Wrinkles is a very common presentation in any cosmetic clinic. They start initially as fine lines. Wrinkles can be dynamic or static. Dynamic wrinkles only present with movement but later on they become static and appear at rest. Excessive sun and environmental damage may also lead to other wrinkles which are not movement related. some typical types of wrinkles include, crow’s feet, frown lines, forehead lines, smile lines, bunny lines, chin lines and smoker’s lines.

What is an anti-wrinkle injection?
It is a purified protein produced by a bacteria that blocks the nerve impluses to the muscle injected, inhibiting its ability to contract, thereby relaxing the muscle and softening or eliminating the overlying wrinkles.
How does anti-wrinkle injections work?
When you frown or squint, you tense muscles in your face, forming deep creases in your forehead and around your eyes. These movements are often habitual and frequent, resulting in fixed wrinkles. Anti-wrinkle injections work by preventing the injected muscles from receiving the nerve signals that tell them to tense. If the wrinkle is continuously improved by repeated treatment, the overlying skin becomes stronger and better able to resist wrinkling, In time the habit of frowning may even diminish.
What is involved in treatment?
Anti-wrinkle injections are injected into the specific muscles that cause the wrinkle. The procedure generally takes only a few minutes. No anaesthetic is required and recovery is immediate. You will start to notice a reduction in muscle power (wrinkles) within 3-5 days, with the greatest reduction in 1-2 weeks. The effect of the injection lasts for different lengths of time in different people. Most people will require a repeat treatment every 3 – 5 months.
