WRINKLE RELAXING INJECTIONS

WRINKLE RELAXING INJECTIONS

Cosmetic procedures for erasing wrinkles, plumping up lines and lost contours using various injectable products are available at Lesprit Medical Clinic because they are easy, quick acting, and give great results with minimal downtime. The wrinkles will “rest” for 3 to 6 months until the body returns the muscle function to normal, while all other areas of the face remain untouched.

Commonly known as Botulinum Toxin A injections, they are currently the most popular cosmetic procedure performed worldwide. This de-nerving agent works by blocking nerve impulses and relaxing the muscles, which results in improvement of frown lines, wrinkles and facial contours, thus creating the more relaxed appearance.

A single treatment with wrinkle relaxing injections can dramatically soften facial expression lines leaving you looking younger and more refreshed.

USES

Wrinkle relaxing injections work best in the upper part of the face and neck by:

  • Erasing frown lines between the eyebrows
  • Smoothing horizontal bands of wrinkles across the forehead
  • Raising of one or both eyebrows
  • Smoothing lines on sides of nose
  • Slimming of the jawline
  • Elevating the tip of the nose
  • Lifting the corners of the mouth
  • Smoothing of vertical and horizontal necklines by relaxing the platysmal bands (neck) muscles.

Used for decades in neurology and ophthalmology Botulinum Toxin A injections may also be useful for migraine headaches, excessive sweating, and eye and neck muscle spasms.

SIDE EFFECTS

The injection, performed in a medical practice, causes slight discomfort with rare side effects. At times, bruising and mild swelling can occur, which lasts up to ten days. Other rare adverse effects such as drooping of the brow and eyelids those are fully reversible and last only few weeks. You can return to work or your daily activities right away.

THE RESULTS

Effects are usually seen within a few days and reach maximum benefit by fourteen days following injection, and retouching may be necessary. Although individual results vary, the results achieved from a single treatment usually last three to six months.

The effects of wrinkle relaxing injections are not permanent solution for troublesome wrinkles and you will notice a gradual fading of the effects. To maintain the effects, treatments are usually required two to three times a year. Currently wrinkle relaxing injections have been used safely for over twenty years worldwide and their acceptable safety in long-term treatment has been well established.
