Cosmetic injectables normally last for 3-4 months before the relaxing effect on the muscle wears off. Regular treatment will keep your wrinkles at bay.
Can anti-wrinkle injectables prevent future wrinkles from occurring?
In a way, yes, the muscle and overlying skin is relaxed after the anti-wrinkle injectables and cannot contract in the same way as they did before the injections, preventing a wrinkle from forming or softening it. Regular treatments every three to four months allow the muscle to remain relaxed and thus preventing further lines from developing in the treated area.
Are anti-ageing creams as effective as anti-wrinkle injectables?
While anti-ageing creams can appear to reduce signs of ageing, they only treat the surface layers of the skin and are not, therefore, removing the wrinkles. Anti-wrinkle injectables accurately target specific areas and are injected directly into the muscle that causes facial contractions. They temporarily stop the nerves from letting the muscle to contract, permitting it to relax and the skin to release its wrinkle.
