Anti-wrinkle injections

What are anti­-wrinkle injections?
 
Anti-wrinkle injections work by temporarily freezing the muscle so that wrinkles cannot be produced by muscle contraction. The commonest areas to be treated are the frown lines, forehead and crow’s feet lines. A number of companies that produce these anti-wrinkle injections, go by the trade names of BotoxTM , VistabelTM or DysportTM.
 
How are anti­-wrinkle injections administered?
 
The anti-wrinkle injections are administered with a very fine needle at multiple sites according to the area to be treated. A numbing cream can be used to lessen the mild discomfort. The effect of the anti-wrinkle injections are not immediate and can take up to one week for maximum effects.
 
The average duration of the effect is between 3 to 5 months before a repeat treatment is required. This varies from person to person. Occasionally the effects may last longer than 5 months and very rarely patients may be resistant to treatment seeing no effect at all.
