What are Anti-Wrinkle Injections?

Facial aesthetics injections are one of the world’s most popular non-surgical aesthetic procedures thanks to their anti-ageing benefits. Cosmetic treatments are often used to treat dynamic wrinkles. More specifically, lines above the nose or upper third of the face, particularly crows’ feet and frown lines. These are often the first signs of the ageing process.

Facial injections for wrinkles are commonly referred to as Botox injections (BTXn) as they use a chemical produced by the Clostridium Botulinum bacteria. This neurotoxic protein works by temporarily ‘freezing’ the nerves that stimulate the muscles you use when making facial expressions. These block neuromuscular transmission, inhibiting chemical messages from nerves to muscles and effectively ceasing muscle function.

Over time, anti-wrinkle treatments cause the inactivation of muscles which results in smoother skin. This “inactivity” of the muscles results in a softer appearance of wrinkles and lines. 

Anti-wrinkle care effectively reduces the appearance of dark circles and fine lines when applied to popular treatment areas like the eyes and forehead. When applied to these anti-wrinkle injection areas patients notice an overall improvement in the skin’s appearance.

In 1992, an ophthalmologist treating patients with severe eye spasms noticed that the botulinum toxin was also smoothing the skin surrounding the eye. This sparked the usage of this product as an aesthetic, anti-ageing treatment. Since then, anti-wrinkle injections and Botox treatment have undergone rigorous clinical testing. This treatment has been verified as a safe and highly effective procedure.

Although the treatment is highly effective for reducing lines and wrinkles, we understand that muscle movement is only part of the multiple mechanisms that cause the skin to become creased and lined. You will have noticed how the quality and elasticity of the skin isn’t how it was when you were younger. This is the natural process where collagen and elastin production slows down with age. This is what has created the need for dermal fillers and other injectable treatments.

Areas Where Anti-Wrinkle Treatment Can Be Applied?

Anti-wrinkle injections can be administered across many areas of the face and body. It should also be noted that anti-wrinkle injections can be used to prevent wrinkles in problem areas before they appear such as:

  • Crow’s Feet
    • Crow’s feet are wrinkles at the outer corners of the eyes, caused by muscle movements like squinting or smiling. Anti-wrinkle injections relax these muscles, while dermal fillers or laser treatments can also help depending on their severity.
  • Eye wrinkles
    • The delicate skin around the eyes is prone to wrinkles and fine lines. Dermal fillers add volume to the under-eye area, reducing wrinkles and dark circles, while laser treatments improve texture and tone.
    • Under-eye wrinkles can result from ageing, genetics and/or sun damage. Chemical peels and anti-wrinkle injections are effective treatments to resurface the skin, reduce wrinkles, and add volume. Eye creams with retinol or vitamin C may also help.
  • Forehead furrows
    • Forehead furrows, also known as forehead wrinkles, worry lines or frown lines, are caused by repeated muscle movements, such as frowning or squinting, that lead to the formation of lines or wrinkles on the forehead.
    • When the anti-wrinkle treatment is administered, it blocks the signals from the nerves to the muscles that cause the wrinkles. As a result, the muscle activity is reduced, and the wrinkles and lines on the forehead become less noticeable.
  • Top of the Nose
    • The creases on top of the nose, often referred to as “bunny lines” can also be smoothed with anti-wrinkle intervention.
  • Corner’s of the Mouth
    • These creases are lines that extend from the corners of the mouth towards the jaw that can make it appear that the mouth is drooping. Anti-wrinkle treatments can give them a much needed lift.

Anti-Wrinkle Injections have been safely administered for over 30 years. They treat a wide range of medical conditions. This includes one of its first medical uses, the treatment of eye muscle disorders or strabismus.
