Our skin quality as we age gets worse and unpredictable. Fine lines and wrinkles appear, caused by the natural aging process and being in the sun. Muscle contractions like those used to smile, frown, or squint can also cause wrinkles and fine lines.
And over time, those lines and wrinkles can worsen by constantly contracting muscles. So, if you don’t like how your wrinkles look, it’s time to try one of the many wrinkle relaxer treatments out there.
Today, EC Medical Group will help you identify these wrinkle relaxers and how well you can treat those fine lines. Keep reading this blog post to know more.
How They Function
Neurotoxin injections work on wrinkles caused by a different thing than dermal filler injections. Crow’s feet, worry lines, and forehead wrinkles are caused by repeatedly making the same facial expressions, like squinting, frowning, smiling, and a million other things.
These “dynamic” wrinkles differ from lines caused by loss of volume, environmental damage, and the natural aging process. The way Injections work is to temporarily stop the muscles that cause wrinkles from moving.
Neurotoxin injections can also help delay the start of new dynamic wrinkles because they stop muscles from contracting. Many patients have used these as a preventive measure to prevent wrinkles before they get too deep into the skin. It also reduces the number and intensity of treatments they need later in life.
What To Expect
Patients and guests often say the injections feel like a tiny pinch because they are given with an excellent needle. After you tell the injector what you want to change about your appearance, they will look at your face and decides where the best injections should go.
The process takes between 10 and 15 minutes, but the injections only take a few seconds. After the procedure, you may feel pain, swelling, bruising, or redness, but you won’t need much time off.
Wrinkle Relaxers at EC Medical Group
Wrinkle Relaxer treatments are a simple office procedure that can help eliminate wrinkles on your forehead, between your eyes, and around your eyes (called “crow’s feet”). Neurotoxins weaken the muscles that make facial expressions for a short time. Once the treated muscles are weaker, the muscle pull loosens, making the skin smoother.
At EC Medical Group, our injectors use toxin injections to smooth out wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes and give the face a more rested, youthful look. Our injection specialists are trained and have the experience to provide results that look natural and keep your face’s ability to show emotion.
Neurotoxin injections are one of the world’s most popular and safest cosmetic procedures. However, to get the desired results, you need a skilled injector who knows how much product to use and where to put it to address your specific concern.
In practice, the different brand-name products are very similar. However, each is made differently, which may make one better for your needs. At ECMG, we have BOTOX, Dysport®, and Xeomin®, and we’re happy to help you determine which is right for you. Let’s dig in and see how each treatment works.
If you want to eliminate wrinkles on your forehead, between your eyes, and around your eyes (called “crow’s feet”), you might be a good candidate for Botox Cosmetic. Botox works by making the facial muscles that make expressions weaker. Once the muscles have been treated to make them more ineffective, the muscles no longer pull as hard, and the skin flattens.
Botulinum toxin types A, the main ingredient in Botox and Dysport, is also the main ingredient in Xeomin. The main difference is that Xeomin is a “naked” neurotoxin, which means that the botulinum molecules don’t have any buffer proteins around them as they do in Botox and Dysport.
And since Xeomin doesn’t need the buffer proteins, it can move through the muscles faster than other neurotoxins. The great thing about this wrinkle relaxer is that it can also see results more quickly with Xeomin than with Botox.
Microneedling is a cutting-edge anti-aging treatment that can improve the look of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, uneven texture, and dull skin tones.
In April 2009, the FDA approved Dysport, similar to Botox, which can temporarily smooth out wrinkles on the upper face. Dysport is new to the U.S. but has been used in other parts of the world for many years.
Dysport works by relaxing facial muscles for a short time. As mentioned above, botulinum toxin type A, which is the same thing as Botox, is also used to make it. Like Botox, it tends to work best on wrinkles caused by the muscles that cause lines around the eyes, forehead, and mouth when you make a face.
Are Wrinkle Relaxers Worthy?
Yes, wrinkle relaxers are worth it. Wrinkle relaxers are a good investment for people who want to improve their looks and feel better about themselves. They can help reduce the look of wrinkles and fine lines quickly and easily, especially in places like the forehead, around the eyes, and between the eyebrows.
With little to no downtime and treatments that aren’t too painful, wrinkle relaxers can be a good choice for people who are always on the go. Also, because the treatment only lasts for a short time, people can try it out and see if it works for them without making a long-term commitment. Ultimately, a person’s decision to use wrinkle relaxers will depend on their goals and preferences about their appearance.
Candidates Of course, not everyone can use wrinkle relaxers, just like they can’t all use other beauty treatments. Some people might not be good candidates for the treatment because they have allergies or other health problems. Others may want to let nature take its course and see their wrinkles as signs of wisdom and experience.
The best person for wrinkle relaxers is in good health overall and has moderate to severe wrinkles or fine lines in the areas where the product is usually used. They should know what to expect, be willing to get regular treatments, and not have health problems that could worsen the procedure’s risks.
