1. How do wrinkle treatment injections prevent wrinkles?
In helping to stall the effects of aging on facial skin, this wrinkle treatment injection is popular because of its proven results. A controlled dosage of a highly diluted solution relaxes muscle contraction by blocking nerve impulses. As a result, muscles no longer contract and the skin relaxes, thereby softening wrinkles.
The effect may not be instant. It may take up to four days for noticeable cosmetic result with effects lasting up to six months after the treatment.
2. Will a wrinkle injection treatment make me numb and look frozen?
You will feel a numbing sensation in treated areas, but this doesn’t necessarily translate into a “frozen look”. It happens when there is poor judgment and execution on the part of an inexperienced or untrained injector. A good doctor will know the appropriate amount of solution that is needed to create natural-looking results in the targeted areas.
