Anti-wrinkle injectables are one of the most sought after non-surgical treatments in the world and have become so mainstream that over 15 million people have had it.
Over the course of each day, we experience a range of emotions. Every feeling is expressed on our face and, over time, dynamic wrinkles are formed as a result of repeated contractions of our facial muscles, such as movements of the forehead, eyebrows, around the eyes, the chin, and above the lip. Moreover, as we age, our skin loses natural elasticity due to decrease of collagen and hyaluronic acid, which then makes our dynamic wrinkles turn into deep and permanent lines. Eventually, the skin may need to be replenished.
This is how the anti-wrinkle injectables work: a cosmetic physician injects small amounts of Botulinum Toxin type A, a protein naturally derived from the Clostridium botulinum bacteria into facial muscles that trigger dynamic wrinkles to form. The injections weaken the facial muscles and muscles around the eyelids area, causing the skin to smooth.
