Correction of mimic wrinkles with botulinum toxin
Your facial muscles work every time you laugh, frown, or squint in bright light. The muscle fibers contract intensively, stretching and compressing the skin. With age, the elasticity of the epidermis decreases, so individual skin folds become more visible.
Then a moment comes when part of the muscle tissue enters a state of constant tension, and the folds of the skin above them are no longer smoothed out. This is how mimic wrinkles are formed. With a large number of facial wrinkles, the face begins to seem frowned (or surprised), even if you are completely relaxed, which undoubtedly adds extra years. The essence of the action of the drugs is expressed in the temporary relaxation of certain groups of facial muscles. By their action, they block the nerve endings, not allowing "grimace".
Freed from intense contractions and stretches, skin cells begin to gradually regenerate. As a result, mimic wrinkles are smoothed out, the face looks younger and often even kinder!
Botulinum toxin is a naturally occurring substance produced by the microorganism CI. Botulinum. A partially inactivated and purified product is used in modern cosmetology to eliminate expression wrinkles. Botulinum toxin molecules block neuromuscular impulse transmission, so the treated facial muscle temporarily stops contracting, which means - down with wrinkles around the eyes, mouth and forehead.
Relaxation of the muscles not only prevents the formation of new folds, but also helps to smooth out existing wrinkles, renew the skin, and improve its appearance. Botulinum therapy has a pronounced effect in the presence of deep glabellar folds, crow's feet, wrinkles on the forehead and in the lips.
After 4-6 months. after the procedure, the contractility of the facial muscles is restored, therefore, Botox injections must be repeated. Regular use of botulinum toxin significantly lengthens the period of exposure of the drug to the muscles of the face, therefore, over time, it is sufficient to perform the procedure no more than once a year.
Effects of botox therapy
1. Smooth out eyebrow folds
2. Eliminate expression lines around the eyes
3. Remove folds in the forehead area
4. Improves neck skin condition
5. Reduces or smoothes wrinkles in the mouth area
6. Eliminates excessive sweating
Scientists confirm that the use of botulinum toxin for cosmetic purposes not only smoothes existing wrinkles, but also prevents the formation of new ones. After injection of the drug, the depth of folds on the skin is significantly reduced or they disappear altogether, and the person loses the ability to wrinkle, which reduces the likelihood of wrinkles. The effect lasts for a long time, regardless of the frequency of repeated manipulations.
