Also referred to as Onabotulinum toxin A, BOTOX Cosmetic is a purified protein and neurotoxin complex that, when injected directly into the muscle, will cause relaxation. Produced in a controlled laboratory setting from the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum, BOTOX Cosmetic works by blocking the chemical signal that allows for nerve impulses to be sent to the muscle and cause movement.
Dynamic wrinkles are formed by repetitive creasing in the skin, from the facial expressions that we make on a daily basis. Over time these wrinkles can become large, deep and permanent. Muscle Relaxer Injection works by relaxing these muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles, so the skin is given a chance to smooth out naturally.
A common misconception is that Muscle Relaxer Injection will completely inhibit facial expression and movement. The goal of a treatment is to soften facial lines, while still providing patients with a natural appearance and the ability to display emotion.
Muscle Relaxer Injection is one of the leading procedures in the cosmetic and aesthetics field around the world.
While primarily used for cosmetic purposes, over the years, doctors have discovered Muscle Relaxer Injection can be effective to help to people with other conditions.
This condition is more commonly known as excessive sweating. Hyperhidrosis occurs when the hypothalamus—the part of the brain that controls body temperature—overacts and signals sweat glands to start working. A problem with the sympathetic nervous system, which connects the hypothalamus to the sweat glands, may also be at fault.
It is unknown exactly what causes hyperhidrosis, but it is known that bouts may be triggered by a variety of things such as exercise, spicy food, and anxiety.
If an individual suffers from hyperhidrosis, and it is not the result of another medical condition or medication, then it is known as primary focal hyperhidrosis. This means that the medical condition is hyperhidrosis itself, and it is not a side effect of something else. Generally, the condition develops at an early age and lasts for life.
Those with primary focal hyperhidrosis experience excessive sweating on certain parts of the body, such as the face, hands, feet and underarms—areas that have a high concentration of sweat glands. If one side of the body is affected, then in most cases, the other side is affected as well, making it symmetrical. Bouts do not typically occur during sleep.
Excessive sweating concentrated in the underarm area is known as primary axillary hyperhidrosis.This can be particularly embarrassing as the condition can be visible to others when sweat soaks through clothing. In cases of severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis, no amount of antiperspirant reduces the amount of sweat produced under the arms. At Artes radiance, we offer treatment with Muscle Relaxer Injection to address excessive underarm sweating.
Yes. Muscle Relaxer Injection is one of the most researched prescription drugs in the world and is FDA approved.
No. After your treatment, you can resume your usual daily activities right away.
Most patients report that they can hardly feel a treatment. Since the needle used to inject Muscle Relaxer is very fine, the most you will probably feel is a little pinprick. A topical numbing agent will be applied to the treatment area prior to the injections, to ensure any discomfort is minimized.
On average, Muscle Relaxer Injection results will last three to four months. Around the three-month mark, you will notice the gradual movement of the treated area, and reappearance of dynamic wrinkles. If you keep up with your scheduled injections, the results will last longer, and you'll find you need to come in less often.
The point of a Muscle Relaxer Injection treatment is to soften fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment will not radically change your facial expressions or appearance, nor will it make you look “frozen”
You can receive subsequent treatments with a minimum of three months between each one.
Gradually, you'll notice that your wrinkles will start to appear the way they did before your Muscle Relaxer Injection. They will not look worse, but they will get progressively deeper over time if you do not continue treatments, due to the natural aging process.
No. Absolutely not. Muscle Relaxer Injection is not intended for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Muscle Relaxer Injection is meant to soften and prevent fine line and wrinkle formation. Dermal fillers are meant to plump and fill areas on the face. If you are a good candidate, you may be able to combine both procedures in the same treatment session.
Any medical professional or facility offering Muscle Relaxer Injection should be certified to perform the procedure, in good standing with their governing medical organization, and should work out of modern and clean facilities. They should also have good knowledge of facial anatomy, and be someone you feel absolutely comfortable with and can trust. Above all, they must be licensed to administer Muscle Relaxer Injection.
No. If you're bothered by signs of aging, or you want to prevent wrinkle formation you can get Muscle Relaxer Injection treatment as long as you are 18 or older.
