Anti-wrinkle injection

With age, it is only natural to lose the elements that keep one’s skin soft, taut and supple. The ageing process can be unduly accelerated by repetitive facial movements like squinting, frowning, smiling and laughing. Loss of elastin and collagen, with superadded effects of gravity, eventually convert a smooth face and neck into a valley of wrinkles and folds, resulting in a sad, tired or angry appearance. For example:

  • Crow’s feet around the eyes are due to smiling and activity of the eyelid muscles (orbicularis oculi).
  • Worry lines on the forehead are due to contraction of the frontalis muscle when raising the eyebrows
  • Frown lines between the eyebrows are due to contraction of corrugator supercilii muscles and procerus muscle when concentrating or angry

Deeper lines or furrows are classified as dynamic or static. Dynamic lines appear with movement, i.e. the activity of facial muscles. Static lines are unchanged with muscle movement. Eventually, dynamic lines become static. Dynamic lines can be treated with anti-wrinkle injections while static lines may require dermal fillers.

Anti-wrinkle injections are made from a neurotoxin protein produced by an organic bacterium and related species. In cosmetic applications, anti-wrinkle injection is considered safe and effective for the reduction of facial lines and wrinkles.

This neurotoxin protein can be injected into the facial muscles or dermis layer in extremely small concentrations to prevent signals from nerve cells reaching the facial muscles. By relaxing overactive or contracted muscles, the overlying skin is smoothened.

Anti-wrinkle injections are administered by diluting the neurotoxin protein powder in saline and injecting it directly into neuromuscular tissue. It takes 24-72 hours for this neurotoxin protein to take effect. Full effects can be seen from 5 to 14 days. Muscles can be treated repeatedly over time to maintain the smoothed appearance.

Anti-wrinkle injections are not suitable for women who are pregnant or lactating, or by those who have had a previous allergic reaction to the drug or any of its ingredients.

Anti-wrinkles injection is an effective and popular treatment for facial lines and wrinkles. It is well researched and used worldwide. However, it is imperative that anti-wrinkle injections are administered by qualified medical professionals with specific training and experience in aesthetic medicine to minimize the risk of complications.

Frequently Asked Questions

Anti-wrinkle injections have been used for cosmetic purposes for over two decades and for medical purposes for even longer without any reports of long-term side effects. In Australia, there are six registered indications for the use of anti-wrinkle injections. These are; for children with cerebral palsy in particular body muscles to help reduce spasticity and allow normal movement, to reduce spasms of the eyelid, the treatment of cervical dystonia (neck muscle spasms), treatment of primary hyperhidrosis of the axillae (underarm sweating), treatment of frown lines, and the treatment of focal spasticity in adults.

Most people don't feel any pain but some may experience minimal discomfort. Topical anesthesia is available and can be used to manage discomfort.

It is advisable to avoid any anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), caffeine and alcohol in the day leading up to the treatment as these increase chances of bruising. Please inform the doctor if you are on antibiotics or blood thinners.

There is no downtime with anti-wrinkle injections. Rarely, minor bruising or pinprick marks may occur on fragile skin. Some may experience a slight headache after treatment but it should subside on its own within a few hours.

Normal activities may be resumed after treatment. However, you will be instructed not to exercise, lie down, or touch the treated areas for 4 hours. Additionally, facials, face massages, and other face treatments should be avoided for 2 weeks at least.

Anti-wrinkle injections are not done for those with muscle disorders and women who are pregnant or breast-feeding.

Typically, anti-wrinkle injections last between 4-6 months before they are metabolized by the body.
