WRINKLE RELAXING INJECTION

Patient who are concerned about forehead lines, crows feet and glabellar (the area between the eyebrows) lines can get enormous benefit from wrinkle relaxing injections.  Botulinum toxins is the name that is often used for these injections.  However, WRI is the trade name for one particular brand of botulinum toxin.

Botulinum toxins work by paralysing muscles through the blockage of nerve signals at the site of nerve-muscle connections.

The injections are relatively painless and whole treatment is complete in around 10 minutes.  There can be some redness and swelling at the site of the injections.  This usually goes after a few hours.  Some patients way experience bruising.  This is temporary and will resolve in a couple of weeks.

The effects are notice from about 5 days after the treatment.  The maximal effect is seen at around 2 weeks.  This maximum effects lasts approximately one month and over the next 2-3 months slowly fades.

Wrinkle relaxing injections help soften lines.  However, some may persist.  If deep lines persists then patients may want to consider dermal fillers to help improve the appearance.
