Start Your Year Right With Muscle Relaxing Injections
With New Year around the corner, many of us are now looking to the coming twelve months; what they will bring and more importantly what positive changes will we make to our own lives. For some men and women, improving their appearance – whether that be getting fit or getting cosmetic treatment – might be on the New Year agenda, and it’s not uncommon for a rise in patients seeking to improve is the look of their ageing skin come January. Muscle relaxing injections can offer a solution to lines and wrinkles, but what are muscle relaxing injections specifically, and what can they offer you?
Muscle relaxing injections are a type of non-surgical cosmetic treatment that aim to improve the look of lines and wrinkles of the skin, whilst also preventing the formation of more signs of ageing, which is unique to this treatment. Muscle relaxing injections, such as Botox, are injectable substances that essentially paralyse the facial muscles in order to provide an effective defence against lines and wrinkles developing further. Muscle relaxing injections help to reduce the signs of ageing (due to a combination on overuse of facial muscles and a decline in collagen production that lead to lines and wrinkles forming) by stopping the muscles from moving and allowing creases to form in the skin.
Many of us overuse our facial muscles on a daily basis in order to perform daily tasks such as talking, eating and conveying emotion, but this often means the skin is wrinkled in order to mould to the shaped the facial muscle are creating – therefore putting a strain on the skin. This isn’t so much of an issue in our youth, as high levels of collagen within our skin mean our tissue elasticity can bounce back, but this changes as we enter our early thirties, and the body’s natural collagen production begins to slow down, leaving us with more fragile skin that is more prone to lines and wrinkles.
Simply put? Muscle relaxing injections basically make it virtually impossible for the facial muscles to put the skin under the strain that can lead to lines and wrinkles. Quick, painless and effective, it’s not hard to see why so many patients all over the world choose muscle relaxing injection like Botox.
