Anti-wrinkle injections are made from the Botulinum toxin, which is a natural protein and neurotoxin produced by Clostridium Botulinum. It is widely used as a prescription medicine that, when injected into specific facial muscles, wrinkle-causing muscles are relaxed to reduce dynamic lines and create a younger, softer and natural-looking appearance. Due to TGA restrictions, the actual name of the anti-wrinkle injection cannot be used.

Administered every four to five months, anti-wrinkle injections are the most dependable way to reduce the visible effects of ageing by up to 10 years in many cases.

How Do Anti-Wrinkle Injections Work?

Anti-Wrinkle Injections work by inhibiting the transmission of messages between the nerve and the injected muscle. This temporarily relaxes the muscles so that they do not contract and create wrinkles in the overlying skin. The skin has a chance to rest and repair so that the wrinkles become less obvious and in some cases disappear completely.

Using Anti-Wrinkle Injections not only reduces the existing wrinkles, but can also prevent further wrinkles from forming. After treatment, the skin remains smooth whilst the untreated facial muscles contract in their normal fashion, allowing other facial expression to be unaffected.

What Can Anti-Wrinkle Injections Treat?

Anti-wrinkle injections can be used to treat existing facial lines caused by repetitive muscle movement and can also prevent new lines from forming. Common injection sites for addressing wrinkles and lines are the Glabella (the region between your eyebrows), the forehead, the outer corners of the eyes (Crow’s Feet), either side of the mid-chin (for down turned mouths) and the neck (for bands or visible chords).

They can also be used in facial shaping to treat facial asymmetry or other facial conditions that result from muscle action, for Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) and in some cases can be used to treat migraines.
