Anti-Wrinkle injections are the most common treatment to help smooth skin

Injectables offer low risk and negligible downtime when expertly administered

The most common treatment areas are the:

  • Forehead wrinkles
  • Frown lines between the eyebrows
  • Crows feet wrinkles around the eyes

Muscle relaxing injections work by relaxing the contracted muscles that cause both fine lines and deep wrinkles, reducing their appearance. Over time, the muscles “learn” to relax, reducing the need for further anti-wrinkle injection treatments. Harnessing this effect early, to prevent wrinkles from forming, is often referred to as preventative.

FAQs about Injectables

How do anti-wrinkle injections work?

Anti-wrinkle injections block nerve signals to your muscles, which stops them from contracting. Essentially the treatment causes muscles to relax, softening the look of expression lines and wrinkles and giving the skin a tighter, smoother appearance. It normally takes between 3 – 7 days for the desired effects to take place.

When to use Anti-Wrinkle Injections?

Anti-wrinkle injections are commonly used for cosmetic treatments and are often used to treat areas in the upper third of your face. Lines around the eyes, brows and forehead are probably the most common areas treated by anti-wrinkle injections. Anti-wrinkle injections can also be used therapeutically as they are effective in treating excessive sweating and muscle spasms on the palms or armpits.

Are Muscle Relaxant Injections Painful?

Anti wrinkle injections are usually tolerable in terms of pain and you won’t feel too much discomfort. A fine needle is used to inject the skin and the majority of people will only feel a slight discomfort, with most being able to easily tolerate the treatment.

How Long Does the Treatment Take?

Anti wrinkle injections are a relatively quick treatment and can often be done on your lunch break. Depending on the number of areas you are having treated, your appointment will usually last around 30 minutes.

Are Anti Wrinkle Injections Safe?

Millions of people across the globe have used anti-wrinkle injections for years and, when administered correctly in a cosmetic clinic, complications are extremely rare making it a very safe procedure. There are a few known side effects, such as headaches, bruising or swelling, which are usually temporary.
