Anti-wrinkle injections are used as muscle relaxers and are effective in revitalizing your complexion and smoothing out those sneaky wrinkles and lines. But, did you know that they can do a lot more than just that?
Anti-wrinkle injections are made up of active proteins that hinders the muscles’ activities when injected into the skin. The contraction of the muscles relaxes along with the skin, in turn, reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
Here are four other reasons to consider anti-wrinkle injections:
1. Calf contouring
If you have big calves due to muscle bulk, then muscle relaxers can help to reduce their size.
2. Jawline Contouring
If your jaw muscles or the masseter muscles are too strong, it can give your face a noticeable square-shaped and masculine looking face. Most women opt to have this treatment to relax the jaw muscles and give the face a more youthful triangular shape.
3. Hyperhidrosis or Excessive sweating
Hyperhidrosis is a condition caused by overactive sweat glands. People who suffered from this may have a hard time socializing and being confident due to excessive perspiration. Luckily, anti-wrinkle injections work by blocking excess nerve signals to the sweat glands and reducing sweat production.
Many of our patients, who have bruxism or experience teeth clenching during their sleep, come in for anti-wrinkle injections to shape their jaw and also stop grinding their teeth.
Results of these anti-wrinkle injectables show in two weeks and usually last between 3-6 months. This non-invasive treatment is safe to use and has minor side effects such as tiny bruising or swelling. It also has a cumulative effect, meaning you will need fewer injections over time. Lastly, it can be combined with dermal fillers for optimized results for face rejuvenation.
