin-deep approach. 

Wrinkle treatments in the Bay Area—such as Botox, Daxxify, Dysport, and Jeuveau—work by temporarily relaxing the facial muscles underneath the wrinkled skin on the surface. To do this, these neurotoxins block neural signals from the brain telling the muscles to contract. 


Few words bring to mind wrinkle relief like Botox does. Botox Cosmetic is one of the most widely recognized and commonly used cosmetic treatments in existence. Why is Botox so famous? For starters, Botox was the first approved neurotoxin on the market—the original neuromodulator. 

But the prevalence of Botox has more to it than simply being the first on the scene. Botox is also one of the best-studied cosmetic injectables. Its safety and effectiveness have 20 years’ worth of peer-reviewed support. 

When administered by qualified injectors, Botox is safe and produces natural-looking wrinkle relief that usually begins to appear within 2 days of your first treatment session.  


If you’re looking for injectable wrinkle treatments in the Bay Area that deliver long-lasting results, you’ll definitely want to talk to your injector about Daxxify. Daxxify is an FDA-approved neurotoxin that can relieve wrinkles for twice as long as Botox (or more). Results are usually noticeable within a week of treatment, and they can last as long as 9 months to 1 year. 


Dysport doesn’t promise to turn your frown upside down, but it is perfectly suited for reducing frown lines. Its ability to spread more easily than Botox also makes it the perfect neurotoxin for treating larger areas like the forehead and diffuse wrinkles like crow’s feet. Many of our clients at Entre Nous Aesthetics see results sooner with Dysport than they do with Botox.


Speaking of faster results, Jeuveau (nicknamed “Newtox”) is a newer injectable neurotoxin that can deliver results in as little as 3 to 4 days after an injection session. Jeuveau is similar to Botox in terms of formula and, like the other neurotoxins we offer at Entre Nous, is effective and FDA-approved.


Dermal fillers are another category of cosmetic injectables that can be used for a wide range of volume-enhancing and anti-aging purposes. One of the most common uses for fillers is restoring lost volume—a common sign of aging.

Lost volume can be a concern in and of itself, but it can also exacerbate facial wrinkles, loose skin, and skin folds. This frequently happens because the skin becomes more fragile and less elastic with age. When volume decreases, the skin no longer has the tissue in place to support it or the elasticity to snap back to the natural contours of your face.

The role of fillers, then, is to fill in the hollows left by lost volume and provide support for loose skin. 


Juvéderm fillers are a highly effective and versatile collection of dermal fillers used for increasing volume, restoring a youthful appearance, and enhancing natural beauty. By precisely increasing volume under lines, wrinkled, or mildly loose skin, Juvéderm fillers can be used to reduce and even eliminate wrinkles by giving your skin the support it needs. 

With 6 different fillers, the Juvéderm collection offers an incredible amount of customizability to help you meet your needs and achieve your goals for all areas of your face. 


The Galderma family of fillers expands and enhances our menu for wrinkle treatments in the Bay Area even further. Not only does the Galderma family include fillers for nonsurgical lip enhancement, but it also includes fillers that can create gorgeous rejuvenating results by filling in the “hollows” beneath wrinkled skin with safe, natural-looking support. 

The Treatment Process for Wrinkle Treatments in the Bay Area

The Consultation

Before we can create a custom treatment plan for wrinkle treatments in the Bay Area, we need to gather the necessary info. At Entre Nous Aesthetics, this means coming in for your in-depth consultation. During your consultation, one of our expert injectors will assess your treatment needs and take some time to discuss your goals and expectations for treatment.  


When you arrive for your appointment, one of our providers will lead you back to one of our comfortable treatment rooms. Your comfort is extremely important to us. So, if you have any concerns about discomfort, let us know, and we’d be happy to do whatever we can to ensure a positive experience with as little discomfort as possible.

Your expert injector will carefully administer your injectable(s) in strategic areas to maximize your results. Depending on your unique needs, you may need multiple sessions to meet your goals.


Some results from injectable wrinkle treatments in the Bay Area may be visible soon after treatment, while others may take days or longer to fully develop. No two clients are exactly alike, so the best we can do is give you a highly educated estimate for when you can expect your wrinkle relief. 


Though many injectable treatments for wrinkles are long-lasting, it’s important to remember that they are not permanent. Maintaining your youthful results will require future maintenance and touch-up appointments. Your provider will be sure to walk you through what to expect and when to schedule your next appointment.
