What is Wrinkle Relaxation?
Wrinkle relaxation involves using a naturally occurring protein, extracted from certain microbes, and administering it into the muscles, beneath the wrinkled skin. These natural substances make the muscles relax, thus, smoothening the overlying skin.
How does Wrinkle Relaxation Therapy remove wrinkles?
Wrinkle relaxation therapy leads to relaxation of certain muscles by blocking the associated nerves. Nerve endings meet the muscle cells at a junction to release acetylcholine (a neurotransmitter). Acetylcholine binds to the receptors present in the muscle cells and causes the muscle cells to contract. The therapy prevents the release of acetylcholine, in turn preventing the contraction of muscle cells. It causes a reduction in muscle contraction, allowing the muscles to become flexible.
Who should opt for Wrinkle Relaxation therapy?
Anyone, who wishes to look young, can use wrinkle relaxation therapy. Years of exposure to the harmful UV rays from the sun and collagen and elastin breakdown in the skin can form fine lines around the eyes and mouth. The wrinkle relaxation therapy helps reduce these lines, as well as other lines including forehead lines, crow’s feet lines, and frown lines between the eyebrows.
How Wrinkle Relaxation Therapy is better than others?
- It is a quick, safe and proven solution for many skin problems.
- The results are obtained in a short time.
- It is completely safe at its FDA-approved dosage.
- It involves a minimally invasive method.
- It doesn’t require anaesthesia or incisions of any kind.
- The recovery time is minimal.
Is there any preparation required for Wrinkle Relaxation therapy?
Apart from the assessment, of the area to be treated, there is no pre-procedure patient preparation needed.
After the procedure, the patient is made to sit upright for two to five minutes to ensure the patient feels good, and laying down should be avoided for two to four hours. The treated area should not be disturbed for 3 hours after the treatment. Straining activities like heavy lifting or vigorous exercise must be avoided for 6 hours after treatment.
What changes are visible after Wrinkle Relaxation therapy?
After the therapy, you (and others too!) may notice:
- A visibly younger looking skin
- A reduction in wrinkles
- Well shaped and positioned brow due to relaxation of brow muscles
- A decrease in excessive sweating
Will I need multiple sessions?
The effects of wrinkle relaxation therapy will last for about three to four months, so multiple sessions are required. It is administered at longer intervals to help you recover well between sessions. The number of sessions will vary according to the personal requirement.
