What are anti wrinkle injections?

Wrinkles can be formed in a number of ways. One of these is repeated contractions of the facial muscles when you express yourself. Anti wrinkle injections work to counteract this effect by temporarily blocking the signals from nerves to muscles so that they contract less. This smooths out your wrinkles and stops them from getting deeper, giving your skin a fresh appearance.

Your anti wrinkle injections will take effect four to 10 days after they have been given. You will notice that your skin is visibly more relaxed and fresher-looking.
