What are anti-wrinkle injections?
Anti-wrinkle injections are primarily used for lines and wrinkles that appear when we use our muscles repeatedly to make facial expressions. They’re used to relax specific facial muscles that cause expression lines. Because the muscles are relaxed their movement is restricted, preventing future facial expressions which lead to lines and wrinkles. As a result, the lines and wrinkles gradually smooth and new ones are prevented from forming. Injections are delivered where most desired. The goal is to weaken and relax - not paralyse- the muscles that cause wrinkles to appear.
