Different uses for Anti-Wrinkle Injections we bet you never knew
Traditionally, anti-wrinkle injections have been used to treat wrinkles. These injections work by paralysing the muscles, preventing them from contracting, which are responsible for the deep lines and wrinkles I’m sure many of us aren’t a fan of.
But did you know that these anti-wrinkle injections aren’t just only good for stopping wrinkles in their tracks? In fact, this injectable treatment offers other aesthetic benefits, most of which you might not even be aware of!
Lift your lips
When it comes to achieving fuller lips, many tend to gravitate towards fillers as the answer. But did you know a few drops of anti-wrinkle injections strategically placed in the upper lip border can help to roll the top lip out slightly so that it appears fuller, without any dermal fillers required.
This has also been found to be a suitable alternative for those looking to reduce their gummy smile without adding volume to their lips.
Tighten the jawline
As we get older, it’s not uncommon to notice loosening and sagging of the skin around our jawline. Anti-wrinkle injections can help to relieve tension in the platysma muscles, the very muscles responsible for the appearance of sagging skin in the jaw area.
By administering anti-wrinkle injections here, your face will appear lifted as skin is tightened thanks to the collagen-producing stimulants found in these injections, restoring a more defined, tighter jawline.

Soften the jawline
Over-exuberant teeth-grinders often find themselves with a wider jawline than most. If a square-ish jawline is not within your ideal beauty standard, there is the option of having anti-wrinkle injections administered to help shrink the muscle, narrowing the jawline, creating a slimmer, more V-shaped appearance.
You might also enjoy the fact that your jaw is not aching as much as before from the constant teeth grinding it was subject to.
Achieve smoother, clearer skin
Did you know miniscule doses of anti-wrinkle injections can effect smoother, clearer skin? This treatment requires injections all over the face that can help with excessive oiliness and minimise the appearance of pores, causing sweat glands and sebaceous glands to shrink resulting in smoother skin without compromising on facial muscle movement.
Many happy patients have reported visibly smaller pores, with skin that’s less oily and more translucent thanks to this treatment. Other beneficial side effects include a firmer, more lifted face, and skin texture that looks more refined.
