Anti-Wrinkle Injection Treatment in Bangalore

Wrinkles are a part of the aging process and with growing age, the skin becomes thinner and starts to lose elastin. The ability of our skin to protect itself becomes less as we age. Eventually, wrinkles, creases, and lines form on the skin, making it lose its natural appearance.

Anti-wrinkle injections help to smooth lines as well as wrinkles to get an appealing and rejuvenated look. If these wrinkles are left untreated, they become 'static wrinkles'. Anti-Wrinkle Injections contain a neurotoxic protein that acts as a muscle relaxant and works wonders on wrinkles, expression lines, turkey neck, and crow's feet around the eyes.

The procedure of Anti-wrinkle Injections

  • The injections are administered into the targeted muscle locations with a very fine microneedle.

  • When anti-wrinkle injection is administered, muscles in the targeted area are relaxed and the nerve signals get blocked. The muscles relax and stop contracting when the nerves are not stimulated, resulting in fewer lines and wrinkles.

  • Most parts of the face can be treated, with the most frequent being around the eyes (crow's feet), the horizontal forehead lines, and frown lines. 

  • Within 5-10 days, one can expect to see results, which usually last for 3-6 months. However, we do not advise getting treatments too frequently because the body can develop antibodies, making the treatment ineffective.

What to expect after the treatment?

After the treatment, one can start seeing improvement in 2-3 days. But complete results will be visible in 2-3 weeks. It is important to keep the target muscles active for a few hours. The session takes 15-20 minutes to complete and it is a very quick procedure. Anti-wrinkle Injections are considered to be safe, painless and require no downtime.  So, one can resume their regular activities instantly after the treatment.

Longevity of the results achieved with Anti-Wrinkle Injection

The effects of anti-wrinkle injection treatment can last anywhere from 3 to 4 months. Dr. Priyanka Reddy recommends to re-treat the area every 3 months if the patient desires to maintain the results. One can stop the repeat treatments at any moment, and if so, the treated area will revert to its previous state.

Indications for Anti-Wrinkle Injection treatment

Anti-wrinkle Injections mainly help in treating wrinkles that are formed due to the repetitive movement of muscles. For example, some individuals work outdoors and tend to develop crinkles or vertical lines between their eyebrows. To correct these, Anti-wrinkle Injections act as a rescue. The commonly treated areas include:

  • Forehead
  • Area around the eyes
  • The bridge of the nose
  • Between the brows
  • The corners of the mouth
  • Neck

Not only this, but Anti-wrinkle Injections also help in:

  • Treating the gummy smile (when the gums are too visible while smiling)
  • Elevating the brows, also referred to as non-surgical brow lift.
  • Managing migraines.
  • Slimming the face by treating masseter muscles that can make the lower face look wider and square shaped.
  • Reducing excessive sweating by stopping the nerve signals that are responsible for producing sweat.

Difference between Anti-Wrinkle Injections and Dermal Fillers

Both Anti-wrinkle Injections and Dermal Fillers are very popular non-surgical anti-aging treatments worldwide. Both the treatments are considered to be very effective but they address slightly different concerns and have different mechanisms of action. Neuromodulators are another name for anti-wrinkle injections. This treatment reduces wrinkles caused by muscles contracting in the same location. Fillers work by filling in the area beneath the skin. This method is effective for reducing fine lines and deep folds caused by age-related fat loss. The major difference is that Anti-wrinkle Injections work by blocking the nerve signals temporarily while Dermal Fillers work by providing hydration and volume to the treated area.

When to consider anti-wrinkle injections?

Anti-wrinkle injections are the most effective at reducing the appearance of wrinkles. These injections work by relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles in the area being treated. Anti-wrinkle injections successfully diminish the appearance of fine lines, frown lines, crow's feet, surprise lines, and aging lines around the corners of the chin, mouth, brows, and upper lip by blocking muscle movements.

What is the composition of anti-wrinkle injections?

Anti-wrinkle injections contain a refined protein that works to relax the muscles around the injection site. This protein prevents the nerve from sending chemical instructions to the muscles, causing them to contract. Without these chemical messages, the muscles can stay in a resting condition and remain relaxed until the messengers restore. Because the movements that generate age lines and wrinkles are inhibited once the muscle relaxes due to the protein, they are no longer visible. This injection eliminates facial lines and wrinkles, giving a youthful appearance.
