THE SCIENCE BEHIND ANTI-WRINKLE TREATMENTS
Anti-wrinkle treatments contain a protein with the ability to block the release of a neurotransmitter called acetylcholine from nerve endings within the body. When this protein is injected into targeted muscles in the face, it prevents them from contracting, helping to reduce wrinkles formed by repeated facial expressions, such as frown lines and crow’s feet.
The protein used in anti-wrinkle injections produces a local effect in the muscles being treated. Only a qualified healthcare practitioner should administer anti-wrinkle treatments for aesthetic purposes.
