All You Need To Know About Wrinkle injections

What is anti-wrinkle injections?

Also known as wrinkle reduction injections, Melbourne anti-wrinkle injections are a non-surgical, anti-ageing procedure that can assist in reducing the appearance of moderate to severe lines and wrinkles. In essence, anti-wrinkle injections are used for lines and wrinkles -around the eyes like crow’s feet, around the mouth like frown lines – that are evident when our muscles are frequently used to make facial expressions. Anti-wrinkle injections are utilized to loosen specific facial muscles which form expression lines. The movements of these muscles are confined since they are relaxed, preventing lines and wrinkles to form. Therefore, the existing lines and wrinkles slowly smoothen and new ones are hindered from manifesting.

How do anti-wrinkle injections work?

Wrinkle such as frown lines and crow’s feet are caused by the contraction of facial muscle. Wrinkles are managed by hindering the chemical signal of neurotransmitter from the nerve-muscle and prevents the latter from contracting and forming wrinkles by using anti-wrinkle injections. Anti-wrinkle injections do not just aim to freeze facial muscles and expression. By adjusting the dynamics and interplay between facial muscles, it is possible to improve the appearance of the face through these injections.

Anti-wrinkle injections do not immediately enhance static lines or lines that are present at rest. These can be treated through by other anti-wrinkle injections like dermal fillers or Anti Wrinkle Injection injectables.

How is the anti-wrinkle injections performed?

Anti-wrinkle injections are injected to the targeted muscle area using a very fine needle. Though it may cause minimal discomfort just like other Anti-wrinkle injections, numbing agent or topical anaesthesia is used to lessen, if not eliminate, it. It takes up to 20 minutes to complete the anti-wrinkle injections. The targeted muscles are often identified ahead of time and only small amount of anti-wrinkle injections are uses. Anti-wrinkle injections gradually take effect and muscle relaxation is noticed within a number of days but can take up to two weeks.
