Treatments aimed at reducing wrinkles and expression lines through injections have gained popularity in the field of aesthetic medicine. However, despite their increasing prevalence, they still carry some outdated and often unfounded beliefs.

In this article, we will debunk the myths surrounding these procedures and provide you with some interesting facts that you might not have known about expression line treatments.

These procedures utilize neuroblocking substances that work by temporarily relaxing facial muscles, thereby helping to smooth and minimize the appearance of wrinkles. These solutions are administered safely and effectively to achieve a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance on the face. These non-invasive techniques offer remarkable and long-lasting results, allowing you to enhance your natural beauty and boost your self-confidence.

It’s understandable that there are doubts and concerns about this popular aesthetic treatment. Something worth noting is that the goal is not to alter the patient’s face, but to enhance their features naturally and achieve the best version of themselves. The fear of the unknown often leads to believing the myths circulating about anti-wrinkle treatments with neuromodulators. However, the truth is that when done correctly, you don’t end up with a frozen or artificial appearance. On the contrary, the face continues to express emotions, but with a smoother and rejuvenated appearance. The perfect balance between authenticity and enhancement is achieved.

Myths about anti-wrinkle medical treatments.

Myth 1: “Anti-wrinkle treatments will make you look artificial.”

When the treatment is administered properly by a qualified professional, the results are subtle and natural. It doesn’t take away the ability to express, but rather smoothens wrinkles and expression lines to achieve a rejuvenated appearance.

Myth 2: “They are only for older people.”

Neuromodulators can be used in individuals of different ages who wish to address expression lines and prevent the formation of wrinkles. It can also be used to treat medical conditions like hyperhidrosis.

Myth 3: “They are dangerous treatments.”

There is concern about the safety of these injectable substances. However, when used in appropriate amounts and administered by qualified professionals, they are safe and effective. For over 20 years, they have been used with highly satisfactory results.

Myth 4: “Neuroblocker treatment is permanent.”

Neuroblockers are temporary, and their effects typically last from three to six months. After this period, the muscles return to their normal activity, and wrinkles gradually reappear. That’s why, if we continue relaxing the muscle that causes it, the wrinkle becomes smoother over time.

Other uses of neuroblockers that you may not be aware of

Neuroblockers have other uses besides being one of the leading treatments to eliminate expression wrinkles around the eyes, between the eyebrows, and on the forehead. In fact, their use in medicine began in the field of ophthalmology to treat strabismus (crossed eyes) without surgery. Upon noticing that patients’ expression wrinkles were also being reduced, it started being used in the field of aesthetic medicine for this purpose, achieving significant results.

As this medication was used more extensively, other medical applications were discovered, and currently, it’s used in many specialties such as neurology, traumatology, urology, and many others.

Control of hyperhidrosis.

Hyperhidrosis is characterized by excessive and uncontrollable sweating. Neuroblockers are used to treat hyperhidrosis by blocking the release of acetylcholine in sweat glands, which reduces sweat production in the treated areas.

Treatment of bruxism.

Bruxism is a condition in which a person involuntarily clenches or grinds their teeth. It can occur both during the day and at night, and in many cases, people are not even aware that they are doing it.

Bruxism can lead to dental wear, jaw muscle pain, headaches, and other issues related to the temporomandibular joint. It’s often associated with stress, anxiety, or misalignment of the teeth.

The treatment with neuroblockers is focused on relaxing the masseter muscle, which involuntarily contracts and causes bruxism.

Relief of chronic migraines.

Neuroblockers have been shown to be effective in the treatment of chronic migraines. By injecting them into specific points around the head and neck, the frequency and intensity of migraines can be reduced, providing relief to patients.

Improvement of the appearance of scars.

In some cases, neuroblockers can be used to soften the appearance of scars. By relaxing the muscles around the scar, tension on the skin can be reduced, leading to an overall improvement in its appearance.

Emotional benefits of anti-wrinkle treatments.

Anti-wrinkle treatments not only enhance people’s physical appearance but also offer a range of benefits that can evoke positive emotions and have a significant emotional impact on those undergoing these treatments.

By reducing facial wrinkles and creating a smoother, more youthful appearance, these treatments can boost self-confidence as individuals feel more secure in their physical appearance.

By relaxing the facial muscles, a sense of calmness and relaxation in the facial expression can be achieved. This can contribute to an overall sense of emotional well-being, as tensions are reduced and a more serene facial appearance is promoted. There are even studies indicating that individuals with depression experience improved mood after these treatments.

It’s important to emphasize that each person can have a different emotional experience regarding neuromodulator treatments, and it’s crucial to have proper evaluation and guidance from medical professionals before making any decisions about the treatment.
