A wrinkle, also known as a rhytide, is a fold, ridge or crease in the skin or on fabric. Skin wrinkles typically appear as a result of aging processes such as glycation, habitual sleeping positions, loss of body mass, or temporarily, as the result of prolonged immersion in water. Age wrinkling in the skin is promoted by habitual facial expressions, aging, sun damage, smoking, poor hydration, and various other factors
What Are the Treatment Options for Wrinkles?
Treatment with BOTOX Injection
A highly purified protein when injected into a specific area of skin by skin specialist, it makes the muscles relax so not to be able to create muscular movement and wrinkles. The effect may take up to 3-5 days for the maximum effect to be apparent where the area becomes smooth and relaxed and wrinkle free.
Botox® removes and smooths out areas where you have wrinkles to create a fresh and youthful look. The effects of smoothing the muscle does not allow the wrinkle to form as deeply as it would with constant muscle movement so more people are having it to reduce wrinkles forming as well as smoothing out existing ones. Other option to Botox is Microdermabrasion or “Skin polishing”
The effect of botox® significantly reduces wrinkles in the forehead, between the eye brows, crows feet, lines around the mouth and bunny lines on the nose to reveal a line free, fresher more youthful appearance.
It is also used for excessive sweating problems known as Hyperhidrosis, Botox can significantly reduce this embarrassing problem by regular injections into the areas such as hands and armpits
Many users of botox® into the forehead area have reported the reduction in headaches and effects of migraine due to the relaxation of the muscle that is used for frowning.
Having Botox does not have to render you without expression. Our highly experienced team of consultants assessment process allows them to visualise your facial function and minimise any possible loss of facial expression.
Side effects are minimal and will be discussed with you as part of the assessment consultation.
2 What is Hyperhidrosis?
A medical condition that causes too much sweating, hyperhidrosis can interfere with a person’s daily activities. Sweating is necessary when there are messages from brain that the body temperature is high but at times there may be excessive perspiration that can drain energy and cause difficulty in performing daily activities.
Extreme physical activities, exercises and excessive amounts of certain hormones do cause sweating. However, if you have hyperhidrosis, sweat glands tend to overreact to stimuli and may also be generally overactive to produce more sweat than is necessary.
Excessive sweating from face, underarms, hands, palms or sweat literally dripping from body are the signs of hyperhidrosis. You may also notice the following symptoms:
- Visible beads of sweat on skin even when climatic conditions are not very adverse, or you are not exerting yourself.
- Difficulties in daily activities because of sweating – for instance problem in walking, difficulty in holding a pen, or working on computer.
- Skin turning soft, white and flaky in areas of excessive sweating
- Skin infections like jock itch and athletes foot.
Treatment of Excessive sweating
Medical treatment for hyperhidrosis involves the use of prescription medications and antiperspirants approved by your dermatologist. At times, surgical techniques are employed to remove some overactive sweat glands. Sympathectomy is a form of special surgery for treating the disorder.
Botulinum toxin or BOTOX® injections are now used to control excessive sweating especially from underarms and Skin Alive also has this procedure for treatment of hyperhidrosis. BOTOX® injections temporary block a chemical that stimulates the sweat glands in the body. You will notice results in four to five days after receiving the treatment. Reduced sweating lasts for four to six months and sometimes even longer. If the problem of excessive sweating returns, you can take another dosage of BOTOX®.
