How does Anti-Wrinkle Treatment Work?
Botulinum toxin primarily stops the release of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. By doing so, botulinum toxin blocks the signals from the nerves to the muscle. The muscle which Botulinum toxin is injected into can no longer contract.
The skin overlying the muscle relaxes and soften, which results in the removal or reduction of wrinkles and lines. By preventing facial lines from being made, anti-wrinkle treatment can erase the line whilst also preventing from getting worse.
Botulinum toxin only affects the muscles that it has been injected into. Untreated facial muscles will, therefore, be able to contract normally allowing normal facial expressions to remain unaffected.
