Anti Wrinkle Injections – A Guide To The Different Types Available


Mark Thomas Walters

Anti wrinkle injections are becoming increasingly available for people who want to wipe a few years from their face. Injections come in different varieties and use different methods to remove wrinkles. These methods range from using toxins to paralyze face nerves to using gels and filler acids to fill in the wrinkles. While none of these injections are miracle fixes, and some of them have side effects, many happy customers return to their doctors for repeat injections.

Botox is the most recognizable name in anti wrinkle injections. Botox is a chemical toxin derived from bacteria and essentially paralyzes the tiny nerves in your face, wiping away the wrinkles. Botox is founds to best work on crow s feet, forehead wrinkles and temple wrinkles. It is not as effective on frown lines. Botox does not always yield immediate results, and the affects usually begin 2 3 days after the injection. Each Botox injection lasts 3 4 months.


Restylane anti wrinkle injections are hyaluronic acid wrinkle fillers. While it was originally created for use in lip augmentation, Restylane is now more frequently used as a wrinkle remover. Restylane removes crow s feet, laugh lines, frown lines and filling in the hollows under the eye. Restylane is injected under wrinkles and lines in the face. Recovery time following the injection is 2 3 days. Unlike Botox, Restylane lasts 6 12 months.

One of the newest and most popular anti wrinkle injections on the market is Juvederm. Juvederm, an injectable gel, has nearly identical results to Restylane. It removes crow s feet, laugh lines, frown lines and under eye hollows. It is also frequently used as a lip plumper and can be used to fill in scars on the face. Juvederm is popular with users and physicians. It is a more pleasant experience for the user and physicians find it easiest to use. Juvederm injections can be done every 6 9 months.

As with any medical or cosmetic procedure, side effects are possible. Most side effects reported are temporary redness, pain during injection, and swelling and bruising at the injection site. The main component in Restylane and Juvederm is derived from a substance found in animal muscles, and users with allergies are advised to not use them. A serious possible side effect of anti wrinkle injections is an immune system reaction resulting in facial lumps and bumps, or granulomas. Anti wrinkle fillers should not be used if you have a history of anaphylaxis.
