What are Anti Wrinkle Injections
Anti Wrinkle injections use a purified form of the botulinum toxin that is obtained from bacteria. Though it is deadly in larger amounts, this tiny, regulated amount is injected to correct wrinkles has been used safely for decades.
Anti Wrinkle injections works by blocking nerve signals in the muscles where it is injected. When those nerve signals are interrupted, the affected muscle is temporarily paralyzed or frozen. Without movement of these selected muscles in the face, certain wrinkles may be softened, reduced, or even removed.
Anti Wrinkle injections and other treatments made with botulinum toxin are sometimes called neuromodulators or neurotoxins.
Treatments made with botulinum toxin are sold under the brand names Botox Cosmetic, Dysport, and Xeomin.
What can Anti Wrinkle injections correct?
Anti Wrinkle Injections only works on wrinkles that are caused by muscle movement. These are known as dynamic wrinkles, and are often called "expression lines."
The most common dynamic wrinkles that Anti Wrinkle Injections can treat are lines on the upper face, such as the "11" between the brows, horizontal lines on the forehead, and crow's feet around the eyes. These lines are caused by smiling, frowning, squinting, and other facial expressions.
Anti Wrinkle Injections will not work on fine lines and wrinkles caused by sagging or loss of plumpness in the face. These are known as static wrinkles. Static wrinkles include lines in the cheeks, neck, and jowl areas.
Botox is not a permanent treatment. Repeated treatments are necessary for continued wrinkle-reducing effects. Most people find that the muscle-relaxing effect of Botox lasts for 3 to 4 months.
