Anti- Wrinkle injections are commonly referred to as Botox, short for Botulinum Toxin. A naturally occurring purified protein that is injected into facial areas targeted for rejuvenation. Muscles in the face contract and over time, this causes wrinkles and lines to form. These injections temporarily stop these muscles from contracting, resulting in a refreshed appearance.
How does Botox work?
Very tiny amounts of Botox are injected into the muscle, once in the muscle it works by blocking nerve impulses to the muscles which prevent them from contracting , the result is no muscle movement therefore smoothing out the lines and wrinkles.
