One of the easiest and most effective ways to remove wrinkles from the skin is through Botox injections. This helps to restore your skin’s original outlook. The treatment has been in use for decades now, and has been refined over the years to make sure it is safe for use. The main reason people get Botox is to remove wrinkles around the face and creases that form around the eyes and nose. Such wrinkles make the face lose its lovely look; which is why many people seek anti-wrinkle treatment to avoid this.
How Botox works
Normally, skin cells are supposed to stretch in order to accommodate facial movements such as smiling and frowning. With age though, skin cells become less stiff and can’t stretch. This causes wrinkles to appear. Over time, these wrinkles become permanent, showing even when there isn’t any facial movement.
Botox works to inhibit facial movement, stopping further formation of wrinkles on the skin, and also reducing the existing ones. The injections contain a protein that blocks brain signals to the face muscles which lead to the formation of wrinkles. By reducing facial movements, you prevent formation of wrinkles on the face and even reduce creases formed by past wrinkles.
How Botox is done
The procedure is done by a qualified cosmetic surgeon who will inject the treatment just beneath your skin’s uppermost layer. To note which areas to inject, you will be asked to make various facial movements such as frowning or smiling. Once the surgeon understands how your muscles move, the suitable areas will be injected with the treatment. These are very small injections aimed only at the upper section of your skin and it will only feel like a small pinch but not painful at all.
You will notice the effects of the treatment soon afterwards, perhaps even the following day; but maximum results may take up to 10 days. The effect of this treatment usually lasts around 3 – 4 months if done once, after which your face muscles revert to their previous condition. To ensure maximum effectiveness, it is recommended that you visit the cosmetic surgeon regularly for a repeat of the process, ensuring your skin’s condition remains the same.
Where and When To Use Anti-Aging Injections
This treatment is most commonly used around the face to remove wrinkles and creases; these can be around the forehead, brows and eyes. However, it can also be used on the underarms to alleviate hyperhidrosis which causes excessive sweating. These multiple uses make the treatment recommendable for overall use.
Both men and women can make use of this treatment because it is so subtle and doesn’t show any pronounced effects. Wrinkles and creases are common among the older demographic due to the skin’s loss of elasticity with age, and this treatment can be used to remove such wrinkles. On the other hand, Botox can be used even before the wrinkles start to show by young adults, preventing the development of the problem in the first place.
Why Anti-Wrinkle Injections
Other than just removing and reducing depth of wrinkles and creases, these injections also restore your skin volume back to its original quality. It also helps restore the fullness of the lips, making them plump and supple, as well as reshaping the nose and chin. This all-rounded benefits make it favorable for all skin work.
This is also a very subtle procedure that does not cause any drastic changes on your face. Instead, it makes the effect on your skin as natural as possible and hardly noticeable by your friends and those around you.
However, the main reason anti-wrinkle treatments are gaining popularity is because of their safety and effectiveness. There are plenty of creams and lotions in the market nowadays that claim to remove wrinkles, but they are not as effective as these injections. Plus, this process is done by a professional who is trained to deliver a safe procedure unlike other treatments which are not fully tested.
