What are Anti-wrinkle injections?
A purified protein that is produced under sterile conditions(much like the antibiotic penicillin) is injected into certain muscles with specific doses to stop the movement of the muscle. This reduces wrinkle formation and shallows out existing static wrinkles. This gives the appearance of a nice natural smooth skin.
A common use of Antiwrinkle injections is to treat facial wrinkles which have developed from dynamic facial expressions. Anti wrinkle injections halt the dynamic facial expressions temporarily, thus reducing or removing the minor facial wrinkles. Common areas treatable with anti wrinkle injections are frown lines, crow’s feet, bunny lines and for eyebrow elevations. The reduced wrinkles usually lasts 4-6 months although many people find that they get longer lasting results than 4 months, particularly with repeated injections over time.
