Wrinkles or expression lines occur when we smile, frown, squint etc. As we age the lines often increase in number, size and depth and are exacerbated by sun damage, smoking, loss of volume and the over use of muscles.
For more than a decade, men and women worldwide have turned to wrinkle relaxers to visibly improve their appearance.
A protein is injected into the muscle to relax it by temporarily blocking the nerve impulses that cause the muscle to contract. This reduces the appearance of lines and can also prevent the formation of new wrinkles.
The effect usually takes place within three to seven days of treatment and lasts up to six months. New nerve endings develop over a three to six month period, allowing the muscle action to resume.
This treatment is commonly known by its brand name, however under Australian law, brand names are not permitted to be published on any website.
