Small diluted amounts of wrinkle eraser solution is directly injected into specific muscles causing controlled weakening of the muscles.
The FDA approved such usage in the late 1980s upon the discovery that Botox could stop ailments like blepharospasm (uncontrolled blinking) and strabismus (lazy eye). Cosmetic physicians have been using muscle relaxant solutions for years to successfully treat wrinkles and facial creases. In April 2002, Botox gained FDA approval for treatment of moderate-to-severe frown lines between the eyebrows - called glabellar lines. However, These relaxant is often used for other areas of the face as well.
These solutions are also injected into the skin to treat the symptoms of severe underarm sweating (severe
primary axillary hyperhidrosis) when medicines used on the skin (topical) do not work well enough
in people 18 years and older. Also used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults younger than
65 years of age for a short period of time (temporary).
Does it Work?
Signals from the nerves to the muscles are blocked. The injected muscle can no longer contract, which causes the wrinkles to relax and soften.
It is most often used on forehead lines, crow's feet (lines around the eye) and frown lines. Wrinkles caused by sun damage and gravity will not respond to relaxants.
The procedure takes only a few minutes and no anesthesia is required. Relaxants is injected with a fine needle into specific muscles with only minor discomfort. It generally takes three to seven days to take full effect and it is best to avoid alcohol at least one week prior to treatment. Aspirin and anti-inflammatory medications should be stopped two weeks before treatment as well in order to reduce bruising.
