Injections for Wrinkle Reduction
Injected Medications for Dynamic Wrinkle Reduction, Sweating Reduction and Migraines
Dermatologists can inject purified proteins through tiny needles to soften the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the face. Some wrinkles are caused by the movement of facial muscles and these proteins act by relaxing those muscles to soften or eliminate those facial lines. These medicines have become familiar to all of us through their steadily increasing medical use and numerous pop culture and media mentions.
Patients who have these injections look refreshed and relaxed, younger and less angry. Most patients return for maintenance treatments 2 or 3 times a year because they’re happy with the improvement in their appearance and how that makes them feel. No matter how expensive your anti-aging cream, these injectable medicines do better in limiting the facial lines that age etches in using the motion of your facial muscles. If you have facial wrinkles caused by muscle activity especially in your mid brow, your forehead, or in the crow’s feet areas beside your eyes, then injected dynamic wrinkle reduction medications might be the ideal solution to unlock your beauty. Call us today to book a personal consultation with one of our professionals.
In addition to their benefits in treatment of facial wrinkles, these medicines are also of significant benefit in the control of excessive sweating in the armpits, on the palms, and on the feet. People who suffer significant drenching sweats that stain their clothes, make them feel anxious in social situations or even limit their ability to shake hands can finally have relief from these embarrassing problems. These injections help dramatically, and continue to control sweating for many months.
Finally, when these proteins are injected in the right areas of the forehead, neck and scalp, chronic migraine sufferers can see a significant reduction in frequency and intensity of their headaches. Again, call us today to book a personal consultation with one of our doctors.
A brief history of Injectable Dynamic Wrinkle reducers
In the 1970s, ophthalmologists began to use these proteins to correct problems including twitches, spasms, and lazy eyes. Through the 1980’s doctors discovered many new uses for these medicines including the treatment of muscle spasm, tremors and cerebral palsy. The applications of this new treatment option grew throughout the 1980s, and in the early 1990s, two Canadian physicians (the Carruthers) began to take note of its startling cosmetic benefits. Dermatologists were instrumental in perfecting the art of injecting these proteins to help smooth wrinkles, shape and define the face to improve people’s appearances.
Despite the reason you seek treatment with these medicines, whether for wrinkle reduction, sweat reduction or migraine management, the procedure is quite simple. It involves the injection of a purified protein derived from a bacterium called Clostridium botulinum. The extract is safe and can’t make you sick. The medicine temporarily limits the ability of facial muscle fibers to contract just around the area where it is injected. Over a few months, the effect slowly diminishes. Millions of patients throughout the world have been safely and happily treated with these medications over the past 20 years. Call today to book a consultation with one of our doctors.
These medicines can be used in conjunction with other injectables such as Perlane® or Restylane®, Juvéderm®, Radiesse® or Sculptra® as well as being used with laser and light procedures to provide better results in smoothing and reshaping wrinkles than with fillers alone.
