Anti-wrinkle injections are most commonly used to prevent the formation of wrinkle lines developing and soften the appearance of the ones we already have.
Anti-wrinkle injections are a neuromuscular blocking agent made from the bacteria protein abobotulinumtoxin A. They work by temporarily preventing nerve signals to the muscles, thus relaxing them to help smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Over time, repeated muscle movements cause deep facial folds to form. By relaxing these muscles, anti-wrinkle injections help to achieve a younger-looking, rejuvenated appearance. Untreated muscles still work normally so that you can continue to express feelings naturally. It’s the lines that disappear, not your expressions.
Though results vary, there is typically a noticeable improvement in moderate to severe frown lines between the brows within 3-5 days reaching peak improvement at 2 weeks post injection and last for up to three months.
