Everything You Need To Know About Wrinkle Relaxing Injections

There are steps you can take to target wrinkles that may have formed on your face over time. This is possible through the use of wrinkle-relaxing injections, more commonly known as Botox.

Much as they have with dermal fillers, many have questioned the validity and effectiveness of this treatment. However, I can say with the utmost confidence that as long as your chosen practitioner is qualified and skilled, you shouldn't face any issues.

Read on to learn more about why you might find yourself in need of wrinkle-relaxing injections and what they entail. 



Why is My Skin in Need of Wrinkle Relaxing Injections?

Wrinkle-relaxing injections help to smooth the lines that form as a result of repeated facial expressions. When we express emotions over the course of our lives, our skin usually snaps back into place without any issues.

As we age, this becomes increasingly tricky. When our skin loses two essential proteins – collagen and elastin, it becomes less springy and supple, creating the perfect conditions for wrinkles to appear.

When these wrinkles are smoothed out, it can completely change how you feel about yourself. After all, everyone deserves to feel happy and confident when they look in the mirror.

What Exactly Are Wrinkle Relaxing Injections?

Wrinkle-relaxing injections are minimally invasive treatments that I use to treat deep lines and wrinkles, particularly in those over 40. However, they can also be used as a preventative measure for those who are just starting to experience the visible signs of ageing.

At Appearance Based Medicine, I use Botox® by Allergan to treat my patients. It offers a safe and effective way to reduce the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles. Botox® is a trademarked amalgam of the words ‘botulinum toxin’ – the purified substance that is used to block nerve signals to the muscles that create fine lines and wrinkles. 

Botulinum toxin has also been proven to help those who suffer from hyperhidrosis, also known as excessive sweating. This incredibly useful substance has the potential to change your life and enable you to freely go about your daily activities.

More About Botulinum Toxin

Despite being a popular treatment option, many people don’t know that much about botulinum toxin. In the late 1980s, Canadian Ophthalmologist, Dr. Jean Carruthers realized that the substance could be used for treating much more than eye spasms.

Her accidental discovery resulted in the restoration of the confidence of millions of people across the world.

If you’re eager to turn back the clock and smooth out your wrinkles, I highly recommend Botox injections.
