Anti-Wrinkle Injections

Anti-wrinkle injections are one of the most popular, non-surgical cosmetic treatments available worldwide. It will temporarily reduce or eliminate frown lines, forehead creases, thick neck bands and crows feet near the eyes. By temporarily blocking the nerve impulses, the muscles that cause wrinkles relax, giving the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance.

How is it Performed

Used in a cosmetic medical setting as an injectable form of sterile, purified protein, small doses of anti-wrinkle injection block the release of a chemical called acetylcholine by nerve cells that signal muscle contraction. These few tiny injections block the nerve impulse,relaxe the muscle and the dynamic wrinkle overlying the muscle is smoothed away. Since the injection only relaxes the muscle beneath the injection site, it has no other effect on other elements of facial expression.

The effects of Anti-Wrinkle injections usually last 3-4 months, at which time another injection is required if the continued result is desired. After several treatments, the effects often begin to last longer. Repeated use is truly anti-ageing!
