Anti-wrinkle injections are more commonly called by their commercial names, which we cannot name here due to Australian law.
These are all types of botulinum toxin A (BoNTA) – which is a purified, medical preparation of a protein that is known to block transmission of signals that cause muscle contraction. This protein has been used for a long time in medicine to treat muscular spasms around the eye (blepharospasm), the neck (torticollis), and other areas (in the gut, bowel, gallbladder system).
In cosmetic medicine and cosmetic plastic surgery, BoNTA has an excellent application – it acts on the junction between the nerves and the muscles thereby preventing or helping to reduce the muscles in the treated area from temporarily contracting.
Therefore by careful titration, a gentle, pleasing relaxation of certain facial muscles can be achieved to bring about a smoothening of wrinkles especially those that occur with repeated facial movements, like frown or forehead lines. Only muscles treated will respond to BoNTA whilst remaining areas will still be able to animate.
The other medical application of these injections include excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis).
