How Neuromuscular Blocking Injections Can Turn Back the Hands of Time
- Posted on: Nov 30 2019
Glenn Dale, MD patients who are unhappy with the development of fine lines and wrinkles on their face may feel as though they must succumb to them. Or they may believe that the only treatment option available to them is plastic surgery. Luckily, the team of Callender Dermatology and Cosmetic Center offers solutions that can work—without the need for surgical intervention. Dr. Valerie Callender may encourage patients to consider the advantages of neuromuscular blocking injections.
What is a neuromuscular injection?
Traditionally, many patients who use injectables to address fine lines and wrinkles do so with dermal fillers. While these are also available at Callender Dermatology and Cosmetic Center, they are not the only way to achieve a more youthful appearance. Neuromuscular injections are blocking agents that reduce muscle tension. This works perfectly for specific wrinkles and folds on the face as it can eliminate concerns such as forehead folds, glabellar lines, and crows feet. All of these can benefit from neuromuscular blocking injections. The three primary brands of injections include Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin. All three are available at our practice.
Are neuromuscular injections safe?
Absolutely! Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin have all been approved by the FDA for cosmetic use. Additionally, some neuromuscular injections, such as Botox, have been used for decades to treat medical conditions such as cervical dystonia, overactive bladder, and hyperhidrosis. The medication reduces muscle contractions, sometimes up to nine months, which can smooth the skin and reduce the presence of wrinkles and folds caused by contraction of the muscles.
