Aging, genetics, gravity, sun damage, and muscle movement are a few causes of facial lines and wrinkles. Wrinkles, horizontal forehead lines, crow’s feet, and neckbands are all signs of facial expression muscles. Muscular movement is partially accountable for these lines if they are accentuated or made worse by creating that expression.
Prescription drugs called wrinkle releasers are injected into the facial muscles. They function by stopping nerve signals from reaching the injected muscles. It lessens muscular activity, decreasing the wrinkles brought on by muscle contraction.
What are wrinkle releasers?
Wrinkle releasers are treatments that reduce facial wrinkles and fine lines. Mature skin frequently develops wrinkles from decreased collagen or increased skin laxity, with some wrinkles appearing as early as the mid-30s. These procedures can effectively and rapidly address all fine lines and wrinkles.
Generally speaking, any part of the face can benefit from treatments to relax wrinkles. It comprises lines on the forehead that run horizontally, lines between the brows that run vertically, and, in especially, “expression lines” around the lips and nose.
At Reclaim Men’s Clinic, we use the brand Jeuveau to block muscle movement. Like Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin, Jeuveau is used to temporarily lessen the appearance of frown lines between the brows, sometimes known as the “11s” or glabellar lines.
What areas can be treated by wrinkle releasers?
This medicine, which was first created to treat glabellar lines, or the creases on the forehead between your eyes, is now a rival to other injectables. The most typical locations for treatment also comprise:
- crow’s feet in the corners of the eyes
- forehead lines to lessen wrinkles
- laugh line around the mouth
This product is frequently used off-label to treat numerous facial areas needing an anti-aging rescue because it was approved for cosmetic use. Consequently, lines caused by smoking, laughing, or frowning can all be smoother. You will require two to three sessions yearly to maintain your desired results because it is a temporary procedure.
How do wrinkle releasers work?
The muscles in your face don’t contract for a time because wrinkle releasers inhibit muscular contractions. Wrinkles often appear on the forehead and face when muscles are pulled and squeezed repeatedly. No matter what facial emotion you make, such as a frown or a grin, wrinkles will ultimately appear.
In wrinkle releasers, a pure protein solution known as botulinum toxin is contained. The botulinum toxin used in injections is produced by the bacteria Clostridium botulinum. Botulinum toxin, popularly known as “the wonder poison,” is a solid biological poison that, when handled properly, may be utilized to heal medical and aesthetic conditions.
The neurotoxin will stop sending chemical signals from the nerve terminals after being administered. The electrical impulses from the brain that cause muscle activity won’t reach the muscle when injected.
Neurotoxins are poisonous substances that have an adverse effect on nerve function. For instance, the nerve signaling system that activates muscles is disrupted by botulinum toxin. The botulinum toxin temporarily paralyzes targeted muscles by invading and impairing nerve cells.
Wrinkle releasers are growing in popularity because of their advantageous effects. No surgery is necessary, and only a few injections are needed.
What to expect during your treatment?
Your health practitioner at Reclaim Men’s Clinic will lay out a plan during your consultation that will be used during your treatment session. The steps for Jeuveau typically include the following:
- Any makeup or cosmetics covering the treatment area will be removed.
- After that, Jeuveau will be injected into different locations along your frown lines utilizing a series of tiny injections.
- It might take up to 15 minutes to complete. You don’t need to wait to leave when the injections are finished.
- Your underlying muscles will relax when the botulinum toxin takes effect, smoothing out the look of your frown lines. You could get some preliminary findings immediately, and complete results should appear in approximately a week.
In contrast to cosmetic surgery, wrinkle releaser injections don’t require recovery time. You can return to work and carry on with your regular daily routines. However, be mindful not to massage the injection site to prevent adverse effects from the active components from spreading.
After several weeks to months, the effects of botulinum toxin injections will gradually go away on their own. You’ll need to arrange another round of injections to keep your results, but you should wait at least three months between each treatment.
What are the benefits of wrinkle releasers?
The aesthetic advantages of using this treatment are the most significant ones. Patients benefit from a more youthful appearance due to this product’s ability to soften lines and enhance the appearance of wrinkles. Almost all patients will start to experience benefits in two to three days. However, some say their wrinkles were relaxed and less apparent within 24 hours following treatment.
This therapy can also avoid new wrinkles since it gradually restricts your muscles’ ability to make specific motions. This non-invasive procedure doesn’t need surgery, causes no downtime, and causes minor pain. Following the injections, patients can quickly return to their regular activities. Finally, effects are visible immediately after treatment and persist for a time.
How long do the results last?
Jeuveau is known to last for three to six months, in contrast to the three to four months that Botox and Dysport both endure simultaneously. If you combine your wrinkle releaser treatment with other aesthetic procedures, including dermal fillers or energy-based therapies, your benefits may last longer.
To achieve optimum outcomes, it is also advised to receive follow-up treatments. When the effects of their initial injections start to diminish, most patients choose to have follow-up treatments, which can entail having regular doses three to four times each year.
Your response to therapy and the substance used will determine how frequently you visit. Additionally, you’ll probably need to switch between several things to avoid developing a tolerance to any one product in particular.
Let go of those wrinkles with wrinkle releasers.
Of course, scheduling a consultation session is the first step to looking younger. We will be better equipped to recommend the proper course of therapy created particularly for your requirements once we have checked your skin and spoken with you about your concerns.
