Get The Complete Process and Know What Happens During A Wrinkle reduction treatment

Wrinkle reduction treatment is one of the few cosmetic treatments that can truly be described as a ‘lunchtime’ procedure. The injections can be done in a matter of minutes (after a proper consultation) and there are usually little or no signs of treatment other than a bit of redness and in rare cases some mild bruising (Read: Wrinkle reduction treatment After Care Advice).

It is important nonetheless to understand the actual Wrinkle reduction treatment Cosmetic procedure to its last detail. It might be a little scary to imagine as a needle is involved and injections are not something any one looks forward to but Wrinkle reduction treatment is nearly painless and if done right, you won’t feel a thing.

So once you have decided to go ahead with treatment, here’s what you should expect!

The doctor or nurse who is treating you will usually ask you to remove any make-up. They will then ask you to make facial expressions while they mark out the points they are going to inject. Small amounts of botulinum toxin are then injected into your muscles with a very fine needle.

The material that Wrinkle reduction Injections come in are a crystalline substance from the manufacturer, which then has to be reconstituted with saline or another liquid. Practitioners add varying amounts of liquid when reconstituting the Wrinkle reduction treatment injection. Although there is no right or wrong amount of liquid to add, most physicians add about 2 ml-3 ml (about a half a teaspoon) of liquid to each vial of Wrinkle reduction Injections. Some add quite a bit more, which can lead patients to think they are getting more Wrinkle reduction treatment when, in reality, they are getting the same or less amount of Wrinkle reduction treatment than samples reconstituted in a stronger way.

It is the total dose of medication, not the volume of liquid that leads to the desired effect.

Therefore, it is important to remember that if a clinic or medical spa states that they are providing Wrinkle reduction treatment at a certain dollar amount per unit, it is quite possible that they are diluting the Wrinkle reduction treatment and actually not providing the agreed-upon amount. This is much like the concept of a watered-down drink at a bar, but the costs are much larger when it comes to Wrinkle reduction treatment or its alternatives, Dysport and Xeomin.

It is also important to know that you do not need any kind of anesthetic for Botulinum toxin injections as they are virtually painless. You will feel a pinprick. Some areas, such as round the eyes, can be a little more sensitive but the treatment is so quick, it is very bearable. Some people do opt to have an anesthetic cream applied to numb the skin but for most it is not necessary.

So the injection is normally carried out without anesthesia and takes only a few minutes, the time to inject 5-7 places of the face. The Doctor will then ask you to do some contraction exercises to “fix” the product. Small red spots may appear immediately after treatment, but they fade after a few minutes. Your Doctor will schedule a follow up visit in the coming weeks to ensure that the result exactly meets your expectations.
