In Perth wrinkle relaxers treatments have become a very popular, safe and the mainstay of anti-aging treatments.
Wrinkles are folds or creases of the skin, and are a natural part of aging. As people get older, the skin loses elasticity, becomes thinner and drier, and consequently, lines and creases start to appear. Initially the lines appear only as a result of facial expressions, (for example, frowning or smiling) and then disappear at rest. These are called dynamic lines. As the skin ages, it becomes less elastic, so its ability to spring back is diminished. Wrinkles become deeper, and more permanent, even at rest. These lines are called static lines, as they are no longer due to just muscle contraction, but also to loss of skin elasticity, hydration and volume. Dynamic lines can be successfully treated with wrinkle relaxants. Static lines can only be softened or reduced with wrinkle relaxers, not completely eliminated.
Sun damage, smoking, family genetics, skin colour,, some medications, levels of hydration, will all influence the rate at which individuals will develop wrinkles in their skin. Wrinkle relaxants are a popular therapy to reduce, eliminate, or prevent the development of facial wrinkles.
What are wrinkle relaxers?
Wrinkle relaxants are made from a highly purified protein derived from the Clostridium Botulinum bacteria. The bacteria itself is not injected, just a protein that replicates the action of the toxin. The wrinkle relaxers work by preventing the transmission of chemicals between the nerve endings, and the muscles, thereby temporarily preventing the muscle from contracting. This, in turn, stops the overlying skin from creasing, thus preventing the formation of wrinkles or creasing. Wrinkle relaxants are not permanent, as slowly the effect of the injection wears off, and the muscles regain the ability to contract.
Where can Wrinkle Relaxants be used?
Wrinkle relaxers can be used in several areas of the face to reduce, improve or eliminate facial wrinkles. These include:
In addition to reducing facial lines, wrinkle relaxers can also be used to improve facial aesthetics in a number of unique ways:
- Wrinkle relaxants can be injected into the masseters to reduce their size and thereby leading to an improved, slimline, and less square jaw. Wrinkle relaxers injections into the masseter muscle is also used to treat teeth grinding.
- Wrinkle relaxers can be injected into the muscles that pull down the corners of the mouth (Depressor Anguli Oris). In some people these muscles are very strong and cause a downturned curve to their mouth causing a ‘sad’ appearance. The use of wrinkle relaxants will stop this downturn, leading to a happier appearance.
- Wrinkle Relaxants can be used to create a ‘brow lift’. In some individuals, they may have heavy brows or droopy eyelids, and wish to raise the eyebrow opening up the eye area. Careful placement of wrinkle relaxers in the brow and around the eye, will open up the eye area, and produce a significant brow lift.
- Wrinkle relaxers can also be used to improve the appearance of the platysmal bands in the neck, helping to tighten up the skin of the neck, and also improve the contours of the jaw line.
Finally wrinkle relaxers in Perth can also be used to treat excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) of the skin (armpits, scalp, hands).
What do Wrinkle Relaxers treatments involve?
When you opt for a wrinkle relaxers perth treatment, you will be seen by a highly experienced and qualified Cosmetic Doctor, who will assess your face, and in close consultation with the client, will develop a tailored wrinkle relaxant treatment plan to achieve the objectives desired by the client.
The actual procedure is fairly quick and relatively painless. A small amount of the wrinkle relaxers is dissolved in saline and injected using tiny needles into the desired muscle. The patient may feel a stinging sensation, but this is relatively mild, and very temporary.
How long do Wrinkle Relaxant Therapies work?
Wrinkle Relaxers take up to two weeks to take full effect, but then generally last three to four months. Over time, if wrinkle relaxers are administered to the muscles regularly, patients will generally find that they will get longer out of their wrinkle relaxants therapies.
