Anti Wrinkle Treatment
Botulinum toxin is used medically to treat certain muscular conditions, and cosmetically to remove wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing muscles (anti wrinkle injections). It is made from a neurotoxin called botulinum toxin that is produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum.
In order for muscles to contract, nerves release a chemical messenger, acetylcholine (a neurotransmitter), at the junction where the nerve endings meet muscle cells. Acetylcholine attaches to receptors on the muscle cells and causes the muscle cells to contract or shorten.
Injected botulinum toxin prevents the release of acetylcholine, preventing contraction of the muscle cells. Botulinum toxin causes a reduction in abnormal muscle contraction, allowing the muscles to become less stiff. (MedicalNewsToday, August 2017)
I find this saying the easiest to explain what anti wrinkle injections can do; "If you don't crinkle, you won't wrinkle".
The Australian therapeutic goods administration (TGA) guidelines do not allow the use of specific medical product names on the internet. Therefore, all references on this site refer to approved headings of anti-wrinkle injections, dermal fillers and lip enhancement. The practice uses only the highest quality and medically tested products available. As I cannot discuss the individual products, the details of adverse effects possible can only be discussed at your consultation.
