What are anti-wrinkle injections?
Anti-wrinkle injections are designed to relax muscles by blocking the signal between the nerve and the muscle. When you contract a muscle, as you do when you frown or smile, the overlying skin creases, each time, we call these dynamic lines. As we age these lines increase in depth and can be visible even when the muscle isn’t contracted, resulting in static lines, or wrinkles. Relaxing the muscle underneath the skin, effectively smooths out the overlying lines, and can reduce wrinkles with ongoing treatment. The effects start to become evident within 2-3 days, with full results assessed at 2 weeks. Anti-wrinkle injections have been scientifically proven to last 3-5 months.
