Botulinum Toxin for wrinkles is a good and safe medicine to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles. Botulinum Toxin is used for several disorders in the field of medicine, particularly in dermatology, for cosmetic purposes.
Botulinum Toxin – What Is It?
Botulinum Toxin is a neurotoxin generated from Clostridium botulinum. Botulinum toxin injections are used for improving the appearance of wrinkles on the face, including:
- Vertical or frown lines between the eyebrows
- Forehead (worry lines)
- Crow’s Feet
- Bunny lines on the nose
- Creases around the lips/corners of the mouth
How Does Botulinum Toxin for Wrinkles Work?
Once injected into the muscle, it blocks the signals from the nerves that go to the muscles. Hence, when the nerve impulse no longer reaches the muscle, it prevents the muscle from contracting or tightening. This further causes the muscles to relax and weaken. It softens the overlying skin and causes the wrinkles to disappear. When the wrinkles soften, it gives you smoother and youthful skin.
The procedure is relatively straightforward and quick. It doesn’t require anesthesia. Our qualified medical professional uses a small-sized needle to inject Botulinum Toxin into the targeted muscles of the face. The procedure is pain-free with only minor discomfort.
It takes roughly five minutes to complete the procedure. However, the timeframe can vary depending on:
- The number of injections administered
- The size of the targeted area
- The specific muscle strength
Botulinum Toxin can significantly reduce the appearance of moderate to severe or dynamic wrinkles that appear when you smile or make a face.
