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 – 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, botulinum toxin A has an excellent application – the amount of nerve signals blocked to a muscle is directly related to the amount of toxin injected, and the location in which it is placed. Therefore by careful titration, a gentle, pleasing weakening of certain facial muscles can be achieved to bring about a smoothening of wrinkles especially those that occur with repeated facial movements. It can also improve position of certain facial structures such as the brow, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and changes in the smile where desired. The other medical application of these injections include treatment of migraines, and excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis).
