What is an Anti-Aging Injection?
Here Is Everything You Need to Know
Our skin bears the signs of living. Every laugh and frown leaves marks. Pollution, stress, and illness also leave marks. Thus, some people appear older than they really are. However, you can now turn back the time that passed too fast and regain your youthful looks with an anti-aging treatment. But what is an anti-aging injection, and how safe is it for you?
Dispelling the Myths
Many people note the “tox” part in Botox. It is true – this means that anti-aging injections are a toxin. In the case of Botox, its scientific name is botulinum toxin type A. And yes, it is the same toxin that causes botulism, a very severe illness.
However, in nature and science, everything depends on the dosage. All drugs are meant to heal conditions. But if you exceed the recommended dose, they do harm. The same thing is true about anti-aging injections. Healthcare professionals use a very weak concentration of the toxin. Moreover, Botox is approved by the FDA, having passed many clinical trials.
Now that you know what an anti-aging injection is, let us show you how we use it.
Anti-Aging Injections in Cosmetic Treatments
The anti-aging injection essentially treats your nerves. You have nerve endings everywhere in your body from the top of your head to the tip of your toes. And, yes, you also have nerves all over your face, including:
- Around the lips
- Around the eyes
- Along the forehead
So what does the anti-aging injection do in cosmetic treatments? It blocks or weakens these nerves for a period of time, thus preventing the nerves from sending signals to your muscles. In turn, the muscles no longer contract, and your skin becomes smoother.
You Will Be Able to Smile After the Procedure
When reading various articles on the question “what is Botox?” you may find this common myth: the injections paralyze your face, and you will not be able to smile and make facial expressions.
This is not true. While wrinkles and lines disappear, you will continue to be able to move your features. So, the answer to the myth is no, you will not be left with a blank, frozen face.
What the Injections Used for Beyond Cosmetic Purposes?
In our wellness center, we use Botox for various purposes. It is a very good solution for people with unpleasant or painful conditions, such as:
