Anti-Wrinkle Injections Info
Many people are familiar with anti wrinkle injections, which can utilise targeted compounds to change the dynamics of specific facial muscles. The injectable material is composed of a pure, natural protein.
Although some people worry that their face will appear frozen after undergoing this procedure, a skilled professional won’t alter your expression.
The aim isn’t to stop your face from moving. Instead, this treatment should precisely address the specific muscles that create wrinkles and lines when they move. They can relax muscles that influence the dynamic lines in the face. You won’t have an immobile appearance, but you can look more youthful and softer.
These injections can stop your muscles from contracting by impeding the neural signalling to the muscles. If the brain can’t tell those muscles to move anymore, they may not tighten anymore. The creases that develop in the nearby skin may also relax.
It’s essential to note that this procedure usually works best for dynamic wrinkles, or those that develop when your facial muscles move. Fine lines or creases that are present when your face is at rest may not go away immediately after this treatment. However, regular treatments can even smooth out those stationary wrinkles.
Uses for Anti Wrinkle Injections
Anti wrinkle treatment works best on the following types of creases:
- Frown lines
- Forehead creases
- Crow’s feet around the eyes
But this versatile therapy can also help lift the eyebrow, stop the corners of your smile from drooping and lower the upper lip to cover visible gums. It’s not limited to facial creases.
Many people complain about neck bands, the lines that become imprinted around your jawline and neck. These injections can relax the muscles that have scored those creases over the years and make you look like you had a facelift.
Your face may lose its symmetry as you age. When these injections are applied at the proper points, they can raise some areas of the face. They can also reshape the face by reducing the size of muscles that create bulk.
People with creases but minimal fat loss and sagging are the ideal candidates for this procedure. If you have lost a great deal of volume in your face or neck, you might want to consider a different type of treatment, such as dermal fillers or peels.
Details About the Procedure
This treatment is performed within a short time. Small injections are made into the trouble areas with extremely fine needles, these injections may give you a small amount of discomfort.
After the procedure, you can go about your daily life. Just don’t exercise, touch the area or lie down for four hours.
It takes some time for the muscles to relax. Therefore, you might not see the full results for up to two weeks. You should start to notice some positive changes within five to seven days, though.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQS)
Anti-wrinkle injections inhibit the transmission of neurotransmitter from the nerve to the muscle and can stop the muscle from contracting and forming wrinkles. Anti-wrinkle injections can also stop the constant compression of skin, preventing the permanent ‘etching’ of wrinkles in the areas treated.
Anti-wrinkle injections are most commonly used for treatment of frowns, forehead lines, and crows feet. They can also be used to create an eyebrow lift, to stop the mouth from pulling down, reduce gummy smiles (by lowering the upper lip), and to reduce neck bands.
After the injection, it can take about 5-7 days to notice the effect and 10 -14 days for the full effect.
The duration of effectiveness is dependent on the dose administered and can last up to 4 months, but generally on the first few sessions, the longevity is usually shorter – around 3 months. Anti-wrinkle injections can be more effective and last longer when given at regular intervals of 3-4 months due to progressive weakening of the muscles treated.
Normal activities may be resumed after treatment. However, you will be instructed not to exercise, lie down, or touch the treated areas for 4 hours.
Common: Bruise, redness, swelling of the treated area, asymmetrical results
Rare: puffy eyes, a drooping mouth corner, eyebrow or partial eyelid droop, failure to cause a significant change in the wrinkles
