Anti-Wrinkle Injections

While anti-wrinkle injections are predominantly used to soften lines and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, they can also be used for the purposes of facial slimming and contouring.

How Do Anti-Wrinkle Injections Shape The Face?

Unlike dermal fillers, which are injected below the skin to add contours and volume, anti-wrinkle injections act directly on the nerves which control muscular contractions. Botulinum toxin, the substance used for anti-wrinkle injections, suspends the connection between the nerves and facial muscles in the treated area. This reduces the activity of facial muscles often responsible for wrinkles, such as frown lines, furrowing between the brows, and crow’s feet from squinting, for example. While this suspension of movement does not directly contour the face as dermal filler does, it can help to soften features and reduce the size of large muscles that make the face appear angular or rigid. The muscles of the midface are a good example, as these can become enlarged from chewing or clenching, and result in a squarer jawline. Using anti-wrinkle injections can soften the jawline by relaxing these midface muscles, therefore decreasing their size and prominence.

How Long Do They Last?

The longevity of anti-wrinkle injections is different in every individual, and can be influenced by area of treatment, the depth that the botulinum toxin is administered, and the quantity used. Most people find their injections last 3-6 months.

What Are The Risks?

There are minimal risks associated with anti-wrinkle injections, but this can vary according to the location of treatment. As per all injectable treatments, there is a risk of bruising, bleeding and/or swelling at the injection site, and infection if care instructions are not followed.
