How do anti-wrinkle treatments work?

March 28, 2019

Anti-wrinkle injections work by preventing muscles from contracting. In this sense, we think of anti-wrinkle injections as treating ‘active’ muscles as opposed to ‘static’ muscles. In other words, the injections prevent wrinkles from occurring when the muscle is used. Some ‘static’ or resting wrinkles will smooth out over time if multiple treatments are applied. If these lines don’t improve, it is possible to lift those deep lines with small amounts of filler (which is a different type of product).
