But What Is Botox?
Botox Injections Melbourne CBD in it’s purest form is a purified protein toxin, produced by Clostridium botulinum bacteria, it is used to treat “dynamic wrinkles,” which are caused by repeated contraction of specific muscles just beneath the skin’s surface.
About the Anti Wrinkle Injections
During a Botox injection procedure, a Face and Hair clinic dermatologist injects a measured amount of Botox with a very small needle into the muscle creating the wrinkle. Botox blocks the nerve impulse from reaching the muscle and, as a result, the muscle becomes weaker. Botox’s intended effect on the muscle develops gradually over seven to ten days, during which the muscle becomes so weak that it allows little to no contraction. The overlying skin then relaxes and the wrinkles eventually soften and often disappear in the treated area.
There is a minor stinging sensation when the Botox is injected, which lasts for a few seconds. The Face and Hair Clinic dermatologist may apply ice to the treatment area for a few minutes immediately before the injections to reduce the discomfort and the amount of swelling. Usually there is no lasting discomfort after the injection. Patients can almost always resume normal activities immediately after the procedure.
The injected muscle will gradually regain normal function over the following months. The muscle recovery time varies among patients. Once the muscle is able to contract again, wrinkles will reappear, requiring the need for repeat injections to maintain results. After several treatments, the effect of Botox may last longer as the muscle becomes weakened.
