As we age, wrinkles will appear on our faces. In order to reduce these wrinkles and make ourselves look younger, some people choose to inject anti-wrinkle aesthetic products, so today we will talk about some related questions about anti-wrinkle injections for forehead lines.
1. If I start the anti-wrinkle injection once, will my face get worse if I don't continue the injection?
In fact, once you start, the probability that you want to stop is very low! Wrinkles develop over time. They occur in places where the muscle beneath the skin contracts and relaxes with different animations (For example: when someone is using their face to demonstrate an emotion: laughing, smiling, frowning in anger when surprised or horrified, theses area may occur wrinkles). As we age, we are losing collagen and elastin, which will make our skin water-free and cause wrinkles. The anti-wrinkle treatment relaxes the muscles in the injected area. This relaxed state makes the skin look smoother. If you stop the injection, the muscles will move/contract normally and the lines will recover. The lines will appear again, but they will not be worse than before the treatment.
2. What is a brow droop and is it permanent?
We know that brows are lifted by the muscle in the forehead. In fact, it is the only elevating muscle in the top part of the face. A brow droop occurs when the muscle above the brow has been treated in its entirety. It feels quite restrictive if you cannot lift the brow at all and this is what a brow drop is. Depending on the dose injected, the feeling will last between 2-12 weeks. The muscle will recover in time. It is not permanent.
3. What is an eyelid droop?
An eyelid droop happens when an anti-wrinkle product either leaks or is injected into the ligament that allows the eyelid to open and shut. It can happen during a frown treatment or if incorrectly administered for a brow lift. Again the longevity of this result depends on the dose and whether it leaked into the area.
4. Will I bruise?
Any time you put a needle into tissue there is a chance of causing bleeding and bruising. The size of the bruise will depend on the structure that has been punctured. The size of the bruise may also be impacted by physical activity and medications/alcohol. If you have any events upcoming, then you ideally would have a treatment 3-4 weeks prior in order to allow time for bruising to settle but also for the result to look its best.
