Unwanted expression lines, fine lines and wrinkles are caused by your facial muscles performing common repetitive actions such smiling, scrunching, squinting, and frowning. Over time, these actions cause creases to form on the skin. In order to prevent this happening, anti-wrinkle injections (also called wrinkle relaxing injections) can be used to ease muscles and encourage the skin to return to its previous wrinkle-free state
Anti-wrinkle injections are injectable treatments of a prescription only purified protein medication. Precise doses of which are injected into targeted sites temporarily interrupting the transmission of nerve signals to the exact muscles that cause harsh expression lines. This non-surgical technique results in relaxing the specific muscles that cause unwanted lines and wrinkles.
With regular treatments, the skin cells are protected from the stress of repetitive creasing, and are able to regain thickness and return to a smoother state. Even the most established of creases can stop being reinforced by the same movements, and can therefore soften dramatically.
Wrinkle relaxing treatments used to treat wrinkles that have formed over time. They also can be used as a preventive measure. Results can vary for each individual so it’s best to discuss expectations and desired outcomes during your consultation.
The effects of the treatment will begin within the first days and weeks following injection, and will last approximately 3-4 months, with wrinkle-smoothing results improving over time. As the effects of the anti-wrinkle injections last temporarily, a new course should be administered to continue the treatment of facial lines.
It’s important to note that anti-wrinkle injections don’t immediately fill wrinkles. They treat the cause, allowing the skin a rest from being folded by the repetitive movements that result in wrinkles and lines on the face.
Anti-wrinkle injections are useful for those looking to refresh their look, protect their skin from lines, and to also treat existing wrinkles on the skin. In our experience, anti-wrinkle injections are most effective for those who are concerned about lines or wrinkles around the eyes, eyebrows, and forehead. These treatments can also help to prevent and treat fine lines around the mouth, nose, chin, and neck.
