One of the most popular and extensively studied injectable treatments worldwide as Cosmetic neuromodulators , which helps to relax wrinkles and visibly signs of aging.
Cosmetic is a type of injectable treatment that blocks the nerve signals from reaching facial muscles. It’s made up of small amounts of botulinum toxin and works by preventing muscle activity which causes wrinkles, such as frown lines or crow’s feet. It treats multiple signs of aging like forehead lines and banding in neck, chin and lip areas.
Getting a neuromodulator injection takes only a few minutes.
You won’t need anesthesia, and the provider will use the smallest needle possible to inject botulinum toxin into specific muscles with very little discomfort.
It generally takes 7-14 days for full effect to take place. It’s best if you avoid alcohol starting at least one week before treatment, as well as aspirin and other anti-inflammatory medications two weeks before treatment in order to minimize bruising near your injections site – which should be avoided under all circumstances up until 24 hours after receiving your shots!
Your doctor may also tell you that it is beneficial for you not to exercise or move around on day of procedure (this can cause more bleeding) but instead stay upright and still for 4 hours following the shots so that there’s less likelihood of spreading any leftover product from an area already treated.You might feel some temporary weakness or cramping during this time period too.
Avoid rubbing these injection sites from now until 24 hr after receiving them because doing so could spread botulism toxin elsewhere too soon.
Cosmetic and medical uses
Aestethic Injectables are made from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum’s toxin. This same toxin causes life-threatening food poisoning called botulism, and doctors use it in small doses to treat health problems:
These injections work by weakening or paralyzing certain muscles or by blocking certain nerves. The effects last about three to twelve months, depending on what you are treating. The most common side effects are pain, swelling, or bruising at the injection site. You could also have flu-like symptoms, headache, and upset stomach. Injections in the face may also cause temporary drooping eyelids. You should not use it if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Have any question?
It can be used to address lines and wrinkles on a number of different facial areas, including the forehead, eye area (crow’s feet), and lip lines. It may be injected to soften dimpling of the chin. It can also be injected into the muscles of the jaw to help alleviate pain from teeth grinding or TMJ or for a jaw slimming effect. Some of these treatment areas may be considered off-label.
