For decades now, anti-wrinkle injections have been used to remove skin wrinkles that occur due to ageing. Anti-wrinkle injections are also known as Injectables or Dysport. Nowadays, it is popularly known as Botox.
Injectables are usually advised for deep lines using dermal fillers and botulinum toxin Type A. Injectables are commonly known in Australia as “Dysport and Botox.” In 1977, botulinum toxin Type A was discovered. It was first used to treat strabismus, a problem in the eye muscles. Botulinum toxin Type A is also known as “Clostridium botulinum” which is a toxin bacteria that was approved in the late 1980s as an anti-spasmodic agent and is effective in treating strabismus. In 1996, doctors started to use the botulinum toxin Type A to remove wrinkles. Those who used the botulinum toxin Type A had reduced wrinkles, and since then this has been recognised as one of the best solutions for wrinkles and for those with unrestrained muscle spasms of the face. Because of its positive results on wrinkle removal, the FDA approved it as an anti-wrinkle solution in 2002.
Anti-wrinkle injections does not require anaesthesia because there is not much pain in this procedure. The Botulinum toxin Type A solution is injected using a fine needle in the area to be treated for wrinkles, frown lines, crow’s feet, and bunny lines.
