Anti-wrinkle injections have been gaining popularity for well over twenty years. In fact, over five million injections are made annually in the United States. This simple procedure yields immediate, fantastic results with no recovery time and can even be completed on your lunch break. The injections are typically done on facial tissue to lessen the appearance of wrinkles. The most common location for injections is around the eyes and on the forehead. Botox is also used for various other medical purposes such as excessive sweating in the face or underarms.
The Botox is injected into the muscle, temporarily relaxing the facial muscles that contract and expand with normal facial expressions. Physicians use nerve blockers to relax facial muscles, rendering the muscle unable to create new lines or deepen current wrinkles. When the muscles are relaxed, the appearance of wrinkles and lines is drastically reduced, leaving behind smooth skin that looks ten years younger.
Anti-wrinkle injections are effective, clean and even fast. The procedure is incredibly simple and can be completed in under fifteen minutes. As little as five or as many as ten injections are made directly at the site and the patient is free to resume their daily activities immediately following the procedure. Patients sometimes experience some very minor discomfort during the procedure, but the pain should subside rather quickly.
Gold Coast specialists Cosmos Clinic state that, after the original injection, patients will see results in as little as three days. In some cases the full results may take up to two weeks to become fully apparent. The result is younger looking skin that last at least three months, but can last for up to six months. Studies show that patients that maintain their anti-wrinkle injections with up to three annual visits will see permanent improvement to the lines in their skin. While maintenance on specific areas isn’t a necessity, the results are often so pleasing that patients want to maintain them permanently.

Relax your frown
Why You Have Wrinkles
Constant use of facial muscles combined with changes in your skin as you age, leads to lines and wrinkles as the skin sags and collapses around areas that are under repeated stress.
Squinting; smiling, frowning-all these expressions leave their mark on your face and make you look exhausted, older and a bit annoyed.
How Does Anti-Wrinkle Injectable Work?
An Anti-wrinkle injectable is a simple, non surgical procedure that will eradicate your facial lines in moments with a quick, painless injection. All you have to do is sit still, frown so the therapist can see the pattern your facial contraction has on your skin, and get a tiny injection or series of them (depending on area) with a very fine needle.
A small dose of a purified protein is injected into the facial muscle that is causing the wrinkle, and paralyses it by temporarily blocking the nerve impulse to the muscle, allowing it to relax. This allows the skin overlying the muscle to smooth out, and the persistent lines that have developed over time appear greatly improved.
