What are anti-wrinkle injections?
Anti-wrinkle injections are a well known safe and effective cosmetic wrinkle treatment with very few health risks. It is a prescription only medicine made from neurotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum (botulinum toxin A). Whilst it has a wide range of uses in the medical field, such as treatment of muscle spasms and excessive sweating, cosmetically, anti-wrinkle injections provide a more youthful, rejuvenated and smoother skin.
Where are anti-wrinkle injections administered?
Anti-wrinkle injections are predominantly used to treat the forehead (Frontalis), brow area – frown lines (Glabellar) and around the eye – crows feet (Orbicularis Occuli).
How do anti-wrinkle injections work?
Over time, the muscles we use in our face to create facial expressions, sun damage and the human ageing process can carve out grooves, lines and wrinkles in the skin
Anti-wrinkle injections relax the facial muscles, thus preventing wrinkling of the skin. This results in a visibly more youthful, smoother and less wrinkled skin. The effects last for a period of 12-16 weeks.
According to research published in the Journal American Medical Association (JAMA) (2025), a recent study carried out to determine whether botulinum toxin A increases skin pliability and elasticity provided further evidence that there is an alteration in biochmechanical properties of the skin after injection with botulinum toxin A. Further, a progressive reduction in the wrinkle levels with repeated treatments was evident.
