Anti-wrinkle injections are a simple non-surgical, physician-administered treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in people from 18 to 65 years of age. It is the only treatment of its type to be approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Many facial wrinkles occur when we make repeated facial expressions. Anti wrinkle agent is a purified protein produced by the clostridium botulinum bacterium, which reduces the activity of the muscles that cause frown lines between the brows to form over time. The anti wrinkle agent works to relax the tiny facial muscles that cause these undesirable facial expressions, and, once the muscle is relaxed, you cannot contract it, thus preventing the formation of lines.
Anti-wrinkle injections will not radically change your appearance nor make you look like you’ve had a facelift. It will not make you look twenty years younger and it will not “freeze” your facial expressions. However, the anti wrinkle agent does soften lines noticeably and it only works where you want it to. It does not travel throughout your body and does not remain in your body indefinitely.
