Early in the 1980’s Anti Wrinkle Injections were officially used for the first time in humans to treat crossed eyes, a condition in which the eyes are not properly aligned with each other, and uncontrollable blinking. This made it the first Anti Wrinkle Injection type A product to be approved in the world.

Today, some of the medical conditions that can be treated with Anti Wrinkle Injections are:

  • Excessive blinking
  • Cervical dystonia – abnormal head position and neck pain
  • Hyperhidrosis – abnormally increased sweating
  • Squints
  • Migraine and other headache disorders
  • Bruxism – this condition is otherwise known as excessive clenching and grinding of teeth. It can result in tension headaches, a thickened jawline and tooth damage
  • urge urinary incontinence

Anti Wrinkle Injection is now also a common treatment for muscles affected by the upper motor neuron syndrome such as cerebral palsy and disorders of the central nervous system.

While treating these and other medical conditions, the aesthetic benefits of botox was discovered and it was approved for its cosmetic uses in 2002 for the temporary improvement of glabellar lines (frown lines), in adults. By 2007, it was the most common cosmetic procedure being performed.

Due to the surge in popularity of Anti Wrinkle Injections and Fillers, the number of unqualified and insufficiently trained injectors rose as did the amount patients suffering from unwanted and disfiguring side effects. This led to much tighter regulations regarding the prescription and administration of the drug.

Anti Wrinkle Injections is to be administered by either the doctor, or a nurse acting under the supervision and instruction of a doctor, and in accordance with a written order provided by the doctor.
