Botox Wrinkle Treatment Prevents New Skin from Wrinkling

The slow and steady development of facial wrinkles is an early sign of skin damage that accumulates and warns of aging. It does not matter that these are fine surface lines or whether they are deeper creases and folds. Also, wrinkling of the skin may become faster if exposed to the sun more than warranted and by the continuous use of tobacco products. A poor nutrition or skin disorders are also other known causes of wrinkling of the skin.

There are however, treatments available for facial wrinkles and these may be performed in an office setting that provides comfort, convenience, privacy as well as safety to the person wanting the therapy.

Paralyzes the Nerves and Prevents Muscles to Contract

The facial plastic surgeon will be sure to give the patient's health top priority and may combine therapy with minimally-invasive methods of applying other medications, as applicable. Forehead creases that are prominent, furrowed brows or lines beneath the eyes, known as crow's feet, can be effectively treated by minimizing the function of specific facial muscles.

Botox wrinkle treatment is a sterile, purified protein treatment used for curing wrinkles. Botox or botulinum toxin which is produced from bacteria called Clostridium botulinum is produced in a laboratory. Botox wrinkle treatment implies that Botox is injected in very small amounts into binds of the facial wrinkle of the nerve endings that supply muscle as well as prevents nerve impulses from reaching the muscles.

The Botox so injected weakens or paralyzes the muscle around the area that has been injected and can last for several months. Botox wrinkle treatment thus weakens or paralyzes the facial muscles temporarily and thus reduces or eliminates the prior creasing of the skin and also prevents new skin creasing.

Botox wrinkle treatment may take a few days before its effects become visible and the effects may usually last from three to six months in most individuals before the full muscle movement comes to fore again. When full muscle movement returns, it may be time to get further Botox wrinkle treatment, once again.

The Botox 10-minute facial wrinkle treatment is a very fast acting wrinkle removing method which rapidly replaces the collagen injections and Botox is a pure neurotoxin complex which may used to treat areas between the eyebrows as well as the forehead. With Botox wrinkle treatment there will be considerable improvement or disappearance of frown lines. Botox wrinkle treatment works by blocking the impulses from the nerves to the small facial muscles that affect the expression lines and by relaxing the muscles do not allow them to contract. After getting Botox wrinkle treatment, the overlying skin will stay smooth and wrinkle-free and the untreated facial muscles would contract normally and thus not affect normal facial expressions.
