Anti-wrinkle injections are the most widely used non-surgical injectable aesthetic treatment used in the world. Although these injections are most commonly associated with anti-ageing treatment they have been used for many years by the medical profession for the treatment of migraines, urinary incontinence and to decrease the spasticity related to MS.
These injections work by temporarily relaxing the facial muscles responsible for causing the skin to wrinkle. It does this by affecting the receptors in the muscle which receive messages from the brain telling the muscle to move. Although the material itself leaves the body after around 48 hours, these receptors will remain inhibited for around 3 to 6 months before ‘re-growing’ back to normal function.
These injections are particularly useful for improving a ‘tired’ or ‘worried’ appearance and are most commonly used to deal with wrinkles in the forehead area and frown lines.
