Anti-wrinkle injections have revolutionised how skin ageing is treated today. They have become one of the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedures that are performed these days. These injections help to relax the muscles that cause the face to wrinkle. Anti-wrinkle injections are safe, effective and are unparalleled for the treatment of the facial wrinkles in the upper part like lines on forehead, frown lines and crow's feet. The results show a young and fresh skin which can be obtained within 2 weeks. The results can last up to 6 months.
How do the injections take effect?
Tiny injections are pushed directly into the muscles, which results in temporary relaxation of the facial muscles. Thus the formation of wrinkles is prevented. The anti-wrinkle injections can be used for prevention as well as treatments. The wrinkles are smoothed by halting the physical movements like squinting. Thus they prevent the wrinkles from forming as well. A fine needle is used for the process. So most of the patients would feel mild and temporary discomfort and the treatment would be completed within a few minutes. You can carry on with the day's activities after the procedure is completed.
What is Botox?
Botulinum Toxin Type A or Botox is a purified protein that can prevent lines and wrinkles for about 6 months by relaxing the facial muscles. It is an original and one of the most profound wrinkle treatments, that is affordable and offers fast results. Botox has been tested extensively and verified and has been used for decades.
How is Botox different from an anti-wrinkle injection?
There is no difference between Botox and an anti-wrinkle injection. Botox is one of the 'anti-wrinkle injectables'. It offers one of the most effective solutions for reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
How long will the effects of Botox last?
The effects of Botox generally lasts for 6 months. However, with ongoing treatment, the treatments can last much longer.
Would Botox hurt?
The Botox injections do not hurt much. The injections are small and would feel like an ant bite, lasting for only a few seconds.
What could go wrong with Botox?
The possible side effects of Botox injections are generally temporary. On top of that, they would be restricted to the injection site. These include bruising, face pain, headache, drooping of the eyelids, swelling at the injection site, redness, muscle weakness, skin tightness, a feeling of pricking pins, numbness and nausea. The effects of the toxins can spread away from the injection site in rare cases with more serious side-effects like issues with speaking, swallowing, breathing due to the weakening of associated muscles which might be severe in some cases where larger doses of Botox has been administered, like in the treatments of spasticity.
Is Botox good as a preventive measure?
The smoothing properties of Botox have been used far and wide. It is true that Botox can prevent wrinkles from appearing by relaxing the muscles. However, using Botox or fillers at early ages should be avoided.
Consultation with the doctor would offer more knowledge on the subject.
