Anti Wrinkle Injections – Reduces Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Facial wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process. As the body ages, there is a significant decrease in the production of collagen and elastin, which are essential for keeping skin firm and smooth. As wrinkles begin to appear and worsen, they can cause you to look fatigued. In an attempt to maintain a youthful appearance and smooth fine lines, it is common to try a variety of over-the-counter creams and lotions.
Wrinkle relaxing injections almost instantly relax muscles and improve the appearance of your skin. Botox is the most common cosmetic treatment in the United States. There have been almost 5 million procedures done in the United States alone. Botox is a substantially purified toxin that is beneficial for reducing or eliminating a number of aging signs, such as vertical frown lines, horizontal forehead lines, crow’s feet, smoothing smokers lines that form around the mouth and lifting sagging mouth corners.
Botox wrinkle relaxing injections work in different ways on each part of the face. When it is used in the upper area of the face (the forehead and eye area), the injections are on or very close to the bone, but when it used further down the face, it penetrates deeper under the skin and it soaks close to half of an inch in each direction. Injections can be done in the neck and around the mouth, but it is important to find a cosmetic surgeon who is experienced injections in these areas.
There are several myths about the use of Botox, but when injections are done correctly, it does not affect the sensation causing nerves and will not make you feel numb. Botox like most injections can be slightly painful, especially in areas such as between the eyebrows, but the physician will offer a topical anesthesia if needed. The length of time this type of anti-aging procedure lasts is about four months.
There are typically no side effects resulting from a Botox treatment, but some people may experience mild side effects, such as bruising, swelling and redness. These side effects are only temporary and usually disappear in a few hours after the treatment. The length of time an injection lasts depends on a variety of things, such as the degree of wrinkles. When you visit the office that will provide your Botox injections, the doctor will explain to you in detail any risks that may be associated with an injection and how many treatments you may need and how long you will need to wait between treatments
