Your body is your temple and the way you maintain it portrays your love and appreciation for yourself, which is why people consciously take care of their bodies with the aid of healthy habits, medication, non-surgical cosmetic procedures and cosmetic surgeries. A healthy body and mind also play a positive role in your life. Although many of us live by the popular saying “never judge a book by its cover,” it is essentially our appearance that creates the first and lasting impression on people we meet. Our current lifestyle ends up being a hindrance to the healthy life we wish to live and this, in turn, affects the way we look by making us look a lot older than we actually are. Not to forget, all of us are racing against time and eventually, the lines of wisdom catch up with us as we age. These are just a few of the many reasons why people make use of popular facial rejuvenation techniques such as Botox, anti-wrinkle treatment, Wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers to restore their youth and attain flawless skin that radiates glow.
How wrinkle relaxers work- two for the price of one.
The anti-wrinkle treatment or Wrinkle Relaxers are forms of cosmetic surgery that have been around for more than 20 years. It uses a natural protein extract from a naturally occurring Botulinum Type A toxin medically known as Onabotulinumtoxin A. It is a neurotoxic protein produced by bacteria. It is generally well tolerated when administered in small amounts as required for cosmetic use. A minute amount of wrinkle relaxer is injected into the muscles around the affected area, thus allowing these muscles to relax. The injected natural protein extract kicks in 2-3 days after the treatment. The lines and wrinkles around and in the treated area will soften and “disappear”, making you look a lot younger and graceful. This instant non-surgical process still allows untreated muscles to display your usual range of facial expressions while being particularly effective in reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles in the injected area. Naturally, it is impossible to defy time and the effect starts to wear off after approximately 3-4 months after the treatment and the wrinkles and lines naturally reappear with muscle activity. Like any other cosmetic medical treatment, there exists a risk of occasional side effects such as bruising, swelling or redness at the injected site.
Advantages of the Wrinkle Relaxing Treatment
The wrinkle relaxing treatment has quite a few advantages, a few of them are:
- Rapid results: The results are evident just a couple of days after the first treatment. The full effect would show only after 2 weeks following the treatment. This process is considered a faster than other conventional methods.
- Long lasting effects: Though the results differ from person to person, the results generally last for nearly 3-4 months. With regular follow up treatment sessions, the outcome of the Wrinkle Relaxer session last longer each time.
- Simple and fast procedure: It is a swift process that requires no more than 10-20 minutes while administering the protein micro-injections during each treatment session.
Today, Botox is no longer merely a beauty treatment. It is now used to treat as many as 20 health conditions. Wrinkle relaxers happen to be used for purposes other than merely being used for actually relaxing the muscles associated with wrinkles. In the present day, wrinkle relaxers have become increasingly popular to treat Hyperhidrosis, headaches and migraines. Most people in get the wrinkle relaxing treatment done just to reduce excessive sweating and prolong the time between blow dry appointments.
Treating Hyperhidrosis using Wrinkle Relaxers
Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition that affects both men and women alike. It causes excessive sweating of the underarms, palms or soles of the feet. This forces people to change their clothes frequently which in turn alters their levels of confidence and limits their social and work life. Serious practical consequences experienced by people suffering from this disorder are tasks as simple as holding a pen or shaking hands. This condition is treated with the use of small Botox injections which are injected under the skin of the armpit. The injections block the connection between the nerve and local sweat gland causing a reduction in the area that is injected. This treatment proves to be effective and lasts up to six months. If you are someone suffering from Hyperhidrosis, this is an effective treatment to do away with the embarrassment.
Treating Migraines using Wrinkle Relaxers
Migraine attacks are attributed to allergies, light or stress cause immense and throbbing pain that prolong for hours to days. Sometimes they are so severe that the pain can be disabling and proves to be a hindrance to your routine. This is also accompanied by flashes of light, blind spots or a tingling sensation on one side of the face, arm or leg.
Botox is considered to be a preventive measure rather than an abortive one. It can be used as an alternative to using medication for migraines. Botox works by blocking out nerve impulses responsible for controlling muscles, thereby, it causes the treated area to relax while getting rid of the pain. This method is successful at reducing or sometimes even eliminating a headache for many patients, but again, it varies from person to person. The treatment lasts up to 30 minutes and patients are normally administered 10-25 injections in the head, neck and shoulders. Botox is known to have evidently lesser side effects than other traditional headache medications. It may take up to a few weeks before the relief is noticeable. It is of great advantage to people suffering from chronic migraines with regular treatment every few months.
