Muscle Relaxing Injections

We would all love smooth, perfect skin and this feeling increases as we start to see the first signs of ageing such as fine lines and wrinkles. It’s easy to lose self-confidence during these times, but help is at hand at aesthetics inc botox clinic with our safe and effective Botox – Botulinum Toxin – anti-wrinkle muscle relaxant treatments for both men and women.

Wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. It’s not just about cellular changes, collagen depletion, hormone loss, or damage caused by free radicals. Those vertical lines that appear between your brows – result from muscle contractions. When you concentrate, squint, or frown, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. After years of frequent contraction, those wrinkles can linger even after the muscles are at rest. BOTOX® Cosmetic anti-wrinkle treatment works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes the persistent lines to form between the brows

Our muscle relaxant Botox treatment – administered from our friendly clinic – can eliminate a number of problem areas including crow’s feet (wrinkles around the eyes), forehead lines, glabella (between the eyes), and if you are a smoker; even those so-called ‘smoker’s lines’ around the mouth area.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

Over time, the ageing process and years of frowning can cause fine lines and wrinkles both at the sides of the eyes (known as ‘crow’s feet’) and under the eyes, which can make you appear aged and tired. Botox (Botulinum toxin) injections at our clinic are an effective way to temporarily eliminate those lines and rejuvenate your appearance.

Is Botox safe for your eyes?

Botox (Botulinum toxin) has been FDA-approved with eye safety in mind as it is often used to treat blepharospasm or uncontrollable eyelid twitching. At aesthetics inc your practitioner will take precautions to prevent any possible Botox side effects including droopy eyelids, double or blurred vision, swollen eyelids and dry eyes. If you experience any of these following your treatment, please call us.

Forehead lines develop as we age as over time due to contracting the muscles that make us concentrate, frown or squint. These forehead lines are one of the easiest types of lines to correct. A small amount of Botox will relax the overactive muscles and significantly reduce or eliminate the wrinkles over time.

Frown lines are the vertical lines between the eyebrows (also known as the glabellar) that occur over time due to ageing and frowning. The older we become, the more prominent they are and cause a person to look angry, tired or stressed. Botox injections to the glabellar help reduce the frown lines and also can prevent the lines from becoming deeper.

A Botox brow lift can help lift up the brows for a more youthful appearance and is effective for those who have low hanging eyebrows. The Botox brow lift literally ‘lifts’ the skin tissues above and around the eyebrows so that the natural eyebrow arch is slightly raised.

‘Bunny lines’ are the diagonal lines which appear on the side of the nose when scrunching the face and can be treated with Botox injections on the lateral aspects of the nose. When having the frown area treated your practitioner may suggest treating this area also if you are prone to these lines.

Ageing around the jawline and the neck area can make an individual appear much older than they are, but with Botox injections around the jawline and into the platysma muscle can give a tightened appearance and reducing the jowls, like a non-surgical facelift.

Treatment for Hyperhidrosis using Muscle Relaxing Injections

By far the most effective and hassle free treatment for Hyperhidrosis is Botulinum Toxin (Botox) injections. The treatment can be performed at our clinic and takes around twenty minutes and involves having lots of small injections just under the skin of the affected area.

Everybody sweats. It’s a normal part of how our bodies regulate temperature. However, people with hyperhidrosis produce sweat in amounts far greater than needed to control their temperature.

For some people, hyperhidrosis can be linked to an underlying condition such as a disorder of the thyroid or pituitary glands, diabetes mellitus, gout, menopause and certain drugs. For them treating the underlying condition may also resolve their hyperhidrosis, although in most cases hyperhidrosis occurs in people that are otherwise healthy. Possible triggers include; Excessive heat, heightened emotions, and even minimal physical activities.

Hyperhidrosis can either be generalised or localised to specific parts of the body. Hands, feet, armpits, and the groin area are among the most active regions of perspiration due to the relatively high concentration of sweat glands; however, any part of the body may be affected.

Hyperhidrosis can also be classified depending by onset, either congenital or acquired. Primary hyperhidrosis is found to start during adolescence or even before and seems to be inherited as a genetic trait. Secondary hyperhidrosis can start at any point in life.

Frequently Asked Questions

Many people who suffer from it have suffered for many years, often from childhood or sometimes from adolescence. Hot or cold, the sweating is constant, and the impact of hyperhidrosis can be severe. Wetness and staining of clothes, clammy hands and sodden smelly shoes, inability to grip objects such as pens, cold and wet handshake, damage to keyboards and difficulty dealing with paper and metals, can make a miserable existence.

You may constantly worry about changing clothes, freshening up, using absorbent pads or sticking with loose black or white clothes, and may avoid making friends or interacting with people at work. Patients report that they are even embarrassed to hold the hands of those they love. Loneliness, depression and decreased confidence can result. People with hyperhidrosis may sweat even when the temperature is cool or when they are at rest.

It may hurt minimally, the injections themselves are relatively painless as the needles used are so fine, its the Botox itself that can feel like a small sting.

Botox injections work by blocking the nerves in the affected area that control sweat glands.
