Loosen Up Those Facial Muscles
Wrinkle injection treatment, also known as Anti-Wrinkle injections or injectables, and more commonly known as Botox, is a type of non-surgical facial treatment that relaxes overactive muscles in the facial regions. It is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic treatments in the world. It consists of injecting a Botox directly into overactive facial muscles through a fine needle. Botox causes the muscle to relax. This allows the skin surface to have a more relaxed feel as well, diminishing fine lines and deep contours created by the overactive muscle.
Since Botox is directly injected into a facial muscle, there might be a slight stinging sensation. Therefore, we apply an anaesthetic ointment to the intended area about 15 minutes before the treatment to ensure a comfortable experience. A single session will last between 15 to 30 minutes. If there is any bruising or swelling afterwards, you can expect it to heal within a couple of days. About 2 to 14 days after the session, the treatment will take effect, with the results lasting between 4 and 6 months afterwards. Botox can also be combined with dermal filler injections to address deep wrinkles.
Botulinum toxin (Botox) is a neurotoxic protein that can be injected into muscles to force them into a more relaxed state. This toxin degenerates nerve tissue in the injected muscle, making it more relaxed and releasing tension. Botulinum toxin comes in 7 main types, with type A and B being used for medical reasons. This type of toxin is also used to treat muscle spasms, forcing a muscle into a state of flaccid paralysis. With facial muscles, such a flaccid state will result in a smoother and more youthful appearance on the treated area.
Our faces are the most expressive parts of our bodies. Therefore, facial muscles work overtime to keep up with different expressions such as laughter, mouth movement when talking, anger, and all the rest. Having an overactive facial muscle can cause a wrinkle or a line to become visible and prominent on your face. Through Botox, you can induce flaccid paralysis for that facial muscle, causing it to become relaxed and decrease the prominence of the wrinkle or line that it caused. This treatment is safe and used worldwide. Therefore, you can have the assurance that wrinkle injections can work for you too.
