Muscle Relaxing Injections Print E-mail

Anti wrinkle injections work by relaxing the muscles into which it is injected, and thereby inhibiting the formation of wrinkles which form in the overlying skin due to the contraction of these muscles. It is most commonly used to treat the wrinkles between the eyebrows, on the forehead and the “crow’s feet” outside the eyes. It can also be used to influence the shape of the eyebrows and to treat some asymmetries of the face and its movement. Treating early “dynamic” wrinkles can stop the development of permanent “static” wrinkles.
