The Science Behind Anti-Wrinkle Injectables
Anti-Wrinkle InjectionsAnti-wrinkle injectables work cosmetically to reduce the appearance of wrinkles by temporarily paralysing facial muscles.
How it WorksThis cosmetic effect is achieved by blocking the release of acetylcholine, which naturally prevents nerve cell signals from being transmitted to muscles.
Anti-AgeingThis unique effect makes it cosmetically useful for smoothing facial lines. Anti-wrinkle injectables can also slow down the appearance of wrinkles as you age.
What to Expect
The treatment will last between 3-9 months. This is a broad answer. The first time you have had anti-wrinkle injections you will find that is wears off most quickly, on average in the region of 4-6 months. However, there is an accumulative effect. After a few treatments, you will find your treatment lasting longer. In general, people may find the crows feet area wearing off most quickly. This is due to the fact that this muscle is the thinnest and the injections disperse most quickly in this area.
If the wrinkles you wish to remove are in one of the above categories, yes. Certain types of wrinkles cannot be treated with anti-wrinkle injectables. Wrinkles around the mouth/lip area are treated by dermal fillers, which is a different treatment. It cannot be used to enlarge lips. Also injections are not recommended for pregnant or nursing mothers.
When your anti-wrinkle injections wear off, your face will return to its prior appearance. There will be no lingering effect. You will notice your wrinkles gradually reappear. That is when you can get a further treatment if you so wish.
Injectables can be done in a extremely natural way, leaving people guessing what is your secret. Indeed, I believe this is the best way to do it. An astute friend or family member may notice, especially if they have personal experience, but it will not be overtly noticeable. Indeed may women do not even tell their husbands about their secret beauty treatment, and attribute their fresh complexion to a good facial or a new skin cream.
