How Do Anti-Wrinkle Injections Work?

Anti-wrinkle injections are a popular choice for many. They can help you achieve many results, from smoothing out fine lines to reducing the appearance of deep-set wrinkles in the skin.

This is a very quick and easy procedure that works by relaxing your facial muscles which can reduce the appearance of wrinkles. It is non-invasive and results can be seen within a week of having it done.

The way the treatment is done may differ based on the results you desire, however, the way in which it works is much the same. But how do these injections actually reduce the appearance of wrinkles?

By targeting specific areas of the face, these injections work by relaxing the muscles and blocking the nerves, which helps to relax your face. This prevents much of the movement which allows the skin to appear less wrinkled.

Many wrinkles and fine lines are more obvious when you move your face. The face is a very expressive part of the body and often we will move our face without noticing.

By using anti-wrinkle injections, your face will remain firm and relaxed at all times, minimising your wrinkles and fine lines.

The most common areas to treat are the forehead, around the eyes and around the lips. These are all areas where the most movement occurs so wrinkles can appear more prominent around these places.

Fillers are also a popular option that produce similar results but work in a different way. Instead of relaxing the muscles, fillers help to plump the tissue, which stretches the skin and reduces wrinkles and fine lines. This helps the skin appear firm, youthful and smooth.

The results can be very similar so the choice of which to get is entirely your choice, although it may be worth discussing with your consultant as they will be able to recommend the best option.
