Face mimic wrinkles
The appearance of wrinkles is a natural consequence of the passage of time. The pace of wrinkle development is individual: depends on the lifestyle, facial expression, skin care and genetic background. Some people consider wrinkles as an important reflection of the character, temper and life experience of a person. But not everyone is proud of his or her wrinkles and, therefore, those who wish to keep their skin smooth and young can take benefit of treatments offered by the aesthetic medicine. Face and neck muscle relaxation with botox is considered as one of the least-invasive methods that provide almost immediate results.
The correction of facial wrinkles with botox is a procedure that is typically painless, requiring no anesthesia. The substance paralyses neuromuscular junctions, causing muscle relaxation and preventing contraction. As a result, skin that has been so treated does not wrinkle. Existing wrinkles (including deep ones, such as the one between the eyebrows) get smoothened. Also, the application of botox can eliminate wrinkles around eyes, on the forehead or on the nose.
Many patients are concerned that botox injections can produce the ‘mask effect’: the emotionless appearance of the face. It is important to note that botox acts only on the muscles in which it has been injected. The remaining muscles function normally, leaving natural face expression.
The first results of the procedures show up after just a few days. Botox acts for 3-6 months, depending on the individual condition of the patient. After that time, skin will stay smooth for some time and wrinkles will be less prominent than before the treatment. If the procedure is repeated, the result will last longer.
