Overtime lines may develop on your face because of many factors, such as ageing, sun exposure, dehydration, smoking, gravity and poor nutrition. They are even created by your own facial expressions due to constantly contracting from laughing and smiling. The purpose of anti-wrinkle injections is to offer you non-surgical and minimally invasive solutions to help you improve and maintain the appearance of your skin. This anti-wrinkle reduction procedure works best for wrinkles caused by muscle overactivity such as forehead creases, frown lines and crow’s feet. This is the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment in the world. In 2014 alone, more than 5 million Americans received this simple yet remarkable treatment.
The injections temporarily reduce and eliminate your wrinkles by blocking the nerve impulses to the muscles that cause wrinkles and creases. With the process only taking 30 minutes, you can carry on with your daily activities right after the procedure.
A small pin-prick sensation can be felt with each injection, but with the needles being so small pain is usually minimal. You will be surprised at how quick and easy the treatment is.
When wrinkle relaxants are given by a medical professional, complications are few and far between. When the treatment begins to take effect, you may feel a temporary numbness at the targeted area. Occasionally patients report minor headaches after the treatment however, these generally fade within 24 hours. Other potential side effects include an itching sensation, redness, swelling or bruising at the area of infection.
This will differ from person to person, but patients can expect to have a result that lasts between 3 to 6 months.
