What is Anti-wrinkle muscle relaxing treatment?
Botulinum Toxin A (of which Botox® is a trade name) is a protein. Cosmetic use of Botulinum Toxin A was discovered by Dr J.Carruthers, a Canadian ophthalmologist in 1987. Botulinum Toxin A inhibits the ability of muscle to contract. Once injected, the results will last for a few months and then the muscle return to working normally. It has become one of the most popular treatments in cosmetic dermatology. Minetal research suggests that 1.25 million non-surgical treatments were done in 2010, with Botox being the most popular.
Dynamic wrinkles can be successfully treated with Botulinum Toxin A. However, many more people in their thirties want to use it preventatively, to stop them from ever getting pronounced wrinkles.
What can be treated?
Dynamic wrinkles can be successfully treated with a protein called Botulinum Toxin (of which Botox® is a trade name). It reversibly weakens the muscles responsible for dynamic wrinkles which are lines that appear when you animate your face.
Static wrinkles are lines that appear at rest, these do not usually improve with Botulinum Toxin A and may be best treated with Dermal Fillers, Skin Peel and Nanomesotherapy.
Forehead lines are horizontal wrinkles across the forehead.The main cause of deep forehead wrinkles is the natural aging process. These lines can be successfully treated by Botulinum injection.
Frown lines (Glabella lines)
Frown wrinkles are vertical wrinkles between eyebrows and can signal emotions such as anger, anxiety or fear. Static wrinkles are lines that appear at rest, may usually have minimum improvement with Botulinum.
Eye wrinkles (Crow’s feet)
Crow’s Feet wrinkles (Periorbital wrinkles) are in the outer corner of the eyes and appear more prominent when laughing or smiling.
Under-arm and forehead excessive sweating can be treated with Botulinum injections with excellent results which may last for up to 12 months.
