About Anti-Wrinkle Treatments

The various ways anti wrinkle treatments may be used

Anti-wrinkle injections are simple, quick, non-surgical procedures that reduce lines and wrinkles in the upper face.

The injections can treat crow’s feet, forehead lines and the vertical frown (‘glabellar’) lines between the eyebrows, as well as other “off label” areas usually undertaken by medical practitioners only.

Various uses for anti wrinkle treatments

Anti-wrinkle injections are different from fillers both in the way they work and in their composition. Most dermal fillers are gels that mimic a naturally occurring sugar compound in our skin that attracts moisture and creates volume. Anti-wrinkle injections, on the other hand, contain a protein that causes the injected facial muscle to relax, smoothing out lines and wrinkles in the area.

Dermal fillers will show instant results, while anti-wrinkle injections deliver rapid, noticeable improvements within 2-5 days in most people.
