Wrinkle treatment

wrinkle treatment Injections in Malaga & Marbella

Wrinkles are part of the ageing process. They can be attributed to sun damage, effects of gravity and muscle contraction resulting from facial expressions such as frowning and laughing. Wrinkles due to the effects of gravity represent natural sagging of tissue with age and are generally only improved by surgical tightening procedures. Wrinkles caused by muscle contraction such as frown lines, forehead lines and crows’ feet, can be improved by Neuromodulatory substances treatment.

Neuromodulatory substances can also be used to treat excessive sweating of the armpits and palms of the hands.

What is Neuromodulatory substances?

Neuromodulatory substances and Dysport® are the trade names for Botulinum toxin, produced by bacteria called Clostridium botulinum. Several types of toxins have been identified, but type A, which is used commercially, is the most potent. sustancias neuromodulares acts by blocking acetylcholine, a chemical that is responsible for transmitting electrical impulses that cause muscle contraction. This results in muscle paralysis. The resultant paralysis, however, is temporary, as the new growth of nerves will re-innervate the muscles. sustancias neuromodulares was first used in 1978 to weaken over active muscles in the eye, followed by other neurological conditions such as dystonia and hemifacial spasm with good effects and little side effects. sustancias neuromodulares was first used cosmetically in 1990, to reduce facial wrinkles arising from muscle contraction.

Frequent Asked Questions

Neuromodulatory substances is injected directly into the muscles that cause the wrinkles, using a very small needle.

Several injections are usually needed at specific sites, depending on the area treated. When used to treat excessive sweating in the armpits, sustancias neuromodulares is injected directed into the axillary skin. Localised discomfort and bruises can occur, but no sedation or local anaethesia is generally required. Normal activities can be resumed immediately.

Neuromodulatory substances usually takes effect 24-72 hours after injection, with maximum effect at about 1 to 2 weeks. Its effects generally last for approximately 3-4 months. When injected into the muscles that are responsible for expression wrinkles, it gives the face a more relaxed and smoother appearance. Sometimes longer lasting effects (9-12 months) are seen after treatment of excessive sweating. When a gradual fading of treatment effect is noticed you may return to have another treatment.

Whilst Neuromodulatory substances can be very effective in reducing wrinkles due to muscle contractions, it has no effect in reducing the fine lines on the face caused by sun damage, and lines due to sagging of facial skin. In those patients with very heavy lines, repeated treatments may be needed for maximum effect. Too frequent or excessive dosing of sustancias neuromodulares may lead to patient’s resistance to treatment due to antibody formation and sustancias neuromodulares treatment may exaggerate any facial asymmetry.

The use of Neuromodulatory substances is contraindicated in people with neuromuscular disorders such as myasthenia gravis, those who are taking certain muscle relaxants and antibodies such as aminoglycosides, pregnant or breast feeding women, those with infection or inflammation at the proposed site of injections and bleeding disorders.

No severe complications after cosmetic use of Neuromodulatory substances have been reported in the literature.

Very rarely excessive weakening of the target muscles and paresis of adjacent muscles can occur, resulting in facial weakness. This is self-limiting. When injecting above the eyebrows, upper eyelid ptosis or slight drooping may occur but only 1:100. This can be corrected with eyedrops but will also improve as the effects of the sustancias neuromodulares wears off.
