Why Anti-Wrinkle Injections Work Better Than Any Cream Or DIY Procedure

Posted on

Wrinkles are a natural part of growing older, but that doesn't mean you have to surrender to them if you don't want to. As science and medicine progress, there are more and more treatment options becoming available for those wishing to reduce the effect of wrinkles. One such treatment is known as anti-wrinkle injections, whereby a small solution is injected into the skin on problem areas where your deepest wrinkles are appearing. Here are a few reasons why these anti-wrinkle injections work far better than any over-the-counter creams or treatments that you could do on your own.

Blocking Unnecessary Information 

Anti-wrinkle injections work by introducing a chemical that stops your muscles from responding to every little instruction the brain gives them. It is these subconscious instructions from the brain that cause most of the deep wrinkle lines by making the muscles contract for unnecessary purposes. When you are younger, these commands don't cause that much of a problem, but as you get older, they build into the wrinkles you see today. While creams and DIY treatments focus on fixing the wrinkles from the outside, anti-wrinkle injections stop the problem at its source and allow your skin to straighten out on its own.


While no skin treatment will be instant, anti-wrinkle injections work a lot quicker than those that you can get over the counter. That is because those creams take a long time to infiltrate the skin enough to make a difference, while injections are inserted straight into the problem area. Within a couple of weeks, the anti-wrinkle injections will have taken hold and your skin will look tighter and younger than before. For DIY treatments, it can take months, if there ever even is a noticeable change. 

Safe Environment

The skin is the largest organ in the body, and it is important that you treat it with care when attempting any medical procedure. Having anti-wrinkle injections done in a controlled environment, such as a dermatologist's or cosmetic surgeon's office, is very safe, so if there are any adverse reactions (which are very rare), they can be treated right away. When you go to try the latest fad in anti-wrinkle creams, peels or other treatments, you are risking your body having a major allergic reaction that can leave permanent marks. Don't risk your skin; you should always take your anti-wrinkle needs to a professional so it is done safely.
