The 3 top benefits of anti-wrinkle injections

Anti-wrinkle injections are becoming a popular alternative to cosmetic surgery for their less invasive and more convenient solution to anti-ageing. In fact, research suggests that 500,000 cosmetic procedures were completed in the last year alone, many of which includes anti-wrinkle injections. So why is this simple and effective procedure rising in popularity? Because it works, of course. Just one quick treatment will transform your complexion for 4-6 months. So, what are the benefits of anti-wrinkle injections? Let’s take a look.

1. Anti-wrinkle injections reduce or eradicate the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Isn’t this benefit enough?! By blocking nerve signals in your muscle, you stop contractions of the muscle which results in the wrinkles softening. Anti-wrinkle injections are perfect for fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes, on your forehead or anywhere else on your face. That said, there are some circumstances where anti-wrinkle injections may not be the right choice. If wrinkles are the result of sun damage or if wrinkles are deeper-set ‘static’ wrinkles. We suggest anti-wrinkle injections for adults 65 years and under.

2. Anti-wrinkle injections improve the symmetry of your face.

Is one of your eyebrows a little higher than the other? Anti-wrinkle injections can help! Providing there is a only a small degree of asymmetry, you can expect to see improvements in your facial contour and balance. In fact, anti-wrinkle injections have been shown to improve asymmetry caused by facial palsy. Try anti-wrinkle injections to help with asymmetry in the chin, lips, jawline or cheeks too.

3. Anti-wrinkle injections can reduce excessive sweating.

Excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis, can cause a person much embarrassment and even their affect daily living. Most commonly it occurs on the soles of the feet, under the arms or on the hands. The good news is anti-wrinkle injections (Botox specifically) can block the signals that your nerves send to sweat glands to produce sweat. You’ll still sweat normally outside the areas you get the injections, but you will experience up to 6 months of relief in those commonly affected areas.
