Beauty injections Beauty injections

Facial or beauty injections are a fast and effective procedure to eliminate wrinkles temporarily. Injections are performed with Botox and Restylane.
Botox or botulinum toxin is a a neurotoxic protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum, and used used in very small doses to treat muscle spasms or namely the following:

  • neck muscle dystonia (contortions of the muscles of neck and/or shoulder)
  • blepharospasms
  • strabismus or squinting
  • excessive sweating
  • smoothing and eliminating
  • wrinkles

Restylane is the trade name for a specific formulation of non-animal sourced hyaluronic acid most commonly used for lip augmentation. This is a clear sterile gel composed of stabilized hyaluronic acid. Restylane resembles the non-stabilized hyaluronic acid found in the body, which helps to optimize the water content of skin cells and connective tissue, guaranteeing normal skin moisture and suppleness.

How does beauty injection work

Botox is used mainly to smooth wrinkles or frown lines between the eyebrows by tightening of the muscles. It's good also for the horizontal wrinkles on the forehead and for the crow's feet at the outer corner of the eyes.
Botox creates weakness or paralyzes the specific muscle that causes the wrinkle or blocks nerve signals, so that the muscle cannot tighten any more and therefore the wrinkle is less visible. Due to Botox's paralyzing effect, it cannot be used for wrinkles around the mouth, since it would hinder eating and talking and would make your facial expressions unnatural. Botox is also not suitable for wrinkles caused by sun shine. Botox dissolves in blood with time and muscles recover their normal functions.

Restylane can smooth all the wrinkles of the face, both the wrinkles around your mouth and at the outer corner of the eye; it is also used to fill cheeks and enhance lips. Restylane penetrates the inward layers of the skin and fills the wrinkles to make them smoother. Your body will clear away restilane with time.

Making beauty injections in clinics

Botox injections are not painful, but create discomfort, so surgeon might use an anesthetic cream. The injection sites are cleaned prior to that and the surgeon will make small markings. Next, Botox is injected to the muscle that causes the wrinkle, which may not be exactly under the wrinkle. Botulin found in Botox will fix to the nerve endings, hindering the muscle to contract.

Before and after procedure

Botox and Restylane are effective to remove all types of wrinkles. Their effectiveness depends on skin type and thickness and how deep are the wrinkles. You should not have Botox injections while being pregnant or nursing.

You should provide your doctor with:

  • medical records
  • information about chronic diseases
  • medications and vitamins you are taking
  • and whether you have had any problems with facial nerves or muscles.

The effects of Botox will appear in 3–7 seven days or few weeks after the procedure and will last up to 3-4 months; for Restylane results lasts for 6 months or longer. Effects of next procedure will last longer because muscle may become diminutive and the patient may develop muscular atrophy.

One can continue with everyday life right after the procedure. Although some headache or flu symptoms are possible. One can use make-up in the injection site, but should be careful with rubbing or massaging face for the first 48 hours. One should also avoid direct sunlight and going to the sauna at first.

Taking care of own beauty

The first wrinkles will appear around the eyes where the skin is especially thin. It may happen already in your twenties. Facial skin will become drier and more drooping during the thirties.
With time, you'll have the following changes with skin:

  • collagen and elastin start to break down
  • water content in skin decreases
  • cell regeneration slows down
  • Excessive sunlight (also solarium) dries the skin and affects the collagen and elastin in your skin
  • UV-radiation is often the reason behind premature wrinkles
  • Smoking dries the skin and the facial expressions during smoking form wrinkles around your mouth
  • Mimics specific wrinkles

Additional and maybe quicker ways to fight the wrinkles are different skin rejuvenating procedures, e.g. chemical skin peeling, micro peeling, micro and laser polishing, etc. A new way to use Restylane exists where "fern pattern" injection technique aims to restore dermal elasticity rather than to fill underneath the wrinkles.
It is possible to smooth your wrinkles a little with these procedures and make your face look fresh and shining. Facelift can also help with getting rid of wrinkles, but though the result is long-lasting, the recovery is also long.
