About Anti-Wrinkle Injections

Anti-wrinkle injections are used to relaxes wrinkle-causing muscles, hence it creates a smoother and improved appearance.

It has been used in medical industry for more than 20 years worldwide. This kind of injections have been through comprehensive clinical trials, published studies and extensive clinical practice to be proven safe then used on people.

The process

It works by blocking the electric stimulation at the nerve endings that control muscle movement. Once it is injected, it will prevent the muscles to contract and result in a muscle relaxation after about three days.

The process will create a smooth rejuvenated appearance of the overlying skin, the result can last about three to six months. It is best to start the treatment before your muscle comes completely in action.

Types of Wrinkles

A. Dynamic wrinkles – early wrinkles

As skin ages, it loses its flexibility and is no longer able to spring back in place. This will then leave permanent features on your face. Facial movements and expressions, such as squinting or smiling, lead to fine lines and wrinkles. Each time you use a facial muscle, a groove forms beneath the surface of the skin.

As the muscles in our body start contracting, the overlying skin that is attached to them starts gathering and developing the underlying facial muscles. This causes wrinkles to appear creating crow’s feet, smile lines and makes you look frowning more often due to the lines on your forehead.

The mild loss of volume and collagen cover which will let muscle coverage during relaxation and create deeper wrinkles while making the contraction, this type of wrinkles are called as Dynamic Wrinkles.

In order to remove this type of wrinkles, you will need an anti wrinkle treatment which involves injections in the procedure. It works to temporarily decrease muscle movement for roughly 3-4 months and prohibits wrinkles from forming.

B. Static wrinkles – late wrinkles

Severe loss of localized collagen creates deeper lines and wrinkles which called Static Wrinkles. The best treatment for this type of wrinkles will be a combination of dermal fillers and anti wrinkle injection.
