Anti Wrinkle injections are the most common procedure used in Cosmetics. The treatment is a simple Non-Surgical procedure. Treatment takes just 10 minutes and the effects can last from 2 - 6 months. The full effect can be seen in 1 - 3 weeks. The practitioner injects small amounts of product using a very fine needle into the specific facial muscles. A treatment with an injectable muscle relaxant does not add any volume and therefore a deeper line or fold will still be visible.
Muscle relaxants consist of a purified version of a protein and toxin produced by a bacteria found in meat. When injected into targeted muscles, these products work by temporarily blocking nerve signals to the muscle.
Over time the repetitive action of frowning, squinting and raising the eyebrows cause wrinkles on the face. After the injections, the muscles become relaxed so that you can't contract them to pull facial expressions, and over time, repetitive injections gradually smooth lines and prevent wrinkles from forming again.
Side effects are temporary and localized to the area of injection.
It depends on the type of injection, but possible reactions include swelling around the injection sites, which usually settle after a few minutes. Occasionally you may develop a bruise or a mild headache.
