4 Top Reasons Why People Have Anti-Wrinkle Injections

In the past 5 years, the popularity of muscle relaxants has skyrocketed.  According to the latest figures from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), there has been a 40.6 percent increase in these injections with a 5.1 percent rise since 2017. Last year, over 1.5 million muscle relaxant procedures were carried out.

Researchers at North Western University have investigated why  patients undergo this particular  treatment. The team recruited 511 patients seeking medical cosmetic surgical procedures. Of the participants, over 86 percent were women, and 56 percent were at least 45 years of age. Most respondents were college-educated. 

Below are the top 4 reasons: 

Reason No.1: Emotional

Almost 70% of the respondents said they wanted to improve their psychological well-being by appearing more attractive, motivated by a yearning for happiness or to feel more confident. 

Reason No 2: Occasional

Around 61 percent wanted to treat themselves or celebrate an occasion - an upcoming wedding or birthday party. 

Reason No. 3: Professional

Almost 59 percent wanted to improve their looks professionally to gain advantage in the job market. 

Reason No. 4: Physical

A further 53 percent underwent the treatments to  prevent symptoms of physical conditions. The jabs can be used to treat conditions such as cervical dystonia, where the neck and muscles contract, as well as lazy eye, chronic migraines, bladder dysfunction, eye twitching and excessive sweating.
