Wrinkle relaxers treatments in Perth have become an incredibly popular, sought after, and mainstream cosmetic procedure. For centuries, the pursuit of the “Fountain of Youth”, and the desire to slow or prevent aging, has been a driving force. As yet, these endeavours have failed to find a cure for aging, but therapies have been developed to slow the aging process. At the forefront of this, wrinkle relaxants therapies are very successful in slowing the appearance of aging.
Dynamic wrinkles are lines, folds or creases that are formed in the skin when the muscles contract. Over time, wrinkles can also develop due to loss of collagen and elastin in the skin, loss of subcutaneous fat, facial muscle and bone loss. Wrinkles can then appear at rest and are called static lines.
Wrinkle relaxants are very effective in reducing and even eliminating dynamic lines. Static lines cannot be eliminated by wrinkle relaxers therapies, but they can be softened and improved.
There is a lot of interest in wrinkle relaxers in Perth, and expectedly, prospective clients have a lot of questions regarding wrinkle relaxants. Below are some of the most commonly asked questions regarding wrinkle relaxers.
What is Wrinkle Relaxants Treatment?
Wrinkle relaxers are derived from a purified protein Botulinum Toxin 1, that acts to reduce the transmission of chemical signals between nerve endings and the adjacent muscle. This prevents the muscle contracting, so in turn, the overlying skin fails to crease. The results are not permanent, the muscle is weakened, not paralysed, and slowly over time, the muscle regains its strength of contraction.
Are wrinkle relaxers treatments painful?
Wrinkle relaxant therapies are associated with minimal pain. Clients may experience a slight stinging sensation at the site of injection, which is brief and usually mild. The wrinkle relaxants are administered through tiny diabetic needles, and ice or numbing cream may be administered if desired.
How long do Wrinkle Relaxers last?
Wrinkle relaxers Perth treatments take up to 10-14 days to take full effect. Each treatment is expected to last around three months. If a client is able to maintain regular three monthly wrinkle relaxant treatments, then over time, they should be able to get longer time out of each treatment.
What is the best age to start Wrinkle Relaxants therapies?
Clients between the ages of 25-45 are likely to get the most benefit from wrinkle relaxers. However, if a young client has either dynamic or static lines, they are a suitable candidate for wrinkle relaxers. Often young clients will use wrinkle relaxants as a means to prevent the development of wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles (caused by muscle contraction creasing the overlying skin) can be completely eliminated by wrinkle relaxers treatments. As you get older, static lines (lines that occur at rest) may develop. Static lines develop due to degradation of the skin structure, loss of collagen and elastin, and loss of volume. Wrinkle relaxants cannot eliminate static lines, they can only soften them. Wrinkle reklaxants are thus often seen better as a preventative therapy, rather than as a treatment of ingrained, established lines.
Are Wrinkle Relaxers safe?
Wrinkle relaxants have been safely used in cosmetic and aesthetic medicine since 1988. They have also been safely used in a myriad of other medical specialties for the treatment of many medical disorders including, cerebral palsy, atonic bladders, hyperhidrosis, migraine treatments, blepharospasm, and cervical dystonia.
