What are anti-wrinkle injections?

Anti-wrinkle injections are substances that help reduce the signs of aging. This treatment contains toxins that work by blocking the chemical signal that the brain sends to the muscle telling it to contract. It is your brain that sends signals to your facial muscles to squint when the morning sun rays hit your eyes.

When the muscles contract, creases and folds are formed and developed on the skin. However, when these signals are blocked your muscles will not contract or move according to the needed facial expression. And when the muscles are halted from contracting, the muscles are relaxed and softened. Thus, leaving a smoother, firmer, and younger appearance.

Are anti-wrinkle injections safe?

Have you ever wondered why anti-wrinkle injections are well-tolerated even if they contain muscle relaxant toxins?

Anti-wrinkle injections that contain neuromuscular blockers are considered relatively safe for patients of any age, gender, or ethnicity so long as they are administered properly in a clean environment by a professional cosmetic doctor. These anti-wrinkle substances are approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration or TGA under particular Australian consumers guidelines.

Anti-wrinkle injections are among the safest and most reliable cosmetic procedures available to improve not just the appearance of your skin but its texture as well. However, some anti-wrinkle substances did not pass some consumer product safety and reliability tests. Thus, it is best to find a professional provider that uses anti-wrinkle injections.

Is it worthwhile to pay for expensive anti-wrinkle injections?

So, what are you really paying for?

Dermatologically tested and anti-wrinkle injections offer cost-effective and reliable results. This is what you are actually paying for.

When purchasing a cosmetic product or going for a cosmetic enhancement procedure, always ask yourself, “am I getting a value-for-money treatment?”

Imagine this, getting an anti-wrinkle injection that did not pass quality tests which are sold half the price of authentic and brands but eventually give your skin an adverse effect. In which case, you may need to be rushed to the hospital for an emergency or more intricate treatment to relieve you from any adverse effects.

Wouldn’t it be better to buy an authentic product that is more expensive but will not cause and cost you emergency treatment?

Getting a rather unsure cheap type of anti-wrinkle product may cause you to pay extra for medical premises. Remember not to gamble on your safety and the protection of your skin, always trust the authenticity of your skin clinic in Melbourne that provides safe, cost-efficient, and reliable anti-wrinkle injection procedures.

Why are some anti-wrinkle injections sold cheap?

Anti-wrinkle injection price differences are caused by the following factors:

  • You may not notice but some of these anti-wrinkle injections have expired. Some sellers believe that expired anti-wrinkle substances are still good until the third month following the expiration date. Thus, it is best to know the expiration dates of the products you buy.
  • Some of these anti-wrinkle injection brands did not pass TGA approval tests but some sellers still sell them in the market at a cheap price. However, as much as these substances did not pass the TGA approval test, it also means that they are not safe to use.
  • There are anti-wrinkle products that are “imitations,” fake, or counterfeit. They partake in the name of a specific brand but in truth and in fact, they are not authentic, hence, sold at a cheaper price. 
  • Although some are using authentic anti-wrinkle injections, they are performed or administered by non-professionals. This can be very risky as these providers may not have enough training and skills to perform the procedure.
  • Another reason why some of these anti-wrinkle injections are sold much cheaper than other brands is that they are diluted heavily making them less effective. In some instances, they are diluted in a substance that may cause an allergic or adverse reaction to the body or skin.

What happens if you buy these cheap anti-wrinkle injections?

They say that the price says it all. However, anti-wrinkle injections do not have to be expensive but instead cost-effective and safe. In this light, you should also find a professional provider for anti-wrinkle injection procedures.

Purchasing a cheap anti-wrinkle injection or getting a procedure from a non-professional may cause the following adverse reactions:

Disfiguring Your Face

Have you heard of cosmetic horror stories where a patient’s face gets distorted?

Using unbranded, counterfeit, diluted, or expired anti-wrinkle injections may lead to an unbearable result of disfiguring your face. Thus, it is best to know what you are getting and where you are getting it.

Severe Allergic Reaction

Anti-wrinkle injections are formulated with albumin or egg as the base ingredient. If you have a high allergic reaction to these ingredients, it is best to let your provider know or read the indications on the label of your anti-wrinkle injections to ensure safe and effective results.

Vision Impairment

Anti-wrinkle injections are often used to combat crow’s feet and fine lines around the eye area. When the wrong anti-wrinkle injection is used, it may cause an adverse reaction to your eyesight or worst, you may lose your eyesight.

The surrounding structures of the eyes consist of intricate muscles, ligaments and blood vessels. If anti-wrinkle injections are administered by someone who is not well-versed with the facial anatomy, the substance may be administered in the wrong site. This, in turn, may also lead to vision blurring or even blindness.

Skin Necrosis

This happens when the anti-wrinkle injections are administered into the wrong part of the face resulting in the blockade of an artery or a major blood vessel. This may also happen when the wrong anti-wrinkle injection with highly corrosive ingredients are administered into your facial structures.

Some ingredient may be corrosive when injected into the skin tissues which in turn may cause s blockade along the arteries. When there is a blockage in the artery, the supply of blood is blocked which in turn will cause the connected skin tissues to lose their verve and will begin to rot.

Infection on the Injection Sites

While mild to moderate swelling and bruising are normal downtimes after an anti-wrinkle injection procedure, excessive bleeding, redness, and infections are another story. The use of the wrong kind of anti-wrinkle injection or getting this treatment at an unsafe place or wrong provider may lead to infection.

Counterfeit anti-wrinkle injections may have harsh chemicals that can cause allergic reactions which in turn may lead to severe infection. When you notice aggravated swelling and bruising coupled with extreme bleeding, be sure to visit your cosmetic doctor immediately.


Who would not be pleased about getting an antiwrinkle injection procedure at a lower cost?

Indeed, getting an anti-wrinkle injection from a non-professional may cost less but some may not be familiar with the muscle anatomy of the face. Remember that it is not worth having the substance administered at the wrong injection site as it may lead to migration. Migration, on the other hand, may result in skin necrosis as the migrated substance can cause blockage to the blood vessel.

Nausea and Flu

In some cases, patients who are intolerable of anesthetics may experience mild to moderate headaches and nausea after getting an anti-wrinkle treatment but these are normal incidents of the procedure’s downtimes. However, using cheap anti-wrinkle injections may lead to severe nausea, headache, dizziness, and flu-like symptoms. Thus, it is best to use brands from trusted providers.

Excessive Muscle Numbness

This happens when the anti-wrinkle injections used during the procedure contain harsh ingredients. Some cheap anti-wrinkle injections contain an overdosage of muscle relaxant that may adversely affect the muscles.

There were reported incidents of over-relaxed muscles that leads to sagging or drooping skin and muscle tissues. Some cases include severe drooling and the inability to sip drinks or swallow food.
