The face and neck, over time, show age more vividly than other parts of the body. Much of this is due to the loss of fat and underlying subdermal tissue, leaving the skin stretched and sagging over time. Areas where the motion develops wrinkles and sags, like under the neck. Cosmetic neurotoxin applications can help reverse this aging effect, at least temporarily, for weeks. Some of the most practical applications have been eliminating wrinkles and physical signs of aging.
Where Do Neurotoxins Come from?
The neurotoxin cosmetics used for facial improvements come from botulinum toxin type A. It can interact with the body and directly affect the function of nerve cells. In the case of cosmetics, the application helps the facial muscles stop clamping and crunching, creating wrinkles on the outer skin layer. As the face relaxes, the wrinkles go away.
The short name for this product goes by Botox or Dysport. It’s interesting to note that neurotoxins are used in more than cosmetics. They have a strong track record for helping people suffering from chronic migraines.
How Does this Cosmetic Neurotoxin Apply?
Cosmetic neurotoxins are applied to the target area via injection. The application is inserted into the specific muscle area to trigger a reaction at the nerve level and create the desired effect as the neurotoxin spreads in the immediate area. They are commonly used on the forehead to erase worry lines, around the eyes to eliminate crow’s feet, and finally at the ends of the mouth to lessen smile lines.
We can apply a topical numbing cream to soothe the area if there is minor pain after the injection. In most cases, the application only takes a few minutes. If you feel pain in the injection areas, inform our office and ice the area to reduce swelling.
Although, most patients can go about regular life and activities within 10 to 20 minutes after a cosmetic session. Even better, the wrinkle treatment has a very immediate visual effect on wrinkles and crow’s feet.
