There’s a myriad of myths around this treatment. Horror stories in tabloid mags, celebrities who’ve taken treatments too far or devilish doctors with no ethics. But wrinkle relaxing injections are in fact one of the safest solutions to making yourself feel better about the way you look.
A purified protein called clostridium botulinum is a quick fix for lines and wrinkles that doctors have been using for decades. It’s perfectly safe to use in moderation and can provide you with newfound confidence.
Want to know more? Here are some interesting facts we bet you didn’t know about wrinkle relaxing injections.
Clostridium botulinum is known for treating frown lines, crow’s feet and other wrinkles. But, it can also treat underlying muscular conditions like neck spasms, eye twitching, lazy eyes, overactive bladder, excessive sweating and even some neurological conditions like cerebral palsy.
Wrinkle relaxing injections are widely confused with dermal fillers. Dermal fillers treat the skin and it’s aesthetic, whereas wrinkle relaxers target your muscles.
The doctor will assess which muscles are causing lines and wrinkles and targets them by injecting clostridium botulinum into them. This freezes the offending muscles and stops them from creating any more lines or wrinkles while lessening the existing ones too.
A wrinkle relaxing injection is probably one of the fastest cosmetic procedures there is. It’s so fast that you can get it done on your lunch break from work. There’s very little to no downtime required so that you can go about your daily business as usual immediately after your treatment.
Many people think for one reason or another that clostridium botulinum injections are unsafe because it involves pumping foreign matter into your system. The truth is, as long as you’re being treated by a certified professional, you’ll be fine.
There is no evidence to suggest that lines and wrinkles will reappear even worse after your treatment with wrinkle relaxers. You can, if you think appropriate, return for more treatment as many times as you like.
Like we mentioned before, clostridium botulinum doesn’t just serve an aesthetic purpose. You can effectively lessen pain from migraines using it too.
As well as relieving symptoms of chronic migraines like sickness, nausea or light sensitivity, Clostridium botulinum can also lessen your pain altogether. By targeting nerve cells, it can freeze the channels in which pain signals are sent to your brain, giving your body the impression that you’re not in any pain at all.
