Anti-wrinkle injections are a protein that acts to prevent the contraction of muscles. It is this contraction of muscle fibers that causes wrinkles to appear. By blocking this contraction, Anti-wrinkle injection softens fine lines and wrinkles.
The Anti-wrinkle injections is administered by way of a fine injection. This involves a mild degree of discomfort which is fleeting. Several adjuncts can be used to minimize discomfort, ranging from ice packs to vibration pens, but these are unnecessary for most individuals
The whole procedure takes about five minutes, and you are free to continue with the rest of the day barring a few precautions
The injections are targetted at the forehead muscle (frontalis), the area in between the eyebrows (glabellar complex), and around the eyes or crows feet (obicularis oculi muscle)
While Anti-wrinkle injections are safe and noninvasive in many cases, you still need to prepare before the procedure. Although depending on your health and condition, your steps might vary, most patients just need to take care of a few things:
Anti-wrinkle injection are a minimally invasive procedure and as such the recovery is very quick. There are just a few things to remember following the treatment.
The likelihood of Anti-wrinkle injections not having a lasting effect is very small. There are, however, a very small subset of patients that fail to gain a lasting effect. They will typically gain an initial response and then see the effects wear off within a few weeks.
The reasons for this are poorly understood. One popular theory is the involvement of the body's immune system and the role of antibodies at the site of anti- wrinkle injections. These can be preformed or acquired.
The acquisition of these antibodies has been related to short intervals between dosing. As a result, it is advisable to wait at least 4 months between visits to get your botox treatment
