What are facial injectable?
Botox is a medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of frown lines between the brows for a short period of time. Crow’s feet, worry lines and laugh lines can all be a thing of the past. Cosmetic denervation is the process of injecting botox into the tiny facial muscles that create the wrinkles. It involves a simple, nonsurgical treatment that is injected directly into the muscles between the brows. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form between the brows.
Botox injections are normally performed without anesthesia because it is virtually painless. Only a very small sting is felt when the injections are made. The effects are not permanent and may need to be repeated two to three times per year to retain the effects. Research has suggested, however, that long term use of the injections leads to a longer duration of each treatment’s effect. Patients over the age of 65 may not experience as dramatic of results. Botox is only useful in treating expression lines and cannot be used to repair sagging skin caused by aging.
