What is an anti-wrinkle injection?

Overtime, stress or frown lines may develop on your face because of factors such as aging, sun exposure...
Anti-wrinkle injections are cosmetic procedures used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face by temporarily reducing movement in the local muscles. This procedure can also be very beneficial for other conditions:

  • Upper lip wrinkles
  • Marionette lines
  • Bruxism
  • Platysma bands
  • Hyperhidrosis
  • Glabellar frown lines (expression lines)
  • Crow’s feet

The main advantage of this procedure is that there is no surgery required to get long-lasting results and the treatment itself can be done within 30 minutes. The result is a younger, softer and more rejuvenated appearance, that you can get at We Are Beauty Clinic.
How long do anti-wrinkle injections last?
Anti wrinkle injectables are considered a long-lasting treatment. Patients usually can see the outcomes for a span of 3 - 6 months.

It’s important to bear in mind that individual experiences may vary due to age, metabolism and the area receiving treatment. Some zones of the face are more active than others, and therefore the muscle being relaxed is more active and requires more units of anti-wrinkle, with more frequent refreshes

However, the relaxation isn’t permanent due to the dynamic nature of our facial muscles and the natural breakdown of the injected substance over time.
The body gradually metabolises the injected material, allowing the muscle activity to return gradually. As muscle movement resumes, wrinkles and lines can appear again.
The timeframe of 3–6 months appears as a common range for the longevity of these effects. This window considers individual variations in metabolism, the specific product used, and the treatment area.
Areas with more robust muscle activity, like the forehead, might see effects wear off sooner than areas with less muscle movement, like the cheeks e.g.
Moreover, the temporary nature of these treatments is often seen as an advantage, as it allows clients to adjust and fine-tune their appearance as desired over time. Regular touch-ups can help maintain the desired look while adapting to any changes in skin and muscle behavior.
Are anti-wrinkle injections the same as botox?
Anti-wrinkle injections and Botox are often used interchangeably in conversation, but technically speaking, Botox is a brand name for a specific type of anti-wrinkle injection. The active ingredient in Botox is botulinum toxin type A, which works by temporarily paralyzing muscles, thus reducing the appearance of wrinkles caused by facial expressions.

Other brands of anti-wrinkle injections may contain similar active ingredients, but they might have different formulations or concentrations. So while Botox is a type of anti-wrinkle injection, not all anti-wrinkle injections are Botox.
