Anti-Wrinkle Injections are a simple, safe, and effective way to eliminate unwanted facial lines and deep wrinkles. They work to relax facial muscles making lines and wrinkles, such as worry lines, crow’s feet and frown lines, less obvious.

What causes wrinkles?
Whenever you laugh, frown, concentrate or squint, your facial muscles contract, causing wrinkles and lines to form. As you age, your skin loses its elasticity and those lines can deepen and become permanently etched on your face. Frown lines between the eyebrows can become particularly noticeable, making you look angry and worried even when you are not. What are the possible kinds of treatment for facial wrinkles? Pronounced facial wrinkles can be corrected with surgery, by injecting filling materials or medications, such as botulinum toxin A, or through a combination of these various methods.
Which of these methods is the right one for you depends on the localisation, type and degree of the wrinkles. What is botulinum toxin treatment? Botulinum toxin A is a naturally occurring bacterial protein. Tiny doses of this substance are injected just under the skin into the muscles that are treated to reduce wrinkles. It specifically blocks the nerve impulse, allowing these muscles responsible for the excessive contractions that cause wrinkles to relax. Other nerve functions – such as the skin’s sense of touch – are not affected. The treatment consists of 5 injections above and between the eyebrows.
The procedure causes minimal discomfort and you may resume normal activities very soon after the treatment. How long does botulinum toxin treatment of glabellar lines last? The initial effect of Azzalure® treatment will begin to appear within 2 to 3 days. The effect of the injections is always temporary. It usually lasts about 4 months and sometimes more. The next treatment depends on the duration of the effect in each individual patient. It is important that re-treatment is not performed more often than every 3 months.
What are the risks and side effects of botulinum toxin?
Side effects observed after treatment with botulinum toxin A in this indication result mainly in injection site reactions such as pain, discomfort, stinging or bruising at the site of injection. It is also possible that you may get a headache. More rarely the effect of the botulinum toxin may spread to unwanted muscles around the frown lines, thus resulting in unwanted and transitory drooping of the upper eyelid, tired eye, swelling eyelid, watering eye, dry eye, twitching of muscles around the eye
